It's hardly comparable
Those markets also had total revenues around $50 million each, not including revenue sharing whereas Vancouver's total revenues exceed $130 million. Until those markets have both respectable attendance AND healthy revenues, they will continue to be met with criticism on the HOF business boards.
Baby steps I guess..
I'm sorry but if you're paying $250 for a ticket you are being gouged. I mean what if you had a family of 4 and wanted to take your kids and wife? You're at $1,000.00 just for tickets and you haven't even factored in food/beverages, parking and gas(if you drive). Also $50 might seem cheap to some but to others it isn't depending on their income level and whether they just go alone or with friends or a girlfriend/wife.
