Re(4): Great list. And also - food

The late 80s strike was the tipping point. Casual fans were lost, attendance free fell, and handle also. That left rabid, knowledgeable fans betting vs themselves, and truthfully, casual fans made winning far easier. That caused some of the rabid to either leave or bet a bigger % of what they bet-elsewhere.

No sport with a huge following nor attendance does so via season ticket holders. They do it via thousands of come once a month max types, in tandem with season ticket holders. Jai alai lost the once a month types permanently when striking players resorted to violence vs property on the picket line.

Had fans not crossed, jai alai, at least in Ct, closes permanently faster. Bear in mind, Milford, 25 year run, was sitting on a gold mine of land right from its opening night. Players like Pedrario (perhaps spelled wrong) saved jai alai from closing in Ct far sooner. Make no mistake, although no one struck Milford, it needed the game to go on at Bridgeport during Milford's off season, too. One block behind US1 and a giant mall would be Developer Heaven.
