It’s clear that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t want former coach Jimmy Johnson getting too much credit for winning Super Bowls.
And it’s just as clear how Johnson feels about his former boss.
Bob West of the Port Arthur (Texas) News apparently tried to broker an interview between Johnson and Don Van Natta for the recent ESPN magazine story on Jones, to no avail.
But Johnson made his feelings known to West after reading the piece.
“About like I expected,” Johnson said in an e-mail. “Jerry comes across as a rich a–hole.”
Jones has always been more partial to “glory hole,” but it’s obvious these two have no use for each other.
It’s almost like there was a little too much testosterone (or something) in the room for these two to ever co-exist for long.
