Not indexing for inflation always bugs me with a products whose price has gone up so much over the years like movies or the cost of sporting events.
True, but movies are counted by money, not by tickets sold. Obviously tickets being 5 times as much as they used to be is one thing, but with baseball, they are looking at it in a tickets bought sense and not in the dollars spent on tickets sense.
