    Phoenix payroll system issues with government employees means a large percentage of our working population in Ottawa does not have the extra dollars kicking around to spend on luxury purchases...I guess those selling out TD place are all farmers and brick layers...

    Idk, you gotta hope that's it's not arena related because please. A, it's in 8-10 years. And B that Dung was bound to happen some day if we were to keep the sens in Ottawa.

    Melnyk must be going mad about this. Expect another open letter to the fans or some other stupid stunt by the man himself if it doesn't pick up.

    The next stupid stunt? Relocation!!!!

    Buckle up.

    The reason it's easier to sell out TD Place is that you only have 9 home dates, the tickets are glass as expensive and the arena is downtown.

    And farmers are all in bed when the Sens play.

    There's probably about 20 significant factors that impact Sens attendance, and I think we've pretty much covered them all here at one time or another.

    Did we discuss how the owner is a crazed lunatic?

    Maybe only briefly.

    Apathy + terrible marketing from the sens + price increase per seat due to the addition of the fan deck, and you got the horrific attendance numbers.

    Did the senators even advertise the fact the redblacks were to be in attendance on Thursday? No. Obviously not the same, but they could take a few lessons from OSEG and marketing tips.

    There's a bunch more factors that play into it...we've discussed them all. All WE can do is buy tickets when possible!

    I can see the excuses about management and the team coming out earlier. 11K for a game at home versus phoenix? that's pretty brutal.

    Now the sens are 1/4 of the way through and have a very good record. But fans are still waiting for something....I don't get it. They're actually doing well, go out and support (not saying anybody here but in general to majority of fans).
