How many times do you see professional sports teams complain about their arena/stadium as a reason why they don't get bigger crowds, build a brand new facility that draws decent crowds for the first year, then see attendance go right back to where it was in the following years if the product on the ice/field hasn't improved....the Miami Marlins this season instantly come to mind. At the end of the day it is all about winning.
True story. THat was the deal here with the Kingston Frontenacs. They move out of the Memorial Center to the 5000 seat K-Rock Centre and the team still is a dissapointment and they barely draw 1800 per game
