The Bisons seem to have their act together. Plus, they are in the same state, so getting to the other side of KY should be possible. I agree with all of the other posters who have mentioned it - this ABA/CBA cooperation has a huge possibility of creating a level playing field for the CBA and the ABA. If these games aren't blow outs, future investors will not see the distinction between the two leagues, and the CBA will be hurt much more than the ABA from this.
If the games are blowouts, fans aren't going to be too excited to come out during the month of December. Sure, your season ticket holders will probably be there, but having any ambitions of getting new customers during the month of December (if, in fact, games turn really ugly) may be foolish!
"What do your daily actions say about the pursuit of your dreams?"
"Our Dreams are the roadmap that God uses to get us to where He intends for us to be!"
"When I stand before God at the end of my life
I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.'"
"Delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart."
--- Psalm 37:4

The Bisons are probably better run than most ABA teams, but they still make way too many mistakes and are burning through money way too fast. If they end up with a couple of no-shows early they will not make it.
