Jerry Jones: 'Laughable, Ridiculous' to Think Owners Could Force Him Out

The Washington Post reported that if Jones is guilty of conduct detrimental to the league, he could be fined, the team could lose draft picks and Jones could face discipline, to include suspension.

The impetus for all this? Jones, who was a non-voting member of the compensation committee, was kicked out immediately after he threatened to sue, reports the Times.

"Roger has nearly 18 months [left before the contract expires]", Jones said.

The Compensation Committee now consists of Falcons owner Arthur Blank, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, Giants co-owner John Mara, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Steelers owner Art Rooney II, and Texans owner Bob McNair. "We've got all the time in the world to evaluate what we're doing, and all the time in the world to extend him. We just need to slow this train down and have a lot of time to discuss the issues at hand in the National Football League and have a good, fair input from all the owners, which we're not getting".

"The committee is continuing its work towards finalizing a contract extension with the commissioner", he said. "We do not intend to publicly comment on our discussions".

In addition to the cease-and-desist warning, some owners are reportedly discussing a nuclear option - the long-shot possibility of making Jones forfeit his ownership in the Cowboys.

During an appearance on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday, Jones said he has no plans to back off his mission to throw a wrench into the Goodell extension plans and called talk that there could be a push to force him out as owner of the Cowboys "laughable and ridiculous".
