Awful idea. People are always doing shit on Friday nights. They don't wanna stay home and watch not the best-of-the-best players. I agree that Cuban owning the Rangers would be pretty sweet. Maybe he could help them out as much as he did with the Mavs. The baseball scene really needs to pick up in Texas.
The XFL failed because Vince was running it as a 'drama' football league. The concept is sound though, people would watch more football if it was out there, at least if its was comparable in talent and rules.
It needs to be in the Fall if he does it. Spring time football makes no sense, but I think the Friday night will hurt, kind of like doing it on Saturday, I'd still watch NCAA, it's tradition.

I'm sure Mark is just bored right now. If I was a self-made billionaire, I could give a fuck less what anybody thought of me and what I did. Cuban is going to do whatever he wants to do because he can!
