I find it funny now that all that has failed and the move announced you don't hear about his losses anymore. Just one of those things that make you think.

It is completely in a fog and that's just how they want it to be. The spin doctors did their job well.

To your point, no owner would or could continue to own a franchise that loses $20M a year. There is no way.

I believe he may run at a loss but I would be surprised if it were more than a million or two annually.
Per Forbes, NYI lost $16M last season. That's WITH the lowest payroll.
