  1. Team management need to bring in more people to the games. During the Great Depression only ONE company showed a profit…Johnson and Johnson….they spent 90% of their sales on ADVERTISING AND PROMOTIONS (BY ONE GET ONE FREE) AT BALL GAMES, BASEBALL TEAMS MADE PROFITS ON IN BETWEEN INNINGS GIVE A WAYS. AND SHORT CONTESTS WHERE THE FANS WOULD BUY A TICKET AS A CHANCE TO BE ON THE FIELD TO TRY AND WIN SOMETHING….THESE THINGS FILL THE SEATS, AND IF YOUR FILLING THE SEATS YOUR MAKING MONEY. hOLY CRAP—-ECONOMICS 101.;

    1. Tommy, I don’t know what it is with arena teams but they don’t get the value of filling seats. They insist they have to sell tickets for $15 – $25 and that’s not the way to do this. A $5 ticket would bring in more than three times what they are now getting for attendance, so that’s at least a break-even before we talk about the real benefits. Sponsors will be more likely to ante up knowing they will reach more people with their in-arena ads. YouTube viewers will get excited about the team when they see all the fans going to games and maybe start buying team merchandise. Most importantly, there are concessions. Only a few – e.g., Tim Viens last year in Buford – have direct control over concessions, but all should have some form of revenue sharing with arena management companies. That could be more of a take than ticket sales.
