Default PFT: NFL might force Jerruh Out

Mostly just a rumor and speculation, but wow:

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...h-jerry-jones/

Quote:
A league source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that multiple owners already have been discussing the possibility, which flows from Article VIII of the NFL’s Constitution & Bylaws. Specifically, Section 8.13 authorizes the Commissioner to determine that an owner “has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football.” If the Commissioner believes the available sanction (a $500,000 fine) is “not adequate or sufficient,” the Commissioner may refer the issue to the NFL’s Executive Committee, which has the power to compel “[c]ancellation or forfeiture of the franchise in the League of any member club involved or implicated,” with a directive to sell the team.

It’s obviously an extreme outcome, and it surely would trigger years of litigation. But the possibility has emerged primarily because Jones has opted to take family business outside the family. As the source explained it, the primary affront comes from the belief among owners that Jones instigated Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter to disparage the NFL, blaming league leadership for ratings declines and, in turn, a reduction in Papa John’s revenues.

Bowen's tweet put it succinctly - Goodell has issues, but the other owners don't want the NFL to be run by Jerry Jones and if he gets his way he's effectively the one in charge.

Yeah this sounds like an empty threat leaked to try to send a message to Jones.

Such an effort would destroy the NFL as we know it. Theres no way they kill the golden goose simply to keep Goddell. The more rational owners would not allow for this.

Do they really want to hand the league over to Jones though?

Saw this earlier on CSN then checked out some sites, it's brought on by Arthur Blank and all the other owners are in his corner, I would laugh my ass off if they forced him to sell. But then we would have to deal with Mark Cuban you know he would be the buyer.
