National Football League owners discuss 'nuclear' option to banish Jerry Jones

Jerry Jones: Objection To Goodell Deal Not About Elliott Ban

Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, has threatened to block Goodell's new contract with a lawsuit unless all owners are given a say on terms. It's absolutely true that multiple owners have become upset with the manner in which Jerry Jones has handled himself in recent months.

Goodell also reportedly requested the lifetime use of a private jet and health insurance for his family, but Ganis struck down those claims as well.

The commissioner now is embattled with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who has threatened to sue the National Football League if negotiations regarding Goodell's contract extension are finalized without approval from all National Football League team owners.

Jones, a non-voting member of the committee, is reportedly looking to sue the league if Goodell's extension is completed without final approval from the league's 32 teams.

The NFL's compensation committee, headed by the Atlanta Falcons' Arthur Blank, is considering Goodell's extension in an atmosphere of acrimony, turmoil and borderline owner revolt. "Regardless of what may have been reported, the Committee is working within the financial parameters outlined to the ownership at the May meeting".

With the week's tension in mind, media members were watching Jones and Blank closely before the game.


Blank, according to a report Sunday by Sports Illustrated writer Peter King, was "shocked" and "disappointed" by Jones' threat to sue the league, telling the Cowboys owner, "We may have differences, but this is not the way we resolve them".

"I think just since the period of time that we first addressed extending Roger, I think we've had several material adverse conditions happen", Jones said.

Goodell suspended Elliott following a year-long investigation by the league after prosecutors in OH declined to pursue the domestic violence case, citing conflicting evidence.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, Jerry Jones' son, said during a radio interview Monday that he and his father "want what's in the best interest of the league".

Some fans have said protests are disrespectful to the American flag and to the military, and have boycotted the NFL.
