We all know that The Price to buy out Champ's contract is $8,000,000. I believe this is the biggest factor of wether JF retains or dismisses champ. If ticket sales decline and boosters pull funding doesn't the amount lost from the boosters, ticket sales, and concessions cost much more than the buyout?? Furthermore if the team remains mediocre isnt this a much larger margin of diminishing returns than the price of the buyout? It's my belief that paying the buyout would be cheaper...providing we have a coach lined up and ready to go. This energizes the players, fans, and boosters. What say you?
