Ah, forgot about visiting fans for fairly close sports teams, though a portion of those live here, as well. Still, averaging 14,000 non-Illinois fans each game? That is not happening.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
