You didn't read the logic. I said it's surely better than not making the playoffs, for the reasons I laid out (getting the extra million, maintain the fan base, etc).

My point is getting to the playoffs isn't going to do a lot for this organization as a whole. Been there, done that, 5 times. Until we make playoff noise, we aren't going to get new fans / new revenue. Or at least, we can hope and pray that is the thing that will create new fans.

I didn't ask if it's better to not make the playoffs. Let me copy and paste: "From a fan base standpoint, will losing in the first round build any "external excitement" for the team?"
