Meh, have they really been good though? They've made it out of the first round of the playoffs once in their entire history, last year, amidst the ownership issues still plaguing the team. This includes a 6 year streak where they failed to make the playoffs from 2003 to 2009.

I doubt a team with that type of success would be supported even here.

Tough for fans to invest in that sort of situation.
Agreed completely.
