Is it that difficult to see that they are second last in the league in attendence filled only to 75% capacity at home?
Raptors had about the same record but are in the middle.
Uh, yes Atlanta's attendence is quite terrible relatively. You know how much less revenue (not only seating but from concession stands, merchandise sales., etc.) that translates into compared to a team with an average (17,000ish)attendence? I don't know but it would be a lot.
You may be a fan which is great but overall the support by the community for the Hawks even in their good years was not what it should have been. I would assume NFL and college football and NASCAR is what dominates the area of Atlanta.
NASCAR dominates my house, i'm thinking about taking down my fence and putting in a tyco race track with 30 lanes.
