Finally, don't have problem with the baseball talk but this is where it should be, one for football wouldn't hurt either.

What I have learned now about football....There is a Flag, team timeout or injury on every play in the NFL....and the quality of play on the field is going South....Its unwatchable...I was the biggest Cowboy fan on the planet when I was a kid

Color me confused -- that park must be smaller than I realized....I thought it odd when they announced the attendance as being in the 30,000+ range...didn't realize Progressive Field capacity is just over 35,000....no wonder they can't make any money.

That was probably the result of moving into Progressive field and having a few good teams. Municipal Stadium held twice as many people.

Teams make $$$ on TV contracts, which run in the multiple billions of dollars, concessions and team apparel, not attendance. Many baseball parks are half full; some are empty. The Marlins recently drew approx. 3500 to a game. The Yankees are in a pennant race and drew 30,000+ yesterday; stadium holds in excess 0f 50,000. Watching on TV, one can see plenty of empty seats in NFL stadiums as well. Nothing but blabber mouth announcers who drone on about drivel; commercials ad nauseum and complete hype by ex players who never stop talking.

I know that nef....it was just a surprise to me that a newer stadium had such low capacity.

I'm not sure what the structure is in MLB, but it's not the same as the NFL....On their own, I don't think the Tribe pulls in that much money as the big market teams.

Doesn't MLB now have a significant profit sharing plan in place? I was almost certain that the luxury tax money was divided amongst the "poorer" teams.+

Speaking only national TV contracts which in the case of the NFL is over $20 BILLION! Thaat's right; BILLION!! MLB TV contracts are in the BILLIONS as well. Otherwise, how could these players make the astronomical salaries they command?

Approx. 50,000 seats in " new " Yankee Stadium vs. 56,000 or so in the original. Cleveland Municipal Stadium held around 81,000.
