You're passing your opinion off as fact.
As I've mentioned, McNair was going to buy a hockey franchise at first so it's not like he's some did hard football fanatic that just dreamed of having a football team.
And why would he change if he's not losing money ATM? Seriously?
No business person thinks like that. Was he losing money when he fired capers? No. But the point is that if you start to become less relevant in a market it's harder to climb back up that hill. Conversely, once you establish yourself as a giant, it's easier to maintain that success.
We really don't know his intentions as to why he wanted a sports franchise.
But I think you are way off base saying this is just a hobby. I think McNair is very proud that he has a very valuable franchise.
