This is true, The Lions are a good value, Braley will have no problem selling
Skulsky did say, however, that there is a “pretty good line of people interested in buying this club.?
“These are not tire-kickers. These are legitimate people who are interested in buying it.
“When the time is right … David is going to find the best owner for the club. Not the owner with the deepest pockets or the most money. This is not what this is about. This is about finding an owner that’s passionate and committed to this community.?
Skulsky said he hadn’t yet decided if he would lead a potential ownership group, but left open the possibility of him choosing to do that when the time comes for such a decision.
The Lions are coming off another semifinal playoff loss and an inconsistent 7-11 season under first-year head coach Jeff Tedford and Canadian Football Hall of Famer and team general manager Wally Buono.
After closing off the upper bowl in BC Place Stadium for this past season, the Lions averaged just over 21,200 fans over the course of their home schedule, based on attendance numbers from their website.
That’s about 77 per cent capacity in the lower bowl arrangement, which seats around 27,500.

The Lions Lease at BC Place is golden!
[i][b]The BC Lions pay no rent on the first $9 million of net ticket sales to play at BC Place Stadium, according to their contract with BC Pavilion Corporation that was released under freedom of information on April 21.
The contract was inked in fall 2011, after the stadium reopened from a $514-million renovation that included a new retractable roof. In 2013-2014, the public-owned stadium reported its latest annual loss, $13.3 million.
The public release ends a nearly four-year quest for the document that went through two inquiries with the Office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner. An adjudicator dismissed both PavCo and the Lions' fears of financial harm, should the contract be released, as speculative.
Since 2013, the threshold of $9 million in net ticket sales has been tied to inflation and is the first of a six-step rent calculation for the 10 scheduled Canadian Football League home games. After the rent-free $9 million, the Lions are charged 10 per cent on the next million, 12.5 per cent on the next million, 15 per cent on the next million, 17.5 per cent on the next million and 20 per cent on all amounts over $13 million.[/b][/i]
