Jerry Jones labels Papa John’s CEO who blasted the NFL a “great American”

When Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter blasted the NFL’s leadership under Commissioner Roger Goodell, attention immediately turned to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who also owns 120 Papa John’s franchises. Was Jones, who has his own problems with Goodell, behind Schnatter’s comments?

In a radio appearance today, Jones said nothing to distance himself from that kind of speculation.

Asked about his connection to Schnatter, Jones expressed deep admiration for him and indicated that he agrees with Schnatter that the NFL’s leadership hasn’t done a good enough job of dealing with the ongoing national anthem controversy.

“The facts are that I’ve spent my life, the last 28 to 30 years of my life, being knee-deep and immersed in anything and everything I can do for the Cowboys and through that the NFL,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. “On the other hand, I am a joint owner of the businesses of 120 Papa John’s stores here in Texas. And John Schnatter is one of the great Americans. He’s the story of America. He started off in his dad’s bar just doing a pizza with a little oven or microwave, and he’s built that thing into one of the greatest businesses. Papa John’s was named by all of the people that look at the NFL, Papa John’s was named as the product most associated with the NFL and it was named that a year ago by a survey of all of our viewers. So he is quite an American story.”

Given Jones’s effusive praise of Schnatter, there’s little doubt that he agrees with Schantter’s opinion that there has been “poor leadership” at the top of the NFL.

  1. Too bad the pizza is RUBBISH that tastes like cardboard..

    Better pizza/ingredients?! Go to a local Italian joint. Papa johns to pizza is what Applebee’s is to Weber grill Chicago.

  2. Well, he’s not wrong. Leadership in the NFL has been incredibly poor whether it be dealing with the anthem issue, player discipline, you name it.

    Can anyone here say with a straight face that NFL leadership is in a good place right now?

  3. We should care about the owner of Papa John’s, one of the worst and overpriced pizzas in America? In all over the city of Chicago there are only 2 Papa Johns because they cant compete against all the real pizza places here. This guy deserves no platform

  4. Curiously, Jones is quiet about efforts to overlook criminality if it means a good player might be able to suit up for the Cowboys. Greg Hardy, among others – good Americans, all.

    Because leadership.

  5. I don’t think Papa John’s pizza would even be good for sticking under your tire in the event you get stuck in the snow, let alone putting in someone’s mouth. YUCK!

  6. What’s really sad is that Jerry has crafted this agenda to oust Goodell and he’s using this guy as pawn to get back at Goodell for the Elliot suspension.
    Unbelievable that Jerry’s ego is so fragile that he’s done this. It’s painfully transparent and the other owners are not going to like it.
    What a bum this guy is.

  7. Appears I am the minority, but for a large pizza chain, I think it’s pretty good pizza. Plus they have great bread sticks that come with those garlic sauce packs.

    However, none of these things make him a “Great American.”

  8. The NFL players have been disrespecting our veterans, insulting our intelligence, idolizing violent criminals, and glamorizing domestic violence by kneeling. Of course fans are abandoning the NFL in droves.

    Papa John pizza is disrespecting its customers and insulting their tastebuds by serving disgusting, low quality pizza. Again, it’s no surprise sales are tanking. Many better choices out there.

  9. To be honest I’m tired of hearing about anything anthem related. I really don’t see many of the players kneeling or sitting during the anthem I’ve watched a few games and they all stood so I’m starting to think this is media hyped one and two papa John’s is just trying to get some free publicity cause their pizza suck.

  10. Michael Irvin.. Nate Newton.. Josh Brent.. Jay Ratliff.. Dez Bryant.. Pac Man.. Greg Hardy.. Dwayne Goodrich.. If Jerrah knows anything, its outstanding ‘Mericans…

  11. There are a lot of people in our country that think David Duke is a great American. That’s kinda how this whole kneeling thing got started in the first place. These are the kind of people that sit on juries and allow cops who got caught on videotape shooting unarmed black men, to go free. That’s where we are. We used to try to hide our true feelings about racial issues, now we don’t even try. We call them flag issues.

  12. John Schnatter is right. The NFL leadership, by owners and Roger Goodell was pathetic.

    They turned an issue where an ignorant American who thinks he is smarter then everyone Colin Kaepernick, but is instead just believing incorrect propaganda who should of been suspended, and allowed it to fester.

