No offense taken.
That was the response from Miami Dolphins czar Bill Parcells, when Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones phoned to apologize for an expletive-laden video that recently went viral. In it, Jones takes shots at Parcells and University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow.
"I know how he really feels about me," Parcells told Bergen Record reporter Vinny DiTrani.
"I think he was just pulling some guy's leg. I’m not upset with it at all. He didn't mean it."
Parcells coached the Cowboys from 2003 through 2006, compiled a 34-30 record and reached the playoffs twice. Parcells hasn't been a head coach since, joining the Dolphins front office at the end of the 2007 season.
ESPN's Ed Wereder reported Thursday that Jones felt badly about the video and called Parcells. The video appears to have been shot surreptitiously with a cell phone and without Jones' knowledge.
The video is too ribald to be linked to on a family blog, but here's an edited version of what Jones said.
"Bill's not worth a [expletive]," Jones said. He later added "to get this [expletive] stadium, I need to bring his [butt] in."
As for Tebow, Jones said he wouldn't get on the field for the Cowboys.
