Does the Cow Palace take money from the state? NO! I find it interesting that people who criticize a venue for a show failure are the first to blame the venue. NOT the lack of management of the show or team. As I've said before, do you tell your landlord that you're not making the money you thought you were, so can I pay less or no rent. The other tenants can pick up the financial slack. Would you do that DaveYardShift? I don't think so. Putting together a sports team takes more than having athletes. Common sense and great management just to break even in this market. BTW? I'm still wondering what the millions in improvements are? Anybody with knowledge want to answer that one?
