Chairman & CEO of Team Bill
Here's the thing, though......Jerry wants to be commish......I'm thinking that concept is as bad or worse than Goodell.....the whole devil you know concept
At least Goodell as the skills to do the job, even If I don't like the job he has always done.....Jerry Jones is a rich prick who road the coattails of Jimmy Johnson......not sure that qualifies him to be commish
Yep. Jerry wants to pull the strings.I don’t think he wants to be the king as much as he wants to be the kingmaker. He would still effectively be in charge, but wouldn’t have to take the flak that the commissioner does. Goodell has a legitimate claim as the worst commissioner in the history of American sports. If the rumors of Jones preferring Polian for the job are true, we’d honestly be better off with Goodell.
I don't think Jerry wants to be Commissioner himself, but he sure as heck wants one of his personal puppets playing the role.Here's the thing, though......Jerry wants to be commish......I'm thinking that concept is as bad or worse than Goodell.....the whole devil you know concept
Won’t happen. If they did, they’d be able to rally more to their cause. But Jones thinks Kraft slighted him in 2010 which caused Jones to slight Kraft in 2015 which is likely causing Kraft to slight Jones in 2017. So, with that said, Goodell gets his extension and the. NFL we all grew up with continues its slow swirl right down the ol’ ****ter.
I have to respectfully disagree - at least up to this point. While there may be a bite coming, so far Jones has done nothing but bark. This is not the first time he has threatened suing the league but we still haven't seen any filings.That doesn't matter now.
Jerry is still talking a big game but unlike Kraft, he bites and doesn't just bark.
Yep. That’s why I said anything that Jones does after this needs to be subterranean. Goodell’s office botches something at least six times a day. If Jones is serious about rallying the owners he needs to his side, he needs to bide his time and wait until Goodell creates another massive screw-up for the league and pounce.I have to respectfully disagree - at least up to this point. While there may be a bite coming, so far Jones has done nothing but bark. This is not the first time he has threatened suing the league but we still haven't seen any filings.
My concern is that Jones's outsized ego is actually making Goodell a more sympathetic figure in ownership circles. Goodell may gain support from owners looking to shut Jerry up.
But Kraft also did his own lobbying. According to the ESPN the Magazine story, Kraft called Goodell about the Elliott incident, apparently urging the commissioner to make a decision after dragging out the process.
“My guy got four games for footballs,” Kraft reportedly said to Goodell, “and there’s still nothing on this?”
Jones is by that measure as well. In this pissing contest between the two (because that’s exactly what it is), Goodell wins.Dude, you don't get it.
NFL Rumors: Jerry Jones Took Shot At Robert Kraft While Waging War On Roger Goodell
Kraft is 100% complicit. He's a huge part of the problem.
