Onion Sports Network Reports: Dallas Cowboys Release Jerry Jones
According to the satirical sports website Onion Sports Network, the Dallas Cowboys have cut long time team owner Jerry Jones, for many reasons:
According to sources within the Cowboys organization, the decision to release Jones was influenced by the lack of any playoff victories in more than 12 years, the owner’s distracting sideline antics, and his selfish, “me first” attitude, which many said was having a cancerous effect on the clubhouse.
We value Jerry’s contributions to the Cowboys over the past two decades, but it has become painfully clear that we just don’t share the same priorities,” Cowboys public relations director Richard Dalrymple said. “This wasn’t an easy choice to make, but we’re confident it is a decision that can only make our team better.
Losing to our NFC East rivals the Giants in our brand-new stadium was really the last straw,” added Dalrymple, who said Jones “insisted” that the $1.2 billion facility would solve all of the team’s problems. “The Cowboys need to focus on winning, and we can’t do that with Jerry’s incessant ego-boosting publicity stunts, or this opulent sports venue that’s devoted more to himself than achieving postseason success.
