But that’s my point, they wouldn’t. Proper fans would of course. But if you’re just a casual visitor, if there is something better to watch you won’t bother going. It’s these lower league clubs who need the money more, so it would be a real shame.
It’s the same for PL teams outside the top 6 as well to be fair. How many West Brom fans will go to watch them play Stoke in the middle of January if it is on TV? Sure, the hardcore fans will, but some won’t bother.
