ESPN’s Chris Mortensen came on quickly thereafter, and said he would be very surprised if the NFL takes any action against Jones.
Yes, the league holds their owners to a higher standard, as evidenced by the Bud Adams fine last year. But Jones was secretly videotaped at a bar, and little of what he said was particularly controversial or untrue.
Jones’ assessment of Bill Parcells was harsh, but also included “love” for the Big Tuna.
The story may be embarrassing, but Mortensen said it’s not likely to have any legs with the league. That’s the only conclusion that makes sense.
