How many season tickets are they really going to lose if they donít make the playoffs but came close? Not enough to make a diff imo. Well a playoff team that is one and done doesnít have that much selling value to me. Sell the future and what you intend to do to add to the team to make them a playoff team next season, that sells if your fans really follow the team
Carolina is struggling down there financially... and has never been on firm footing. It's much easier to talk about it as an abstract than when you're dealing with the actual realities. For these weak markets, it's very tough to operate "long term" when you are struggling to gain any sort of traction with the fanbase.