    By allowing the festering to continue other players started joining in. They don’t know what they are doing, but are just doing it for any cause now. Thus it’ll never be finished.

    Early on, despite his idiocy, the NFL could of shown leadership and after suspending him, come up with a way to support some sort of cause. Just not the psycho causes that Kaepernick believes in. But it would of resonated with everyone else.

    Because the NFL didn’t do this, they are now in a circus where idiot players are taking advantage of owners that are hogs. The media is just crazy, evidenced by Jemele Hill, and the usual fake mainstream media news, and boycotts were called by both sides.

    John Schnatter is right, and to prove he is right, he has started to pull his ads.

    The owner and players aren’t going to like it when their bosses, the season ticket holders, the viewers, and the sponsors start laying down the law to them. They all make their money at OUR pleasure.

  13. uh o..in modern day america, being proud to be an american is akin to wearing a scarlet letter…what’s good will be evil, what’s evil will be good..indeed

  14. Goodell needs to reach a compromise with Jones, quickly. There is no good ending here: either Jones eventually gets pressured to sell, or Goodell gets pressured to leave. It’s a bad situation for NFL.

  15. Did I mention I like to state my personal opinion as fact when it comes to food? As if its not one of the biggest selling pizza chains throughout the country. I’m a little odd

  16. Maybe if “Papa John” would stop feeding his ego by appearing on all his commercials he could have some professionals put together a decent advertising campaign and stop the slide his company is on. When I worked in advertising we found that if the owner was an ego maniac that thought he should be in his spots, we made a lot more money and he couldn’t really criticize our efforts.

  17. Great American who got rich making lousy pizza ,we truly do live in the greatest country on earth !

  18. It’s obvious there’s been poor leadership at the top, because whatever the issue both sides are unhappy. Anthem? Check. Deflategate? Check. Domestic violence? Check.

  19. I don’t know how this guy’s comment that owners should have “nipped it in the bud” in relation to Kapernick is any less politically correct than the Houston owner’s comment about inmates running the prison (who I don’t think was saying he owned a prison?). Don’t know about this guy being a great American, and am not even sure I like his pizza.

  20. “Papa John’s was named as the product most associated with the NFL and it was named that a year ago by a survey of all of our viewers.”

    First off from personal experience I can state with absolute certainty it wasn’t all of your viewers. Secondly people like to cast themselves in a good light so there’s an inherent bias to polls. The odds are good many people didn’t want to admit beer is the product they most associate with the NFL. Informal PFT poll; thumbs up for beer, down for Papa Johns

  21. This is the same clown who was a big loudmouth saying that Obamacare would ruin the pizza business, something that apparently failed to happen because big mouth is back with a new announcement as to what is now ruining his business.

    Look in a mirror, big mouth.

  22. And by God, Jerry Jones knows a “great American” when he sees one. Examples: Ezekiel Elliot, Dez Bryant, Greg Hardy, Terrell Owens…..and on and on. If they can “ball”, no crime is too serious.

  23. “I mean I don’t get it. We’ve got someone accused of sexual assault as our spokesman, our pizza is pretty expensive, we don’t pay our employees well, I raised the price of pizzas after saying I would donate $1 for each pizza sold, I said I’d rather close shop than raise pizza prices a quarter to give my employees health care, and I insert my dumb face in every piece of promotional material that goes out. It’s gotta be the anthem stuff.” – Papa John, Probably

  24. Papa John is a douche nozzle weasel and his pizza sucks. Not surprisingly, Jerry is also a douche nozzle weasel who’s football team sucks

  25. I don’t know how this guy’s comment that owners should have “nipped it in the bud” in relation to Kapernick is any less politically correct than the Houston owner’s comment about inmates running the prison (who I don’t think was saying he owned a prison?). Don’t know about this guy being a great American, and am not even sure I like his pizza….

    Stand for the anthem, remove the pig socks and take off the Castro T Shirt…There is your bud being nipped…

  26. Being the “Most” associated product with the NFL doesn’t really amount to much because i’m not sure the majority of Americans associate ANY product with the NFL. And bringing up Papa Johns didn’t register because i could easily have thought Pizza Hut was a sponsor.

  27. All Jerry was saying is that John’s story about starting a small business and growing into a major franchise is a great American story…and he’s right. Whether you like the pizza or not is irrelevant to his point. He’s built a huge franchise from nothing and Jerry respects that.

