Jerry Jones apologizes for racially insensitive remark

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

Which kind of makes you wonder, why is Jerry Jones the only owner publicly making these points?

When contacted later by CBS 11, Jones apologized for his comment.

"That comment was inappropriate", he said in a statement obtained by Dallas Morning News.

The video, which was reportedly taken after Jones was asked to provide a videotaped message to a woman who was about to get married, shows the 75-year-old saying the following: "Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding".

SADC troika calls extraordinary summit on Zimbabwe
The military remained in the streets of Harare yesterday as Southern African regional officials were meeting on the crisis. The party said it rejects calls to offer Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe political asylum in South Africa.

Although Jones voted with the rest of the owners to extend Goodell's contract, he says the negotiations "have gone beyond the scope of what was discussed and authorized" when the unanimous decision was made in May.

But the ESPN article alleges that after Goodell informed Jones that Dallas running back Ezekiel Elliott was receiving a six-game suspension for being accused of domestic violence (he was not charged), Jones told Goodell, "I'm gonna come after you with everything I have".

Jones did not talk about it directly in a radio interview on Friday.

The camera then cuts to a black man standing off camera who laughs after an extended pause.

"I won't cast judgment, on one moment when a joke went south, to capture who this man represents in a lifetime commitment of love and compassion to all ethnicities", Sanders told the Star-Telegram.

It was given to the gossip website theblast.com because of the current climate of race in National Football League and because the source of the video thought it was important to see. Early Friday, ESPN posted a thoroughly reported piece on the escalating feud between Jones and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and the "all-out civil war" brewing between ownership and league executives.

"We've got all the time in the world to evaluate what we're doing", Jones said. So because of that, the league sent a letter to Jones' attorney accusing the Cowboys owner of conduct detrimental to the league's best interests.
