Both owners and players agreed that expansion into the areas people are all complaining about was essential to the growth of the league and important. One of the head PA members was also a big voice for keeping the team in Phoenix.

This expansion also created more jobs for the players, and owners are footing the losses to have increased revenue which is increasing player salaries.

Even without the Phoenixes and the Columbuses, the league would be financially unsustainable.
