Ticket price increases seem to be somewhat align with GDP growth...although it would be better if that was the weighted average ticket price. Too lazy to check inflation.
Average players salaries are going up at nearly 9% compounded annually...again, it would be nice to have median player salaries because these figures tend to be skewed.
If you read between the lines, it basically suggests that star players have high bargaining power and have experienced the fruits of their labor...not necessarily at the expense of fans at the ticket booth, but rather the owners' margins.
fyi, im beyond tired at this point of the night and typing is becoming somewhat of a chore.
