You want normal fans back, lower ticket prices so they don't have to wait for a tax return just to be able to afford to go to the game.
Arthur Blank did exactly that when he took over the Falcons...he wanted people who lived near the Georgia Dome to attend games so he had several areas where fans could pay like $20 for a ticket (might have even been lower)

I wouldn't pay that kind of money they ask better things to spend my money on. I'll watch them at home or go to a sports bar for $10-12 of wings and a coke (free refills) and bank the rest.
