They start sucking and then the fans bail.
Newsflash... not every team is going to be good. Every team goes through lean years - it's part of sports. There are plenty of franchises that would LOVE to have Dallas' successes, yet the suck for worse for much longer and they still manage to turn a profit because the fans, you know, actually like the sport.

Way too many excuses for poor fan support in this forum.
Using on ice success as justification is working against you here, as it shows you really don't understand the business and the situation Hicks put them in...
