Mark Cuban’s Mad at the NFL Now

I wonder if Roger Goodell can talk David Stern into letting him fine Cubes for this: “Mark Cuban is upset with the NFL – and its television partners – for scheduling Saturday’s Cowboys playoff game in direct competition with the Mavericks’ home game against Utah. The Cowboys will play Philadelphia at 7 p.m. in Arlington. The Mavericks play the Jazz at 7:30 p.m. ‘I know we’re [small potatoes] compared to the NFL, but seriously, the NFL is turning into the ugly American when it comes to sports leagues,’ Cuban said before Tuesday’s game against Detroit. ‘They don’t [care] about anybody but themselves. There’s not much I can do, obviously, in terms of the schedule.’ The Mavericks play Friday night at San Antonio, which eliminates the possibility of moving Saturday’s game up earlier in the day.”
