What will it take for the Avs to sell out Pepsi Center again? I have season tickets, and it's discouraging to see so many empty seats. Patrick Roy is really trying to reach out to the fans, and there doesn't seem to be full buy-in yet from the public.
Nope, it's not there yet. Last Sunday's game against Winnipeg was a pretty big disappointment attendance-wise. When you had seemingly as many fans from Winnipeg in the stands making as much or more noise than for a home team that came in 9-1 is, well, kind of embarrassing.
Avs fans need to put up or shut up eventually. They've cried about not having a winner, and that's why they don't show up. Well, the team is winning again, and they have a legend as the head coach leading the way, and yet they can't make more noise than people from Winnipeg? And, the number of Red Wings fans again in the stands for their game earlier this month was pretty sorry to see too.
I do think there is a lag on these things, and the fans will come back. But time is running short for Avs fans and their excuses for not supporting the team.
