If your sports franchise isnt making money for you well you still get the best seats in the house, get to invite all of your friends, rub shoulders with athletes, run a sports franchise, etc...
Basically these rich guys get to live out there childhood fantasy and they are upset that they aren't MAKING money? please. Go invest those 100's of million in boring ish and get 3% back. Owning a sports franchise isnt about making money its about having fun, anyone making money should be ecstatic.
What difference does it make whether they bought the team as a business or as a hobby? They bought the team and they have a right to try to
not lose money
by providing entertainment for us.
I'm just tired of this 99% bull ****.
