That's a bad analogy unless the only part of the hobby which is
interesting to you is tracking down bargains. The amount of money that it
cost me to get a machine doesn't affect the amount of enjoyment I get from
using it. I'm sure the superbowl manager doesn't think "we won on paper,
but it doesn't _really_ count because the players didn't play for free".
