Last week’s announcement that Mark Cuban had become a principal owner of a new North American league for a sport called “futsal” heightened buzz about the venture. As in, “Maybe this league is going to be a bigger deal than many imagined.” Indeed, a source told The Dallas Morning News on Monday that the 16-team Professional Futsal League franchisees include “multiple” NBA owners and some of the world’s most prestigious soccer clubs.

Cuban disagrees with the notion that it is hurting the game’s entertainment value and told ESPN.com on Saturday morning that he believes fans actually feel more part of the game in hack-a-player situations, citing the example of fans getting on their feet to challenge an opposing player at the free throw line. Cuban also said hacking adds an element of intrigue. “Will they leave him in or leave him out?” Cuban said. “How do both teams feel about it? How will they foul? Is it a new creative way, or is it just chasing?”
