Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Declares All-Out War Against NFL

By

Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has had enough.

Yes, Jones made his own questionable statement as part of the ongoing protest of the National Anthem by players, but mostly because he doesn’t like President Trump.

Still, Jones wouldn’t let his players kneel during the actual playing of the anthem, and he’s fed up with the NFL leadership for doing next to nothing to put this despicable phenomenon behind us.

Like many other owners, Jones and his Cowboys have been hit hard by the fan backlash to the disrespect shown to our flag.

According to a survey conducted by Yahoo Finance:

Nearly 62% of 9,056 respondents told us they plan to watch less pro football in response to the anthem controversy. Thirty-six percent said they plan to buy less NFL merchandise, and 32% have chosen not to attend a game they would otherwise have gone to.

That’s a LOT of lost revenue, and Jones has had enough.

In his eyes, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is responsible for having failed to quell this crybaby rebellion and return the league to its former success, when professional football was by far America’s most watched and beloved sport.

Goodell’s contract is coming up for renewal, and some in the league are determined to keep him in office.

Jones is not among them, and is in fact threatening to sue the NFL if it doesn’t ditch Goodell once and for all.

From the New York Times:

Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has escalated a feud with Goodell, threatening to sue the league and some fellow team owners over negotiations to extend Goodell’s contract, according to three people with direct knowledge of the situation.

Jones told the six owners on the league’s compensation committee last week that he had hired David Boies, the high-profile lawyer under fire in the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment case, according to the people, who declined to be speak publicly about internal league matters.
