Plus people might actually want to show up or tune-in to watch, as opposed to what seems to tend to happen with the pro indoor meets in the Northeast.  If there were a throws meet in Denver in the next month, I likely would want to go see that and would be willing to pay for the privilege.  Additionally, it builds toward the Olympics (or World Champs) and indoors only builds towards Indoor World Champs, which frankly is not much of a draw and likely never will be.  Indoors for pro athletes seems to chiefly be a way to lure athletes with prize money into competing in a minor spectacle forced onto broadcasters when said athletes could be better off either training or racing on the roads or on turf.  Give them more opportunities to earn money competing during their prime season on home turf rather than tempting them to compromise their off-season.
