You say "we drew fans for Spring training", and not the D-Backs bottom-third (20-25) attendance figures. The Coyotes are the worst NHL franchise now that the Thrashers are gone, and the Suns will historically fill about 70-90 percent of their 18K arena, 70% if they're bad, 90% if it's the Stoudamire/Nash 7-seconds and a shot days. The Phoenix Open is a spectacle designed to pack in as many fans as possible. It's no wonder, because the 16th hole is just a place to pack 20,000 ASU bros, which makes it easy to "draw more fans". And if this were golf, and you had more than one spectacle of a tournament, maybe you'd have an argument. If you're going to argue that soccer's going to be successful there, there are better places to start than moribund Big 4 franchises. You've certainly laid out a good argument why Phoenix has a good ownership group, but you've laid out a poor one about Phoenix being a bad sports town.
