National Football League responds to Jerry Jones's request to hold special owners meeting

NFL Discusses Removal Of Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones, Says He's “Damaging The League” — Report

But two weeks ago, Jones, a nonvoting member of the compensation committee, escalated the dispute when he threatened to sue the league and the six owners on the committee if they did not bend to his will. Early in the season, Jones joined his players, locking arms and kneeling while a flag was unfurled, then standing for the singing of the anthem.

Some say this beef happened all because of the whole the Zeke thing, but Jones has denied that his objections are related to Elliot's suspensions.

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.

It's because Jones sees the Elliott suspension as "an unforgivable breach" of his trust in Goodell.

Someone claims to have broken iPhone X's Face ID security already
Face ID uses artificial intelligence to distinguish real faces from images, videos or masks, but it "learns" a face over time. The company's researchers said that the iPhone X's fingerprint sensor was the most secure biometric security feature.

In his letter from Thursday, Jones offered his most scathing remarks of Goodell yet, writing that the National Football League "has undergone unprecedented upheaval in the last two years, including a significant decline in television ratings, increased advertiser discontent, high-profile litigation concerning player suspensions, and decreasing ticket sales", which have all come under Goodell's watch.

Jones, through a statement issued by the Cowboys on Friday, apologized. "If you think Bob Kraft came after you hard [after the deflate-gate decision], Bob Kraft is a [expletive] compared to what I'm going to do". "I love this league and I love this game". It took 11 years for this thing to escalate to the point that Jones would openly wage war against a contract extension for the commissioner.

"'Roger told me there was nothing to worry about - the evidence just isn't there, '" says a high-level source briefed on the call. "Jerry does more for his players than anyone in the league".

Jones didn't know that Goodell was changing his mind.

Jones had already signed off Goodell's extension with the belief Elliott would be on the field, and was furious with the commissioner.
