The team isn't making money off the stadiums anymore so they really aren't that worried, their money comes from TV deals. Now if the simple answer is to lower the costs of the tickets in those cities, but I think you would find that even if they did fans wouldn't show up. B/c most of the teams you pointed to aren't good and have had long bouts of being bad (ATL/SD as the exceptions). But my point is that THOSE teams I pointed out are the problems, when the issue is so big that they cannot hide the issue then they need to move. Especially for a good team like SD.
