For you, or anybody in the Katz camp to suggest that the ticket tax is coming out of Katz's pocket please explain how this is the case when gate revenue, and average ticket prices(before surcharge) will be much higher in the new arena (and I guarantee you they would be).
I think to argue that this is Katz' contribution one has to point out how this is actually the case. It isn't.
Its the peoples money. Clearly.
It's money that could've been in Katz' pocket.
And I don't buy that in Edmonton you can charge any price. There are limits to anything.
So effectively he'd have an anchor on his ticket revenue.
