Getting a real sweet lease, parking revenue, skybox revenue, on field advertising revenue, actual concession revenue, having no overseer of what they can and can not do can go a long way.

You mention tourist revenue, I cant think of a more populated tourist base than the hotels filled in rosemont. All within walking distance to the proposed field. Sure it wont be to see a old historic field but maybe it will be to see a good ball club. Yes I know that is
heresy.
