The 2 jackpot games which are forced out each week, make it more fun as well. Plus to IN THE KNOW's comment, I understand that viewpoint, but if you have a smaller roster, you make the performance 2 games shorter would help more, you dont lessen your product you shorten the program, I would say 90% of people would rather watch doubles then singles, this isnt tennis, and marketing is based on whats better for the fans, not the players. The point is to put more people in the stands and make more money. I LOVE singles, when there is 3 or 4 a night, and it makes it more exciting, not half the card. Plus how many people stay from 7pm til lmidnight and watch the whole performance? The players IM SURE would be happy to get out at 1045 rather then 1130+. Well the late gamers would atleast. Just my 2 cents, I like the product orlando puts out, been a couple times including the citrus and I went home happy. This from someone who used to go 3 or 4 performances a week, I think if they wanna go with a smaller roster, a 12 game card with more supers and add a couple pick 3(you can even carry them over too) would make for a more exciting and profitable night of jai alai. And simulcast the signal, im sure you can compete with miami thur matinee and dania thur night, which will boost your pools on the slow day, and you can add alittle extra to the pools which in turn make your live audience bet more on busy nights.
