Sponsors follow the crowds more than wins and losses. That's especially true in the Northwest, where the sponsors ARE watching who they're reaching.

Blaming the media is counterproductive... I'm talking as someone who watched our fan group find ways around media issues.

I do have a suspicion... people here won't think twice about paying out $100-200 for NFL, but asking for $25-35 for NLL is a stretch. They'd expect 10-20. With all the inherent expenses, that price doesn't work for the owner.

I have to wonder... what if Bellevue had an arena? It's not so much that Everett is distant from Seattle (traffic going anywhere out of town is painful), I think Bellevue would take to the game more easily... and probably think of paying a few bucks more.
