Yeah, I agree with that but that was just plain dumb to actually expect that. I hope they weren't depending on that for money or anything. They'll always do well on the ticket sales but that doesn't mean the people are actually going to show up. They've made very half hearted attempts at upgrading the food/drink selection, fan contests, atmosphere, etc. I guess that speaks to your point that maybe they really believed that stuff but there are some things they could be doing right now that they just simply aren't doing. They are letting the thing rot, so I guess that speaks to my point about them not caring and understanding. We really don't know what they are thinking but yeah, they aren't reacting to anything.
