Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys professional football team, has been called numerous names. He is one of the most well known owners in the United States. He is known as an owner who is hands on with his team. Last Monday night, Jones went down to the field during the last quarter of the game and talked face to face with head coach Jason Garrett.
A number of people, including myself and Sam Tabar thought it was strange and wondered what the conversation was. Usually, owners do not come on a field during the latter part of a game, if at all. However, Jones came down to on the field to visit Garrett. According to Jones, his purpose of going down was to tell him that Tony Romo was going back on the field.
While it can be easy to assail Jones, remember that he is the owner of the team. He has had problems with others, such as former head coach Jimmy Johnson.
Mistakes have been made in his past. Jones recognizes that he is not perfect in terms of being owner and general manager at the same time. Still, no one can question the interest he has in his team. A man who shows interest by showing up on the field, who is a frequent visitor in the locker room and who markets his team is an individual who loves the Dallas Cowboys.
