The whole idea is the get the new market interested right away. The best way to do that is with a competitive team. The proven market is going to sell out regardless of whether the team stinks or not. You're going to maximize profits in the proven market right away regardless. In a fresh market you want to hook people in ASAP to maximize your profits. Columbus is a perfect example of how NOT to go into a new market.
