Losing in the first round again would more likely just cause another stir among those of us who have followed this team for years than it would have a negative impact on new coming fans. We have to look at this in the short term. Interest in the team is growing which will cause the fan base to grow. It might be slower than we'd like, but we have to have patience. Short term we need money. It's unlikely that a second round appearance would net a noticeable difference in attendance next season, especially during football season. Since we shouldn't rely on a healthy spike in attendance anytime soon I think the one thing we have to be happy with is simply making the postseason thus giving us a shot at making noise and being guaranteed extra financial benefits to help strengthen the club.
Making money means the team stays. Losing money means the team leaves. This is one of those big picture situations.
