Video surfaces of Jerry Jones making a racist joke to a fan

  • NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell left and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones talk at the NFL football game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Cowboys at Wembley Stadium in London. The Associated Press has obtai

The owner said Jones could be subject to a fine if he files a lawsuit, and he also would face the prospect of paying attorney fees for both sides, under league rules.

Later on Friday, video surfaced of Jones from a few years ago in which he makes a racially insensitive comment.

"Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding", Jones says in a video obtained by a website called The Blast.

According to The Blast, the person who shot the video shared it with friends recently "because he thought the current temperature of race in the National Football League and the country made Jones' comments relevant".

AAA: 2017 to have most Thanksgiving travelers in 12 years
Prices this year are likely to be the highest since 2014, but should be lower than what motorists were paying earlier this month. A robust U.S. economy is driving across-the-board travel this season, according to the 115-year-old automobile association.

But the ESPN article alleges that after Goodell informed Jones that Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott was receiving a six-game suspension for being accused of domestic violence (he was not charged), Jones told Goodell, "I'm gonna come after you with everything I have".

The camera then pans to a black man, who ducks away from the shot, and back to Jones, who is laughing.

"I$3 won't cast judgment on one moment when a joke went south to capture who this man represents in a lifetime commitment of love and compassion to all ethnicities", Sanders told The Blast.

Jones, through a statement issued by the Cowboys on Friday, apologized.

Judge tells critics of his sex post: Lighten up
While O'Neill corrected the post to remove the mention of Taft, his original post was preserved for all eternity by a screenshot. He did amend his post to take out details of a few of the more than 50 lovers he claims, but says his post wasn't inappropriate.

Goodell is in the process of negotiating a contract extension-his current deal for his role as commissioner expires in 2019-but Jones has been trying to prevent it from happening with Elliot's suspension seemingly being the main reason.

Jones had planned the meeting with the hope to halt the negotiations regarding the extension of Goodell's contract for another five years.

Nobody knows exactly what Jones is going to do, but it's clear he means business, and it will be much, much more than anything Kraft did following Deflategate.

"It would be madness to think that everything I'm doing isn't in the best short and long-term interest of the NFL", Jones said. "Jerry's message to Roger was 'I run this league".
