I'll blame all those on tickets that are owned by businesses that don't make it a priority to distribute them regularly.
I think it would be ideal to redistribute season tickets once the new arena opens, but that's a pipe dream...
Actually I think you are correct. I have a few friends at GM who could get plenty of free tickets thru company and just don't end up going. It always does seem like the upper bowl is packed and lower bowl upper half is but the first few row seats are empty (company seats probably). It always select seats that seem to be empty to be quiet honest.
Leaving the game now, after chanting "Lets go red wings" "f**k you Tampa" "f**k u bishop", booing the refs a hundred times (even after second when refs were the first to come on before the players), chanting "Abby Abby Abby" after scrum, booing Tampa players. I'd like to say the JLA is MOST definitely one of the toughest places to play. The fans completely went nuts!
