Well, this gets into another set of issues entirely. I think that, as the price of taking a family to a sporting event has skyrocketed in the last 25 years, there's an overall breaking point economically. I expect that in the next 5-10 years, we will see significant pressure exerted on Congress to outlaw certain practices for leagues that have an anti-trust exemption. Namely elimination of "exclusive" concession contracts for their venues.
