Tell you what. Tell me what years Columbus has contended and also had poor attendance.
Attendance is a red herring, the weak sisters are not suffering from an attendance deficit they are suffering from a revenue deficit.

The hawks, like all teams, have their ups and downs. Focusing on the down times and saying " our team is down, chicago and pittsburg were down and they turned it around" is not a plan that instills confidence. How long can these teams persist on " we might turn it around, eventually ?"

By every available metric chicago is a better market long term than columbus . that isn't to say that it will always be a better market but over the long hall ( which I agree is based on predictions) I dont see that changing.
