AN EMPTY FEELING: Last night's Magic-Bobcats game drew an announced crowd of 13,415 at Time Warner Cable Arena, and in Charlotte, Rick Bonnell writes, "If I were the Bobcats, I wouldn't just be worried about the number of empty seats at home games, but where those seats go empty. Let's face it: You could sell out the upper bowl every game and the revenue amassed couldn't pay the bills. Right now the lower bowl from baseline-to-baseline, the 'oceanfront property,' can look pretty deserted, particularly on a weeknight" (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 11/11).
