Sheesh. I don’t know whether to be mad or ecstatic at good ole Jerry. I’m going to chose happy, and cheer for Jerry because I think we can all agree Goodell deserves to, and should be canned. Bob Kraft just wants to play football, and stay out of media glam. That’s the Patriot way, it always has been – it always will be. As far as the insult, not in good taste, but if someone is going after Goodell, It’s not going to ruffle my feathers much. Jerry’s fire and ego is for the good of the herd.
Jerry on the other hand, he absolutely loves the attention, the drama, and being the center of attention in Dallas. So, it’s only in his nature to get after Goodell as hard as possible after he screwed the Cowboys over – and I will certainly hope it somehow works (I doubt it will).
The NFL is basically accusing Jones of “damaging the league” by going after Goodell. Of course, we all can expect that type of accusation being thrown out there when the league is ran by a dictator. The owners are all against Jerry, simply because Goodell has been making owners stupid cash.
The owners and Goodell will probably win though. because the owners are spineless and don’t mind taking a whip if the cash is flowing. It looks like it’s everyone against Jerry, and that’s just sad.
The NFL’s strong language implies it may consider punishing Jones for his actions under Section 8.13 of Article VIII of the NFL’s Constitution & Bylaws, a possibility multiple owners have already discussed, Pro Football Talk previously reported.
Section 8.13, titled “Disciplinary Power of Commissioner”, gives Goodell the authorization to discipline an owner if he or she “has either violated the Constitution and Bylaws of the League or has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football.”
I find it ironic that the owners and Goodell think he’s damaging the league when the Cowboys are the clear cut most valuable franchise in the NFL and their valuation is up 14% from last year:
The Dallas Cowboys are the most valuable National Football League team for an 11th consecutive year, valued at nearly twice the league average, according to the annual list published by business magazine Forbes on Monday.
The Cowboys, who have reached the playoffs only nine times since winning their last Super Bowl in 1995, are worth $4.8 billion, up 14 percent rise from last year, Forbes said.
Reigning Super Bowl champions New England Patriots ($3.7 billion) were joined by New York Giants ($3.3 billion), Washington Redskins ($3.1 billion) and San Francisco 49ers ($3.05 billion) in the top five.
Goodell is a hack. The owners are spinless. Welcome to the modern day NFL. Go Jerry Jones.
