I'm not trying to make a political thread here so I'll shy away from why there were so many empty seat.
I came across this story with pictures showing what is maybe just over a half full stadium. You can easily see empty seats.
Then I got on my ESPN app I use for scores and highlights.
The app says that the stadium holds 80k people.
Then it shows 91,712 attended the game.....
Who the hell are they kidding?
Somebody is making a real effort to hide the actual attendance.

What JimNasium said is true. They do the same thing for college games. However, I do believe there is and will continue to be a decline in attendance for the NFL and other pro sports. Politics aside, it just costs too damn much. When we still lived in Ohio, we would take the kids (3) to a Bengals game once a year. maybe twice. Between tickets, parking, and consessions, we would easily spend $500. Then there is the aggravation of getting there and leaving plus dealing with the drunk obnoxious fans.
