What's up with attendance in Cincinnati? 43,462 would be a great number here, but that looks quite low for the NFL.

I just noticed on the resource I use that matches played behind closed doors because of sanctions are counted as matches with zero attendance. Is this normal? If so, I think it's stupid - they shouldn't be counted at all, from an attendance recording point of view these sporting events don't exist; instead they are counted as normal matches where absolutely nobody showed up.

I don't know. I know some Cincinnati fans are in revolt over the teams owners. I searched the Cincinnati sports sources and I found the below discussion on the Bengals board.

Harrison calling out the fans

PS.. I grew up in Cincinnati ...

Thanks for the link. I'd love for my team to be complaining about only having 43,000 at the stadium. Toronto home games have been as follows:

Game 1: 29,852
Game 2: 18,211
Game 3: 20,064
Game 4: 19,656

Toronto is basically a Leafs and soccer town. Everything else struggles for attention. Out west it's a different story:

Canada's Top 4 Pro Football Markets
Saskatchewan Roughriders: 37,768
Edmonton Eskimos: 32,728
Winnipeg Blue Bombers: 32,183
Calgary Stampeders: 29,880

Calling out the fans is rarely a good thing, especially when you're talking about a meaningless exhibition game. Sure, we'd all love to share in the undying enthusiasm of fanbases like the Packers or University of Michigan ( ), but not every team can enjoy such timeless success, either. Thank us for sponsoring your blessed life and lifestyle then leave the commentary to others, please.

Hard to believe. But if you say so. I believe you. Where do the Blue Jays fall in that list?

Toronto Blue Jays average attendance 2013....32,318 a game after 63 home games. That ranks 13th in MLB out of 30 teams.

Toronto Blue Jay drew over 4 million fans a season during the '91, '92 & '93 seasons...they drew 3.8 million in 1990.. averaging 49,000 a game over a four year period.

I'm not the only Torontonian to say that this is a Leafs town (and soccer). In other sports, Torontonians tune in when they're championship contenders or if they're enjoying momentary hype. The Jays attendance in the early 90s is a prime example of that. Torontonians will support something en masse if it's 'hot'. Only the Leafs and soccer get support no matter what.

13th highest attendance in MLB? That might sound great until one realizes that there are close to 9 million people within an hours drive of the Skydome. Only New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago have more people and all 3 of those markets support 2 teams. The Jays have the Golden Horseshoe all to themselves.

It should be noted that baseball in these parts dates back to the very beginnings of the sport. Love of baseball is deeply entrenched in southwest Ontario, especially amongst old stock Canadians. One only need attend a game to notice the sea of white, middle class folk flooding into Toronto from the suburbs and points further out. For the most part, it's not 'new Canadians' going to these games.

That said, if the Jays become contenders attendance will once again spike past 4 million as new Torontonians climb aboard the band wagon. It would go to 6 million if the stadium could hold them.

Eh, I wouldn't put much stock in that number aside from its a good indicator of how many season tickets have been sold. I imagine very few people wasted their money on a single game ticket for a preseason game so that 43K is probably somewhat close to the season ticket base. With how well the team has performed (playoff games aside) recently and how well they're expected to do this year I assume the majority of games will sellout, in spite of how much people despise Mike Brown.

^ yup ^

I don't know if it's all teams, but a lot of teams require you to purchase preseason tickets too, so the preseason attendance numbers are a good indication of how many season ticket holders there are. Looks like Cincinnati might just be a bit overpriced, they have a good team now so that number should be higher if they were priced right.

Seattle v Portland is tonight. Game has sold out the entire clink. 67000 people+ expected. I will be one of the. Giggity

Edit: on top of the rivalry game atmosphere which has sold this game out before, this is also Clint Dempsey's first home game as a sounder.

OUTSTANDING demonstration of support by the Sounders fans last evening.

Quote:
By Sports Network — The Sports Network

Clint Dempsey garnered most of the headlines ahead of his home debut for Seattle Sounders FC on Sunday, but it was Eddie Johnson who made the biggest impact by scoring the lone goal in a 1-0 victory over the Portland Timbers.

With Dempsey's first two appearances for Seattle coming on the road, fans flocked to CenturyLink Field to witness the American international's first home match as a Sounder - the attendance figure of 67,385 was the second largest stand-alone crowd in MLS history.

I gotta say after watching this video I'm convinced that someday soccer will be the #1 or #2 sport in popularity in the US. It's going to happen...

Oooof. Hard pressed to topple any of the big three, and Seattle is very much the exception rather than the rule. I do think mid-20k avg with more places matching that type of support is achievable in my lifetime.
Something like that with near NHL levels of TV appeal would be great! No more suspicions about financial viability, higher grades of talent coming in...

Thankfully the US appetite for sport is large enough to support 5+ large sports leagues. Heck once the MLS catches up with the big 4 maybe a 6th league will start to break through, Major League Lacrosse anyone ?

I'd laugh with you but MLLcontinues to labor on. The gulf between that and MLS is probably proportionate to the gulf between MLS and the NHL, and odds are it won't grow as quickly because it doesn't have the international appeal and history upon which to build. But there's no reason it can't continue to prosper as a minor niche league. I know I've watched a number of ACC and NCAA tournament matches.

I'd be curious to see if we'll ever find a women's league (hoops or footie) ever standing on it's own two feet. A shame the women's soccer league can't sustain itself even as a minor league. Would like to give those so inclined the chance to play as a profession.
