Has anyone ever sat there and actually counted the gate/tickets sold? Take that and add in all the wrestlers, coaches, and officials. If that number is more than the "capacity" of the facility, then that fact needs to be brought to the attention of the IHSAA. If they turn any spectators away to keep it at capacity, then that needs to be brought to the IHSAA's attention, too, because that is money lost.
The IHSAA says they want what is best for the people, but they don't actually make decisions based on heart-wrenching stories or how people feel. They do have a history of basing their decisions on laws, safety, and money.
