as long as most revenue comes from TV it won't make any difference until the broadcasters start cutting.

I agree

but where attendance does have weight is in long-term decisions such as team relocation. In an entertainment industry where a live audience is visibly present, in terms of PR, a bunch of empty seats doesn't bode well for maintaining a reputation of high demand.

Recall when Romney was speaking to empty stadiums. It didn't make for effective propaganda in favor of the Establishment.
