Patrick Roy is fed up and has just sent a clear message to fans

Quebec Remparts head coach and general manager Patrick Roy admitted that he was very disappointed with the attendance of his Quebec Remparts' playoff games.

Even though his team is performing and experiencing something special, the crowd is not as present as he would like.

As reported by the excellent Mikaël Lalancette (Le Soleil), Roy just sent a very clear message to the fans:

"We're going to need the crowd to be there," he said at the end of a press briefing Monday morning, without reporters broaching the subject. I've never been the kind of guy who asked people to come, but right now we need our fans. We need an excited, enthusiastic crowd. It takes people, we're in the final four." - Patrick Roy

The Red Devils' driver goes even further:

"They announced 7,000 [fans], but there were maybe 5,000 people in the building. We need people in the arena, it's good hockey, the show is great. We've wanted a competitive team for a long time and we've got one." -Patrick Roy

It will be interesting to see the response from the crowd, which is normally good at listening to the great Patrick.
