How is this Even Possible??? Nashville Predators Make List of NHL’s Least Engaged Fans

According to Forbes, the Nashville Predators have made the top 10 list for least engaged fans. How is that possible?? We at LRW Law Firm are avid Preds fans. Our attorney, Jonathan Williams doesn’t miss a game.

As attorneys and fans, we feel it is only natural to defend this ranking and advocate the truth: the Preds are the best and so are their Fans, and here is why.

#1. Fans with a Reputation
With the city’s reputation as a party town it only makes sense that this boisterous attitude is brought into Bridgestone arena. Nashville fans gained the reputation last year as “rambunctious, to the point where there appears to be an earthquake taking place whenever Nashville scores a goal.” Not only are the Predators fast and furious; they are fighters. Their gritty determination has fueled their winning streak running up to the 2016 playoffs.

With the addition of #1 center Ryan Johansen and a high-scoring defensive unit, fans are primed for a high-scoring post-season performance by the Predators. If we have a reputation for causing an earthquake when there is a goal, visiting teams better brace themselves.

#2. Stats Don’t Lie
According to ESPN, Nashville is creeping up in Attendance across the league from 20th overall in the 2014-2015 season to 15th overall in the 2015-2016 season and home games this year have played to a crowd that is more than 99% of Bridgestone’s capacity.

#3. Hockey + Nashvegas = Best All Star Game Ever.
We challenge future hosts to top what will come to be known as the Greatest All Star Game in History. Nashville didn’t stop at just hosting the regular hockey festivities associated with the All Star Game but it went on to make a spectacle out of the All Star Celebration with free concerts put on by: Big&Rich, Lee Brice, Aaron Lewis, John Hiatt, Chris Young, Tara Thompson, Dierks Bently, Eli Young Band and Kelsea Ballerini. And who can’t forget how John Scott stole the spotlight as the NHL All Star Game MVP. After the 2016 All Star Game, nobody can argue that Music City made for a memorable All Star experience.

#4. Gnash. No words are needed.

Gnash 3

Well, maybe a couple words…..just to explain why Jonathan’s wife Megan has been sporting a “Mrs. Gnash” jersey. The love of the Preds is strong in the Williams household. Really though, who doesn’t love Gnash?
