They liked it so they put some rings on it.

Nice to see the self-proclaimed best fans in baseball can't even be bothered to fill their stadium.

If they are going to biatch about other fans then they should have their stadium filled every night.

But then NYers didnt even show up to see Mantle hit his 500th HR on a beautiful day either, the fans just turn out when its convenient for them or they are winning. They are not good fans, they are front running fans, the cubs/cardinals probably have the best fans in baseball.

As much as I dislike the Yankees, it really looks the fan freaked out a bit and knocked over the food which had been sitting on the wall right in front of them.

Stupid NY'ers.

Cardinals, sure, and the Cubs have some good fans, but Wrigley for years has been filled with people who want to get hammered in a baseball-themed outdoor beer garden and just acted as enablers for the piss-poor management from ownership that for years was fine with maintaining the status quo of futility, because if the stadium is filling up even when they suck, why mess with that formula.

Yeah I should have put that in there as well, they do show up for every game though! I just wondered how that many people can get off work so early every day to make those games.

Once Pooholes leaves the Cardinals and they take over the
Pirates place in the division for a few years the "famous Cardinal fans" will be non-existent like the rest. Cubs fans are just retarded so they will show up to anything.

While most Yankee fans are front runners (miss the days of buying cheap seats and sneaking into box seats), nobody was filling stadiums in the 60s. Jim Kaat always says during broadcasts how he wishes he played today, and how they were lucky to play in front of 6,000 people back in the day.

I am tempted to post this assessment on my Cubs fan-heavy fantasy league's message board.

I know you and I have had this conversation before.

Mickey Mantle hit his 500th HR on Sunday, May 14, 1967.

The Yankees drew 18,872.

The Cardinals also played a home game that afternoon. They were on their way to 101 wins, and Bob Gibson was pitching.

Attendance: 11,853

On opening day that year, the Cubs drew less than 17,000 fans. Those "great fans" didn't start showing up until the Cubs started winning. They were 10th out of 10 NL teams in attendance in 1966, and 8th in 1967.

Cubs fans show up win or lose now because Wrigley Field is an outdoor tavern and a great place to see drunk girls in bikinis.

ok look.. I'll explain it for those that don't live in NYC...
Does Yankee stadium have a ton of empty seats, particularly on less-than-nice weather days? Yes, but most-to-all of those seats are sold (which is really the bottom line). Thing is, the ones that can afford those seats are usually the same ones that wouldn't dare have their $200 coif mussed by a harsh breeze or get a drop of rain on their Armani. Its a damned shame that the most visible seats on TV, the ones directly behind the plate, are also the most expensive (up to $1600, no joke) and usually the emptiest.

Best way to get a gauge of what the 'real fan' attendance is to look at the bleachers.

So the Leafs have the best fans in Hockey, too.

Well, maybe. Wont find a lot of people who agree with that outside of the GTA.

You may as well be speaking to those empty seats, man - haters don't listen. The empty seats are one of many dead horses they continue to beat, no matter how many times people explain it to them.

Except it's Yankee fans who insist the Rays should be contracted because of attendance. The Rays had more butts in seats last night than any other AL East team.

I can't speak for other Yankee fans, but that's not my opinion. I don't think any team should be contracted. However, I think teams should find good ways to bolster attendance (Yankees included), whether that means reducing ticket prices, putting the stadium in a better location or demanding the management field a competitive team.

The paid attendance last night at Yankee Stadium was more than 3x the paid attendance at the Trop. Granted, a whole lot of people didn't show up, but if you're going to bring contraction into it, paid attendance is what really matters and it's all that ownership really cares about.

Yeah, it's Yankees fans calling for the contraction of the Rays.

How many of those empty seats at the Trop are paid for though? THAT's what matters (if you're talking about club viability). The Rays also can't use the weather excuse. I do, however, understand that crossing a bridge is the most difficult feat known to man.

Yeah, and what was the respective populations of the two cities at that time? Just google old clips of that game and his 500th, the ball rattles around in the stands until someone walks over and picks it up. This for the man who is supposed to be one of the most beloved yankee players of all time but they couldnt show up for his historic HR? Dont give me that shiat, yankee fans are full of shiat and only show up when they feel like it, the majority are not fans of the game at all.

Attendance for their 500th HR (each of these guys did it at home):

Frank Robinson (1971) - 13,292
Harmon Killebrew (1971) - 15,881
Ernie Banks (1970) - 5,264
Mickey Mantle (1967) - 18,872

By the way, I actually did look up the 1970 population for both Chicago and New York.

CHI - 3.36M
NY - 7.89M

So, NYC's population was about 2.35 times larger than Chicago's, and the Yankees drew 3.5 times as many fans for those 500th HRs. So much for those awesome Cubs fans.
 
2011-04-06 04:26:49 PM  
All this attendance talk makes me nostalgic for the 5 years (88-92) when the A's actually drew well at the gate. Sigh. Man, we need a new stadium.

Like most people have front runner rob on ignore, we never see his comments anymore because of how much of a pussy he has become. Yankee fans are the one biatching about other teams and their piss poor attendance, but then the rest of the country doesnt have millions living within 30 mins of the stadium.

Rex_Banner:MoeSzyslak: But by all means, continue to apply 2011 standards to the 1960's and 1970's as if nothing has changed

And again, yankee fans are always the ones biatching about others piss poor attendance, they never mention that they have more people than any other city living so close. 18K in that stadium is nothing for a historic occurrence of one of their most loved players.
 
2011-04-06 04:30:59 PM  
yankees fans would probably go to games more often if they didnt' all live in f*cking florida.
