Stop thinking about wealth. Start thinking about numbers and ratios.
According to forbes, NFL owners on average made 33 million dollars each last year. Also according to forbes, the average net worth of a team is one billion dollars and the player payroll already makes up more than half the cost. That means the return on investment is 3.3% a year. Would you spend a billion dollars on an investment that's going to net you that little every year?
