why didn't BeIn just buy Gol tv outright ??

Why would you buy a channel that had squat on it other than the broadcasting rights you just took away from them? As far as I remember, GOLTV's only promising content (in my opinion anyway) was La Liga..

The existing carriage agreements have to have some value. I would hazard a guess that buying out Gol wouldn't be an especially expensive proposition.

I dunno about that, from what I remember they had some games from Brazil, maybe El Salvador or Ecuador... probably not worth the hassel or pennies.... Nothing against those league's, just not very attractive.
