And for the umpteenth time, it's called "SEPARATE ENTITIES" . Because they're wealthy in other endeavors doesn't mean they should piss even a single penny away to help support another one. Some of them like Pagula choose to do it because he's basically a message board poster fanboy who can afford an NHL franchise (among other things), but others don't feel they should be obligated to do the same. Nor should they.

Pro PA fans get annoyed that we're essentially telling them to shut up and play? Nothing irks me more than people saying "Well the owners are rich in other ways, so it shouldn't bother them to lose millions a year"
I read your post again and I'm still afraid I'm obtusely missing whatever point you're trying to make.
