If you haven’t read it yet, please checkout my post “Mets Business: Why in the world is no one showing up to games?”
A couple of MetsOnline.com readers had some great points to add to my article. Remember, if you comment on our posts with good points, we will repost them for the world to see!
Here are the comments…
The best line in this article is “Are there just not enough of us?” I love this line because it really explains not only many of the points in this article, but also why David Wright wasn’t chosen for the the National League’s starting third baseman. Although this shouldn’t be the case, I would say that most people vote for the players on their team, instead of the ones who actually deserve it. And in a city, even a huge city, that has two teams with one clearly favored than the other, its harder for that second, less-popular team to be represented when All-Star season comes around.
Two things more things. 1) The Mets’ downfalls of ’07 and ’08 surely lost not only overall Mets spirit but also Mets fans, and 2) Good restaurants in the stadium, yes, are a bonus, but it’s not the main motive for people to go to a game. I’m sure everyone who lives in NYC has both a Shake Shack and a Two Boots closer to them than the ones in Citi Field. Having said that, the Mets are a substantially better team than in previous years and I don’t think there is one right answer for the question posed in the article.
I think the thing that happened is people are a little pissed off still with the recent history of the Mets, Reyes leaving, financial scandals that impacted the Mets ability to make new acquisitions and so on. It is a little like being mad at your spouse, you still love them but you want to send a message.
it’s very simple….THE METS NEED STAR POWER!…
