First, anyone who is thinking that the amazement with this tax is based on feeling sorry for Peter Forsberg or whomever is losing $, you are mistaken. (Though one must observe, the class envy around here is strong and unfortunate.)
Second, no one is telling any government or province how to run. The point is how it ties back into the economic structure and realities of the NHL.
Finally, the information provided on such a tax being levied in particular US cities is instructive. The condescending, ultra-defensive way in which it was provided, was not, ("genius"
). And, for this poster, at least, the fact that it goes on both south and north of the border in no way lessens the absurdity.
