Return on Investment for NBA owners and fans
Return on Investment for NBA owners and fans
I created this chart using available public statistics on HoopsHype, John Hollinger/ESPN and Team Marketing Report. It plots how much an owner and a fan pay per team win. I find this chart interesting for the outliers. New Orleans has some of the cheapest tickets in the league and their owners haven't had to pay very much for the quality of their team. They are the best deal by far in the league. Conversely, even with New York's well-publicized mess and bloated payroll, it's the wretched Thunder who aren't winning enough for either their owner or fans to be getting their money's worth. Not to be left out, the evil Lakers have found a way to not only win without breaking the bank, but they can make their fans pay through the nose for it. They are projected recoup a stunning 92% of their player payroll just through ticket sales. The league average is projected to be around 50%. More charts to come as I think of them.
New Desiro Scotrail Class 380
New Desiro Scotrail Class 380
Due to the investment in brand new rolling stock and infrastructure , the new Desiro Class 380 Electric Multiple Units (EMU's) were introduced on the Ayrshire and Inverclyde lines and quickly cascaded throughout. This is the biggest passenger walk-through I've seen for years. Having taken a return journey on them , you can appreciate the smooth ride , probably due to the superior sound-proofing. One downfall I've noticed , is that the seats do not always meet the large windows , so you have to choose your seat with care. For those who don't know , the rail enthusiasts name the livery as 'Spotrail' for obvious reasons.
