They were noisy. Just ask Meltdown Nilstrop!

In 2006, the Admirals averaged 3900 for 11 home playoff games.
But there's always some excuse for Milwaukee's poor attendance, the Packers, the weather, no one cares about the first round, etc. It's all BS. If no one cares about the first round, why even have a team, because getting there is what the season is really all about. Other teams can draw at least close to average in the playoffs. When Lake Erie was in the playoffs in 2011 they averaged over 8,000 for their 4 first round dates. Why? Because the front office was very aggressive in marketing the games. Providence did OK last night. They had the same amount of time to market as Milwaukee, in a smaller market. How can lame-duck Houston outdraw Milwaukee? Do you think they spent a dime to market them, if anyone is left in the front office staff in Texas for them? Do the Admirals do ANY marketing at all? Do they go out in the public and create any awareness for the team and the playoffs? My guess is a big no to both.
