Usually when we go maybe 1 in 10 seats will be empty. Again, we usually go when they play crap teams later on during colder weather, and a good bit of the empties are standing up somewhere nearby.
At the beginning, of the season, San Diego was playing an undefeated Atlanta team... and the game was blacked out
. Again, it was a great match-up. That's why SD & JAX will likely be heading to LA... and PITT will have a team for all eternity.
