So theres that real bottom, to the bottom line.
Again I don't blame Columbus fans for a second either. Why would you pay to watch that club? I mean aside from them currently riding unlikely lightning.
Minor point: the Jackets under MacLean padded the attendance. When Howson arrived, the only number reported was actual people in the stands, not simply tickets out (sold or comped) whether they were used or not.
