NFL team looses money

You would think that owning a Nation Football League franchise would be simple and bring you tons of money. This happened for 96.8 percent of the owners besides Detroit Lions owner William Clay Ford Sr. During the 2010 Season the Lions were the only team of the 32 NFL franchises to lose money.  Since the 2010 season went so poorly for the Lions the value of the franchise went down 3 percent despite the brand new stadium and other things. Part of the reason the Lions franchise has dropped so low is because they had a 0-16 season being the worst in NFL history. Is the operating cost worth it for a team who has done so poorly? Do you think the desire to own the team has changed for Ford Sr.?
