Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Where have all the Cardinals fans gone? On Monday, for the first time in the 36 postseason games played at Busch Stadium III, one of those contests did not sell out. And as of early Thursday night tickets for the first two games of the National League Championship Series, on Friday and Saturday in St. Louis, still were available on the Cardinals' website. The non-sellout Monday was the fourth game of the Cardinals-Braves best-of-five National League Division Series that the Redbirds won with a blowout victory Wednesday in Atlanta.

MLB attendance has been declining for something like 15 to 20 years, yet revenues have been increasing to records levels over the same period.

Just like in society, working and middle-class Americans are getting economically squeezed thru stagnant wages and the rising costs of everything ...

including, of course, high ticket and concession prices at the baseball games themselves.

People no longer have the disposable income as they once did for a family of four to go to a major league ballgame and drop a few hundred bucks for one night's entertainment of the National Pastime.

The MLB douchebag billionaires who own the 30 MLB teams are just as greedy and selfish as the rest of America's greedy and selfish douchebag billionaires.

I read DigitalEconomy in the 1990's during the Internet craze. This was predicted, as each eyeball becomes more important as competition for eyeballs increases.

Those $8 Trump sharpies probably aren't helping.
