Jerry Jones wins another one

In addition to the Sports Business Award presented to Cowboys Stadium as Sports Facility of the Year, owner Jerry Jones has been named Sports Executive of the Year.

The other finalists were NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke, and CBS Sports president Sean McManus.  The award was presented by last year’s winner, NBC Universal Sports & Olympics Chairman Dick Ebersol.

Jones also was part of a quartet that accepted the NFL’s award for Sports League of the Year, along with Goodell, Saints owner/executive V.P. Rita Benson LeBlanc, and Leiweke.

Also, Super Bowl XLIV was named the Sports Event of the Year.

Finally, the Sports Team of the Year is the Seattle Sounders.  Now, please excuse me while I type into Google the phrase “Seattle Sounders.”

  1. And the “PFT Commenter of the Year goes to…Slow Joe!”
    Thank you, thank you…I–I just have so many people to thank. Mike Florio, Gregg Rosenthal, Michael Smith, I obviously couldn’t have done it without your writing! Thanks a million times. Also, all the other commenters on this blog, I would have been lost without your idiocy to make fun of. Thank you SO much!
    I’d also like to thank my wife, my parents, my girlfriend…

  2. He gets my vote for biggest douchebag owner.
    Thanks in advance for the 2011 lockout asshole.

  3. I guess you win that by having a faulty building you negligently ignored collapse and maim a bunch of your employees. Then you trade 5 draft picks for a guy who runs like a duck. After that, you call a former colleague an asshole in a drunken stupor. You also put stripper poles and cages up in a family friendly stadium. That’s how you win it. That’s how.

  4. executive of the year and soon to be SB champion MTHR’S. HOW BOUT THOSE COWBOYS!!!

  5. I’m from Boston and a Patriots fan my entire life. Although I appreciate Robert Kraft as an owner, there is only one owner who always projects confidence, intelligence and a well thought-out sense of “I will do anything to win”- that man is Jerry Jones.
    Cowboy fans you’re lucky to have a guy like this.

  6. You’re excused to check on the Sounders. While the entire world outside the U.S. borders try to figure out why Americans play “football” with a ball that isn’t round.

  7. Another Ed Block courage type award? I was hoping the news had something to do with his plastic surgeon.
    And no Bossman – you’re not a Patriots fan, you’re not fooling anyone.

  8. Lots of awards for Jones. They must think he is going to die soon.
    Watch out for the “lifetime acheivment” stuff, Jerry, you know the end is near when that starts coming down.

  9. “Watch out for the “lifetime acheivment” stuff, Jerry, you know the end is near when that starts coming down.”
    Your reading comprehension skills suck.
    “In addition to the Sports Business Award presented to Cowboys Stadium as Sports Facility of the Year, owner Jerry Jones has been named Sports Executive of the Year.”

  10. Uuuuh…Vox…I think it said “when that comes down”.
    Since we’re on the subject of reading and comprehension.

  11. And where is the Award for Worst Plastic Surgery by an NFL owner. Shit can he even smile anymore?

  12. Jerry Jones alwys struck me as a guy who should be running a rigged casino and bordello in Vegas. All I’m saying is that if you shake hands with the guy, you better count your fingers before you walk away.

  13. Vox you obnoxious inbred POS. Try getting a life and stop trying to live vicariously though the Cowpukes.

  14. To all Cowboy haters, Lil Dani Snyder, Jeffri Lurie, and whoever owns the gints, HAHAHAHAHA!!!! Eat you’re freakin hearts out as the losers you ALL are and will always be. Exectuive of the year, Facility of the Year, and soon to be six time and seven time World Champions. Did you hear that Rapistburger?

  15. Jerry Jones is amazing. If he ever finds the next Jimmy Johnson to add to his staff , he will win more super bowls. Jimmy Jones, by himself, will make the playoffs

  16. let me know when he wins something that matters. we’ll start with more than one playoff game and work our way up.

  17. What?!! Wasn’t Ralph Wilson EVEN in contention? … oh well, probably not….too busy wiping the droop off his “Hang-Ups”.

  18. Haters would never admit it and plenty of people in the media seem to have some axe to grind with the guy but I think there is very little doubt that Jerry Jones is the best owner in sports.
    OK, Jones’ track record as the GM of the Cowboys is littered with mistakes (but again, also many masterstrokes for which the credit tends to go to others) but as an owner he’s outstanding.

  19. so apparentrly if rich owners want to be exec of the year, they need to get plastered in public and go on rants about former employees. what a standard

  20. efffff the seattle sounders. shouldn’t team of the year go to uconn’s women hoopsters? two years in a row undefeated is a little impressive if you ask me.

  21. Jerry Jones is a business man. He works hard at keeping his businesses in the black. As a GM sometimes his decisions are questionable. This award is all about making money and a name for his franchise.
    PT Barnum at his best because this is sports entertainment.

  22. @kornonthekolb
    As to the collapse of the practice facility; I guess that’s what happens when you hire a company from Pennsylvania to build something.

  23. A meaningless award, notice how Jerry never wins GM of the year, that would require more than a single playoff win every decade.

  24. “A meaningless award, notice how Jerry never wins GM of the year”
    Sports Executive of the Year is to GM of the year like winning the Super Bowl is to winning a preseason game.
    “that would require more than a single playoff win every decade. ”
    Jerry Jones’ team has won more than one playoff team each decade. Hell, he’s got more than one playoff win over the Packers for every decade he’s owned the Cowboys and all were double digit wins.

  25. I like Jerry. The guy’s good for the NFL. And a guy who’ll go out and tie one on with a couple yahoos he doesn’t even know and talk shit about the Tuna. Gotta love that.
    I have no doubt he wants to win worse than anything. But his problem is he is simply not a GM. He likes to think he is, but he’s not. He’s followed the same formula twice. Hires a brilliant football guy, gets the team loaded with talent, then gets rid of them and takes over himself. He did it with Jones. Then ran the team into the ground, then hired Parcells. Team is loaded again, but he’ll not get them over the hump and they’ll start to fade again. Two years from now he’ll hire another great football guy. Maybe Cowher, something like that. Build them up, then…….

  26. I’m actually a Sounder Season Ticket Holder – I think you’d enjoy the games, Mike.
    Not going to lie, it’s more exciting than football, when watching live. No constant stoppages for commercials, no stoppages for replay, no timeouts. just 45 minutes of straight play, SHORT halftime, and another 45 minutes of straight play. Going to Qwest Field for the Sounders takes 3 hours, in and out. A football game takes all day there. Also consider that soccer supporters (“ultras”) tend to be rowdy and sing and chant the ENTIRE GAME… makes for a much better atmosphere, flag-waving and all. Give it a try, you have a new team in the Union in Philly, you might enjoy it!
    and the fact that Tod Leiweke was nominated for that other award just shows how pointless it is. He was horrible.

  27. The Seattle Sounders average attendance around 36k per home game. That rivals the Jacksonville Jaguars, doesn’t it? 🙂
    Great experience.

    George Carlin dies and this idiot is still alive? Carlin has done more for America then old Leatherface. I guess life just isn’t fair.

  29. @overkil2 Carlin died at the age of 71. Jones is 67. He was 65 when Carlin died. Why even bring in Carlin to the discussion, completely different people doing completely different things.
