Why are you attacking me and not the facts I just put up? I am looking for a RESPECTFUL discussion about the attendance, not your typical "who cares etc" response.
First, I'm skeptical as to your motives or purpose. So far, your thread reeks of flaming or trolling.
The attendance issue has been discussed ad nauseam
from every conceivable angle. I suggest that no reliable conclusions can be drawn regarding attendance under new ownership, overhauled roster and re-branding until a full season or two has passed.
But if you're truly interested, there is this lawyer, amateur historian and obsessive-compulsive in Oklahoma City named Doug who can help you create some really cool charts and graphs to compare attendance for New Orleans and the rest of the league. It's a little fricking weird, however.
