Arizona has never attracted big (or even average-sized) crowds, yet they seem to come back every season. The CHL's bizarre crony-style business model keeps franchises like this afloat in defiance of basic economic principles. Quad City only exists because the now-former league owner couldn't find someone outside the CHL to run the thing.

The Sundogs should have been dead a long time ago. In any other "normal" league they would have been. But, this is the CHL we're talking about, so normal rules don't apply.
