Expos averaged under 15K once before they hit the death spiral in 1998.
The team was gone after Labatt Park failed and the team was sold to Loria, judging the team by its attendance after that time is pointless. 3,000 people went to the last Brooklyn Dodger game because going to see a team that's moving is a sucker move.
The Expos were a sensation when they started, they were a sensation in the late 70s/early 80s when they were one of the best teams in baseball and they were going to be huge in 1994. They averaged 30K a game from June on, and they would have been selling out the place in September had there been no strike. In a real ballpark instead of a track stadium they'd be huge today.
People acting like nobody cares should talk to the suits, there are some big players in Quebec and Canada working behind the scenes to lay down the foundations for the return of big league ball. Ask yourself why Bell didn't go in on the Jays when they teamed up with Rogers to buy the Leafs.
