Cowboys Say Story About Jerry Jones’ Comments At CBA Talks Were Overblown

A recent article by SI.com made it appear Jerry Jones played a significant role in getting the NFL players to move toward decertification. According to the team he owns, that is not true. On Wednesday, Dallas Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple told this to The Dallas Morning News: “A lot of people were reading into that story that Jerry walked out of the room, and that simply wasn’t the case. He never left the room, and he wasn’t trying to orchestrate anything. I guess the story was that Jerry Jones can become animated when trying to make a point. That’s not news to anyone around here.”

According to SI.com, Jones addressed players on March 2 and provided an interesting message. Jones began his speech by trying to lighten the mood with a description of his upbringing and the business knowledge that landed him ownership of the Cowboys in February 1989 but Jones wasn’t friendly for long. “I don’t think we’ve got your attention,” Jones said to the players, several of whom recounted the incident to SI. “You clearly don’t understand what we’re saying, and we’re not hearing what you’re saying. So I guess we’re going to have to show you to get your attention.”

    Yeah well, we all know how astute a GM Jerral don’t we? What lame brain in his right, lame brained mind would let Jerral speak for them. I mean based on his winning record after firing Jimmy Johnson. The lock out isn’t a surprise at all.

    Te only thing overblown here is Jerral’s ability in making reasonably valid good faith bargaining proposals.
