Can't say that I agree with this. I can't really afford to go to each home game but I find a way to do it because I wait all winter to return to IWS to see those 10 games... If the Ticats aren't around, what is going to get me off the couch to make me want to spend money I don't have just to get out. - lawrence

That's the thing about studies though lawrence not all answers will be the same but at the end of the day you will get an overall picture. Based on the research, the overall picture shows the money simply goes elsewhere within the community, whether that is nights out or even just movie rentals and pizza delivery.

I do not doubt what you say, you just may be a statistical outlier.

That's at least 15,000 people who are out in their community whether it's actualy bringing in any money or not. It's bringing 15,000 people together. I don't think you can put a price tag to that. - lawrence

I can understand that lawrence, but when a city is in the financial position this city is in, I think we need to try.

Good post though... good stuff to think about.
