The newspapers are reporting that the Warriora attendance is down from previous years. We may never know the real reason or it could be a combination of reasons. Here are some of the reasons that are pretty obvious to me.
1. Higher ticket prices.
2. Higher gas prices.
3. Double digit consecutive years of not making the playoffs and not even playing .500 ball.
4. Unimaginative or non-sexy *1 draft choices. Patrick O'Bryant, Ike Diogu, Andres Biedrins. Mike Dunleavy, Troy Murphy, etc.
5. Dull coaches, Nelly excepted.
Please feel free to add to the list.

I have to add things:
Fans that would rather watch the game in a quiet environment. (look at the arena.. its sometimes REALLY quiet)
If it is 4.50 for a bottle of water and the lack of the option of bringing coolers and snacks from the outside, that is a HUGE reason.
Gas? Carpool or take BART if you can. I took bart from the UC station to colisuem station when I was in high school.
I miss the chinese acrobats.
GtoE has to go! Great time out? who the hell thought of that idea and when can I wring his/her neck. The image I see of GToE is Adonal Foyle in a conga line singing "Its Great Warriors basketball, its a great time out!"

The only way to attract the people is to have some success!
migya make the ring fall on ya
the chinese lady on the unicycle who would toss the bowls on her head was THE BEST. She would always have the most surprised look everytime she did it. Classic stuff.
Tickets prices are A LOT higher. That's pretty much it. I could vent about the stupid hoop troop, loud music, thunder, etc. but the huge ticket price increase is what is keeping people away.
I just want to go to a game and watch basketball, is that too much to ask?
**** YEAH! I REMEMBER THE CHINESE LADY HOBBES!
THAT SURPRISED LOOK WAS CLASSIC!!!!!!!!!!!
yeah I totally agree. Now they have "upgrade my ride", and that weird thing where people guess what a warrior player's favorite ______ is and it's rigged so the fan is always right. and they've increased halftime two minutes. really annoying.
