Very cool!! Interesting to note Chicago averaging over 7000. I wonder if the Hawks were doing well if they would still draw that many. Without looking at the Hawks attendance I wonder if the AHL team is in danger of passing the NHL team lol.

This is probably my favorite stat, i think we will keep doing well at this this year, winning like this has a tendancy to bring the casual fan out.

On another note, Rockford Stinks! Oh i'm so sorry, they can't even fit our average crowd into their building!

That is something to be proud of.

You know, it irks me alittle bit that other UHL cites thinks this city doesn't have the greatest fans just because were not as loud. WHo cares. The closest UHL city to us is Rockford and they're in 41 place. Beat that with a stick

It also might just be the browser you are using. I trust Joe that his stuff is solid.

Granted, some of the UHL teams' numbers aren't very good, but did anyone else notice how many teams in that "premier AA league" (AKA the ECHL) were ranked 62nd or worse? I counted 10. That's about a third of that league's teams.

You know, I've taken a better look at these numbers and what's surprising is that Muskegon, with the best record in the league and probably the best team, has dropped in attendance, and Quad City, the worst team in the league, has gained attendance.

probably one of the same guys who complains about us not hitting and fighting the other teams gave komet warrior a virus. i bet none of you could skate 2 minutes in warm-ups and you want to criticize our efforts? the sports writers in this town don't deserve writing about this team either. they love the players when they are here and then blast them when they are gone.

Not to let facts get in the way of a good post but please show us where the beat writers in Fort Wayne have EVER blasted a player? 99.9% of the critical commentary is directed at the TEAM and not at individuals since this is a team game. When individual commentary is made it is done based on facts and not a personal agenda.
Fort Wayne is lucky enough to have journalists and not tabloid writers. All blasting individual players will do is cause distrust and disrespect which would make writing stories more difficult.
Off the soapbox until someone can show me where Blake or Justin have blasted a player.
