Mark Cuban always speaks his mind, especially when it comes to the NFL.

The Dallas Mavericks outspoken owner went on ESPN and critiqued the NFL’s business model, mainly the Oakland Raiders’ move to Las Vegas, saying it will be a bad move for the league.

“Why? There’s just no good reason,” Cuban said, as transcribed by ProFootballTalk’s Michael David Smith. “It’s no disrespect to Las Vegas, it’s a great city and it’s vibrant. But they’re going to a smaller market, it’s transient, and it’s just another example of chasing every last dollar, and that tends to backfire.”

Cuban also famously said the NFL “would go bankrupt in 10 years,” back in 2014.

This, of course, isn’t just a vendetta against the NFL, as Cuban also was one of two NBA owners to vote against the Seattle Supersonics moving to Oklahoma City in 2008.

“It had nothing to do with Oklahoma City, Tulsa or the area here,” Cuban said in 2009, per NewsOK.com’s Darnell Mayberry. “It’s a great area. It wasn’t a reflection of what I thought of the area here. It’s just size.

“In a business where 100,000 viewers can make a difference between your television partners having great ratings or not having great ratings, losing a team in a larger market to me is a challenge. That’s really what it came down to.”

Only time will tell if Cuban is right, but unless the Raiders’ new stadium in Las Vegas is empty, we think the NFL will be just fine.

Who in Republican Party will stand up to Donald Trump?

Friday, Dec. 23, 2016 | 1 a.m.

President-elect Donald Trump’s victory tour was more than just an opportunity to strut and preen around the country like a peacock with a comb-over. It was a warning to Republican leaders in Congress that Trump intends to be in charge — and that there will be consequences if the party establishment does not fall in line.

Court: Too Late for Da to Reinstate Charges in Heidi Fleiss Marijuana Case

Court: Too Late for Da to Reinstate Charges in Heidi Fleiss Marijuana Case

Friday, Dec. 16, 2016 | 12:26 p.m.

CARSON CITY — Heidi Lynn Fleiss, the former so-called Hollywood madam, has beaten allegations that she grew hundreds of marijuana plants at her home.

The Nevada Supreme Court on Thursday issued an order saying the Nye County District Attorney’s Office failed to timely file documents in its appeal to reinstate charges against Fleiss.

Fleiss owns a home on a 10-acre site in Pahrump. The ruling by the Supreme Court upholds the decision by District Court Judge Kimberly Wanker, who ruled sheriff’s deputies failed to get a search warrant before entering Fleiss’ property, where they found more than 300 marijuana plants at the rear of the property and in another building.
