Being a Jai Alai fan and Decoupling as a Free Market Capitalist

I must admit as a Free Market capitalist, although I am also a big jai alai fan, I agree with decoupling 100%.

Simply put, like any product including entertainment, fans are not entitled to any form of entertainment their own support of does not sustain on its own.

For the last quarter century plus, jai alai's fan base has left, with the exception of a small group who, on their own, is nowhere close to the break-even point, let alone 'be in the black point" of any fronton.

So as a Free Market Capitalist, I have no disagreement at all with the logical decisions these entities made. If casinos go into the red, I have no issue with those closing also. Or horse tracks. Or dog tracks.

It was fun to watch, and we did have traditional jai alai a long time.

I enjoy Magic City, but respect their right to decide on their own whatever length of time their run is, btw.

Free Market Capitalism is not something one can believe in just some of the time.
