Default Re: Expansion teams in Pittsburgh

some circles felt we would lose the Pirates before we would ever get any other team in town - I'd love to see an NBA team in Pittsburgh, although do enjoy watching the world cup - just can't get into the league on any regular basis

- with Pirates still not really filling the seats despite a little upswing, don't know where a new team would pull ticket sales from - I have zero clue about where most of the income for a team usually comes from - but I'd think that without a rabid interest I agree, prob neither going to happen. I'm sure at first, like opening any new field, there would be a brief explosion of attendance just to check it out, but then fizzle. Just mho :)
MacReady: Beaver pics - don't think we're in much shape to do anything about this thread
Childs: Well, what do we do?
MacReady: Why don't we just . . .wait here and post for a little while longer . . . see what happens?
