Forgive me if this topic has been belabored. I just don't understand. I live an hour outside of Philly. The Phillies stink. They are run poorly, even with Pat Gillick at the helm. And yet, they draw huge crowds night in and night out. They are averaging over 38,000 each night.
The Indians are an exciting team with a great deal of promise. They can barely manage 25,000 fans at the games.
Are the old attendance records just a product of the Browns disappearance? Is this a once bitten twice shy situation from when they couldn't win 1 out of their last 6 games to make the playoffs? Is this just the market size?
Should I just figuratively keep my mouth shut and enjoy?
