The bolded is obviously not true as people have shown. If you want to go to an Oilers game just like if you want to smoke or drink or put gas in your car you will pay the price and grumble about it but for the most part you will still go.
So what isnt complicated is the fact that it isnt really impacting Katz's bottom line except theoretically.
