I think that not scheduling big games concurently with other events could be avoided, but to take it to the other end of the spectrum and say that we shouldn't host anything the same day as anything/anyone else is a bit extreme. If we start restricting people's choices and say that "this is the only game this weekend, so you either come or don't play....", people will buck that. They will feel forced, and it eliminates options for those who are transportationally handicapped, have dislikes to a particular host/site, or don't want to drive far out of thier way. I don't know about the rest, but I'll continue to host games so long as people are willing to come out, regardless of what anyone says. Keep in mind that a host doesn't make any profit off hosting, and most times doesn't even get to play himself. Once I get my field up, I'll be having games every other weekend.
