The 1977 Dips were offensively impotent, scoring a paltry 31 goals in 26 games, for a 1.2 goals per game average. However, the Connecticut Bicentennials were slightly more inept, tallying just 3o. The strange thing, however, is that this 10-16 team averaged 13,068 per game at RFK. The 1978 & 1979 Diplomats, each of whom made the playoffs, averaged just 10, 783 and 11,973, respectively. One side note, the Washington Post's sports editor made a rather unfortunate choice of words when constructing a headline for the game.
