The Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC) is "in the red $795,000," for the 12 months that ended June 30. MMAC Exec VP Mary Ellen Powers said the reason for the shortfall was "misjudging" MMAC's commitment that guaranteed the Brewers 10,000 season tickets. The MMAC purchased a total of 5,647 season tickets through '95 and '96, for a total of $4.467M. The MMAC has yet to calculate the association's season ticket purchase for the '97 season (MILWAUKEE BUSINESS JOURNAL, 10/20 issue)....The HARTFORD COURANT ran a home attendance comparison between the NHL Hurricanes and the AHL Hartford Wolf Pack. Through five games, the Hurricanes have averaged 9,112 per game, playing to 43.8% of capacity. Through four games, the Wolf Pack have averaged 7,670 per game, playing to 52.3% of capacity (HARTFORD COURANT, 10/24)....Since naming former ASU QB Jake Plummer the team's starting QB on Tuesday, the NFL Cardinals sold 3,546 tickets to Sunday's game against the Oilers. The game will still be blacked out as a total of 38,522 tickets remained 72 hour prior to kickoff (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 10/24). ...The Bruins "drew only" 12,470 for their third home game of the season. In Boston, Kevin Paul Dupont: "The message: Even if the Bruins can put a respectable product on the ice -- and they have thus far -- the fans want some sizzle for the high price of tickets" (BOSTON GLOBE, 10/24).
