    Braves Attendance Will Surpass Last Years

    Pretty good article. It states that tickets sold for the remaining games already put the team ahead of last year's sales. It also mentions how rare it is for 2nd year attendance in a new stadium to beat the 1st year.

    it also looks likely that it will go up next year...there is usually a one year lag between when a team turns it around and the full effect on attendance

    Outside of year 1 of a new stadium the only thing that increases attendance is winning. The Braves are winning. Hopefully this continues.

    If we start losing we should just build a new stadium each year to keep attendance up.

    If you don't invest in the team you can't expect to reap any benefits.

    We should just build each new stadium a few miles north of the old one. That way, we will eventually hit New York City and that is where the real money is at! But then if you keep doing it you will eventually hit Ivujivik in Northern Quebec. They only have 400 people there and I'm not sure if any of them like baseball. But you gotta risk it for the biscuit.

    I always hated hearing "we need a new stadium to bring in more revenue so we can be competitive" BS. Rather than building a billion dollar stadium how about we just give them 10-15 million a year instead. Thats what we did with the Saints.
