Oh what a night for sports in this country! Have you heard this story yet? It seems Mark Cuban is mad the Cowboys are playing a playoff game this Saturday night and it conflicts with the Mavs game at the same time.
“I know we’re just little pissants compared to the NFL, but seriously, the NFL is turning into the ugly American when it comes to sports leagues,” Cuban said. “They don’t give a crap about anybody but themselves.”
He goes on to say:
Cuban had nothing but praise for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, his partner in bringing the NBA All-Star game to North Texas in February. However, Cuban lashed out at the NFL, which he said could lose the political support of other professional sports leagues if it continues to be inconsiderate with its scheduling.
“There’s a balance between all the leagues,” Cuban said. “They deal with similar issues. They deal with issues with copyright, antitrust, [Federal Communications Commission], all kinds of things. And it’s going to bite them in the ass one day.”
Cuban concluded with a jab at the NFL.
“Maybe the other leagues, when it comes to supporting them, will pull a Jim Irsay and disappear in the middle of the night,” Cuban said, referring to the Colts’ move from Baltimore to Indianapolis that was actually orchestrated by Jim Irsay’s father Bob in 1984.
Some how, I find it amazing that Mark Cuban is accusing someone else of being selfish.
