Estimated is a total swag and often is inflated.
Unless you know which method was used by each team, your method is flawed.

Since you claimed Columbus came into the league offering in your words Super cheap tickets and claiming attendance is irrelevent, why would you use:

data from one season ELEVEN years later?
reported attendance?
I'm not sure what's being argued here, but what is your estimate on Columbus' revenues?

Iirc, the TV money was about $2 MM around 2007 or 2008.
