    Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones among the most disliked people in sports

    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.

    I could see some Cowboy fans agreeing with Jones being on the list, but nationally? stupid if you ask me....IMO, just another example of someone trying to sell their product by attaching America's team to it....the hits just keep on coming!

    Not surprising. I wish he and his family had nothing to do with the football side of this team.

    That is stupid. I don't think there is another owner whom players and explayers like more than Jerry. The fact that 3 hall of fame players have asked him to deliver their hof introduction speeches speaks for itself and says a lot about the type of man he is.

    He pays and often overpays for them. He is a very loyal boss for his players. If I played for him I'd love him too. That he was asked to present a player for the HOF has nothing to do with his overall likability.

    Maybe I missed it, but where is Jerry on that list?

    Oh, and Skip likely wears his listing as a badge of honor.

    I understand why Cowboys Fans who wish to field a winning team would dislike Jones, but fans of other teams should be ecstatic he is running the Cowboys.

    The list is hilarious. SI doesn't even explain what parameters they used to conduct the poll. It's... *drumroll* THE MOST DISLIKED PEOPLE IN SPORTS! Along with Satan Jerry Jones, they have Julie Hermann. I'm like, "Who's Julie Hermann?" One of the things putting her on the list was bad mouthing a newspaper. Putting ESPN guys in the list? lol. I saw red when I caught Sebastian Vettel's name on the list. Of course, I don't know who the heck Vettel was until I read Si's description of his dislike.

    I think SI threw a bunch of names in a hat, poured the hat out, and threw together a list. Jones was an easy choice for the list. Twenty years after he passes away, some guy in East Texas will wake up in a cold sweat screaming Jones's name. Folks just can't wrap their minds around Jones. However, the entire list is something. Sure, Sterling makes perfect sense. Players, fans, media, interest groups, etc., have made his name mud. The NFL makes up a good fraction of the sports world. In the NFL, Goodell gets automatic blame, while the owners, who are the real power behind him that authorize league changes, don't. Soccer doesn't mean a thing to me, but the rest of the world goes nuts over the sport. I can only assume Luis Suarez and John Terry are dirt to soccer fans. I don't know. The list as a whole is kinda quirky.
