They are still better to crash and burn it and take the 2-3 years of being horrible so they are still relatively in people's minds when they start to improve again than to trickle slowly down into irrelevancy as they were on course to do with the old system.

Edit: and the fans will return. These things are always cyclical. It's relative for each team obviously, but bad years see reduced attendance and good ones the fans come out more. Thus has it ever been; thus will it ever be.
