The first few years, they drew very well at America West. Sure, it was a novelty. At least 15,000 average out of a 16,000+ arena with some obstructed seats likely preventing even better crowds. People don't seem to recall that.

I flew there for a wedding in 1999 or so. Went to a Friday game, early November against Dallas, both teams very good to date, and the crowd was over 15,000, close to capacity.

Chicago has missed the playoffs the last two years. Guess what, their tv ratings have dropped about 50% in just two or three years.

I’m not sure I really buy that. PHX has never been a “damn good” market for MLB, NFL, or NHL, even when they’re in the playoffs. Cardinals went 13-3 in 2015 and were 23rd in attendance. Diamondbacks won 93 games in 2017 and were 20th in attendance. 2011-2012 Coyotes were in the playoffs for the third consecutive year and ranked DEAD LAST in attendance.
