CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on Sunday that owners are starting to turn on the Cowboys owner because of how he’s attempted to wield his power in ownership circles.
And there might even be a “nuclear” option on the table too, as Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported on Sunday night that some owners have begun digging into the CBA to consider the possibility of making Jones forfeit his ownership of the Cowboys.
According to Florio’s report, “multiple owners have already been discussing the possibility” of using Article VIII in the NFL’s constitution and bylaws.
From Florio: Specifically, Section 8.13 authorizes the commissioner to determine that an owner “has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football.”
Apparently, the decision by Jones to back Papa John’s owner John Schnatter was “the primary affront” to the other owners — Florio reports there are owners who believe “Jones instigated Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter to disparage the NFL, blaming league leadership for ratings declines and, in turn, a reduction in Papa John’s revenues.”
