The thing that worries me greatly is that they are going to ignore the attendance plummeting by blaming it on the PATH situation. Reminds me of what legendary wrestling promoter Paul Boesch once said: " When promoters draw a bad crowd they come up with a bunch of reasons why they didn't draw when the real reason is that they presented a product that people didn't want to pay to see".
Let's Go Buffalo!!!

Looks like 26,000 found their way to RBA, despite all the supposed problems:

We are good enough to beat the best teams, and bad enough to lose to the worst teams.

Comparing RB regular season games to a USWNT WC sendoff game is a false equivalence.

Also, the WTC trains are working today for the holiday.

Says you. How did all these moms and their daughters find their way to a stadium in a small town?
How can NYC-area soccer fans not?

the WTC trains are working today for the holiday.


How much of the crowd used the PATH?

I'm sure you don't need me to spell it out, but it's much easier to waste a day on a once a year (or 4 years) occasion for your daughter's heroes that it is for a biweekly NYRB regular season MLS game.
