It sounds like they are also adding some pretty cool incentives. Is this solely due to McCourt issues or do you think there will be some sort of decrease in general in the MLB or maybe even throughout sports?

This is simply a Dodgers issue.

Having followed the situation somewhat closely, I really believe that once McCourt is out of the picture, and the Dodgers get an owner who actually cares about the team, and doesn't just view them as an ATM, the fans will return to Dodger Stadium.

It's simple economics...at the price they are charging for tickets, nobody is willing to pay that to watch a bad team.

I haven't heard anything on what the Sox will do for 2012, but if I were them, I'd do the same thing. They didn't reach 2 million in attendance this year, and with a team that is most likely to shed payroll, I can't see too much demand for tickets going into next year.

I think this is about McCourt alienating the fans more than anything else.

Totally agree. And...I love the quote you have from Caple. That's great!

The Sox did draw over 2 million at 2,001,117 for 2011, but I also agree with you that lower ticket and parking prices along with charging the same amount for all games should be in order for 2012 on the Southside.

Or how about dynamic pricing working in the opposite direction? (prices going down for games that are less popular.
