Yeah, it just seems like a big risk for me.
Like even if the fan-base is "loyal", its one thing to not expect people to give up and another to expect them to come to the arenas at the same extent and pay huge ticketprices and so forth. Some will undoubtedly still follow the league but do it from the couch. And half of the experience when going to a game, is to experience the atmosphere, and before you know it you got a ugly looking spiral where people don't go to games because there is no atmosphere...
