    Can’t even have minority stake in another team. Corporate ownership is for the birds anyway

    It's just been way too damn long for them. Willing to bet next season they bounce back attendance wise pretty noticeably. Not to like, upper-echelon levels, but a bounce back for sure.
    Im willing to bet they wont

    Like you said, you have a lot of sports teams in one area. Plus college football and NFL take priority over other spots like hockey, basketball and baseball.

    The Lightning do well because they've been a winning team pretty much for the last decade and the arena is downtown Tampa close to the waterfront. A lot of great bars and restaurants nearby as well.

    The Panthers play in the middle of nowhere. It's like a good 60 min drive from Miami or even 25-30 mins from Fort Lauderdale. The arena is like on the outskirts, so far away from the coast.
    I went to a panthers game in 99, my god that place is really in the middle of nowhere, they were playing calgary and there were like 10 people at the game

    lets go orange jays. Provide a set back for the astros while also maybe knocking rays out of division contention by the time we play them.

    I know we all agree that the Blue Jays could never have survived the 2 extra down years the Orioles experienced in the zero fan 2020 60 game season, and the extremely fan limited 2021 season which Toronto played mostly in the U.S.

    And we all agree that the Orioles only achieved their 93 wins with the 5 first overall draft picks they received for being so crappy for so long.

    According to the fangraphs website the 1st overall pick Ashley Rutchman led the Orioles to Victory with 3.9 fWAR, along side the other 1st overall picks... ummm... Gunnar Henderson (42nd pick?), Anthony Santander, Austin Hays, Cedric Mullins, Ryan Mountcastle, Kyle Bradish, Felix Bautista, Kyle Gibson, Danny Columbe, Yennier Cano, and Grayson Rodriguez.

    We will not be giving the Orioles any credit for passing on Austin Martin and Jordan Groshans or any other savy pickups, decent scouting, or development of vets from the Dan Duquatte regime.

    It was the 6 straight 40 win seasons (or was it 7?) that got them here... and now that they've used up all these 1/1 picks what do they have coming for the future?? (news flash, most of the picks from all the years of losing haven't started contributing).

    Rangers down by two going into the 9th against the Red Sox.

    They are in freefall right now.
    The game begins in the spring, it blossoms in the summer, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall all alone.
