Editor's note:    Basically the Woosox can advertise anywhere that they want around the City of Worcester with their lease.    It is not a loophole, it is giant hole in the lease that benefits the WooSox immensely...

  • Do we have any control as to what types of advertising can be sold??  
  •  The WooSox can signs advertising deals with anyone they want and we have no control on the content???
