Jerry Jones reportedly “furious” with Elliott suspension

For months, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has insisted that running back Ezekiel Elliott wouldn’t face any punishment from the league for the domestic violence incident last summer.

And now that Elliott has been suspended six games, he’s not pleased.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Jones is reportedly “furious” with the league’s decision.

What he does about it is another question. If anything, the league is accustomed to powerful owners having a beef with the league, based on the chill between commissioner Roger Goodell and Patriots owner Robert Kraft following their Deflategate penalties.

Goodell has always contended there was no tension, though Kraft’s own words and actions suggest otherwise.

  1. Best reply to that headline??

    Whaaaaaaaaaaa!

    Which was more painful Cowboys fans?:

    A) Tony Romo going on vacation on the bye week in the playoffs and losing to the Giants?

    B) The Dez “CATCH” and the lost to the Packers?

    C) The last second loss to the Packers on an amazing throw and catch and last second field goal?

  2. lol

    As a Pats fan I know why Goodell did this, but I admit I am still surprised Goodell keeps digging himself a deeper hole.

    These precedents he’s setting are outrageous.

    Yet, Pacman Jones is still allowed in the NFL. lol

  3. Sucks when a key player is suspended for what you think is a bogus reason, doesn’t it. Cowboy fans (and owner) will get no sympathy from anyone in New England.

  4. Despite the fact that Goodell has made some questionable calls in the past, Jerry Jones reaction proves the commissioner nailed this one. Jones’ is a great reverse indicator when it comes to topics such as integrity and class.

  5. Goodell works for the owners. He better not burn too many bridges. Although as long as he keeps the money rolling into the owners, they will probably overlook his BS

  6. To all the Cowboys’ fans that were celebrating Goodell and the NFL framing Brady…..karma sucks. To the rest of the Cowboys’ fans….this stinks. Goodell is entirely out of control and is ruining the game. But think of the upside, if Dallas can manage to win 4-5 games they will get back a well-rested and healthy Elliott for the remainder of the season. It worked for the Patriots!

  7. Pay back is a female dog. If Jones is as good as he says he is he’ll win the super bowl like the Patriots did with Brady serving a bs suspension Jones supported.

  8. Jerry Jones wants to be a HOF’er than man up and apologize to thousands of fans of the Dallas Cowboys. Furious, furious is these self entitled athlete’s that feel they can do as they please not once but many times with out one bit of remorse or accountability.

  9. Expect Jerry to take the league to court over this. The NFL should provide their “credible evidence” that something happen and if they can’t prove that in court, the suspension could be overturned. So, I would expect a court battle in the “real” courts of law, not the NFL court of “ok were being publicly ridiculed because we aren’t tough on domestic violence ” court.

  10. I’m confused by the fans of this league. For the past few years fans are growing tired of Goodells tyranny. Now it happens to the one owner (Jones)that isn’t afraid to nuke the commissioner and the fans are against Jerry. You guys should be all about what he likely will be doing soon…what to you hoped your owner would do to the commissioner. Are you for the commissioner or against?

  11. Unless he’s completely delusional he had to see this was coming. But yeah, Jerruh is completely delusional so I’m not surprised. He’s probably furious when his other players have been suspended too. Maybe if he didn’t sign so many dirtbags he wouldn’t have to worry about it.

  12. Well that is two powerful owners Roger has ticked off.

    His time is coming.

    More to come…

  13. This has to hurt Cowgirl fans, doesnt it?

    21 years and counting since the last Super Bowl…makes you feel like you are the Browns doesnt it??

    The bandwagon jumpers are getting off now!

    Ya right Jerry wants to be like the Cheaters. Brady wasn’t framed …..he thumbed his nose at Roger and got what he deserved. Isn’t it time for you Whining Patriot fans to let it go as you always advise others to do?

    The league is doing this cretin a favor by giving him a warning that may save someone’s life and a guy’s career…..how is that bad?

  15. Well, the league seems to have Elliott over a barrel. If he does nothing, he serves 6 games. If he appeals, then the league shares info that might be pretty ugly. At best, he only reduces his suspension a couple games and, for the pleasure, has to have all the hidden pics and info put into the public spotlight. If I were him, I’d be really careful how you move forward if there is any validity to the domestic abuse story. And my guess is that there is and the league is simply sitting back and tempting Elliott and Jones to let it be released.

  16. Really? You canned a guy for shoplifting when there was no evidence and he didn’t do it and then after said you made the right decision and now you’re pissed about a decision when there’s video evidence of this guy sexually assaulting a woman(and yes baring a woman’s breast without her consent in public is sexual assault) and maybe far worse with another woman?

    Stay classy Jerruh!

  17. Jerry may be “furious” but he should realize that he still came out on top. He may be “furious” about Elliott’s 6 game suspension but anyone with a respect for pro football history is mortified by the fact that Jones was enshrined in the HOF.

  18. Tough beans !!! It’s all fun and games till your rb is suspended but it ” was good for the game ” when Brady got it..
    Tough beans Jerry..the lines to the left !!!take a number

  19. Jerry Jones during deflatgate- But he’s doing an outstanding job. I can tell you firsthand that in his spot you have to with people that you are counting on to help build and to help excel as far as the National Football League, I’m talking about the owners, you have to know that you’re going to make some decisions that are very unpopular with that particular group. This is the case.”

    what comes around goes around

  20. Not a Cowboys fan, so unbiased opinion. Goodell needs to go. Alternatively the next Collective Bargaining Agreement needs to have a neutral arbitration provision for his disciplinary decisions. He’s now judge, jury, executioner, and his own appellate review.

