Obligatory Jets Post
I am a bit concerned over what this NHL euphoria will do to personal debt in Winnipeg, though. A lot of Winnipeggers want to support the team and live through the full experience by buying paraphernalia, concessions, and the like. While only 2.4% of Winnipeg's population will be at any given game*, this audience won't be exactly the same people at each game.
On a brighter note, Winnipeg still is in a better economic state than it was in the 1990s. So, hopefully, a broad swath of Winnipeg can support their NHL team without going too deep in debt.
*The MTS Centre Seating Capacity is 15,015. Winnipeg's population is 633,451.
(15,015/633,451)*100 = 2.4
