Very true. Bud has shelled out dough for players (Warren Moon & Webster Slaughter come to mind). However Bud was always known for being cheap with everything else, from facilities to coaches. Bum Phillips has told a few comical stories about Bud's cheapness. That Ed Fowler book has some funny stories about Bud being cheap also.
