I've always maintained that Jerry has it backwards. He uses past good attendance to "reward" the fans by higher payroll, more win-now moves and a better overall team; when IMO the investment in the team is what attracts the fans.

While I voted if you build it we will come, I think it's more along the lines of we'll fill most of the lower bowl and the good seats in the upper deck between the dugouts but the team has to be really good to sell the rest of the place.

Plus the overall high prices to go to a game and the funky ticket structures aren't helping things in this economy where income isn't so "disposable" anymore.
