I'm not aware of the details of the Dallas case, so the following may or may not apply to them, it's a general statement.



A given team's performances (short term anyway) isn't an «excuse» for too low attendances, even though it can be an explanation. The reason is simple, there cannot be 30 teams in the top 16. It wouldn't make for a very viable league to have the top 16 be profitable and the rest be at risk of bankruptcy.

For those teams (something along the lines of bandwagon fanbase, to wherever that may apply) to be a sure long term asset, they would need to have a significantly higher chance of being good than teams with more loyal fans, which also doesn't sound like a viable avenue to me.
