I am so tired of the owners of the Dallas sports teams. Why are they famous? I understand that they have money, and I agree that they should be a vital part of their businesses. These guys take it to a different level though. Jerry Jones appeared on Jay Leno sometime this week. Why? What has he done besides own a team? I think that most people agree that if he would step back from the team the Cowboys would start to win again. They might even make it out of the first round of the playoff.
The other owner that really bothers me is Mark Cuban of the Dallas Mavericks. From what I understand, the guy is a business genius, but his face is the face of the Mavericks. Why is it not Dirk Novitzki? He is the star player of the team, but his face is not seen as much as Cuban’s. Cuban is known for his antics during the games, and he goes through multiple stages during the 60 minute time frame. One minute he is owner, then fan, and finally he becomes the coach of the team all from his court side seat. It is really sad when the cameras are waiting for Cuban to explode after the refs make a bad call.
I am sure that the owners will never read this, but please step back from your teams. There is a point when you should let your players be the image of your team. Hopefully, Jerry and Mark will realize this, but I wouldn’t bet on it. Basketball season starts soon so I am sure that my irritation level is going to rise!
