Thanks for moving this thread.
I have to admit, whenever I read about the "attendance problem" on our board I suspect there are people who are repeating some of the potshots Siena posters take at us on their board. That might be why some people here get so "defensive" about it.
That said, there are some legitimate things being said, especially about the arena. One of the main problems I have with the way Sefcu is laid out is that the main entrance basically faces the old gym and not either of the way most fans actually enter. There's not much changing that now. Honestly, rather than piecemealing things, I'd rather see one common, shared concession area built between Sefcu and Ford Field but that may be just my fantasy.
No offense to the people who are unhappy with the walk from Dutch Lot to Sefcu but it seems pretty standard, if not better than most other places I've seen games. Others on this board have been to far more road games than I have but I don't think it's bad. CCSU, Quinnipiac, Vermont, Bing all have about the same distance and the bigger venues (Syracuse, TUC) are more of a schlep.
