Jerry Jones is a strange, but insanely wealthy man.
About a decade ago, the National Football League had a 4-month lockout and the players and owners eventually reached an agreement and the season took place as scheduled.
However, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had a strange quote during that time period that is mentioned in a new ESPN story about DeMaurice Smith.
“However, in the view of most owners, the league was still handing the players too large a slice of the pie. “It was a very generous deal, which the owners didn’t love,” The player representatives rejected it out of hand, with Smith in agreement, ensuring a lockout. “De wanted a percentage of the real pie, not a bigger percentage after the owners ate all they could,” a union official says.
Shortly afterward, owners went upstairs to join a group of team and league executives, who asked what had just happened. It would turn out the deal that the union turned down would have been roughly $1 billion better for the players than the deal they would cut months later, sources say.
Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys took the floor: “Look, my daddy grew up on a farm in southwest Missouri. Every so often in the spring, the wind would come from a different part of the country, and the moon would set a different way, and the owls would start f—-ing the chickens.”
Nobody knew where he was going with this story.
“The owls are f—ing the chickens,” Jones continued. “It makes no sense that they turned this down, but it’s a great thing for us.”
This is what happens to a man who hasn’t seen his team win a Super Bowl since the mid-90’s.
One only knows what he is saying to Dak Prescott and his agent behind closed doors as to why they refuse to give them the deal he wants. Is it possible the owls f–ked the contract?