  21. ON a positive note for Cowboy’s fans, an 8 and under pee wee league player could get 100 yards a game behind that o line.

  22. Goodell has always contended there was no tension, though Kraft’s own words and actions suggest otherwise
    —-
    Meaning Goodell lied again? And he is a shameless liar? You don’t say.

    🙂

    I’m sure Goodell would be happy to budge on that if the players agree to 18 game seasons and games in China, Australia and South America.

  24. Brady got the hammer for not just saying, “yep, the ball boys know I like the ball underinflated a little when it’s cold” and apologizing and owning up to it. Would’ve got a slap on the wrist and a fine. Instead, he destroyed his phone and impeded the investigation. The Giants punter should have been suspended for longer but then again, he hasn’t played a down since and he never will — problem solved. Elliot will play for years assuming he’s got enough brains to not re-offend, which looks to be a 50-50 proposition. Stop blaming the messenger and blame the player.

  25. All you people in thread after thread calling for Goodell’s ouster just remember, we could get somebody worse. Somebody who’s actually afraid of the owners.

  26. Come on folks …it’s ALL an act. If Jones took it laying down, he would appear weak. By acting outraged, he comes across as a hero to all the Cowboy fans and the media. He KNOWS darn well, the suspension will be only 4 games after an appeal. IT’s all an act.

  27. Have people forgotten that the owners and players specifically gave the Commish the power to issue this discipline? If they don’t like the process or the power that is wielded, they should look in the mirror and yell at themselves rather than Goodell.

  28. Just curious where all those Cowboys “fans” are now, you know, the ones that were cheering on Goodell when he was sticking it to Tom Brady. As an Eagles fan, I am not cheering on Goodell today because it could be an Eagles player that is next in line to pay for Goodell’s Ray Rice sins.

  29. Too bad he wasn’t “furious” with the over 50 documented lies Goodell told about Brady and the Pats in the framegate farce that Jones fully supported.

    He might get a bit more sympathy if he had gone with backing science instead of a corrupt serial liar

  30. Cowboys win Super Bowl, avenge bogus suspension al la Patriots.
    =====

    As long as its the Patriots they defeat, I’m perfectly fine with that.

  31. how’s that old German poem go? I’m paraphrasing I know- First they came for my neighbors and I said nothing?

  32. So when all the owners were silent when the legacy of the best player in their league was being dragged through the mud by their Commissioner over air in a football what did they think would happen? Did they think they wouldn’t be subject to the same treatment from Goodell?

    How does it feel when you are going to Lose your best player for more than a quarter of the season when he hasn’t even been charged with a crime. Not so good. The owners have to do something about Roger. He thinks he’s bigger than the game.

    Belichick and Brady vs 2nd year QB and any RB in history and I will take that game right now.

  34. Is Jerry enraged about Elliott’s actions, Elliott’s suspension for his actions or both? If Mr. Jones is upset about the suspension only, then shame on him and all who have zero empathy for victims of violence.

  35. Ha ha ha ha !! Nothing better than seeing Jerruh Jones all upset over another loss or one of his “kids” getting disciplined!

    The thing that is most telling about Jones is how callous is he toward the victim. She is the one who Jones should have his focus on, not Elliott.

  36. Next time don’t keep stepping up to defend this clown of a commissioner who has done nothing but tarnish the league every year he’s had that job. The owners are getting what they deserve for that.

  37. Jerry is just used to felons being allowed to play in Dallas. Luckily for the league and the US it wasn’t up to home-town enforcement.

  38. The local authorities should issue a court order to the NFL requiring them to furnish them whatever evidence they have in this case. If it is substantial they could reopen the case. If not, the NFL would be exposed as a “Kangaroo Court”.

  39. You call that a suspension? LOL. Imagine if your entire team and fan base was suspended for a YEAR based on rumors.

  40. I thought Goodell was just a puppet of the owners? How could he take such an action against one of his puppeteers?

  41. The thing that is most telling about Jones is how callous is he toward the victim. She is the one who Jones should have his focus on, not Elliott.

    You mean similar to the victims of Hernandez…….come on don’t be such a hypocrite.

  42. Yo, Jerruh! You draft the guys who are low lifes and you build a prison farm team. Don’t whine when your draft picks turn out to be woman beaters and scum.

    You deserve this – you pompous old fart who really needs to move on to his slippers and think about what a sad legacy you’ve built where you produce more men who have left your team as pond scum than you have with Super Bowl winners in the last 20 years.

  43. Maybe if Jerry did a little research on the personal histories of players he wants to sign or draft he would find his roster decimated by suspensions.

    Garrett kicked Whitehead off the team for something he clearly did no do because he wants his team to have high standards. He had a lot to say about Whitehead, going to be interesting to see him take the podium to announce the Cowboys have released Elliott for his non Cowboy way transgression.

    Karma Jerry, all about the karma.

  44. I remember when Tom Brady got suspended,we all know that was a sham all the other owners rejoiced including Mr. Jones,I also remember thinking to myself that this could come back to haunt other owners,Well karma has paid you a visit Mr. Jones!you have no one to blame but yourself and the other owners not named Bob Kraft!

  45. The Patriot’s have always cheated. Jerry Jones pays his players under the table and bends the rules to his advantage. I’m sure other owners can’t wait to see the guillotine drop on their necks.
