    This may have been a requote of a requote.

    Back in the 70's or earlier, I think a player said this, but may not have been the first Cowboy to say this. And he was actually quoting Winston Churchill.

    Names?

    Money is like manure. If you spread it around it does a lot of good. But if you pile it up in one place it stinks like hell.

    ^ Google agrees with you - Clint Murchison said it.

    What I'm hoping to find out about 40 years later (yes, that's a l-o-n-g time) is apparently one of the players requoted that and hoping to identify who it might be.

    It was Clint Murchison Sr. He said this to both of his surviving sons, Clint Jr. and John Dabney when he set them up with their seed money for Murchison Brothers.
