Couldn't be at all to do with fans questioning the decision of a club to charge such an obscene price for a game of football. No not at all.
It won't stop if they keep paying the ticket prices.
I know you've mentioned your reasons for not going to United games now, and I think the price was one of them? I've certainly got family who haven't renewed season tickets in recent years for that reason. City returned nearly 1000 tickets, I believe, for that game. I doubt I'd pay for a season ticket if I still lived up north. That's the only way that a difference is going to be made, unfortunately. The PL is too entrenched in greed from top to bottom now.
I'm starting to feel burnt out on football because of it now. When I was a kid I'd watch every minute of the sport I could. Now I watched United games, some international matches and that's about it. Haven't even watched MOTD in a while. I think that without the emotional connection to the club, I wouldn't watch top flight football anymore, honestly.
