Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban made waves when he said that he thinks the “the NFL is 10 years away from an implosion.” Cuban’s point is that their aggressiveness will lead to an over-saturation of the market, driving fans away. Cowboys vice-president Stephen Jones respectfully declined from the NFL Owner’s meetings in Orlando.
“I hope he’s wrong this time,” Jones said, via Clarence Hill of the Ft Worth Star-Telegram. “I think a lot of Mark, but in this particular case, I hope he’s in the wrong, not the right. I haven’t talked to Mark as to why. I’d certainly like to hear it because Mark is a smart guy and he understands our sports business and I do have a ton of respect for him. At some point, I would like to know what he’s seeing that we may not be seeing.”
“We certainly do a lot of work as you know before we jump on these things. Certainly I can see why he might not say that, that we’re getting too saturated. But I think we’ve done a lot of work to think that we’re not.”
