The NCAA allows what could be called fake attendance numbers to assist the TV broadcast, remember they have a required number for attendance for bowl level school's,those numbers are attained by using students.

Recall that Alabama was complaining and calling out it students for not attending or leaving early leaving empty seats for TV.

The average attendance for Triple A baseball is around 6,000 some slightly higher some lower of course the MLB club is propping the club up,this same thing happens in other sports where the wizard is behind the curtain.

3,000 is a great starting point its not necessary for the football to start at large numbers especially if they are not using the repeated broken model or attempting to rebuild a new version of the nfl.
So with...
No students subsidies for "revenue"...
No realistic TV deal which isn't based on barter...
No major league franchise to cover the cost of labor...
No NCAA "amateur" rules which only cover cost of attendance...
No connection to a community like a college/university has to the town economy...
No name talent to watch

Yet you still believe this $hit can work.

3,000 fans at what price point?
$35? $20? $10 and $5 for kids?
What price since you talk as if you gots the whole damn math worked out, Bossman, which includes the office lease, stadium rental, equipment, player medical, Staff Trumpcare, et al.

Look at all the USL and NASL teams which fail as they cannot raise $1.5M and that's second/third league soccer whose expenses we know are much less. PROrugby only lasted in 2016 as they thought 3,000/ game was their breakeven point. Their average ticket price in their five cities was $40 and they averaged only 1,916 in San Francisco, San Diego, Columbus, Denver, and Sacramento.

(Renandpat) statement

A recent Seton Hall U. poll had 40% of Americans stating that college money making sport schools should pay players. The poll indicates that people think the lie being told by college sports people has to come to an end.

This season the TCU band started offering a $3,000 stipend to recruited members so that the band numbers could be increased, compared to other bands the band is small, they knew offering this stipend would increase its numbers. If the band can offer such a stipend ask why not lower numbers football basketball team?

When this happens within the money making sports at colleges,they too will operate differently, as for the rental of stadiums and office space that cost is always within the budget.

The health care is costly, but there are loop holes of which I won't discuss here but some leagues are already using. In short there are ways for that not to be costly.

The rugby simply out priced the product, even tough they did a one off event in 2016 that drew 7,000 they don't have nor have they developed a community large enough to support the system they are trying to create for a $40 ticket.

(yes the thing can be.)

Oh yeah the price point thing without offering a specific, because we are on a message board simply having an opinion discussion, If the health cost is maintained a team can be ran well within a sustainable cost effective system.
Happy Thanksgiving
