Exactly he should of said, you're offering 250 it's yours. What happens after he gets the team wasn't Baums concern. What would happen next is a battle for JB the league and another court.

I liken it to if a guy buys a gun at an auction. When he walks out the cops take the weapon away because he is banned from owning guns, it wasn't the auctioneers problem and the guy knew owning the gun came with problems.
