Let me type slowly so it sinks in.
People bought tickets and showed up. Just because you see an East Club section as the predominate view from the TV cameras doesn't mean the people weren't there. Not sure how many times this has to be explained, but apparently at least once more.
Sorry, FBT, but I have to disagree with you. I sit in the East Club, and from where I was sitting there were thousands of empty seats on the West side. In fact, I would guess there were about 20,000 empty seats total. I'm sure most of it was from people having tickets but not showing up for a Thursday night game, because the announced ticket sale was over 60,000.
The crowd was loud and enthusiastic, but there were large swaths of empty seats.
To be fair, last week's game in Cleveland looked even worse. Cleveland's stadium looked half full on TV. They announced 69,000 tickets sold, but I swear only half of them showed up.
