Let's say, for the sake of argument, he spends money to keep his talented players and fields a winning team that makes the playoffs most of the time. Do you think he will LOSE money on the team?

Without raising ticket prices probably. They don't make enough off merchandising, tv & radio revenue, concession & parking to probably sustain a team in the 50-60 mil range. Factor in the decrease in the peanuts payroll tax they get now by bumping up their payroll and he probably does take a loss.


Ohh - and the downtown K would obviously need more suites and should have field level suites to maximize corp dollars. What it doesn't need is a bunch of fan's zones stuff that will take up valuable space in a new park, detract from the focus of the game and can easily be setup outside in the parking lots which = saving that stadium room for crowd entry/exit or seats without sacrificing the beautiful sitelines
