why do some holier than thou people make it a constant point to repetitively call out all other steelerfans?

the stadium isnt the largest. but on the flipside, the steelers dont constantly jack up the prices on their fans either.

i see cleveland is 15th. has anyone ever seen a pgh stadium half empty like in cleveland the night they finally won their second game of the season vs the steelers?

*flush*

Bahahaha, that is the most worthless pile of crap numbers I have ever seen:
Seating capacity for Heinz Field = 65,050; Avg Attendance = 63,485; Equals 98% filled every game.
Paul Brown Stadium (Bungles Home) Capacity = 65,515; Avg Attendance = 64,004; Equals 98% filled every game (although we know during Steelers games there was probably an equal number of each teams fans which never happens in the Burgh)
Cleveland capacity = 73200; 68888 Avg Attendance = 94% attendance . . .Hmmm, they are above the Steelers though at #15, oh yeah, they ahve more seating available!
Now the kicker:
Dallas' new megadome capacity = 80,000; Avg Attendance = 89,756?? So they seat almost 10k more people than there are seats? Hmmm, number don't seem to add up there . . .

Even if they were 100% capacity (which is pretty impossible) they would still be top of the chart just due to the fact they can seat 20k more people per game. Those numbers are screwy without the fact that they obviously bias larger stadiums. Should be a percentage attended instead of total seating capacity.

Exactly. These attendance rankings are pretty much BS because they don't take into account the fact that some stadiums seat more than others. You have to look at the percentages.

For example...the Steelers have a higher attendance percentage than the #2 Redskins.

When was the last time a player or local business had to buy up tickets (and then give them away) in order to sell out a Steelers game? Every week, Krogers or other local business bailed out the Bengals.


The locals here in Cinci and northern Ky. have no probelm with buying tickets or season tickets to UC, UK, Xavier or Ohio State games.

Guys, if you click on the % header, the list will be sorted differently, but we're still #17 in terms of % of attendance vs. capacity.

Dallas Stadium has over 100,000 seats to 64,450 for the Steelers, so how could they have possibly had a better ranking? Stupid number.

Looks like Heinz Field was filled at 97% for our 8 home games compared to >100% for Dallas, Indy and a few others;.
I don't understand how there could be more spectators than seats in any stadium though.
Anyway, Heinz Field wasn't full when the Packers visited us and there was much more than 3% empty seats, even taking into account the people standing in the rotundas.

Most watched Super Bowl ever. Take over every stadium we play in. Have to stop our fans from buying tickets to games.

Yeah, I'll take those stats.