    Of course John saying that Papa John’s earnings are down due to the NFL anthem is quite a stretch at best, but Jerry didn’t say he agreed with that assessment. And I’ve yet to see any proof that Jerry was behind the comments that John said. Pure speculation that may or may not be true.

  28. I don’t like the pizza…

    But his message is spot on…

    Goodell enabled these morons to hijack the national audience for their own personal agenda.

  29. Too bad the pizza is RUBBISH that tastes like cardboard..

    Better pizza/ingredients?! Go to a local Italian joint. Papa johns to pizza is what Applebee’s is to Weber grill Chicago.

    ==========

    While I agree, most people don’t have a local Italian joint. with authentic toppings from Italy and what not.

    You say it’s the Applebees of pizza. Hometown I grew up in really only had an Applebees as an “upscale” sit in restaurant. Everything else was dive bars and drive thru

  30. He also thought Goodell was doing “an amazing job”…when it was Brady he was going after.

  31. Like the Pizza or not this NFL issue has to hurt sponsors.

    PJs buys millions of dollars worth of ads hoping people will buy their product on Sundays. The are a partner of the NFL which cost more millions.. and since becoming associated with the NFL has raised their brand. Now the current leadership of the NFL started to relax rules and allow the players to drive the ship. Clearly some of America hasn’t liked this because numbers are down since #7took a knee. Like Trump or not his loyal backers will stop buying from brands they feel do not back values they hold dear.

    PJs is feeling the NFL’s lack of direction in this mess… and they should be allowed to speak up if they notice if effecting their brand.

  32. These articles are providing a platform to kill Papa John’s pizza. If you didnt know that their pizza was horrible before (it is, just like all chain pizzas), you sure do now.

  33. when you’re paying ad rates for 18 million viewers per game but in reality only getting 15 million viewers because of NFL mis-management, I think you’re allowed to sound-off or did I miss the NFL giving money back to their advertisers.

  34. Papa John’s, yet another corporate liar endorsed by the NFL. ‘Better’ ingredients? This is a lie. Low quality to average ingredients is the truth because every penny a chain can shave off its cost, the higher the profits. Same for their worker’s wages.

  35. Funny how Jerry owns 120 Papa Johns Pizza stores and when it came to decide who to stand with …the NFL or his pizza places….he chose his pizza franchise.

    Is ‘your pizza sucks’ the only hot take you SJWs can some up with?
    ———————————————–

    Is “NFL protesters are disrespecting the flag” the only one you can come up with? Seriously, all these poster claiming players “don’t even know what they are protesting” don’t seem to know themselves what the players are protesting. Even if a person thinks shooting unarmed black men is not problematic, the target of the protest is more than clear, and it’s not the flag nor is is veterans. To suggest it is intentionally obscures the issue. Beat your chests again, tell me how much you love America…when we enforce patriotism, then what value does it ultimately have?

  37. I ate Papa John’s once. it was terrible. I would rather order Dominoes, and even then only because a local joint is closed.

    I would never order PJ’s because the owner does not believe he had any responsibility toward his employees. If a company can’t pay a living wage, can’t take care of its employees, it does not deserve to be in business. When profit can only be accrued by stepping on labor, i.e., WalMart, then a business using this model deserves to fail.

    ——

    Well, since Papa John was trying to explain Papa Johns’ declining profits, the fact that “his pizza sucks” seems a more reasonable place to start than “a few black NFL players kneeled during the anthem.”

  39. His pizza is processed garbage that makes you sick and he won’t help pay for his emplyees’s health insurance. His pie is so loaded in fat it will give you a heart attack.

  40. When I see the American government and the VA actually start taking proper care of veterans and giving them ALL –not SOME, but ALL– of the physical and mental treatment they need after ducking bullets in the name of this flag and anthem everyone is so up in arms about, then MAYBE I’ll take any arguments about how disrespectful peacefully protesting during it is to veterans. Until that day, everyone can kindly shut the hell up, starting with the people in Washington.

  41. Kap needs to work! Let him be a Papa Johns delivery driver. He can’t read a defense but perhaps he can accurately deliver pizza.

  42. The major networks are locked into contracts to pay the NFL for broadcasting rights. These contracts aren’t up for a few more years.

    But the major networks charge advertising fees based on viewer ship.

    I’ve read several articles about the major networks kicking back a lot of money to advertisers because the ratings are way down.

