Just a case of killing the goose that laid the golden egg-same w/all forms

of entertainment.
-"cut the cable" when the bills get well over $100/mth
-music sharing such as Pandora or Spotify instead of buying expensive CDs to hear one song
-watch sports on TV instead of paying hundreds of dollar$$ to attend games
-Netflix instead of paying $40-50 to go to a movie

When college games are costing $75 per person/game, and pro sports well over $100 per person (add in $8-10 beers and $4 water, $20 parking and on and on)- no wonder attendance is down. Sports are wonderful entertainment but greed and the marketplace will decide what people will pay, and what will win out in time. Without corporate American no way pro sports will continue to survive at current costs, IMO. How long will corporate American continue to spend that kind of money? I don't know, but....I see a lot more resistance to huge entertainment expenses than I did say 8-10 years ago.
