NK,the soccer team is ran by the same group they don't draw either I think 400 has been their magic number so far in attendance.

Also there is that looming lawsuit against the team and city by that academy baseball program,the RR are already a bust you've seen the attendance the level of red ink flowing before they go into year two of the free rent given away by the city can't be recovered.

They will try to return with promises of better attendance next season but as we all know it will be further trip into debt and heading into year three they will ask for another year of free rent, because they won't be able to pay any sending the relationship into sour patch island and regret from city brass who backed this setup.

Other groups have so far been reluctant to rent the stadium, because of the trade secret known by the RR they don't pay anything but word has it want to charge a little over $3k to other groups, (this is illegal) under federal law.

There was a release about a division 3 college championship game next year on there site. But a closer look at it showed that the airhogs used the same group and appear to simply pass the program over to them, so we can probably be very sure no money from the college conference has exchanged hands and it wasn't very successful with the airhogs.

The airhogs post an attendance of 1,980 something almost 2,000 for game where both teams are well out of contention.

Texas AirHogs 31 47 0.397 16 1W 5-5 (47) losses (16) games behind first place.

The hogs have 31 wins and haven't seen a crowd of that magnitude since probably year two of its existent, so why continue to post fake attendance numbers? while they have been able to pay the bill for use of the stadium the red ink is large they want to maintain control of the stadium but have continued to fail in regards to large numbers renting the complex.

Secondly if they were to get a crowd of 2,000 you would think they would want to show that off during the broadcast, but you won't see one fan shot of the stadium in any replay video of game

Recall that they posted an attendance of 650 this season do anyone think they go from that to almost 2,000

Cleburne Railroader Baseball
20 hrs Cleburne

We are very excited to have Pudge Rodriguez stopping by the Depot for a first pitch ceremony Monday Night...Due to a very busy Hall of Fame appearance schedule, Pudge will not be available for autographs or pictures during his visit.

However, we hope you will come out to the Depot early and share in our pride that Pudge is excited about Railroader Baseball and the Cleburne Community...take this incredible opportunity to get a picture of a Ranger great and HOF Member, Pudge Rodriguez, on the field in your hometown

Now just how is this a Pudge night when he (if) shows will only throw a first pitch and leave, come buy your tickets for Pudge night they announce.
This is yet again another moment of fraud oh so fake news

False attendance numbers? It's not just for the minor leagues anymore:

Texas AirHogs 589 attendance for 8-14-17 this is lower than the 650 posted earlier this season.

Cleburne has attempted to suggest 2,850 for the Pudge first pitch game 8-14-17 but in looking at the video they would be hard pressed to reach that number, here's the thing if you're going to post fake numbers at least be able to fill all the seat's behind home plate and down first base line.

Then and only then can their be any suggestion that an argument can be had.

As for those fake numbers within the NFL the new stadiums being built reflect those dropping numbers
new stadiums are being built with fewer seats.


Update- for 8-16-17
Cleburne Railroaders 1,689

They were lucky if that crowd was even 600 as I have said many times before with video of the game and replay available fake attendance numbers only make you look bad and a complete liar.


The Depot at Cleburne Station offers over 1,750 fixed seats including both standard and ADA seating. Standard seats are 22" wide, have large cup holders attached and have slotted backs to provide increased air circulation. All seats offer a spectacular view of the field, easy access to stadium amenities and are offered at a variety of pricing options.

Now if they were getting the posted attendance numbers wouldn't the seats behind home plate be filled at the very least.

Wichita just clinched the division, 13 games ahead of Cleburne with 12 to play. AirHogs are 17 back. Salina is 37 back. Was watching Wichita St. Paul game. Impressive production values for a minor league video webcast (that is free to view).
Good crowd in St. Paul (reported at 8,000). Probably helps that the Twins were on the road.

Garey Wylie Friday, Saturday & Sunday is our last home games for the season. Get your tickets now. We are so close to going over 100,000 in attendance for the season.

They are so close to 100,000 using fake numbers let's say it was 4,000 at last nights game, well that might be to many so how about 1780 now that sounds about right (right)

Sorry breaking news I was wrong the announced attendance for last night 2,583.

But wait if that were true why are there empty seats in a 1750 fixed seat stadium and the grassy knoll where everyone will want to sit is very empty, oh that's right many many season tickets buyers forgot there was a game.

You can't make this stuff up, they are really I'm speechless!


NEWS: We've activated pitching coach Ed 'Smoke' Pruitt, and the lefty will likely become the oldest player in American Association history.
You've got your chance to see him throw this weekend. Witness history. #ChooChoo
Railroaders sign pitching coach Ed Pruitt, believed to be oldest player in league history
The 55-year-old has served as Cleburne's pitching coach in the inaugural season, and he will pitch

Rachel Beasley Broyles Who will tend his walker?lol. Don Broyles
Kevin Fillingim
Kevin Fillingim Hurting for fans already?

update

Announced attendance 2,793 now really stop it. The video shows plenty of empty seats and almost no one in the grassy area, so where are all these no show ticket buyers when they posted plenty of good seats still available before the game. Remember what the seating cap is 1750 if there were 2,793 people that would be standing room only just about everywhere a camera could show, but the video from last night 8-26-17 shows no such attendance SAD really SAD using the word of you know who!


One final up date: This one says it all and they still could not fill up the stadium!

Amanda-(Edited) Each one of you is so down to earth and welcoming. Your heart for giving back to the community is what I love most of all always willing to provide free seats to whole communities and individual citizens.

NKSports, here's a question for you where do the Airhogs go from here?

Listed attendance for 8-29-17 (312) Cleburne has asked its few real number of fans to attend the final series vs the Airhogs though its an away game, saying they will broadcast from the stands

Even though normally the hogs have broadcast team

Fuzzy math from Cleburne

On August 24th they announce the following (Fenyes) Team management

Friday, Saturday & Sunday is our last home games for the season. Get your tickets now. We are so close to going over 100,000 in attendance for the season.
Railroader fans, Let's Do This!
See ya at the game! ⚾️⚾️⚾️����������

John Fenyes Military night Saturday. We will have our 100,000 fan come through our gates this weekend. It might be YOU. The 100,000 fan will win 100 tickets for next season worth $1000.00 plus $100.00 gift certificate to be used next season.

Okay they played 60 home dates since the Stockade played mostly road exhibition games, since they were not official members based upon bylaws.

Back to the fuzzy math on August 16 which would have been the 57th home game they should have surpassed the 100 thousand fan if the numbers were true, on this day the numbers would have been 101,460. But wait the team didn't know they had reached this milestone,so why wouldn't they know this you might ask? Well if they really were averaging 1780 fans per home game as advertised on the league stat page,in a 1750 seat stadium why not celebrate the record of most sellout's for a minor league team in history at this same point of 57 straight sellout games,

You already know why they didn't celebrate the sellout's and had lied so much about the attendance numbers that even they didn't know what the true numbers were.

Fenyes statement about winning tickets worth $1,000 (really) not when they have given away free tickets all season, any economist would tell you those tickets are worthless now.