    Bottom line is the NFL isn’t and won’t lose money for a few more years, but the major networks are taking a bath.

    When the next TV contracts are negotiated the NFL is going to take a hosing. The salary cap will also have to go down IMO, could be a huge drop.

    ESPN lost 480,000 customers last month alone. That’s 15,000 a day.

  43. “If our company succeeds and makes excessive profits, we are under no obligation to share that with our employees” -Papa John, Great American and living proof that trickle-down is a myth.

  44. Make a mental note of this: When Papa John’s ends its partnership with the NFL, its sales and stock are going to spike (go way up). In fact, buying 3 month long options on Papa John’s stock could be a great trade. Only unknown is when divorce is announced.

    Also, it is, ‘smarter THAN’, not then.
    Oh, and it is, ‘should HAVE, not of.

    I couldn’t even read the rest of that nonsensical diatribe.

    I will try to interpret this post to the, ‘ignorant Americans’, if you’d like.

  46. Loving all of the pizza connoisseurs coming out of the woodwork. Some of us get and appreciate the symbolism of the flag and anthem, everyone else can continue to focus on pizza. In every business in America, the owner figures out where to spend the money and who to support. Business is concerned about reality, SJW’s about feelings and fairness. Again.. if you don’t like his pizza, vote with your $20, he’ll continue to vote with his million$.

    I couldn’t agree more. The Anthem is a big thing but letting Brady and Belichick hang around after multiple offenses for cheating is ridiculous.

    Some of us believe more in ideals than we do symbols, ideals like “justice for all,” which would exclude extra-judicial executions such as the one Walter Scott or Tamir Rice were victim to. While some of us are apoplectic over perceived disrespect to a symbol, the ideals informing this nation, one with liberty and justice for all, are dispensed when people may be executed without a trial, and when more dollars means more say. One person, one vote…not one dollar, one vote.

    Worship of symbols is for the small minded, worshippers of golden calves.

  49. Funny how people are blasting Papa John’s pizza as horrible. Personally, I don’t buy cheap take out/delivery pizza. There are a couple places I will buy pizza where I live and none of them are chain stores. What do people expect for 8 or 10 bucks? Gourmet pizza? Same people blasting Papa John’s probably order from Dominos or Pizza Hut.

    Anyway, if sponsors are not seeing a return on their advertising, expect to a decrease in the cost to advertise. That will bring down revenues and eventually, players salaries.

    I don’t get how people fail to understand how these stupid protests will have a negative impact on the sport.

  50. Since the only thing that most of you bozos can focus on is the quality of Papa John’s pizza, I guess that means that all is well with the NFL. If you know anyone that has stopped watching the NFL, tell them is it safe to come back.

    One thing that confuses me though, is that since Goodell only does what the owners tell him to do, isn’t Papa actually talking about the NFL owners when he talks about poor leadership?

    Its basic consumerism.

    I’m not going to buy a product I don’t like or want, and I’m not going to support a company that doesn’t provide me with a quality service.

    The NFL isn’t a victim here. Consumers of their product are.

    They’re going the route of the Auto giants in Detroit.

  53. I don’t think it’s an association with the NFL that has hurt sales. It’s the crummy pizza. And the more these two bring up the topic, the more you are going to hear here and other platforms that there are better pizza places out there, further hurting sales.

    Unless profit sharing is in your contract, they are under no obligation to pay you for their successses .
    Business is there to make money- not push your latest charity cause or chop up the profits to everyone working for them. This is capitalism, which makes America great!

  55. If the only thing to come out of the kneeling issue is a downturn in Papa John’s business…it will be a rousing success. Little Caesar’s is better than that stuff. Little Caesar’s!

  56. OK, look, this is getting ludicrous.

    We get it. Jerrah is pissed at Goodell because of Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension. The Papa John guy is a Trump supporter and, like Trump, when things don’t go his way he blames others.

    But if you become a “great American” by screwing your customers with a crappy product and your employees with health care, then small wonder this country is going to hell.

  57. I wonder how many times a Papa John’s commercial was airing while the anthem was being played at the stadium of the game being shown.

  58. A great American? Dude makes pizzas that taste like lukewarm garbage. That’s not even great if you limit it to food, let alone all potential impacts an American could potentially make.

