  1. Maybe holding the game at the Windsor Casino will help the attendance, people are most likely to go downtown for an event than at the other end of town. We will need to see what attendance is like at the casino and compare it to the WFCU Centre. I am sure that ticket sales will be up by 100%, only confirming that our mayor Eddie and the city council made a big mistake not building the arena downtown.
