Jerry Jones is Not as Powerful as He Thought: In another sign of how badly Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones lost his war with Roger Goodell, the NFL commissioner is about to drop a multi-million fine on Jones. Goodell has the power to do this for conduct he considers detrimental to the league, such as threatening to sue the compensation committee of owners deciding Goodell's contract renewal.

I thought Jones was powerful after the L.A. relocations. Looks like he did too.

If Goodell drops millions in fines on him, Jones will look like a whipped dog.

I don't see that as a viable status quo because of the ego damage to Jones, but what can he do?

Will offset some of the Goodell contract $$$...

Can Dallas package the fines with Dez Bryant's contract and a high draft choice and deal them to Cleveland?

Goodell deserves every penny he makes simply for having to deal with the gigantic egos of the many entitled rich owners who feel they are beyond reproach because of their wealth.
