Mark Cuban believes Dallas Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones is right to dig in his heels against the NFL.
But the Mavericks owner also reserves the right to pass judgment later if new information comes out about Ezekiel Elliott’s domestic abuse allegations.
Speaking with Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News on Tuesday night, Cuban discussed, at length, the current trials and tribulations of the other larger-than-life owner in the DFW area.
“I respect the hell out of Jerry Jones because in football even more than basketball, when you have a premier quarterback and you have a premier running back, you got to go for it,” Cuban said before his team’s 97-91 home loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night. “Jerry, he’s not getting enough respect from the fans for the battle he’s fighting. It is a brutal battle. It’s him against the world, which he’s used to and I think he likes.

“But he has 100 percent of my respect,” Cuban continued. “What he’s doing is the right thing.”
Then, Cuban hedged on those comments in a big way.
“I don’t know the issues behind Zeke’s suspension,” Cuban said. “If there’s something that confirms that he’s a bad guy or something like that, I take everything back.”
