I would open control of the boys to crowdsource so the fans could literally
be a group mind for the team,  the QB, the ball carrier,  whatever.

Variations could be our human teams against each other,  Us vs Ai, Us & our
Ai vs Them & their Ai, and our Ai vs their Ai.

Do we devote all our attention to playing or best game or reserve some
players for griefing the systems of their bots? Do we further devote human
operators to countermeasures for their griefers?  Whatever tools for
real-time massively multiplayer zero-sum games we develop in our games are
immediately useful "irl" (and vice versa)

Now for the real important consideration: from where does the money come
and to where does it go?
