it says that McNair first tried to obtain rights from the NHL for a Houston hockey franchise but was denied. then he and his business partners decided that the NFL would be a reasonable route. I don't know that we can really state his motives for starting the franchise but I'm just happy that he did. I would have to agree with him on the revenue issue too. I don't expect the rich to give me jack based on the fact that they have money to invest and i've squandered mine on $50 worth of boose and beef on gameday.
