OK and you think the average Joe can afford that? Going to a Baseball game costs about $50 bucks for two! The ticket prices have gotten too hi just like salaries. In my honest opinion one of the problems today is there is no clear cut BEST player to judge against. Before you had Gretzky, Coffey, and Roy as the best of the best in their positions, so therefore no one should make anywhere near what Gretzky was making because they will never touch his records or numbers. Gretzky was also a player that loved the NHL and didn't demand to be paid insane money his WHOLE career.
