WHY LEAVE HOME? In Raleigh, Caulton Tudor wrote with "all of the important games televised live, not only is it cheaper to stay home and watch," but there are "also more amenities." Tudor: "Free parking and/or no traffic jams. Beverages of your choice on demand, if you so choose." He added, "When was the last time you saw even a mildly controversial play rewind on the arena video boards? ... If a play involves any sort of difficult officiating decision, odds are you will not get [to] see a replay if you're in attendance." Tudor notes the ACC "recently completed a $2 billion television deal" with ESPN, and "with that kind of money, who needs in-house audience?" (Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER, 3/10).
