Yeah, but that's not what the article is about. It's about the ability of the city to support teams based on the average income, not the viability of the franchises themselves.

For example, the Nuggets were 15th last year in attendance, the Broncos 5th, the Avalanche 24th and the Rockies 12th in their respective leagues. Clearly not the worst major sports city unless based on the article's criteria.
