But for a 2nd round playoff game?

Think about how much of a pain it is to get there...did you think about that?

- senstroll

I travel 50 minutes to an hour to high park to see ducklings. Pretty sure I could handle the travel to see a game in round 2 of the playoffs.

People clearly have no idea how long it takes to get around Toronto lol.

As a guy that did hold seasons tickets in Vancouver where I only had a 1/2 hour commute I can tell you that I did not make half the games during the regular season nor all of the games in the playoffs.

Once you hold seasons tickets, you tend to see that it's really a pain in the ass to go to games all the time.

Had I stayed out there, I was going to try for Seahawks tickets instead of Canucks tickets even though I'm a Dolphins fan because it's only an 8 game commitment.

The commute, side costs of going to the games and the impact on your regular life is much more substantial than you guys might believe......especially for a family man.

So, I assume you just threw the rest of the tickets away? I mean, might as well, right?

No matter how you want to spin it, you're talking about a Canadian city that can't fill their arena for playoff games. There really are no valid excuses. It's pathetic.

Honest question - when was the last time that happened in Canada? Did Edmonton sell out every single game in 2006?

I'd be willing to bet it's been decades since we've seen a Canadian team in the NHL playoffs, with as many empty seats. It's embarassing.

I repeat: there just aren't enough Sens fans to guarantee a sellout. Admit to this simple fact and and let the laughable excuses rest. It's such an easy thing to admit which makes this pretty funny.

Why don't the Jays sell out every game? Well there aren't enough Jays fans to sell out every game. Pretty simple. No excuses needed, that's just how it is.

They might be building new stadium in 20 years, so I'm holding out for that.

People used to use the "Skydome sucks, that's why nobody is going to games" excuse and then the Jays got good and the building filled up again. Interesting isn't it. I personally like the dome even if the seats are uncomfortable and it's an ugly concrete mess inside. It has character.

I didn't go this year. I'm pretty sure the wind/rain recently cleared them all off the trees too. Maybe next year.

Even then, the Skydome holds over 50k people, and there are 81 home games a year.

And I suspect they still sell out every playoff game.

I'm too lazy to look it up, but honest question - who had better playoff attendance this year, ottawa or Nashville? How about ottawa or Columbus?

I like the skydome, but why spend money on it when there might be another stadium in the future?

I believe I would be the same way. I would likely give away some tickets, and sell others.

No way I would miss round 2 of the playoffs though, or round 1 ... you know, if I ever had the chance

Ottawa is at the bottom of the pack, surprisingly so is Edmonton. This is especially surprising considering they've managed to sell out seats for away games broadcast on the jumbotron, as well as selling $85 tickets to access the concourse, but not see the ice, during home games.

So take those numbers with a grain of salt, I guess.

For a city of its size I'd say the Jays are about where you'd expect in terms of average attendance. That wasn't really the case before their recent playoff appearances. Toronto isn't a baseball city though, people don't really care about them unless they have a shot at the playoffs and that's ok.
