2,989

That's how many fans are needed at Sunday's game for the Defenders to reach 200,000 fans this season.

Considering it's the home finale, I think it can be done.

WELL, LET ME POP THIS FEEL GOOD BUBBLE!! THIS IS MY SECOND YEAR WORKING FOR THE DEFENDERS---VERY MUCH WITH THE FANS---GAME IN AND GAME OUT. ACCORDING TO THE BULLETIN THIS A.M.--THERE WAS A LITTLE GET TOGETHER BY THE ""FRONT OFFICE STAFF"" FOR THEIR FINE WORK. IN THE PAST TWO YEARS, US FOLKS IN THE TRENCHES---DEALING WITH THE BREAD & BUTTER FOR THIS TEAM---HAVE NOT RECVD. A HOT DOG / CHEESEBURGER / AN ATTA-BOY OR A PAT ON THE BACK. NEVER ONCE IN TWO YEARS DID ANYONE (( EXCEPT ANDY PAPPAS )) FROM THE ""FRONT OFFICE"" OR HIGHER COME AROUND AND ACKNOWLEGE THAT THE FOLKS THAT WERE DEALING WITH ""THEIR"" PUBLIC ((AND LIVELIHOOD"" WERE DOING A GOOD JOB AND WERE APPRECIATED. AT THE END OF THE GAME ON SUNDAY---AFTER A FULL SEASON OF GAMES--THAT'S IT---PUNCH OUT--GO HOME---NO GOOD-BYES---NO SEE YOU NEXT YEAR---NO THANKS-A-LOT---NO NOTHIN'. BRING BACK ANDY--AT LEAST HE APPRECIATED PEOPLE!!

Trust me, there was no doubt it was going to get done. It was already penciled in before the season started that the Defenders were going to break 200,000. Attendance numbers are a very shady business!!

As a person who has enjoyed the hospitality and the kindness of the game day staff for the past two seasons, thank you for your kindness,your smiles, your thoughtfulness and your hard work. I know you are not in it for the money, but the love of the game and the fans that attend. Many times the "Front Office Staff" forgets that in your first careers,many of you made many connections in the community and those connections and people skills you have and had are shifted to your "second career" as the face of the Defenders.Thank you all for making my and my families two seasons with the Defenders memorable. To the gang in the front office, thank you too, but please at least acknowledge the efforts of all those around you as part of your successes.
