Holy crow! Not exceeding 7%...what a DEGREE of a ticket tax!
Even if its only 7%, thats being quoted per ducat price. Which means the tax could be the ticket surcharge could be anywhere from around 7bucks to say 25bucks on more expensive seating. I won't even touch what the tax could be on loge seating.

Heres another rub. Oilers are never keen on hitting up seasons ticket holders with much in the way of increases as they dont' want to bite the hand that feeds them. What does this hold for game day buyers. Will they be paying MORE of the surcharge?

Beyond your grandstanding lets also realize that this ticket tax will be about 4times as much as the current tax. You keep trying to make it sound like its the same.
