First round home court advantage goes to Charlotte.....they aren't expecting 75% capacity...pathetic isn't it?

Very sad.

Is it any wonder they want to move where fans might actually show up and root for them?

I'm not so sure New Orleans will support them. The Saints have loads of problems with season tix and the Jzz left The Big Easy because of the same thing. Seems risky.

And isn't their problem more to do with some sleazy owners who really tuned out and turned away the once supportive fans? Those characters will still be around, and it's probably a matter of time before the good people of New Orleans get tired of them and become apathetic of the team, too.

Charlotte had the best attendance in the league for years. Their problems stem from a number of sleazy actions by ownership which turned off the public and led the local government to refuse to build them a new coliseum on the terms demanded by Charlotte ownership. Their attendance issues this year are because the public has known all year that the owners were planning on moving the team. If the owners would sell the team, there is an new arena plan approved and attendance would not be a problem.
