"BAD TASTE" OF LOCKOUT LINGERING IN DETROIT?
Published January 31, 1995
The Red Wings fans and season ticket holders are "exhibiting the bad taste the lockout has left in their mouths," according to Cynthia Lambert of the DETROIT FREE-PRESS. Lambert looks at the Red Wings' attendance figures, adding that between 1,500 and 2,000 seats were empty at a recent home game, many in the lower bowl: "That to me shows more damage than fans not wanting to shell out money just yet. We're talking about people who have already paid for their tickets, yet opted not to go." Citing the Leafs' Fan Appreciation Giveaway, Lambert writes that other NHL teams "should take note" (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 1/29).
