    Warren will have the best showing. Warren will have their entire community there - biggest thing to happen since the American Eagle opened in 1823.

    Most times when we are the visitors, we have more people than the home team...

    They do show up! LWE has a terrific community! You do understand that I made the projection earlier in the afternoon...I was also being folksy. Additionally, I don’t believe the Eagle opened in the 1820’s. Feel better? Enjoy your win.

    St Rita was smaller. Warren? I was hoping for much more from the Warren side to be honest

    Totally agree
    Home or Away, they show up. Much to be proud of to be sure.

    Funny you say Warren, when we played them in ‘17 playoffs we felt they had a light showing given the game.

    I don’t know how many of them showed up, but props to the Murphysboro fans who showed up. They had the longest drive of anyone(5 hours)

    At Marist, the visitor stands were packed. The only reason I did not go to Dekalb was I wanted to see all the games Saturday...but East fans travel.

    Yes and this is nothing new. East has been packing the stands as far back as 2003 that I can remember. I think a few packed games were with the first PC game in 2005 and the MC game in 2006. Standing room only on both sides of the field and all around the end zone.

    East Side showed up!

    Only Nashville and Murphysboro came further and 90 percent of those towns showed up too!!!

    The Northern teams should feel shame for their showings.

    With just the parents of the varsity players, they'd have about 1500 fans...

    Regarding LWE fans: Even at regular season AWAY games, the seat-savers come at the beginning of the 2nd level game to hold the choice spots. Also, at this year's home quarterfinal game, their school website publicized something to the effect of no seat-saving and items will be removed from the bleachers. Fat chance that would happen and it did not.

    Johndoe thanks for the shout out for us crazy LWE followers. The community supports the Griffins but like all HS programs today it is not like the golden years of the early 2000’s when there were no seats to be had in Frankfort. They currently save “prime” seats but you can still find a spot for your fanny in the home bleachers. I was disappointed with Warrens turnout coming from a school of 4000...well above the LW 2800...not quite the 48,000 but close. Once the split with Cook school district #43/ #161 is complete East will be closed and LWC will be the bad boy in town.

    I guess you didn’t sense I was intentionally being fatuous...weird, because I was laying it on pretty thick.

    Got it Bowie. I also did not want folks skipping LWE games because it is “sold” out as a certain IG88 use to fabricate for the Homewood-Flossmoor games. ( which were not sold out ) Also, noting the flux in the district may be changing yet again the landscape of Dist. 210. Crowds are encouraged at all HS functions.
