You still don't get it do you?. Do you know the costs involved in simulcasting, at least to be competitive,

Satellite uplink charge per performance
More simulcast hardware and software expenses
At least 36 player roster
At least 12 games per performance
Two cameras and a switch with an operator
Web work for PDF programs downloads

I will estimate about $5,000 to $6,000 per performance, that means that Hamilton have to handle about an average of $40,000 to $50,000 per performance to break even. There are not enough of us out there to wager enough to support a third fronton in the simulcast spectrum.