  59. Dude needs to look at every news story and the comments, Say what you want but Americans can agree on food ! Good or bad, the people have spoken and they agree Your Pizza is trash!!! Stop blaming everyone else for your crap product.

    We all have challenges, but in America regardless of color or creed, we have an opportunity to be successful by choosing wisely and working hard. Please understand differentiation between appreciation and worship of the “golden calves”. In America anyone with any vision and experience develops appreciation of the ideals and advantages we get and the symbols that represent all those advantages. I don’t need any young 1%ers playing a kids game to tell me how to think. Sorry. All Americans of all races have challenges, but vision, persistence, and hard work brings success without looking for someone to blame. Even if I did buy the kneelers arguments and message, I still don’t want any politics with my football. It’s too bad these youngsters go down the SJW road of victims, following Malcolm X, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and not the wiser road of Clarence Thomas, MLK, and millions of successful black businessmen. And please attempt to wrap your mind around the fact that more things go around in this world due by voting with your wallet than at the ballot box.

    Sure, he’s not wrong, but to say it out loud isn’t a very smart business move. Underpaid workers are low-morale workers. Low-morale workers make low-quality products. Low-quality products affects sales. This is also capitalism and what makes America great! Papa John is not obligated pay his employees a penny more than the bare minimum; he is also not obligated to have high sales. I love the company I work for and I work harder for them as a result. Investing in your employees is investing in your business.

    Get into a grammar book and realize the difference between plural and possessive.

    Ad hominems do not make an argument. Look up logical fallacies.

    “Get out in the world a bit.” A little presumptuous given we have never met, and you know nothing of my world experience, other than I disagree with your perspectives. If that is the case, I may as well just refer to you as a fascist and a racist. But that would mean recourse to another logical fallacy, the straw man, where I set you up as a caricature in only so that I may knock that caricature down.

    Thanks for the, uh, “lesson.”

  66. If athletes should stick to sports, then, by parallel logic, a plumber should stick to plumbing, and so on. But the problem is not that athletes have not “stuck to sports,” I presume. Rather, athletes have voiced a perspective others think is invalid or unnecessary.

    And the notion that MLK was not in favor of social justice is absurd as well as blind to history. Poor People’s Campaign; healthcare as a human right; Civil Rights Movement.

  67. I just love when the fascist and racist come out, best argument for the SJW. So, have you been out in the world a bit or still in school.. Probably not working are ya?

  68. The irony of the fact that Papa john is a great American and the “Story of America” by working out of his Dad’s Bar. Didn’t know you had to have advantages of successful parents to make it in amer- oh wait.

    Besides, who cant see that all of this is a ploy for Jerry to get rid of Goddell. If only a powerful billionaire could use his influence and connections to help reform criminal justice- Oh nevermind

    MLK would frown on BLM. All lives matter, judge on content of character, not skin color..

    2 things.
    1)Its always funny how folks want to say what MLK would think and do when he was killed by people who think as you do today. He would have called out hypocrisy and hatred which seems to be spread. if Black lives mattered, then there would be no need to say all lives. That’s elementary. And if you actually cared, you would know

    2)What did any person on here character do to you? You seems to believe the billionaires character supersedes the ones who’s helping them be rich. Most of these owners were handed teams. They didn’t earn them. But I guess its safe to say that you are nothing at your place of employment and only the company owners are right

    1. Sorry, I judge all based on character, not race, and have friends of all colors.. And that’s a big jump to say people that think as I kill anyone, probably just as easy and inaccurate to say people that think as you do would kill. There’s no hatred here, unless by that you’re using the SJW meaning of hatred as disagreement. It’s simple, all lives do matter, just not one race more than another.

    2. Business owners bust their butts to start and grow their businesses, I know as I am a small business owner. As Americans, we all have freedom of choice. If you don’t like where you work or who you work for, take responsibility and make a change. It’s nearly always in the best interest of any business to hold on to good employees. I don’t know Schnatter from Adam, can’t say what he’s like personally, but probably no one else here can either. Many people here focused on pizza, but he’s got every right to make decisions to aid his business in whatever way he thinks is best. I’ve walked in your shoes, before condemning owners, walk a mile in their shoes.

  71. The players run the NFL and not the owners or the commissioner of the league. The NFL needs someone who will not put up with there goddess ways. As for Mr. Papa John, his pizza is crap just like the league he endorses. I would love to see both the NFL and Papa John fold.
