That's a very good point. By both you and Thedub. Maybe Olds and Drumheller would draw more, but as a SJHL first kinda guy those rivalry games always do get a lot of buts in those seats (look at Melville, Yorkton right now.) But on the flip side, what about non rivalries? A home game for Drumheller would draw about 700-800 fans tops. That's one of the reason I wanted to make this league, for those "stronger" markets who can average 1200+ fans a game, and if we're in a more promising league could. As I read in a previous thread on another forum, "what's the point of having private boxes for an SJ game?" this league would give it a point.
