Yes, but the fans... and general populace needs to believe they are latching onto something that's going to grow into something bigger and better. Not just something that will be considered 'good enough' with nothing but minor tweaks while other teams continue to improve.
What exactly does that mean though? Are you saying bringin back your own young guys and adding some moderately priced (if 8 to 10 mil a year guys are considered moderatley priced these days) pieces isn't enough to have more than a spattering of fans show up? Does that mean that the owner absolutely has to bring in a new max contract guy every year that didn't end in a championship? Price be damned? If the general fanbase in Indiana has an attitude that they aren't willing to show up unless the owner is going broke, then honestly the team needs to move somehwere that will support them ASAP.
