Re: John Erardi: Buzz surrounding Reds comparable to 1992
I certainly think it is possible for the Reds to reach 3 million in attendance in the coming years. If the team stays good for several years it will definitely expand the market further and further beyond Cincinnati and add a lot of fans to the bandwagon.
The thing about attendance is that it is not nearly as important as it used to be. In years gone by a large portion of a team's revenue was directly tied to selling tickets to the games. Nowadays teams like the Reds get the vast majority of their revenue from TV contracts and revenue sharing. This trend is accelerating quickly. Selling tickets is still important, but it is no longer an obstacle to being competitive for teams in smaller cities.
