The Bengals’ win on Sunday was a pretty big one, preventing the ignominy that would have accompanied the very realistic possibility of a winless season. But, judging from all the empty seats in Paul Brown Stadium, more Cincinnatians were at the big breast cancer expo than at the Bengals game.
How hard has it been for the Bengals to draw fans? I would say they can’t give the tickets away, but that would be glib. So how about this: they can’t sell the tickets for 99 cents on eBay.
