Crotchety NFL owner Jerry Jones is pissing off everyone in the league. He’s declared open war against commissioner Roger Goodell; he pit himself against players who participated in the national anthem protests; he irritated the other team owners.
If that wasn’t bad enough, he’s now being called a racist. Video has emerged of Jones making a racist joke to a white fan who asked him to record a victory message to his fiancee.
“’Hey Jenifer, congratulations on the wedding… now, you know he’s with a black girl tonight don’t you?” Jones laughed.
Jones issued a public apology within hours of the video’s release. “It’s not who I am, and I’m sorry,” Jones said.
The rest of the league wishes that Jones would give his team a new owner.
“On Thursday, other NFL owners informed Jones via letter that he is engaging in ‘conduct detrimental to the league’s best interests,’” the Daily Mail reports.
“The letter was sent to Jones through his attorney, David Boies… The letter accuses Jones of sabotaging the negotiations in the latest round of the escalating feud between Jones and Goodell. Jones is suspected of sharing outdated documents about negotiations with Goodell to other owners.”
Jones is determined to beat Goodell. He wants him out of the NFL, and he doesn’t care what he has to do to accomplish that goal. The other owners don’t support him.
Goodell’s contract expires in 2018. Jones, 75, has threatened to sue the league if the commissioner receives an extension.
