So he's probably not wrong here...people just don't understand what he's saying and that's intentional.

 

If your team costs 2B and you make 100M annually, is that 'very profitable'?

 

now some people would say..."you made 100M !!!!!!"

someone else could say....."you only made a 5% return on your money, that sucks !!!!"

 

Perspective is going to matter and no-one has it.

Exactly. Angelos paid $173M for the O's in 93'. If he sold today at its current valuation it would be for $1.4B. Thats what. 800%+ return on investment in 27 years? And as the owner you hire the right people and kickback and enjoy the show. Unless you meddle like Jerry Jones, Mike Brown, Angelos, and other awful owners in sport then it becomes "work". 

 

We are well past the years of owners needing bank loans to secure a free agents contract. 

 

Steve Bisciotti once said "you don't buy a sports team to make money". I love the the Ravens, and everything he's done, but c'mon man. You don't buy a private jet to make money. You don't buy a yacht to make money. But those are things owners do too. Even if on the income statement at the end of the year you're a little in the red, check out your bank account and you'll feel just fine. And as you said, when you sell it, that's when you cash in like bank robbers. You go from 5% ROI each year, to 500% ROI at the end.

One year of profits from operating compared to the purchase price is not the way to determine profit margin. And that is an especially dishonest argument if we (royal we as in the Cards owner, not as in dude) don't mention the potential value and/or sale price.
