Now if they start to win, that could swing opinion, but they didnt think that was too important over the past 10 years and have really dug a hole for themselves when it comes to public support.
I don't know one person that wants the Jackets to go anywhere. That's how low the support is. We just don't have 12,000 people that want season tickets to a decade long loser. Yeah, I don't know dozens of my friends playing c and d league hockey. I don't know dozens of my friends that their kids are now playing hockey.
Sure if they want to kill the golden goose. Go for it.
Baseball? Please that would die a horrible death. They would never let pro football, basketball, or baseball in Columbus. There is little chance the Cavs would allow another team in Columbus.
