This is a must read for all you out there who like to take shots at Florida every time we play them.

The TL;DR version is that although the attendance LOOKS bad, it really is not. The middle 3 sections facing the cameras (stupid decision yes to have it facing the cameras) are "Club Red". Basically those sections offer a buffet, open bar, HDTV's, etc above where many people are at during the section, particularly since it is all corporate seats now since that section had their prices increased 660%! in one year. Now obviously not all of those are sold either, but plenty of them are and either not in seats or not being used that game due to the corporate nature of the tickets. There's a video in the article showing the discrepancy of the two sides of the rink.

Basically don't attack something you don't understand.
