DMN: Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones among the most disliked people in sports Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones among the most disliked people in sports By Jon Machota 1:43 pm on May 16, 2014 Jerry Jones is guilty of owning a franchise that has a .500 record over the last 17 years. And during that time, the Dallas Cowboys have remained arguably the most popular organization in professional sports. Apparently that’s enough to make folks dislike him. Jones hasn’t been recorded making outrageous racist statements, he hasn’t been accused of using performance-enhancing drugs and he hasn’t bullied a Cowboys player to the point that they quit mid-season. But he again made SI.com’s list of the 35 most disliked people in sports. “The outspoken Jones was named Least Favorite Sports Personality in a 2003 SI poll,” the description read next to Jones’ picture. “Over a decade later, Jones hasn’t missed a beat — continuing to promote ‘America’s Team’ to the media and making many splashy personnel decisions without much success to show for it.” Donald Sterling, Alex Rodriguez, Richie Incognito and Lance Armstrong were some of the others to make the cut.
