Pollard also mentioned this morning that of the 7,000 new season ticket holders this year, 2,500 of them have joined the National Cyclone Club. The number of NCC members has increase from 5,000-something to 8,000-something (I don't remember the exact numbers he said).

Also overall donations were up from something like $4.5 million to $5.6 million this year.

The fan base really deserves a lot of credit. JP has laid out the plan calling fans to pony up and we have. Pollard acknowledged that and said its now time for the "product" to step up.
