    So the final average attendance is 4,005 per game. I'm calling BS on this. Syracuse had 2,800 tonight to end the season. They needed somewhere in the high 3,000's for the league to average over 4,000.

    I wonder how much phony attendance reporting has been given for this league. I know that some of the teams do sell out at times, but it seems like they badly wanted to reach 4,000 average at any cost.

    Why do I care about this? ...I dunno.

    Where the hell do you come up with your "facts"? Syracuse did not need to get "in the high 3,000s". Syracuse and Norfolk needed to combine for 4,788 today in order for the league to hit 336,000 for an average of 4,000 per game. Norfolk reported 2,395 and Syracuse 2,871, for a combined total of 5,266.

    My apologies. I must have missed something. I do know that the reports for Wichita's games have not always been consistent with what the MISL website reports. They inflated the numbers. I live in Wichita - that's how I know.

    Stay cool, dude, and make sure you finish your egg salad sandwich.

    Personally I wish that you would choke on it and that Steve Paxos and Steve Ryan had choked on it. Maybe we'd have a decent league by now.

    I think whoever does Wichita's stats has been making up a number as a placeholder until the real number is tallied and adjusted later.

    I would agree with this statement.

    I personally attended 4 Wings games. The Wings and Norfolk's stats staff struggled with accuracy all season long. Who scored, who was in goal.
