Does the Arrowhead home field advantage still exist, or are we a bandwagon town?

So I usually make it out to Arrowhead once or twice a year when a friend is nice enough to extend an invitation. During the Marty and Vermeil eras, the place, as you all know, was rocking. But over the past few seasons, the crowd has been pretty lame — not that loud, and also heading for the exits in the late third/early fourth quarter to “avoid traffic.” Lame. Clearly, the Chiefs losing record is going to have an impact on the level of excitement in the stadium, but I feel like we, as Chiefs fans, may be overly impressed with ourselves and how great “we” are as fans. Even when Green Bay sucked, they were ALWAYS sold out and the place wasn’t half empty at the end of the third quarter.

So my question is this: have the ticket prices caused the true die hards to flee? Or were we simply riding an extended bandwagon phenomena through the winning years that falsely led us to assume that our fans are better than they actually are?
