January Potpourri

It's been real quiet on the Rays' stadium front, but a few interesting links to kick off the 2011 sports business season:

Roy Peter Clark, the vice president of the Poynter Institute, which owns the St. Petersburg Times, penned a column saying the Rays' attendance woes have nothing to do with the stadium, using the Bucs' attendance problems as evidence.

Meanwhile, Times business writer Robert Trigaux details the many legal problems Tampa Bay's teams and players have to endure.

Finally, internet sensations continue to want their 30 seconds of fame on Super Bowl Sunday. Word is Groupon tried to buy an in-game ad but acted too late and had to settle for a spot in the pre-game show. Should be interesting to see what they come up with.
