That and they dropped thei payroll by 30mil and everyone on the planet knew they weren't going to make the playoffs.
jeff, there is no such thing as a 190,000 seat arena/stadium.

The biggest stadium for pro sports in North America holds 83,000.

3000 less in a stadium that big is like a grain of sand from the beach compared to a 19,000 seat venue losing that many.
