Mark Cuban

Sues Unknown

Football League (UFL)

1/13/2011 1:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mark Cuban is suing the United Football League for allegedly stiffing him on a $5 million loan -- the first big sign the minor football organization you never knew a damn thing about ... might go belly up.

Cuban's HDNet filed the federal lawsuit this week ... claiming the UFL -- an upstart league of former and undrafted NFL players -- failed to repay the $5 mil it was loaned last April.

In the docs, HDNet says the league missed two deadlines -- in October and December -- to pay back the cash, plus interest.

A league rep said they don't comment on business matters.

The UFL started in 2009 and its games air on HDNet ... for now.

Mark Cuban might as well sue the doctor who sewed that dead squirrel on his bald head.

Bet it was an 'investment' and not a loan, but this Drama Queen thinks hes entitled.

Yahoo was on crack when they bought his mess (broadcast), he should thank his lucky stars each and every day.

I'm sure that 5 mill isn't really all that much to Mr. Cuban. He wipes his butt with $100 bills.....

It's sad really, there IS some good football being played by those guys who otherwise would be flipping burgers or working in an office somewhere, and the initial intent was to be much like a farm system for the NFL. Hah, Where else are you going to see Jeff Garcia, or Dante Culpepper?? What a draw...

Seriously, they have tried to take good ball to smaller cities and create a great fan experience.. I hope it lasts and gets more than 5 teams.. right now, there playoffs look like BCS junk.

Many of these guys are invited into camp and cut before even playing an NFL game. Timmy Chang for example was undrafted and has been on 3 NFL teams and has never played a down in an actual game.
