As I posted earlier. Even with poor ownership the Renegades averaged 22,173 and the Rough Riders from 1970 to 96 averaged 22,209. When the Alouettes came back in 1996 they have had an average attendance of 20,700. Torontoís average attendance sense 1996 is 24,269 Hamiltonís average is 20,836 for the same period and the last few seasons BC has averaged just over 22,000. Keep in mind that both Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto are about four times our size in population. Ottawa football fans have always supported their team. If Toronto Vancouver and Montreal can make it with just around 20,000 fans a game Ottawa should be able to with a brand new stadium of only 24,000 and finally the biggest thing... Proper local ownership with deep pockets.
