Snowfall led to financial hit for MIAA football

FRANKLIN — Since the organization’s creation in 1978, the bottom line for the MIAA has always been about two things: matchups and weather. At Tuesday’s meeting of the Football Committee, each was blamed for a sizable financial hit to end the fall season.

With snow on both the Tuesday semifinals and Super Bowl Saturday, attendance overall was down from 59,968 in 2011 to 49,939 in 2012. The numbers led to another bleak figure, a net loss of $100,000 compared with the previous year for the MIAA.
