You can't just go out and buy a team if you have limited resources. Even if you can afford it now (which realistically we couldn't anyway), you can't always in the future. And buying a team is counter to the only assets we have.
Just curious but why can't the team suddenly afford to spend now? The vast majority of their money remains untouched in the form of TV and radio contracts both of which are way up from a few years ago. This team should have no problem spending $100M this coming season if they choose to.
