    The population of Amherst would support the team if they produce results. In the mid 90's the old barn was packed to the rafters. If you win they will come.

    Try running a hockey team on $5.00 ticket prices every week............It would be the last year for the Rams if they did that.

      Jack, if $9.00 tickets draw 700 people, the net gate is $6,300, and if $5.00 tickets draw 1,800 people the net gate is $9,000, I would think the $5.00 ticket is better for the team. More gate revenue plus more fans in the seats ... WIN WIN and hopefully WIN!

    Ticket prices are $9.00 and amherst averages 6-7 hundred fans. Reduce ticket prices and 1800 fans show up.
