Oh, I agree with you. 29k is great.
More the point I was trying to make(which I think you grasped, I’m just elaborating to hear my own typing) is that everybody (ok, a lot of bodies) are crucifying fans in the 3 large markets for not coming out to games. If people in a relatively affordable area are feeling the pinch, then fans in expensive markets must be getting squeezed beyond belief. Something’s gotta give, and I can’t fault someone for buying braces or food or clothes instead of football tickets. No amount of promotion or advertising will change that decision. And so it shouldn’t.
I don’t know the solution, but I don’t think the problem is lack of interest… I think its lack of funds.
BTW… wage and cost comparison…
Avg house price where I used to live in Kelowna BC… just under 700k. Vancouver is more.
Avg house price where I live now in Sask… about 130k.
BC… started as an apprentice at $16 per hr, head painter $22/hr
Sask, apprentice starts at $28, head painter at the shop I worked $40/hr.
No, I did not get those backwards
