Why kill The Who if the album and tour create momentum and lucrative returns?

Announcing it's the end creates more momentum and more lucrative returns. Plus they may really believe it's the last tour. If it were to be the last, wouldn't you, as a fan, want to know?

Fo-sho!  Yeah right, Roger putting a cap on the Who right *before* their new
album and tour that took 22 years.

As before -- announced last tour should boost sales. They can always come back (if they're willing to bear the ridicule). But announcing AFTER a tour is over that hm, looks like that tour was our last -- that's a bad idea for a number of reasons, money being among them.
