    Good article, Chuck. Here’s my 2 cents….

    The Bucks have been steadily raising the ticket prices the past couple seasons, yet the Bradley Center still isn’t that great of a place to watch a game. If you aren’t in the lower bowl or first 2 rows of the upper deck, you can’t see anything. For example, tickets in the last row of the upper deck were $65 face value to see the Warriors. I get that it’s the best team in the league and everything, but you couldn’t pay me $65 to sit through an entire game up there, especially when you can watch at home for free and see everything in HD, close-up, and with slow motion replays. Not to mention avoid DT traffic, and paying $20 to leave your car in a garage for 3 hours w/ no tailgating to make it worth it. Hell, a Packer game is starting to become cheaper than some Bucks games these days (and no one would argue the experience is 10x more electric).

    Even with a team full of young, talented players, the Bucks also still play really inconsistently at times, and I can see why people wouldn’t be gung-ho about seeing them just yet. IMO, people don’t want to pay more to see the same average Bucks in the same below average arena, but they’ll definitely be more willing to splurge when the new arena arrives and team performs a little more consistently.

      Thanks man. These are all great points especially when talking about the marquee games like Golden State and Cleveland. The arena plays a factor in all of their struggles with getting people through the door. At Miller Park, there are very few ‘bad’ seats in the stadium, therefore, the upper deck seats don’t seem as bad. The traffic and parking needs to be figured out with their next arena. My hope is it becomes easier because that’s one reason to not attract the non-Milwaukee residents.

      Go Bucks.
