You said, I don’t believe they are sitting on giant sums of money. That’s not the same as a pile of money? Ummm, ok.
And thank you for admitting they can spend more. That is and was my point. You are presuming I’m not talking about a ton more. I stated 80-100M. I don’t need to see the books to know they can spend that. We have seen what TV and radio contracts bring them, MASN, etc...they can spend that but they aren’t. Why? Because of rebuilding. That’s why. It’s not because they can’t, it’s because they choose not to.
I believe I said:
Nowhere did I say they don't have a pile of money. We agree that they had a high payroll at one time. But they haven't been winning for years, attendance has been decreasing and for 2018 and 2019, it has been awful. If you're suggesting - that despite declining attendance numbers and a pandemic that but a significant hinderance on what they could make this year - that this team can still have a high payroll, we just flat out disagree there.
They clearly can spend more than they are now. I will agree that they can spend more than they are now. How much that is specifically is up for debate. And neither of us really know for certain.
Ok, if you say so.
No h haven’t considered that because it makes no logical sense. You can field a better team in 2021 while still also being good long term. If you can’t, you don’t deserve to be in the business.
And besides, that doesn’t answer the question I asked. You are saying I’m assuming they aren’t trying to win in 2021. Show me an argument that suggests they are trying to win in 2021. That’s what I asked you. All you did was try to spin it into something else.
You are jumping on me for making assumptions..well, defend your side of it. What am I assuming that’s wrong? How are they trying to win in 2021?
Ok but your arguments are all over the place.
You said they don’t have a pile of money but yet they proved they could have a high payroll. That isn’t something that is disputable. They clearly can spend more than they are now.
They are choosing not to because of “rebuilding” but that’s bs at this point.
