I definitely agree with you, but the reason I think it's different than Citi is because the significantly less amount of seats. I mean, this stadium is literally a 2 second walk from one of the subways, I believe (saw an interview on CNBC). That attraction right there might make the arena look bigger even if they still aren't drawing well.
But you make a good point on how important it is to win to attract the additional players. Especially role players.
