Pretty empty arena last night in saskatoon. They should move the team to a real sports city like Regina.

Clearly trolling considering it was a sell out with over 15,000 in attendance.

Cause the Pats did so well with crowds before this year, damn you trolls make it tough to look at comments. The Rush got a great thing going on and if you have not been to a game then you are missing out.

Build a real rink like Saskatoon. 15,000+ at the Rush game on Saturday and the fans loved it. Highest attendance at any NLL game this season.
