NFL prepared to fine Jerry Jones millions for conduct detrimental

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is preparing to fine Cowboys owner Jerry Jones millions of dollars for conduct detrimental to the league, Ken Belson of the New York Times reports.

Jones sought to derail Goodell’s contract negotiations with the league after the commissioner suspended Cowboys star running Ezekiel Elliott for six games.

According to the Times, Goodell was reluctant to penalize Jones to avoid the appearance that he was seeking revenge for the Cowboys owner trying to oust him as commissioner. But several owners have pushed the NFL office to fine Jones, who they believe “crossed an unspoken boundary by threatening his colleagues.”

Jones hired high-profiled attorney David Boies in November, threatening to sue the six owners on the league’s compensation committee after it became clear Goodell would get a new deal without needing the approval of the other owners.

You know Roger's in free fall when he's making people pull for Jerry Jones. The Goodell dictatorship is beyond ludicrous. But the other owners are going to get what they deserve for being ignorant enough to keep him in there.

Vince McMahon's league has more credible leadership than the NFL.

Dling exactly what owners tell him. Jerry not liking one of his stars getting suspended threw a hissy fit and cost other owners money. They want it back
