This Roger Goodell-Jerry Jones battle has been a weird story but fascinating one at the same time. Up until this point, nothing has actually happened, despite all of us talking about it. Every day it seems like a new report comes out about how angry Jerry is and how he’s ready to sue the league if Goodell gets an extension, meanwhile, the rest of the owners are ready to sign the deal and get it done so everybody can continue to rake in cash. Yesterday, he called for a special owners meeting that was immediately denied, but then set for a later date on Dec. 13th, where they can discuss the extension.
But now we’re finally starting to get some juice to this story after the ESPN report that dropped this morning. We’ve known that Jerry is pissed, but apparently this man is ready to go nuclear. This is from a call in August with Goodell after Zeke was originally suspended.
Finally, according to sources with direct knowledge of the call, Jones broke the silence. He aimed his words not only at Goodell’s decision but also at his role as judge, jury and executioner in the case.
“I’m gonna come after you with everything I have,” Jones said. Then he mentioned Deflategate. “If you think Bob Kraft came after you hard, Bob Kraft is a p—y compared to what I’m going to do.”
And now we’ve officially entered WWE status. This is a professional wrestling storyline, except it’s real. Jerry is ready to do anything to get his way, he’s calling Bob Kraft a pussy, all while the 31 other owners are looking into removing Jerry as the owner of the Cowboys. And at the same time all of that is going down, the real villain in all of this, Goodell, is staring a $50 million/year extension in the face.
I don’t know what Jerry is planning to do, but I can’t wait to find out. Shit’s about to get wild.
