I agree that this is something that is a long road to fix and hopefully the road gets a little easier as we go.

One of the other major issues with the PBA (which nobody really notices) is the fact that the Regional Tour supports a huge portion of the National Tour (financially) which is backwards of every other sport.

Look at the payouts for any Regional Event and total up the difference in money paid in and how much the prize fund pays out. Rarely are they close.

For instance, in the last Regional I bowled (Merritt Island in the South Region) there was a minimum of $16,000 paid for entry fees if every single person was a member (which isn't the case). There was also $5000 donated into the event by the bowling center and another $5000 donated by local businesses. So in total there was $26,000 brought in by the PBA that weekend for the South Region alone. The total prize fund was $15,000 so it seems pretty obvious that there is a ton of money going somewhere. That somewhere is the National Tour I am sure.

I think if the Regional Tour's struggle the National Tour will fall apart, they are the only thing making any money at all right now.
