Report: Jerry Jones locked out of locker room after game

Jerry Jones AP

Jerry Jones told Bob Costas over the weekend that Jones the owner would have fired Jones the G.M. by now.  After Sunday night’s loss to the Falcons, the Cowboys may have tried to fire both guys.

According to Matt Barrie of NBC 5 in Dallas, “Jerry Jones just pounded [the] locker room door because no one would let him in.  It’s the angriest I’ve seen him all year.”

Like him or not, the guy owns the team.  He has every right to be in the locker room after the game.  So we can understand why he’s mad.

Jones should be more upset about the team’s performance.  Since looking like a Super Bowl contender on the first night of the season, the Cowboys have won two and lost five.

    A move like that to a man as ignorant as Jerry Jones is pretty stupid. Jason Garrett isn’t helping his chances to stick around pulling this kind of sh!+

  7. dcowboy4life says: Nov 5, 2012 7:22 AM

    LOL Maybe they didn’t wanna hear his mouth….the whole team looked so dissappointed and frustrated.

    Not, good. He has never been told no in his life. “And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison me. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.”

    Time for an overhaul. Goodbye Romo, goodbye Garrett. Draft Landry Jones and give Bill Cowher a blank check.

  18. cardmagnet says: Nov 5, 2012 7:29 AM

    Lock him out of the front office, too.

  19. yooperman says: Nov 5, 2012 7:29 AM

    Last night Rogers was asked on 60 Minutes how he like working for 300,000 owners. He answered it was better that than an owner with lots of money who knew nothing about football. I bet Dallas fans wish they could vote for a board of directors, who pick the CEO, who then hired the GM and Coaches.

    They should lock him out of the draft.

    Jones should be locked out of football.

    He just can’t stop being the GM even though he doesn’t know what he is doing.

  26. steelerssmack4u says: Nov 5, 2012 7:32 AM

    The EGO MANIAC cannot keep his name out of the headlines. Before & after the game, the headlines are about Jerry. Best train wreck in the NFL. If I had to pick one word to describe Mr Jones I would say the man is a FOOL!!!!!!!!!

    Jerry Jones the barefoot hillbilly came to Dallas just looking for some food to keep his family fed and ended up doing Dallas

    Who builds a billion dollar stadium and owns the team, but does not have a key to the locker room?

    HaHaHa…… hahahahahah……!

  32. kellij666 says: Nov 5, 2012 7:38 AM

    it’s about time!!!!! i would have locked him out a long time ago. what a pompus blowhard he is. if he was smart, he’d hire people who know how to run a team to do that job because he has proven he can’t.

  33. inthearex says: Nov 5, 2012 7:39 AM

    Bwahaha!!! Anyone catch Aaron Rodgers on 60 minutes last night? He had a nice little backhand slap for jones. He was asked if it would be better if the packers had an actual owner like Jerry jones… His response.. No. Why would I want a guy with a ton of money who has no idea about football telling me what to do.

  34. Giantspunk213 says: Nov 5, 2012 7:39 AM

    If Jason Garrett wasn’t on the hot seat before, he surely is now!

  36. GoHawks.info says: Nov 5, 2012 7:42 AM

    I think Jerry’s “football cap” is two sizes too small. Here’s a tip, Jerry. You don’t have to pretend you are a GM when you own the team. Hire someone ore in touch with building a winner. You only luck into a team-building trade once in a generation.

  37. bronco1991 says: Nov 5, 2012 7:42 AM

  50. grogansheroes says: Nov 5, 2012 8:04 AM

    When Kraft bought the Patriots, he inherited a great coach. But he didn’t know much about running an NFL team. Parcells did, and didn’t like Kraft not letting him “shop for the groceries”. After the Pete Carroll error, Kraft learned his lesson. One that Jerry Jones has failed to learn.

  53. alewatcher says: Nov 5, 2012 8:08 AM

    This is awesome. I bet the last thing the team wanted to hear last night was JJ running his mouth. It will be interesting to see the fallout from this. (I’m getting my popcorn ready.)

    Hey Jerry – you built this mess. Time to acknowledge you’re in over your head and get a real GM and HC.

    Oh yeah, and actually let them run the team, since you obviously are incapable of doing so.

  54. golforepar says: Nov 5, 2012 8:11 AM

    Jones buy’s his way into and now wonders why people question him about his football knowledge? Go back to your suite!

    “Like him or not, the guy owns the team. He has every right to be in the locker room after the game. So we can understand why he’s mad.”

