I would say 10,000-12,000 thousand.  We do know that the former Cleveland Classic never did as well as the Chicago Classic.

I stand corrected. But that does lead to the question of what happened in later years.

In 2013 that number had dropped by 40,680 when y'all played WSSU.  Classics in the north have been in decline for some time now. :shrug: Not expecting a big crowd.

If the game was played in Dayton or Cincinnati it would have a larger crowd. Canton Ohio is to far for me to drive.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
