Remember as well people are engaged in "boomspeak' at the moment. Theres nobody here in the 90's that would be suggesting that people would be spending this kind of money on entertainment back then. Premium Oiler tickets were going for 20bucks pretty much any night right outside of Northlands. Scalpers could barely give them away.

Guess what discretionary spending gets cut first during a downturn?

High priced entertainment.

Guess where were headed?
Again, why does the big family of four matter so much? Just because you people want to have tons of **** trophies running around, doesn't mean every form of entertainment in the city needs to be geared towards you. The single person, and 2 person family have just as much a right to entertainment then a big family. And you know what, if they made the decision to save money instead of procreate and they want to spend their expendable income on $300 worth of hockey tickets, what's the problem?
