The rules of the road in the NFL during the lockout prevent owners from having contact with players. But there are some exceptions.

One exception, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed today at the NFL’s spring meeting, is that he’s allowed to attend the wedding of his quarterback, Tony Romo.

I’ve gotten special permission,” Jones told ESPN. “But more than anything, [I got the] right ticket from him and his fiance√© — Romo’s wife-to-be. [It's] one of prettiest invitations I’ve ever seen. So, yes, I will be there and [I'm] proud for him. He’s got the best end of this deal.”

Romo will marry Candice Crawford on Saturday in Dallas.

    LOL Jerry Jones has been keeping tabs on the prettiness of every invitation he’s ever received. But srsly tho that’s very sweet he’ll be attending his QB’s wedding.

    “Tony Romo” and “wedding” begs for a joke about T.O. crying, I’m just not clever enough to come up with one.

    Would it be a conflict of interest if the Romo’s gift registry was at the North Park Mall?

  4. ilovefoolsball says: May 25, 2011 6:38 PM

    Is Jessica invited?

  5. goodguyjohn says: May 25, 2011 6:42 PM

    Will this be the occasion where Jones whispers in Romo’s ear “Tony – you are a nifty little October and November quarterback but I need someone who can win in December and January. You’re fired. Best wishes to you and your new wife!”

    JJ figures he might be able to cop a feel of the bride under the guise of excessive inebriation.

  7. thephantomstranger says: May 25, 2011 7:02 PM

    I’ll bet he was afraid he wouldn’t get a chance to kiss the bride.

  8. trbowman says: May 25, 2011 7:41 PM

    I give that marriage a year at most.

    This sounds like when Uncle Junior was in the can and used to comb through obituaries and say they were family just so he do he errr business.

  10. gdeli says: May 25, 2011 8:11 PM

    I am so happy he is finally marrying jessica simpson! ha

  11. aimpai says: May 25, 2011 8:16 PM

    It’s “fianc√©e”

  12. glen1904 says: May 25, 2011 8:51 PM

    Great now they can get the life size painting of Jerry for their wedding gift from him.

  13. dolfan8385 says: May 25, 2011 9:23 PM

    $5 says Romo wears a baseball hat backwards to his wedding.

  14. purpmaster says: May 25, 2011 9:38 PM

    Hey Tony. comb your hair, ya look like Spanky!

  15. theytukrjobs says: May 25, 2011 10:01 PM

    Okay Tony, here’s the new playbook. Coach wants to go more play action, so work on your roll outs. Also more deep hitch/fade combos so work on your 5 step pump and go’s. We’re going to go less over the middle and utilize the outside talent more so don’t sweat as much on those inside LB reads and work more on reading dback technique early. Let’s see, anything else on Coach’s list, oh yeah work extra, extra hard on your screen game because we’re expanding on that as well to keep the LB’s honest since we are attacking the inside less, like I mentioned. Well, that about does it don’t want to draw too much attention…er yeah congrats or whatever your first wife will always hold a special place peace gotta run. Yeah they bought that fancy invite line hook and sinker

    Is Jerry in charge of installing the seating?

  17. dave1961 says: May 25, 2011 10:55 PM

    Known as the greediest owner in the NFL… and the architect of the lockout, the NFL sure is allowing the cowboys owqner and their coaching staff contact with their players. Meanwhile other teams aren’t allowed any contact.

    I think Goodell is trying to give the under-achieving Cowboys an advantage over the rest of the league.

    Goodell talks a good game, but truthfully his words are completely hollow. This is about billionaires breaking unions and owning the court of appeals. Justice is for sale in America. Different rules for different classes of America.

    While the owners stroll out on the decks of justice on a cruise ship, the fans are locked in third class like they were in the Titanic disaster.
    The posters here all identify with billionaires that threaten to cancel games on the anniversary of 9/11. I can’t remember one story of a billionaire running into a building and saving a single soul… yet states are taking away their benefits.

    Then you have Tom Brady running to court for his collective bargaining rights, yet he’s seen sitting with Republicans who cut state worker’s collective bargaining rights. Brady is a hypocrite and doesn’t give a rat’s behind about the working class.

    Millionaire players and billionaire owners don’t care about their working class fans at all. They both think the fans are they slaves and act like they don’t care how they treat us.

    The game belongs to the fan. The owners and players are stewarts. They are just greedy millionaires and billionaires that don’t respect anyone or anything but a buck. Both sides have justices in their pockets.

    The only time these players and owners care about their fans is when they need our tax dollars for their billion dollar playhouses. Then they court us and call it our teams, so we the tax payers, flip the bill for these greedy jerks to split 9 billion dollars in profits…. Isn’t America great for the rich….

    We really need the lockout to end so we can get away from stories like this.

  19. micker716 says: May 25, 2011 11:36 PM

    Imagine how excited Jerry would be if Romo was actually any good.

    No comments are needed after that one. Classic. Just classic.

  21. georgiagirlc4 says: May 26, 2011 12:48 AM

    So much jealousy in these comments…

  22. plundergrunge says: May 26, 2011 1:51 AM

    Good for Tony.

  23. longislandcowboysfan says: May 26, 2011 2:28 AM

    LMFAO at the haters.

    u mad?

  24. 305phinphan says: May 26, 2011 2:56 AM

    Romo overbooked his wedding by one seat and will make Jerry Jones sit out side and look through the window to watch it. That will give fans justice that got hosed during the Dallas Super Bowl

  25. steelerfan9598 says: May 26, 2011 6:20 AM

    When he gets there tell him the temporary seating wasn’t approved and bring him to the basement to watch it on TV.

  26. melonnhead says: May 26, 2011 7:38 AM

    I’m surprised that dozens of PFT’s pimply-faced WOW nerd army aren’t telling us how ugly Candice Crawford is… yet.

  27. purpmaster says: May 26, 2011 7:56 AM

    Leave it to JJ to quote” he got the best END of this deal….”

  28. wakiash says: May 26, 2011 1:49 PM

    He’s already destroyed the Cowboy organization, might as well destroy a relationship, too!

  29. manofaiki says: May 26, 2011 6:07 PM

    Tony Romo has led his team to victory in the playoffs so some of you need to update your copy of his resume.

    The only downside to his getting married is that the more rabid Cowboy fans will now try to pin every loss on his wife ‘taking up to much of his time’.

    As for the haters:

    Tony Romo is

    1. Richer than you
    2. More famous than you
    3. Plays better golf than you
    4. getting more of his teammates to the team workouts than Brees and
    5. marrying a gorgeous blonde.

    I know it hurts. Tough. Get over it.
