Jerry Jones Says Revenue Sharing Is ‘On It’s Way Out’

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones offered his perspective on the Vikings need for a new stadium. “Right now, we are subsidizing this market,” Jones said of NFL owners. “It’s unthinkable to think that you’ve got the market you got here – 3.5 million people – and have teams like Kansas City and Green Bay subsidizing the market. That will stop. That’s going to stop. That’s on its way out.”

Jones was referring to revenue sharing, which may end after the current Collective Bargaining Agreement expires next year. Jones challenged leaders in Minnesota to step up and help owners Zygi and Mark Wilf get a new stadium to replace the Metrodome. “It’s going to take leadership,” Jones said. “It can’t happen unless you’ve got real public leaders. They really do have to accept and recognize or educate their constituents on just how important it is to the growth of Minnesota.”
