Re: Selig's term extended through 2012
One factor that hasn't been mentioned in regards to attendance is that a lot of teams have decreased the seating capacity of their stadiums. Here in Cincinnati we went from 52K to about 43K when Great American BP was built. That is commonplace in other cities where they got rid of their cement doughnut like Atl, Pitt and St Louis.
I think Bud is slow to make decisions but overall he's been a good Commissioner. He does fight for the small market teams more than any other Commissioner has. After 15 yrs of Bud I'd have to say I like the guy.
