    I really wish I could go. If I wouldn't have left work early last night in order to catch the game, I would be seriously considering calling in *cough*sick*cough* but Wed. are usually a rough night anyways.....

    I like my shifts, due to no weekends, but times like these really make it rough.

    I shall go. It would be nice to be there with a decent crowd, but I know it won't happen.

    Alas, one of these days games will be moved back to the 7:30pm time slot to out of town folks a better chance of attending on time. However, if the earlier time slot means more families get to go, then I'm all for it.

    my thoughts exactly!

    people need to start going to games

    we're a winning team again and 28th in the league in attendance is ****ty and quite frankly its disgusting because this is known to be a basketball state and we play in the nicest arena

    there is no reason for it

    i will be going and keep on going as long as this is how we're playing

    i just want to question the 6000 of those who showed up opening night why they choose not to come out to more games and get the attendance high?

    they follow this team i assume and even in the paper, it says how we've done

    pretty soon everyone will wish they can come to pacers games to see paul george and the playoff contending pacers

    I'm hoping for around 14,000-15,000, expecting more like 10,000-11,000.
    probably wont be that bad

    the ice storm game there was between that much

    i want this team to average 16212 (random number to throw out there) per game

    we averaged around that in 2006 (last time we were in the playoffs) and sell outs-nearly in the home playoff games against new jersey. we were like 17th in the league in attendance

    even the following season we averaged 15500 but we were still 28th. the attendance was high for everyone that year

    then the wheels fell off the cart in 2008 and we were dead last in attendance (embarrassing year)

    anyway, we have the "Taco Cat"
    This is a close as there is to having an official Pacers board, they would be stupid not to utilize it. I am a fan of Taco cat.

    Always good to bring in some newbies. Every person who has never been to a game before, is a potential fan just waiting to be made.
    This is too true. My girlfriend always thought going to the games was fun, but she didn't care to follow the team or watch the games on TV. Took her to a preseason game and the home opener. A few months later, tonight is the ~15th game we've been to this year, she watches the games on TV whether I'm home or not, follows the players on Twitter, and has just become an all around fan of the franchise.

    In a word, it's awesome.

    Believe me, I would be a STH if I lived in Indy.

    I'd even be like Duke and drive an hour and half for every game.

    I agree, the attendance should be higher and it will get higher once we officially make a name for ourselves and return to the playoffs.

    It'll only go up from there.

    I've got pretty much the same situation. I've been with my girl for 8 months and before we got together, she didn't give a rat's a** about the Pacers. Now she watches the games while I'm there (already had season tix before we met), goes to as many games as I can get her too and also follows some of the players and Pacers related twitter accounts. We've got good women my friend.

    You should come to the game. We're going to have a good time watching our guys slaughter Stephen Jacksons team and steal their playoff spot back.

    I'd go tonight if I had money.

    I've been to two games this year, but my friends and I will most definitely be going to more. We really want to get some great courtside seats.

    If you are able to go, go! The Pacers definitely need our support and I'm jealous of all those who will be making it to the Fieldhouse tonight.

    well smosley your right that tonight was going to be 10000-11000

    i just got the exact attendance number and its 10268

    are people really that stupid and cheap to not make the place with 6000 more people?

    we get better and the attendance goes down?

    people here kiss the colts asses every game because there such fair weather fans

    I couldn't go tonight because I had a test at the start of the game. I've already gotten my tickets for Friday, though! I'll be up in Area 55 as usual! I'm excited.

    Pretty simple to me, temp's gonna be below zero tonight. Even when we were good, weather greatly affected attendance.

    Just think of it this way. Now that football is done, all those casual fans are snuggled up at home and they might think to check how the new coach is doing. They'll see that all of a sudden we're not playing like total and complete *** anymore, and that watching a game doesn't make them want to throw up. Thus the seeds are planted that they may actually be willing to spend money to go see a game in person.
