Agree but they should be related. A team that has trouble drawing will most likely have the same problem attracting TV viewers. Now there are exceptions. Maybe Tampa Bay which has trouble drawing may attract a large senior TV audience but seniors typically are not what TV execs want. If White Sox fans avoid the Cell due to crime, then maybe they have considerably better TV numbers.
