It explains why it's where it is now, and how perilous some of the existing events are. The PBA League bowlers are on salary for now, no prize money.

Just not enough revenue to get all of these things done.


Quote:
A key edict Clark had to meet was providing enough competition to fill the 36 hours of ESPN time for 2014.

Ultimately, the changes that were adopted included eliminating the Indianapolis competition that included the Tournament of Champions and PBA League Elias Cup Finals and moving the TOC to the already scheduled Detroit competition in January, and the Elias Cup Finals to North Brunswick, N.J. the night of Sunday, Feb 23, the TV finals date of the USBC Masters.

“That saved us a couple hundred thousand dollars in production expenses” for the Indianapolis competition, Clark said.

The moves led to the Xtra Frame event scheduled for Detroit being canceled, with the TOC essentially replacing it.

In addition, PBA League prize money was eliminated, though Clark said there technically still is time to raise revenue to cover it. PBA League players still will get their salaries.

The USBC Masters, which is a USBC event, in New Jersey Feb. 17-23 is not impacted by the cuts.

Clark said the PBA50 Tour and Regional program also will not be impacted by the cuts. (The PBA50 schedule will be released as soon as contracts for all the events come in, PBA50 Tour manager John Weber said this week.)

The fate of the Summer Swing, which is tied to a CBS Sports Network contract that has two years left on it, appears to be up in the air — Clark said there still is time to sell it, but that implies that if revenue can’t be raised for it then it could be cut.
