If he goes big, he'll lose big.

$100M is not going to get him big enough to move the needle.

Someone (preferably several someones) would have to invest billions over a period of time, would have to steal NFL free agents and would probably have to come up with some stadiums of their own (or unique solutions) because many NFL teams have lease clauses that the facilities can't be used for another pro football team.

So if you put teams in the markets you need to be in to move the needle with TV networks, you are likely to be shut out of the main stadiums in those markets OR you'll be paying rent without the ability of revenue capture that is so key to a league that can't rely on major television revenue.

I agree losing big is the reality he is looking at, but shelling out millions is the only chance he has of getting a tv contract and approaching anything that competes with the NFL.
