Jerry Jones may be losing some friends within the National Football League community as he attempts to derail Roger Goodell's contract extension talks, but the Dallas Cowboys owner isn't the slightest bit concerned about being forced to sell his team.
One wonders why Jones' opposition to Goodell's contract, whatever the reason for the opposition, should be a big deal? Jones' threat prompted some owners from the six-owner compensation committee to reportedly issue a cease-and-desist warning to Jones.
The range of punishments, according to the Times, includes fines, docking draft picks and even suspending Jones, who has owned the Cowboys since 1989. "I've had not one inkling of communication with the league office or any owner that would suggest something that laughable and ridiculous".

"If somebody is asserting that or thinking about that kind of thing, then they are not knowledgeable about how things work in the National Football League".
Goodell is seeking the use of a private jet for life as part of his new five-year compensation package from the league's owners, ESPN reported Sunday. He has inserted himself into discussions on Goodell's extension, threatened to sue the league and owners on the compensation committee, and there are some that believe he pushed Papa John's CEO John Schnatter to come after the NFL.
"The committee is continuing its work towards finalizing a contract extension with the commissioner", he said.

Jerry Jones doesn't want Roger Goodell to get that extension he's after.
"I like to hope that Tyron (Smith) is back" said Jones. "He has 18 months left on there". We've got all the time in the world to extend him. "We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions". "We need to slow this train down", Jones would say during his weekly radio appearance.
