It is understandable for a sub-.500 team to suffer a dropoff in home attendance.
It is understandable for fans and their friends to watch a pay-per-view telecast in the comfort of their homes or garages.
What should be a concern is when fans prefer to watch a UH game at a movie theater instead of Aloha Stadium. Sure, theaters offer relatively inexpensive admission ($12), more parking and shorter bathroom lines. Theaters offer stadium-styled seat, too.
But there’s another place that offers stadium-styled seats: Aloha Stadium.
Aloha Stadium should be concerned that there are fans who want to watch a game in a stadium-like atmosphere but not at the stadium. Winning, of course, will improve attendance at Aloha Stadium. But will that lure fans who prefer, for now, to watch games in a darkened theater?
