Mark Cuban defends disastrous Super Bowl call

BY foxsports • February 5, 2015

The Seattle Seahawks took a lot of heat for how they lost the Super Bowl, throwing on 2nd and Goal at the one-yard line. Why? Marshawn Lynch, an indestructable man-bear, was standing in the backfield.

But Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban doesn't see anything wrong with Seattle's decision. According to ESPN's Tim MacMahon, Cuban went out of his way to defend Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll for defying convention and doing what he believed was right.

Those people that said, ‘Oh, it’s the worst call ever,’ they’re idiots. Never take advice from someone who doesn’t have to live with the consequences. So what I say is worth what it’s worth, but they’ve never been in a situation where you’ve got to make a call where everything, literally everything, is on the line. If you’re afraid to go with what’s gotten you there, you’re not long for this league.

In some ways Cuban makes a good point. That being said, Seattle probably should've given Lynch the ball.
