Most people do pay to see their own team. Certainly the season ticket holders do. It's not at the NBA level, but people would like to see guys like Crosby, Malkin, or Stamkos. They would like to see the O6 teams.
If it didn't happen, I doubt people who have already been buying tickets for years would stop, but it would just be an added perk. Catching a game on TV, or a highlight or two, doesn't do those players or logo's justice. I think even the PA wants home and home between every team. The big northeast corridor teams would rather not I'm sure, but they're not the only franchises in the league, even though they are the foundation on which the league is built.
