I'm not sure how, but it better, because 5 fewer home games at MSG means 91,000 fewer tickets sold per season. Factor in gate draw, consessions, souveniers, etc and you could be looking a $10Mil net loss.

As much as it would suck to see many original 6 match-ups fall by the wayside, the idea of promoting rivalries by eleminating interconference play is intriguing.