    ===================

    I beg to differ Mike. The team didn’t want to see his wrinkly butt and they did something about it. If Jerruh wants to be in the locker room, he needs to hire someone to let him in when that underachieving team’s season goes up in smoke.

    Can everyone acknowledge the reality that Jerruh is a HORRIBLE owner who simply had the good fortune of hiring Jimmy Johnson when he first bought the team? If Jerruh had not run off JJ, that team would have won four or five Super Bowls in a row.

  58. jazz321 says: Nov 5, 2012 8:19 AM

    Sean Payton would not have locked him out.

  59. garyman1 says: Nov 5, 2012 8:21 AM

    It got a little out of hand when Jones put on a fake mustache and talked with an accent to try to get in there.

  74. rtant2013 says: Nov 5, 2012 8:54 AM

    I’m a Skins fan so I hate the Cowboys, but that’s kind of low. He is the owner, and he did build that ridiculous stadium for you bums to play in. Plus I think Jerry Jones is the last guy I would embarrass like that. Somebody is going to pay for it, somebody is losing their job.

  75. luckyarmpit says: Nov 5, 2012 8:55 AM

    I understand that the guy owns the team and he can do as he pleases. However, the team probably has had enough of his meddling and I don’t blame them for not letting him in. Do you? It might take something like this to make Jones realize that they are not going to win games until he takes his nose out of things he knows nothing about.

    Just because you’re rich enough to buy a football team doesn’t mean you’re smart enough to run a football team.

    Can’t imagine a scenario in which Jason Garrett would like to stick around in Dallas and deal with the same issues year in and year out. Good ploy to get the boot, pick up a coordinator job elsewhere and work his way back up in a respectable organization.

    As a life long cowboy fan I find this great. I know Jerry isn’t the whole problem but to lock him out shows guts. Only problem I have with it is Garrett should have been locked out as well

  80. diamondmo33 says: Nov 5, 2012 9:07 AM

    I don’t know the situation that led to Jimmy Johnson leaving the cowboys,
    But I think Jerry should try and get him back.

    Nothing to see here! Dallas lost to a better team. Nothing to be ashamed about. They didnt give anything away. They competed, and learned first hand that ‘Speed Kills. Not out of the playoffs yet, and they can beat Philly and get back on track.

  84. daknight93 says: Nov 5, 2012 9:23 AM

    this is too funny, Jason Garrett days are numbered..he will get the ax soon!

  85. wtf2812 says: Nov 5, 2012 9:24 AM

    Cowboys fans can stop the Sean Payton talk now. The guy is a great coach with a proven track record and if he truly wants to shop around for a new team he would NEVER go to one with a meddling owner who will always be looking over his shoulder and forcing decisions on him.

    IF he leaves the Saints he will go to another quality team where he has the same kind of control. That leaves out Dallas as long as Jones is there.

  86. fincity305 says: Nov 5, 2012 9:27 AM

    This is hilarious.. I’d be steaming if I were JJ, but I would also be steaming if I were a cowboy fan.. I’m going to say it’s 5:1 he gets Payton to coach dem cowgirls

    Kraft gave up his 1st round draft pick to the jests to get BB, who already said he would not work for that bogus operation.

  92. commonsensedude says: Nov 5, 2012 9:49 AM

    I don’t know about you guys, but I would pay some serious money to watch any existing cell phone footage of a steaming, cursing, angry Jerry Jones pounding on the locker room door. It makes me smile just thinking about it.

    Jerry Jones amuses me as much as an adult as Yosemite Sam from Looney Tunes made me laugh when I was a kid.

  93. edavidberg says: Nov 5, 2012 9:50 AM

    Maybe this is going to rally the team, save the Dallas season and Garrett his job.

    Coaches coach, GM’s manage, owners cheer from the press box and have no business being the locker room, especially a loser like Jerry Jones.

  94. beedubyatoo says: Nov 5, 2012 9:53 AM

    Locking him out wasn’t an accident.

    But, damn! I had Jerry on my fantasy team this week.

  97. wolfmanpatriot says: Nov 5, 2012 10:06 AM

    Come on people. Jones will never change his ways, and in a way, you should not want him to.
    He is one of the rare owners that doesn’t look at his team solely as a money endeavor. He gets into it. He loves his team like some guys like their train sets with all the trees and buildings etc.
    I think that any one of us that think this should be done this way, or that could be be handled by…..would be the same way if we owned the team.

    True, it may not be working for him, as far as getting to the show, but, what fun is a toy if you are not the one playing with it, right?
    I cannot help but have a certain amount of respect for an owner, guy, like this.

