Newsflash: The NHL is a private sector business NOT a government entity. Tyranny is instituted by governments. No one is forcing you to take your business to the NHL, you are perfectly capable of taking your business elsewhere. Without compulsion and force there is no tyranny.
And btw, private businesses are not charities: They don't "owe" anybody anything.
