According to The Cincinnati Enquirer's Joe Reedy, a record low amount of cars passed through the gates of Georgetown College to watch the Bengals practice during training camp.
1330 cars parked at Georgetown during #bengals camp which is a record low by a big margin. Previous lowest was 2874 in 2001. Last year 7362
Unless those 1,330 cars were busses, it's likely that the amount of cars that parked at Geogetown is directly related to how many people attended the Bengals' open practices.
Maybe it's a result of the long offseason, which included the longest NFL work stoppage in the history of the league, that has kept fans away, but maybe it's the fact that the offseason between the 2010 season and the 2011 season has likely been one of the worst offseasons in the history of the franchise.
Will the all-time low attendance at training camp transfer over to the season? People aren't expecting many wins from the Bengals this year and the bad offseason may combine to keep butts out of the seats at Paul Brown Stadium this fall.
