what an easy to read graph
Whoever made that graph is clearly unstable. Atleast use a bar graph if your going to have that many different elements in it.
I think it is more intended to show the disparity between the team salaries 1994-present.
shows that some teams have come into the league and have never really improved financially and shows some teams that have gone from top to bottom. Look at Pitt, almost #1 in 94, if not #1 I can't tell, and now they are right down near the bottom.
I think this just shows that until the bottom markets improve their revenues, theres no where for the league to go. Hopefully there situation improves soon, hopefully this cap will help that a little.
450% mass raise for all NHL players since 1992-3.
50% decrease in entertainment value of the sport since 1992-3.
I believe ticket prices increased on average 33-35% since 1995-6, probably closer to 40-45% since 1992-3.
In short: Fans pay more, get less, and they ALL make out like bandits, from salaries to building perks to TV deals.
Actually, the creator of the graph is correct. You always use a line graph to indicate trends. Bar graphs should never be used to show this due to the inaccuarcies in viewing it......the creator should have subdivided it into sub-graphs though to make it easier on the eyes.
Sorry, but it was something from a graduate course fcousing on business communication methodology....had to chime in.
yea, pitt had the highest payroll around 1992-93.
