NFL Owners Have Discussed How To Kick Out Jerry Jones

Jerry Jones Is Scolded for 'Antics' in Letter From Fellow Owners

Jerry Jones sends letter seeking special owners' meeting to address Roger Goodell's contract

Per Ken Belson of the New York Times, NFL owners rejected Jones' request for a special meeting to discuss the Goodell situation.

Tensions remain high surrounding Jerry Jones' war against Roger Goodell and the NFL.

Jones was not asked about threatening Goodell's job during his radio show on Friday on 105.3 FM, but he addressed the issues with the commissioner's contract extension. "We urge Mr. Jones to honor the resolution that he and his fellow owners adopted and allow the Committee to continue its work, in compliance with the May 2017 Resolution and the League Constitution".

That he has threatened to sue the league and members of the compensation committee in effort to block the extension has created a firestorm of its own with some owners accusing Jones of engaging in conduct detrimental to the league, resulting in reports of him being fined, suspended or even having the Cowboys taken away from him.

Jones is referring to the way the New England Patriots - their owner in particular - fought back against the league's four-game suspension of Tom Brady following the Deflategate scandal.

The letter was sent to Jones through his attorney, David Boies, on Wednesday, one day after Jones expressed publicly that he had no intention of halting his efforts to prevent National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell from receiving a contract extension. While the league's letter reportedly doesn't make that suggestion outright, some owners have been discussing the potential there, according to the Journal.

The league and other owners say no further ratification vote of the owners is required after they voted, 32-0, in May to authorize the compensation committee to negotiate the deal with Goodell.

That language represents exactly the standard that would be needed for Jones to be booted from the league-proof that his conduct goes against the best interests of the NFL. "I love this league and I love this game". But I've been knowing some of these people for going on 30 years.
