How can it be weak? Aren't they making "little money" while not having to pay their players, employees, etc?

Also, owners of sports franchise aren't really counting on their team to support them financially. Sure, they don't want to lose money either, but in order to buy a team, they had to be rich in the first place. Owning a sport team is pretty much gravy for them.
