And the point slappy is trying to make is that casual fans will come to see big-time teams, especially those consistently ranked in the top 10. That will help revenue. MD football has sucked for so long that there are very few die-hard fans who are willing to give up their saturday and their cash to see them play. Especially, when said team is starting a linebacker at QB. They have no reasonable shot to win. Unfortunately, "any given Sunday" does not apply to Saturday.
There are lot's of entertainment options in the DC area, and for many, watching a 2-10 team play football is not very high on the list of options. Especially when the opponent is Wake Forest.
