If you haven’t heard, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has found himself in the middle of a bit of drama and controversy for his drunken words to a person who was recording the entire conversation on their cell phone.
Deadspin broke the story today.
The problem is, Jerry Jones really didn’t say or do anything wrong. His remarks about Bill Parcells seem to have been made in jest and I doubt Jones was being serious about what he said. He was entertaining some idiots who planned to set him up.
Not worth a shit, but I wanted — they were on my ass so bad. J’s gotta have a yes man. So to get this fuckin’ stadium, I need to bring his ass in.
Well, Parcells did help draft one of the most dominating linebackers in the NFL, but his tenure in Dallas was lackluster. He didn’t come close to winning a Super Bowl and he was the coach during the infamous game against the Seahawks when Romo mishandled the field-goal attempt. Sure, that wasn’t Parcells’ fault, but he was the head coach.
As for Tim Tebow, he couldn’t hold Tony Romo’s jockstrap. If you are looking for a draft bust, it will be Tim Tebow. The god-preaching, makeup wearing, bible-preaching wussy isn’t going to be a star in the NFL. Mark my words.
Tony Romo is a miracle. Here is an undrafted kid from Wisconsin who is now starting for America’s Team. Have the Cowboys won a Super Bowl under his leadership? No. Maybe this is his year. The good thing is he’s not losing games.
The NFL may want to have a few choice words with Jerry because it is no secret he enjoys some stiff drinks, but they better be careful with any punishment because he does have 1st Amendment rights.
Sometimes the truth hurts.
