This is happening in San Diego, but where have you heard this before? “The shortfall [of selling out] exists despite an aggressive effort to market the game, from a “White Hot Sunday” gimmick that entails the players wearing all white uniforms and fans being encouraged to wear white shirts to the presence of No. 55 helmet decals in honor of the late Junior Seau.” It’s a cultural change, people.

    I grew up in San Diego and used to go to games at the Murph (Jack Murphy Stadium now Qualcom or whatever it is now) and this has nothing to do with the economy in SD, it’s booming, my sister still ives there and she regularly goes to games (both Padres and Chargers), keep in mind that stadium is about 45 years old, and the county has basically done nothing to upgrade it, when the Padres left the county promised the Chargers that they would either upgrade or replace The Murph, neither has happened. The interior of the stadium makes the old stadium in Philly look down right modern. Another problem is the fans, not the homers, the travelers (which SD draws a lot of, who wouldn’t want to go to SD in Nov when you live in Denver), especially Raider fans, my sister sells her tix when the Raiders come to town as it’s not worth the hassel of dealing with their fans. Either way, the county and the team is going to have to sort this out or I have no doubt SD will be the new team in LA.

    Joe – I must say that 2007 was a VERY strong year for the Hooters Calendar girls…

    Simply put, it’s a cultural change. More and more people choose the at-home experience of NFL games than the in-stadium experience. Doesn’t mean they are any less of a fan.

    As a doctor told Joe just this week, “For the price of taking my boys to one Bucs game, I can get the NFL Sunday Ticket and watch every game, and not have to worry about parking and somebody standing in front of me the whole damn game.”

    The evidence of the cultural change is out there for anyone to see (NFL attendance has dropped the last four years yet TV ratings are through the roof).

    Once upon a time, the three top sports were horse racing, boxing and baseball. The NFL was behind college football. Society changes. Fans choosing to stay home is just a 21st century example of that.

    Oh, BTW, it does appear 2007 was a good year for Hooters. 🙂
