Great article!

The point on franchise valuations is a good one: even though these "businesses" may not turn massive annual profits for all of the owners (just most of them - those with winning teams and in medium to large sized markets), if the owners just hold on to the team for a few years and then sell it, they will invariably turn a profit selling the team because team valuations are constantly increasing and buyers always overpay for teams anyways due to their rarity.
