Cowboys owner Jones slams Lerner and the Browns ways


Wow. Sounds like from the piece below today in the Dallas Morning News that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not much of a fan of the Lerner family, basically saying they are a big reason the league isn’t making even MORE money than it already is.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and horse trainer D. Wayne Lukas are friends and kindred spirits, Lukas, the first trainer to earn more than $100 million in purses, wants to apply Jones’ bold marketing vision to the fading sport of horse racing. Like Jones, Lukas runs into obstacles presented by the fundamental structure of the sport. “I talked to Jerry Jones, and he said if the league turned him loose, he’d make so much more money because he could do all kind of innovative things,” Lukas told the Baltimore Sun. “But when he gets in the room with other owners, he has to look out for Cleveland. In horse racing, everybody looks out for their own selfish interests. We’ve got to get under one umbrella.” The Lerner family has owned the Browns franchise since it came back into the league as an expansion team in 1999. In that time, the Browns are 59-117 with one playoff game.

    I love guys like this . . . housing teams in big markets. Successful businessman, I guess, but that really doesn’t mean much. Everybody who owns an NFL franchise has to be successful as a business person, except for Modell, of course. Cleveland was around long before Dallas was even thought of. That being said, Dallas has been far more successful on the playing field than Cleveland. A lot of glitz and glamour that accompany the wealth of the area. God bless him. But, Jones could not survive in a place like Cleveland, Chicago, Pittsburgh or Detroit. These are working folks around here — and much smaller markets. It is wise to remember that our illustrious bankers were “turned loose” — and put a $12 trillion hole in the economy as a result. What would he have, NFL sanctioned whore houses?

    So, jj is complaining that lerner is looking out for his own interests…yet, in the same breath also complains that he can’t look out for his own. Does a bigger hypocrite even exist?

    Not everyone has his purse strings, so this is obsurd unless he’s willing to distribute his wealth around. Again…foolish old hypocrite that’s too naive to even see it.

      Next year, I believe, is when they play through the NFC East.
