    Official attendance?

    Given they don't use scanners at the gate..I suppose it's hard to get a true count of attendance.....but that seemed like the biggest crowd I have seen at j trice. The south end zone looked bowled in. Anybody got insight to the attendance from sats game?

    Re: Official attendance?

    Good question. You would think we would have discussed this already, but I don't remember doing it.

    Anyone have this answer?

    Re: Official attendance?

    I agree that it looked full. I thought I read somewhere that it was like 52,000 but I could be wrong. I expected it to be higher than that.

    I figured it had to start with a 5.

    It was packed everywhere. Really impressive crowd in numbers and noise.

    I wonder how they count. The guy I gave my ticket too didn't seem to be counting.

    The renovations took away about 3000 seats. Where the new suites went.

    Not Rocket Science. They count how many tickets were sold.

    No offense (as this seems to be a reoccuring question), but the only number that really matters (ie....$$$$$$) is tickets sold...not butts in the seats. There is no motivating factor to count actual fans in the stands (other than curiousity), so why do people assume the attendance figure is anything OTHER than tickets sold?

    They do count how many are actually there but the announced attendance is always paid not actual.
