The revenue sharing from the tv deals every year is more than the salary cap.

Essentially, your major expense is already paid for, which is a nice way to run a business.

Probably the same reason I didn't buy a Domino's franchise for $25k ~40 years ago. "What?!? There's no way that business will make enough money to recoup that. I'm going to turn all of my dollars into coins, because the economy is going to tank and coins will be worth more than their face value due to the cost of precious metals rising."

Ask me how that turned out.

Why weren't you born as one of the dumb McCaskey kids?  You could have been flashing that Halas cash all over Lake Geneva!

I remember when Donald Trump claimed that Jerry Jones made a horrible deal buying the Cowboys. Wonder how that worked out.

Because they wouldn't take Wacky Packs stickers as payment.
