On Sunday night, as league owners were gathering in Orlando, FL for the annual meetings, Dallas Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban loosed some interesting thoughts on the NFL’s immediate future.
Noting the league’s meteoric growth of recent, Cuban believes the league is headed down a road that ends in an over-saturation of the market. Once that happens, he says, it will mean dire consequences for all involved--a group that involves Cubes’ friend, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.
“When pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered,” Cuban said, per the Dallas Morning News. “And they’re getting hoggy. When you try to take it too far, people turn the other way. I’m just telling you, when you got a good thing and you get greedy, it always, always, always, always, always turns against you.”
Jones responded to his pal on Monday, and he doesn’t seem to be shaking in his boots.
“I respect Mark,” Jones said. “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.”
