Throwing stones at empty houses
For those trying to make the case hockey in Phoenix can work, I offer the following photographic evidence, courtesy of Heidi Johannson of Edmonton, Alta.
That was the attendance at the Phoenix Coyotes exhibition game played on Sept. 21, in Glendale.
In effort to combat the lack of enthusiasm for the club, the Coyotes have advertised lower bowl seats for $25 US and upper bowl seats for $15 US.
Makes the following seem pretty expensive in comparision:
Brandon Wheat Kings (WHL);
Manitoba Moose (AHL);
Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL);;
University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux (NCAA);
University of Michigan Wolverines (NCAA);
University of Regina Cougars men's hockey (CIS);
University of Regina Cougars basketball tickets (CIS);
Victoria Salmon Kings (ECHL);
Bossier-Shreveport Mudbogs (CHL).
