Of course, ticket prices are not linked to salaries, as you say.
You'll be surprised how much higher when accounting for actual "butts in the seats."

That's the driving point. Tickets, parking, concessions, in stadium advertising.

You think a team playing in a half empty stadium will have any bargaining position for a massive TV deal?
