As long as wealthy Russian businessmen and the government continue to fund the KHL, it will be fine. Can't last forever of course. The question is, in 30-40 years time, will A) the KHL be a large consumed and watched sport in Russia B) Will the average Russian make enough relative capital to pay prices like we see in some NHL cities.
Difficult to know. The Russian economy will inevitably grow for sometime, but of course a crash is likely given how its structured (But we can say the same for all economies really given the nature of the system).
Do you even know how much a franchise fee cost. I donno about mickydee`s but there are many franchises that cost a half million a pop. Depending on the franchise it takes years just to pay back those fee`s.
In fact I`m gonna have to guess that you have no understanding on how franchises work and leave it at that.