    Plus, they make it to the playoffs, they are not much of a threat, now are they?!? :-)

  98. markcycy says: Nov 5, 2012 10:24 AM

    Jerry as an Eagle fan please fire yourself as gm and make Andy Reid your Gm. He is awesome in the draft. He picks guys up in the first round like Brandon Graham and Danny Watkins. While passing on stiffs like JPP . He will do an excellent job making your football team the GOLD STANDARD. Please please please I am begging you to hire him.

  99. lucky5936 says: Nov 5, 2012 10:28 AM

    So either Garrett locked the door to prevent being fired, or Jerry hasn’t learned how to open those state of the art locker room doors. Old people and their technology.

  100. silverhornet says: Nov 5, 2012 10:30 AM

    this is standard operating procedure for any team to lock the door immediately after the game. They don’t let front office execs in until the coach is ready. And then they let the media in.

    Garrett wasn’t ready. Plain and simple. But now he has chosen the players over the owner. He’s burning the right bridge IMO. He’ll never be hired again by Jerry Jones. But some of those players/coaches in that locker room could get him hired as an assistant elsewhere when they vouch for him.

  101. bigjdve says: Nov 5, 2012 10:32 AM

    Jerry could’ve done a couple things with that.

    1. Locked them out of his plane for the trip home.

    2. Forget to sign their paychecks this week.

    While I find this humorous, it speaks to a lack of respect and discipline of the players. He is their boss, locking him out, isn’t a bright move. He pays them alot of money to have the right to go and bitch at them when they have bad games.

    They need to remember that.

  102. jaymc1988 says: Nov 5, 2012 10:36 AM

    thats pretty hilarious..and i dont blame then one bit. after a tough loss the last thing i would want to hear is my big mouth owner come down and tell me how we can do better or w.e he says.

  103. omen316 says: Nov 5, 2012 10:40 AM

    Idk why all u cowboy fans are so down on Jerry jones. As much as I dislike him he has brought some great talent to your team. Murray,Bryant ,Austin,Claiborne ,Lee its not Jerry he’s not the one one the field and he’s not calling the plays. He’s just putting the pieces there. Probably just need a new coach and QB and you’ll be all right or maybe it’s just cus cowboys suck!

  104. lombarditrophies says: Nov 5, 2012 10:43 AM

    I’m just picturing him holding his ear up against the door…”Come on guys…I can hear you in there! Seriously…it’s not funny anymore…let me in!

    And, ala Animal House, a voice from inside responds: “I’m doing the diiiishes…come back laaaater…”

  105. lightcleric says: Nov 5, 2012 10:45 AM

    Turns out he was actually just pushing on a pull door. He’s getting a bit senile.

    This is good stuff right here…lmmao…im shocked it took em so long to do it….im pissed because i wana see him pounding on the door live haaa…

    All Jokes aside… when did Jerry OWN the Georgia dome? i know the crowd was 50/50 split last nite but Jerry doesnt own that stadium.

  116. dman6015 says: Nov 5, 2012 11:20 AM

    Assuming this story is true (probably, but there will be a bunch of denials today), sorry, Dallas fans, but he owns the team, he owns the stadium, and can go wherever he wants, whenever he wants. He’s the George Steinbrenner of football. Only difference, though, is that George actually won a World Series every now and then.

    This idea of locking Jerruh out is well concieved yet poorly timed and executed. Here are some suggestions for improving the process:

    1) Lock Jerruh in the janitors closet immediately before every game, win or lose. Don’t let him out until the post game press conferences are completed.

    2) Lock Jerruh in the janitors closet immediately before the every draft, regardless of draft position, and release him just before the 7th round starts.

    3) Lock Jerruh in the janitors closet before the start of free agency, keeping him in the closet until free agency closes. He could be fed by slipping slices of cheese under the door.

    4) Lock Jerruh in the janitors closet during all head coach/GM interviews and hiring. The is will help the teams chances in post season immeasurably.

    I only pray that someone in the Cowboy organization has the stones to do what is necessary.

    bet theres already a new lock on the door and I know who has the only key. the players are gonna be waiting on Jerry after every game to open the door from now on.

    The first couple of responses have more “Likes” than any other response that I have ever seen on this site and I’ve been a member for years.

    Even to the casual observer this is pretty funny.

  120. goyzzo says: Nov 5, 2012 12:29 PM

    I do not know why Dallas fans and players are upset with their owner. He gives them everything they need to win, and is hands on about it.
    You want to see disgruntled fans, watch the Cleveland Browns play. I wish the Browns had someone that acted like they knew what they were doing!!!

