Arguments like those presented by dickallen here are frequently seen from hardcore fans who find it hard to step outside hardcore fandom and accept that the majority of fans attending sporting events are not hardcore fans, and that to many, "an experience" at a game can be as important or moreso than what happens on the field. The Cubs and Wrigley are a prime and nearby example. Sell the stadium and sell the experience and get people in the stadium. Winning is even better.

It's preaching to the choir that fans shouldn't "need" amenities, top-notch video, etc. at a game to want to come to a game - we here are ALL people who go regardless. But we are not the people that teams market to. They've got our money already.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
