The Celtics became more popular during the Larry Bird era and the Bruins fanbase soured when Cherry was fired in 1979.

The Bruins fanbase has always been solid but for many years fans watched on TV but would not give Jacobs a dime. It took a decade for fans to finally embrace TD Garden as it never had the atmosphere of the old barn.
