Mark Cuban says he couldn’t afford to buy Cowboys

Dallas loves Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. While local fans are certainly pleased with the way things turned out following the sale of the Texas Rangers, a lot of fans wanted to see Cuban buy the team.

Dallas is still a football town, and while some would like to see him buy the Cowboys from Jerry Jones who is both loved and hated, Cuban doesn’t think he can afford them.

“I think football teams have gotten so expensive that it would take a whole consortium, you’d have to put together a whole fund in order to buy them and that wouldn’t be any fun,” Cuban said Tuesday on The Ben and Skin Show on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM], via the Dallas Morning News. “It wouldn’t be any fun because it wouldn’t be my money, it wouldn’t be my team. It would have to be purely a business. That makes it a lot tougher.”

For those hoping Cuban could at least give Jones some advice, he won’t do that either.

“I don’t give other owners advice,” Cuban said. “Just like if he started telling me, ‘Mark, what are you doing with that general manager?’ or ‘Trade Dirk (Nowitzki), break this team up.’ No, I wouldn’t like that, so I don’t give advice to other owners.”

    Cuban doesn’t appear to me to be the advice-taking kind of guy. I know for sure Jones isn’t.
