Across the four major American sports, there's an attendance crisis. More fans are staying at home, and savvy teams are beginning to diversify their offerings. Earlier this week, the Golden State Warriors announced a plan to allow fans to come to every home game for a monthly fee of $100. Getting into the building at Oracle, the NBA's most sold-out arena, is tough, and the Warriors hope to bring some fans who might not usually be able to attend into the mix.
The only catch? The monthly passes do not include a seat, or even a view of the court.
However, it's not the rip-off it might seem like at first glance.
