Jerry Jones on Salary Cap, CBA Negotiations: "It Doesn't Always Be The Way You Want It To Be"
And here you thought the NFL lockout was over. Not hardly: As Peter King puts it this morning, yesterday's Sure Thing turned into Sour Grapes rather quickly, with the players refusing to sign off on the owners' done deal. Jerry Jones, in the SI.com piece, had no comment about the new-but-not-signed collective bargaining agreement as he left the hotel yesterday. But before then, when things were looking better, he spoke to at least a couple of folks about the agreement -- specifically, revenue sharing and how the Dallas Cowboys would handle the hard salary cap.
I found the video, shot by Sporting News Radio's Nubyjas Wilborn, on YouTube this morning; posted at around midnight, it's also appeared on DCFanatic, which summarizes: "Jerry didn't sound all that sympathetic for the legend players who are getting peanuts for pensions." If nothing else, it's ear candy for those who enjoy unexpurgated Jerruh.
