I believe.


Whit needs to rework his response to you on charging for admission or consider some additional work. Saying he is not sure they make a profit, while maybe honest, is at least evidence of a decision probably made without the benefit of complete information.

I would guess they have attendance estimates for varying sports even without charging for admission. Seems to me there are a variety of ways they could pick a sport and test paid admission both in terms of covering staff costs as well as the impact on attendance. Then Whit could definitively speak to the operating impact, at least in the test case. The dollars may not be high impact either way but, with a tight budget situation any positive impact helps, even if it is just covering/subsidizing game operation expenses.
