To answer the question, I would hedge and say, "barring class action lawyers wrecking the sport at all levels, yes, I think the H-Y game will continue."
That The Game has continued to attract a following--a sellout in Boston and about 50,000 fans in New Haven--despite Yale's sorry performance over the past 15 years tells me that it's future is secure. I buy at least a dozen tickets for me and my 60-something friends (none of whom were involved in sports at Yale).
Let's face it, the event has more to do with tens of thousands of HY grads affirming their place at the top of the East Coast pecking order than anything that goes on in the Bowl or Stadium (I know that sounds snobby, but it's true).
I am confident that, were Yale to return to its old perch near the top of the League, and an Ivy title were at stake on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, there would be more than 60k in the Bowl.
