7th in attendace, but still no real spending on trying to improve any aspect of this team??? Only improvements are in the bank accounts for the owners. They say they want to win but that certainly doesn’t align with the actions or inactions of ownership and management??? Booo ownership and management!!!

Go Rockies despite the ownership!!

Rockies are 7th in attendance, but I wonder what they compare with the other teams in terms of gate revenue. Tickets at Coors Field are generally cheaper than at many other parks.

I don’t think its the gate revenue that is a problem.

The problem is ROOT contract with the Rockies was signed a few years ago when prices were a fraction of what teams are currently getting from TV rights. And I think the deal goes to like 2020 or something. YIKES.

Its hard to find the data. Maybe someone with a little insight could provide more info.
