And as I said before, way off of that.
It's not a case of Cambridge getting a team, it's a case of an arena being located in the midst of a surrounding area of multiple small cities that together could bring in a very large fanbase to support a team. And if Cambridge is in fact a relatively poor city, then the inclusion of a new arena that could draw people from all the surrounding areas would be an economic benefit, I would think.