  121. 1phd says: Nov 5, 2012 12:30 PM

    Dumping Jimmy Johnson karma is a biotch.

  122. nomoreseasontix says: Nov 5, 2012 12:46 PM

    The glory hole thing… Locked out of the locker room…

    You just can’t make this stuff up.

    I can’t wait for the next episode!

  123. phinfan says: Nov 5, 2012 1:01 PM

    Like I’ve said all the long. Time to start trading players while they have value. Romo, Ware, Miles, Witten can net allot of picks.

  124. ambitoos says: Nov 5, 2012 1:14 PM

    I pity the poor dude that did that.

  125. dirtyvu says: Nov 5, 2012 1:15 PM

    Garrett is dead man walking. His offensive system is downright offensive. Overly conservative. Uses way too much clock. Doesn’t have a killer instinct. Focuses too much on what the defense is doing rather than dictating to the defense.

    Doesn’t loosen up on the offense until late in the game where there’s too little time to make a difference. The last few games showed how bad Garrett is at running the offense. In Baltimore, he had plenty of time to run a few plays but ends up running a couple of plays and then kicking a long field that missed. last night, was terrible management until it got down to desperation time and he had to go to no huddle with romo making all the decisions.

    there are a lot of deficiencies on this team, most of all, the offensive line. however, garrett is responsible for getting these players to perform optimally.

    what separates great teams from average teams is making the play when it’s needed. too many times, there’s an easy dropped pass that would’ve been a first down. or an offensive line penalty. or a delay of game penalty.

  126. granadafan says: Nov 5, 2012 1:27 PM

    Someone had to take the up the mantle for the most incompetent and meddling owner when Al Davis passed. Both owners lived off their past glories while the modern game blew right by them.

  127. orivar says: Nov 5, 2012 1:29 PM

    Welp goodbye Jason Garret, the rest of the NFL hardly new ya! Like seriously, I still don’t know what he does.

  128. djt3010 says: Nov 5, 2012 1:57 PM

    There are two things wrong with the Cowboys, Dallas will never win as long as Jason Garrett is coach and Tony Romo is quarterback! That is the two things wrong with the Cowboys!

  129. waltrd says: Nov 5, 2012 2:00 PM

    I hope Jones was mad and angry about himself and the poor, poor job he has done as General Manager. Then his anger was justified. Until he fires himself as General Manager, obtains a competent GM to run the operation and stays out of his/her way, the Cowboys will never attain the heights they reached in by gone years.

  130. hamorgus says: Nov 5, 2012 2:18 PM

    AWESOME!!

  131. meldrel says: Nov 5, 2012 2:21 PM

    Hard to believe he wouldn’t have a master key or call a locksmith. Jerry must not have wanted in all that much…

  132. mnvikes7897 says: Nov 5, 2012 2:36 PM

    Own and leave the rest up to people who know what they’re doing

  133. pongonfl says: Nov 5, 2012 2:48 PM

    That will teach Garret to let Ryan be the last man in the changing room at the end of the game. One click of the lock and instant promotion.
    You know Garret would never do this.

  134. honkerdawg says: Nov 5, 2012 2:56 PM

    Cowboys will never win till they hire a real GM

  135. richie500 says: Nov 5, 2012 3:19 PM

    Another reason for Sean Lee to get away from this clown, and please sign with your hometown Steelers!

  136. athiest1 says: Nov 5, 2012 3:26 PM

    Fire Garret and trade Romo. That’s what a real GM/Owner would do.

  137. materialman80 says: Nov 5, 2012 3:34 PM

    This is a funny story! I’m sure old Jerry was beside himself. I suspect Jerry is going to clean house, which is way overdue, but I sure hate it cause I like them losing!

  138. simoneeliseh says: Nov 5, 2012 3:37 PM

    “Hey guys, maybe we should let Jerry in…” Said no Cowboy ever.

  139. charismel says: Nov 5, 2012 3:38 PM

    Winning teams aren’t built on potential. The Cowboys have been supremely overhyped for years. Time to DESTROY & REBUILD.

  140. tiredeaglesfan says: Nov 5, 2012 4:33 PM

    WILMAAAAAA! (For those who remember the Flinstones)

  141. samsjmail says: Nov 5, 2012 4:45 PM

    As a Cowboys fan since Don Meredith was the quarterback, my only goal in life is to outlive Jerry.

    The team he bought had 20 consecutive winning seasons and 1 coach. Now it seems like he’s had 1 winning season and 20 coaches since Jimmy Johnson quit.

  142. samsjmail says: Nov 5, 2012 4:46 PM

    Romo should never sign an extension. He should play out the last two years and run away as fast as he can.

