Getting rid of Jerry Jones? Here's how National Football League could do it

Getting rid of Jerry Jones? Here's how National Football League could do it

The League's ownership has been and will continue to be fully apprised of the Committee's work, as the Committee Chairman reaffirmed on Monday.

Jones, through a letter sent by an attorney for the Cowboys, accused Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank of misleading owners about the negotiations on the extension. It was dated Wednesday, November 15.Your November letter is yet another effort by your client to disregard and deliberately interfere with the May 2017 Resolution, unanimously adopted by the owners (including your client), which expressly approved a contract extension with Commissioner Goodell and further authorized the Compensation Committee to finalize the terms of that extension. One would have to presume these details revolve around an ESPN report that Goodell wanted $49.9 million per year and lifetime use of a private jet.

Jones is seeking to at least delay completion of the contract, with Goodell's current deal in effect until 2019.

Chances are, the ongoing battle between Jones and the National Football League is far from over.

North Korea Warns 'Spiritually Instable' Trump Against Reckless Remarks
It comes after a series of missile and nuclear tests in the past few months, a sharp escalation from recent years. It was not pleasant for them, was it?' said Trump , who wore a leather bomber jacket as he addressed the troops.

"Adhering to the protocol of giving owners a 48-hour heads-up before a major disciplinary issue involving their team is announced, Goodell and Pash informed Jones that after a 13-month domestic violence inquiry, the Dallas Cowboys' star running back, Ezekiel Elliott, would face punishment - a six-game suspension", writes the tandem of ESPN reporters.

Some owners are urging league leaders to consider possible disciplinary action against Jones for conduct detrimental to the NFL, people familiar with the situation said earlier this week.

As Ken Belson reported for the New York Times, Jones received a letter from other owners calling his "antics" damaging to the NFL and "conduct detrimental to the league's best interests", a sign from other NFL owners that they will not back down to Jones' threats. "And we urge Mr. Jones to support the committee's deliberations, not attempt to sabotage them".
