It's almost like if you were to put the Sharks in Dublin or in Salinas.
They still had financial issues in downtown Phoenix, though the arena wasn't suited for them and it was their first 8 years. I'm not really sure if they would have progressed much even if they had just fixed the downtown arena. I remember when they first moved they had to do little tutorial videos on how "easy" it was to drive to the new arena.
I do see where you're coming from though, I live 45 minutes away from San Jose and would definitely attend more if I lived closer.
