Nearly every wins when Jerry Jones and Roger Goodell are fighting

The other owners just sent a letter of censure to Jones's lawyer David Boies, accusing Jones of "conduct detrimental to the league" and stating that they have had enough of his damaging "antics" that include threatened lawsuits if he doesn't get his way, the New York Times reported Wednesday night.

The NFL will not attempt to force Jerry Jones to sell the Dallas Cowboys over his efforts to oppose the owners' pending contract extension with Commissioner Roger Goodell, according to the owner of one franchise and several others familiar with the situation.

Jones was not asked about threatening Goodell's job during his radio show on Friday on 105.3 FM, but he addressed the issues with the commissioner's contract extension.

That stance was backed up Friday by an explosive article that will appear in the December 4 issue of ESPN The Magazine, in which an angry Jones promised to make Goodell pay after learning of the suspension.

"Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding", Jones says in the video.


The letter was sent to Jones through his attorney, David Boies, on Wednesday, one day after Jones expressed publicly that he had no intention of halting his efforts to prevent National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell from receiving a contract extension.

Jones' actions are "detrimental to the league's best interests", the owners wrote in the letter. He also is seeking to tie more of Goodell's compensation to incentives based on the league's financial well-being and to involve more owners directly in the negotiations.

With that context, there is no legitimate basis for Mr. Jones to circulate to the full ownership a three-month-old document from a consultant to the Committee - a document that Mr. Jones personally knows to be an outdated, historical artifact of no relevance whatsoever in the context of these lengthy negotiations.

"I won't cast judgment, on one moment when a joke went south, to capture who this man represents in a lifetime commitment of love and compassion to all ethnicities", Sanders told the Star-Telegram. And they know I have the NFL's best interest in mind.
