No one absorbs more shots from the media than the owner of the Dallas Cowboys . “You can hit Jerry right upside the head. He’ll just bounce back up with a grin on his face and keep That forced Jones to go on the record himself. In the next morning’s paper, the reporters had their exclusive.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was in Atlanta with his team on Sunday. Joining him at the new stadium in Atlanta was Falcons owner Arthur Blank.

The two obviously have seen drama overtake their relationship, especially after Jones himself went with a potential nuclear option. That included Jones hiring world-renowned lawyer David Boies to help block an extension for NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell (more on that here).

Now comes this report from Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio suggesting that multiple NFL owners have discussed the possibility of forcing Jones out from his current position as Cowboys owner.

“They could, in theory, attempt to trigger forfeiture of the Dallas franchise,” Florio reported. “A league source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that multiple owners already have been discussing the possibility, which flows from Article VIII of the NFL’s Constitution & Bylaws.”

Jerry Jones says he won't sue over Roger Goodell's contract, but fight isn't over

  Jerry Jones says he won't sue over Roger Goodell's contract, but fight isn't over Jones says his fight isn't about replacing Goodell but rather demanding "accountability."“I want accountability,” Jones told USA TODAY Sports on Tuesday.

Published on October 9, 2017 by James Turrell. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has been slapped awake by free-market forces . New data also showed that viewership for NFL games has plunged as fans boycotted the league in droves.

But there seems to be no negativity between Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones . You can say what you want, but NO owner has more clout in the NFL than JJ. “But but what about the Mara’s or the Rooney’s?”

The action would be under the guise of Goodell himself concluding that Jones “has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football.” Under the current CBA, this is well within Goodell’s power.

It’s not yet known just how viable this option might be. But at the very least, it’s something owners themselves are discussing. That qualifies as some rather huge news around the NFL.

NFL owners could change anthem policy next season if protests continue .
Enduring intense criticism by President Trump and some fans over players' protests, the league could revert to a prior policy of playing the anthem while teams remain in the locker room.“I think that if players are still kneeling at the end of the year, then it could very well happen,” said one person familiar with the owners’ deliberations on anthem-related issues.
