No One Cares About The Fans
Sports teams don't care about fans. Yet amazingly, fans hold all of the strings. Fans buy the merchandise, watch and listen to broadcasts, and pay to attend games. RSL knows its consumers want their own stadium, and they want that stadium to be downtown and as cheap and simple as possible. But what actually happened? RSL put together a FAILURE of a plan that was in Sandy, extremely expensive, and mindbogglingly complex economically and politically. 1) RSL knew it could just get new fans in Sandy 2) Organized "fans" wrote this deadly blank check,"we don't care where or how, we'll still show up."
