Cowboys' Jerry Jones to Mark Cuban: ‘I know more about pigs than Mark does’


Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had some interesting comments about the NFL expanding into other nights, saying over-saturation of the market could backfire.

“I think the NFL is 10 years away from an implosion,” Cuban said, via Tim McMahon of ESPNDallas.com. “I’m just telling you, pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. And they’re getting hoggy. Just watch. Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered. When you try to take it too far, people turn the other way.

“I’m just telling you, when you’ve got a good thing and you get greedy, it always, always, always, always, always turns on you. That’s rule number one of business.”

Well Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones responded in typical Jones fashion.

“I respect Mark,’’ Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “But with all due respect, I know more about pigs than Mark does.

“I was taught as a Razorback to be lean and mean, not a little fat pig.’’

Jones continued to say that the NFL has done their due diligence.

“We’re not just out here putting our finger up in the breeze,’’ Jones said. “This is based on the kind of interest we have.

“Thursday night has not in any way impacted Monday or Sunday night or impacted Sunday afternoon. As a matter of fact, we think it has enhanced the interest.’’

    Mark Cuban clearly has the right of it. If you ask any fan, corporate NFL seems to get more out of touch with its fan base every year. In this particular case, how many hours a week do they think we can spend watching football?
