why would I begin with something we talked about just a few moments ago on television and and that is the question of the penalties at the National Football League made it out to the New England Patriots you own a sports team that you are no stranger to being find it’s a habit it’s a habit of the league handle the matter of the deflated footballs and do you think that think that the punishment fit whatever crimes there were first the commissioner of any professional sports League works for the owners so he doesn’t work in a vacuum and so I think what the punishment was would really reflected what the general ownership wanted that that’s just my guess to me as an owner the more interesting part was mowing in terms of the actual punishment I don’t give a shit right at the NFL and so I don’t know if it’s too much or too little you know I’m a Cowboys and Steelers fan Patriots play the Cowboys week 4 so it was just long enough as an owner I could see some of the new ones things that happened when Robert Kraft the owner as Tom did you do it he was out of course I didn’t do it why would I ever do anything like that at all because that’s almost like a parent-child relationship in some respects very prano and I think mr. crab probably was completely surprised by everything that he read which probably is the underpinning of why he pulled away from it today from the apiece I don’t do feel yeah he’s decided not to appeal is his sanction mean with Tom Brady going to say that’s going to believe them and you know then you find out more and he pulls you feel Taco Bell Road and that’s what turned that franchise around does a business need a business makeover looks different than any other business from the season ticket renewal for a 93% the highest ever even higher after we want to Championship you know and we continue to innovate I’m a big believer that you read on your business everyday we can’t always control the wins or losses but we can’t control the effort that goes into make it entertaining Sports is not like any other business when you know when you walk into an arena if we’re doing a good job if I’m doing a good job you feel the energy you feel the electricity you can’t replicate that sitting in front of the TV now if you’re asking do we need to add different players to do anything up there there’s no template for winning the championship it’s not an easy business there there’s locking Baldor skill involved and there’s just no easy way to say oh yeah we’re just do a makeover and will be in the finals next year just doesn’t work that way it’s a good business if not a great business in terms of financials but it’s a good business in terms of impact on the community you know. you stunned when the Clippers went for 2 billion doll because they were going to be in a position where there a tenant in there Arena so they can build a new Arena the TV deals coming up on Sports is one of the remaining your destination viewing shows on television so it didn’t send me at all I think people fail to realize that you know when is the most as a 700 billion dollar market cap and there’s never been a parade in Cupertino to celebrate it you know all the jobs everything they create globally but when you win at 18 Windsor parade in a Blackhawks are the Blackhawks when is there going to be a parade in Chicago the city would have got nuts with which you would measure other businesses Zoo Cash Ball in owning an NBA franchise isn’t it’s good but not great but make it you make it at the exit point do you think through your entire life I hope so I hope and longer than that right I hope I’m a holograph coming back and tell him what to do it like a business do you run it like a business but when you in a traditional business when you make a decision there’s one set of factors but in this end of the professional sports business there’s a different set of factors you know when I’m running any one of my companies when the Shark Tank the Mark Cuban on Shark Tank I’m not getting invited to go to hospital to spend time with kids with cancer that the Dallas Mavericks Mark Cuban are players we’re going to hospitals were doing community events you know it is heartbreaking of times I get asked you know can we get a Mavs Jersey this was his favorite player can you sign it because my front my son or my daughter has cancer and or they just died and they want to be buried and you know Dierks uniform that doesn’t happen in a regular business in that connection doesn’t happen anywhere else and so there there’s a special on you and you have to treat it I mean I might be response Ford but you all of North Texas owns the Mavericks
