Tribune's Numbers Are Wrong
Derek Jensen's story on the efforts to resolve the RSL stadium debate is a pretty good one. But... Derek Jensen said: "The team has been averaging 12,000-15,000 fans in its inaugural season." Wrong. According to information easily available on the team site, here are the tallies for home league games: 25,287- 16,254- 18,621- 12,581- 17,861- 40,589- 15,112 Derek claims the team brings in between 12 and 15 thousand but RSL has brought in less than 15,000 only once. By the way, these numbers put RSL third in the league for attendance.
