Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Just a question to add to Kathy's news about the Fever/Kroger partnership -- The article mentions the Fever are losing money. How about asking how much money the men losing?

Pacers Sports & Entertainment President Jim Morris said the franchise has shielded fans from the tax by paying about $2 million a year in admission taxes.

"We've always eaten it," Morris said. "I think we're going to have to take another look going forward. I understand the rationale for increasing the tax. For a franchise already losing money, it will be difficult to pay it."
