He's a business man, and knows that if he can have a team that makes it to the playoffs, it would pay dividends.
Where is anyone saying that? I've seen people comparing him to Ballard and I agree THAT is dumb. People forget the dysfunction of the EIG and will appreciate Katz more after the new arena is finally finished and the team is stable for decades.

But it is OK to be critical of a team that has consecutive sellouts and is nowhere near the cap. I get that we are essentially rebuilding the salary structure and leadership of the team, but it could have been infinitely more efficient. Tamby and Lowe stripped us down to nothing and the team claims they lose money despite selling out every home game.