  143. samsjmail says: Nov 5, 2012 4:51 PM

    “sorry, Dallas fans, but he owns the team, he owns the stadium, ”

    The game was in Atlanta.

  144. cags777 says: Nov 5, 2012 4:58 PM

    Owners need to be put in their place once in a while. Although it would have been bigger (and funnier) news if this would have happened in Dallas, this was a great little nugget of information to share.

  145. tformation says: Nov 5, 2012 5:01 PM

    Yeah. I find myself suddenly wishing there was a reality TV show following around Jerry Jones. Bet it would be very entertaining. For the schadenfreude if for no other reason.

  146. kev86 says: Nov 5, 2012 5:22 PM

    Cartoonist could have a field day with this one.

  147. ricardocabeza says: Nov 5, 2012 5:57 PM

    Surprised Jerry didn’t mimic the scene from the Shining with the fire ax. Heeeerrre’s Jerry!!!

  148. mazblast says: Nov 5, 2012 7:14 PM

    This will not end well
    ——————————
    Yeah, ain’t that great?

    Actually, they didn’t lock the owner out. They locked the incompetent GM out.
    ——————————
    There are two things wrong with the Cowboys, Dallas will never win as long as Jason Garrett is coach and Tony Romo is quarterback! That is the two things wrong with the Cowboys!
    ———————————–
    They’ve gone through a lot of coaches and QBs in the last 15 years, but only one owner and GM. This leads me to believe that while Garrett is unqualified and incompetent, and while Romo is severely overrated, the root of the team’s problems isn’t them. Start with hiring a real GM, add leaving the owner out of player personnel decisions, rebuild the lines, and stop going for glamor all the time. Flashy and/or pretty may sell tickets, but grunt work wins titles.

  149. bbeaman78 says: Nov 5, 2012 9:44 PM

    I’m a cowboys fan and have been since I was little. Everyone but Jerry knows Jimmy Johnson won those 3 Super Bowls. Jerry the GM and ego maniac still isn’t smart enough to get out if his own way.

    Add to this Garrett who can’t manage a clock with his Ivy League degree. Romo is reads his own headlines, and is like the goat for the cubs.

    Bring in Orton and let’s see what happens. Nothing to lose at this point.

  150. txnative61 says: Nov 6, 2012 12:56 AM

    Tom Landry was one of the game’s great innovators, with the flex defense, computer scouting, and assistants that excelled throughout the league for many years. Jerry’s disrespect for him alone was a travesty. He took over a team that wasn’t broken, and the fix broke it. He feuded publicly with Jimmy and crony from Oklahoma and generally made the Cowboys about drama rather than innovation and winning. The reason owners need GM’s is precisely BECAUSE they CAN be fired, while the owner cannot. It’s said he meddles because he cares, but at the end of the day he can console himself with the money no matter how much he breaks his toy. The lockout is too little too late. Nothing the brat does will surprise me.

  151. hor2012 says: Nov 6, 2012 10:50 AM

    You know this is funny in a not so funny sort of way. Say what you want about Jerry Jones he is a man that wants to win and win badly. But, I think he’s a awful GM because he looks at the team with his heart and not with his mind. I really feel bad for him. Now, there’s something else you might want to think about. Didn’t he just say that Jerry Jones the owner would have fired Jerry Jones the GM. I’m a Saints fan so that doesn’t sound too good to me. Could that be a orveture to SP. If he leaves the Saints he would want to have total control

  152. samsjmail says: Nov 6, 2012 11:44 AM

    The Dallas Cowboys are the Paris Hilton of the NFL.

    They’re famous for being famous.

  153. davidcl77 says: Nov 6, 2012 10:29 PM

    Anyone that would fire Jimmy Johnson deserves what this moron is going through. He now has his mouse coaching. Someone that will let him ruin the team and not say a word to him.

    A move like that to a man as ignorant as Jerry Jones is pretty stupid. Jason Garrett isn’t helping his chances to stick around pulling this kind of sh!+

    ————————————-

    Probably trying to get the hell out of Dallas. I have NO DOUBT that was done purposely.

    Think Sean Payton is leaving N.O. to put up with that?

    Will be an interesting offseason, to be sure.

  155. mazblast says: Nov 9, 2012 10:03 AM

    Part of me says I’m wrong in my reaction, but I find the mental image of JJ pulling on the door, unable to get in and unable to get the attention of anyone inside, freaking hilarious.

    I’m sure there are many Dallas fans who are saying, “He doesn’t listen to anyone, so the shoe’s on the other foot for once”.
