Sorry. You are wrong. Check Padres attendance for the last several years at Petco. It is lower than it was the last several years at Qualcomm. Attendance surged the first few years at Petco then dropped below the Qualcomm average. That's how the scam works: the team gets its fat subsidy, gets a new facility, raises prices and attracts fans initially because of the novelty effect. Then the novelty wears off and prices have to come down -- one reason the Padres have been lowering prices the last several years. Best, Don Bauder
