I still see people bitching on Facebook about Luck screwing them on the ticket prices.  So let me ask this: in the 100+ year history of pro sports, how many times has a team reduced ticket prices after slashing payroll?  Probably more than a dozen pro teams slash payroll every year, and maybe 2 teams in history have ever reduced ticket prices.  Sports fans need to stop being such marks.  They charge what they can sucker you out of, and because of season ticket holders, corporate buyers, and legalized scalping like StubHub, they can even charge a lot more than you're willing to pay and let seats remain empty and they don't care.  There's no semblance of supply and demand anymore, much less a correlation between one players' contract and the ticket prices.  I wonder how people can be so stupid to think that we're not paying for Trump's tariffs and then I see sports fans complain about shit like this and it all becomes much clearer just how stupid the average person is, especially when it comes to macroeconomics.
