Any predictions on whether the sun will continue to rise in the East?

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

I predict you'll tell me there was 5000 people at the 2019 home opener when it was really around 12000.

More likely, I will accurately report 8,000, while you will somehow see 12,000 and the FO will claim 19,000.

Looking at the seating map and doing some math, the lower bowl holds ~12k. The lower bowl alone is always at least 2/3 full which alone makes attendance at least 8k. You are incorrect!

The lower tier is generally half-full, which would be 6K by your estimation, while the upper tier is at most 15%, which would be less than 2k, for a total of 8K.

Madrid fans are really spoiled, watch them cry doomsday when they don't win a CL title this year.

Someone posted this on the MLS Reddit page. There were 3 MLS teams with double digit declines in attendance: Columbus, Chicago, Metro:

When you have the best home record in the league and your attendance figures are going the wrong way, you have an issue.

The reported averages for both 17 and 18 seem wildly optimistic. Comparing percentage increases/decreases in made-up numbers only gives you so much meaningful info.

I agree with the overall point, but just using the eye test, I thought our actual attendance (butts in seats, not tickets distributed) was down significantly this year. Each year the attendance seems to start slow, then we see a decent uptick in many of the summer games. That uptick never seemed to come this year, minus a small handful of games. Again, this is not based on any data, just the eye test and my memory.

Yeah, I would agree with that based on what I've seen this season. Just saying that the data isn't necessarily meaningful: could be worse, could be better than the 12% decrease in the table, and the raw average numbers are definitely inflated.

The past numbers are inflated.
The current numbers are inflated.
Comparisons between these numbers are meaningless.
