Somewhere in there was a point.
You attempted to an ask a question in this mess but the problem is you fail to understand the dynamics of the market you think you know about. Sacramento as a market in competition with the Bay Area and LA? Are you kidding me? There are 2.5 million people in the Sacramento area and the Bay Area is 100 miles away while LA is close to 400 miles away. The bottom line is that it stands on its own as a market.
The only way that anybody that has what could be considered as a major event is going to come to Sacramento is with the new arena. NCAA has already said as much with their tournament no longer coming here due to Sleep Train's status.
I will not even get into trying to relate California's state budget with Sacramento's city budget as if they are intertwined.
