Yet they swallow money on countless occasions to take risks. Guys are bought out and new guys are signed. Avery was paid to GTFO. etc, etc. Yeah, these guys are good with money but at the same time if owning teams was about the business venture first and having fun with a toy second then most of these guys wouldn't own teams; they're not typically very good investments. I'm not saying to be frivolous but everything is relative and we're talking about a player making less than double the league MINIMUM. Chrisssakes, if an owner isn't willing to deal with something like that then he bought the wrong toy.
And yes, when we're talking about billionaires with a "B" 900k is probably a lot more like a few hundred bucks to the rest of us.
