Immediate Signs Of Trouble

Considering that the Scouts lasted just two seasons in Kansas City, I suppose it shouldn't be surprising that there were signs of trouble after only six home games. The below article appeared in the 11/19/74 Star, and examines the disappointing attendance that the Scouts experienced in home games two through six (averaging 7,114 in those five games).

I haven't been able to find attendance figures online for 1974-1976, so I'll be tracking the attendance game by game as I go through the microfilm. My prediction is that as the losses pile up, attendance will just get worse after an already shaky start.
