    IRVING -- The video clip of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' brief sideline interaction with quarterback Tony Romo late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 34-30 loss to Detroit has made its rounds the last two days.

    "No, that's ridiculous. Not at all," Jones said Tuesday morning on his weekly radio show on KRLD-FM 105.3. "What all I was doing on the sideline was hollering at the offense that we're going to get it back and when we get it back, let's win the game. Nothing like that."

    Jones was then asked about why he goes onto the sideline during games in the first place and if he regrets doing that at times.

    I have no problem with him going down there. It's his money his investment his team. I see Arthur Blank on the sidelines and no one says a word about it. He put his money into this team and stadium he is just trying to support his guys.

    I have a problem with it and here is why: He said "I've been going down there since we won Super Bowls, so I know it works"

    That is my problem...he thinks his presence affects the outcomes of games...and my gosh that is just crossing the line to me. To continue to act like he can do ANYTHING he wants because it is his team is just ludicrous. Of course he can do ANYTHING he wants...but that does not mean you do it. He has done it HIS way since he fired Jimmy...and the results speak for themselves. It undermines the presence of the coach. And I don't care what ANYONE says. Of course the degree differs based on who the coach is, but the bottom line is his presence let's everyone know who the boss is...and in the heat of the game..the only boss the players need to be focused on are coaches and/or leaders on the team!

    I never had an issue with him doing it before and I still don't. If I put that kind of money into a team I would go down to the sidelines anytime I damn well pleased.

    That doesn't set well with some people, and that is perfectly fine, but that's just how I'd see it as well.

    Well its not changing. Like I said its his money and his team. He doesn't live by anyone's rules but his own.. rightfully so... I see no problem supporting his team and trying to pump a deflated sideline. No one else is. You put the money he has into it and tell me you wouldn't do it either.

    If I put the kind of money he has put into Romo, Ware, Garrett, Miles, Newman, Witten, etcc...No I do not feel as if I should have to pump them up during the game. He is not a fan. Football is not like any other business. He has highly paid coaches and players that need to do this. And the leadership reigns of this team have ALWAYS been shaky because Jones upstages all of them. If he could, he would take the headset and call plays, sell the popcorn, sell beer, give pre-game speech, give post-game speech, drive people home, tuck them to bed etc....

    I just want to point out that he never said it works. He just likes it down there. I would too. Lots of owners do it. No big deal.

    On the nosey.

    I really wish he'd just shut up. He sounds like such an idiot.

    Yes Jerry, you going down on the sidelines had an impact on the team winning three Super Bowls....but hasn't since.

    He's reading Karma? THat's not even the correct use of the word. What an idiot.

    JJ is a football idiot and everyone except JJ and a few apologists know it
    he is also the owner of the cowboys so unfortunately we have to deal with it

    This story really increased my 100% conviction that the media is digging deep to just find anything to talk about...

    It's clear to the blind that he did not snub him...
    JJ was cheering the guys..
    passed Romo, who apparently wasn't paying attention,
    then when TR realized he tried a last second quick handshake..

    Makes one appreciate the pros for having to live with this media idiocy

    :cool:

    the issue is...should the QB be worried about whether or not he "dissed" the owner before taking the field for perhaps a last second game winning drive? We are all entitled to out opinion, but I cannot understand how anyone thinks this is NORMAL!

    I'm with you, I also don't think it makes an impact good or bad.

    It's his team and he can do what he wants, but I don't think he should be down there either.
    Football gets heated, and players say things that they may regret. Saying it to your coach who understands the game-time pressures you're under is one thing. Cussing your parents is another. I consider an owner like a parent.
    He shouldn't be on the field because he may be in the line of fire of some things he doesn't want to hear. Even though I may disagree with the language, players need to be free to be who they are without someone looking over their shoulders, especially when they're playing during game time.
