Tim Wharnsby of the Globe and Mail on the JLA attendance situation,
Large crowds, however, have not been a problem for the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Pistons. The latter, which is on the verge of advancing to their fourth consecutive NBA conference final, has announced sellout crowds of 22,076 for each of their four home games so far.
The defending American League champion Tigers have an average attendance of 31,644 through 17 games this season, good for 13th in the major leagues. On Thursday afternoon, a whopping 37,359 walked through the turnstiles at the 41,070-seat Comerica Park.
Again I state it is not a competion matter with the other Detroit teams. The Wings overpriced their playoff tickets and have made very weak attempts at attracting fans to the games.
No free open skates, no discount tickets for students, no atmosphere created at the Joe for the fans = fans have simply had enough and won’t go until the Wings decide to change their thinking towards the fans.
