Argue that Columbus has been a drag on the league because they haven't iced a winning product yet (typical of most expansion franchises in most major sports) if you must, but please don't be an idiot and toss Columbus into the fray as one of the teams putting a financial strain on the league.
I have been telling people this for a while but it doesn't seem to sink in. Columbus is supported better that a lot of the teams that people want kept around but they are always on the list of teams in this group that people want to get rid of.
