And lots of rowdy fans. It only seated about 4500 I beleive and would sell out. It is a relatively small place and fans in Seattle back then were known for their rowdyness, not like today's variety. It was a great environemnt to watch games but I only got to experience that for a couple of seasons before the key became their full-time home. I have heard that it used to have chainlink instead of glass. I always questioned if that were true but I have heard countless people say that. While the T-Birds don't have many banners hanging from the rafters they have a rich history in the WHL from trading a player for a bus to Sangster's Gangsters and flying fish.
