The owners have all those dimes because fans buy tickets, concession food/drink, gear and, most importantly, the stuff that is advertised on TV.
But, for better or worse, the only thing that your loyalty/cash buys you is the right to watch, wear, eat, drive or play whatever is provided on the field, sold at the stadium/shops or presented in advertisements.
You're either "in" or "out."
The only real "voice" you have is to opt out. I tried that to a small degree after Spygate, when I refused to buy a Herald or click on its web page or watch HSPN or click on its web page for over a year. I gave up when I realized that even here dozens of folks were still posting links to each of those organizations.
Like the rest of us who post on this board, you seem to be, beyond a doubt, "in."
