First rule: Don't talk about Dez Rules
IRVING, Texas -- Jerry Jones, one of the most powerful men in professional sports, sounds wishy-washy these days.
That's what happens when you can't figure out whether to tell some of the truth, all of the truth or lie about the Dez Rules.
|ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM's Ian Fitzsimmons joined ESPN Radio's "Mike And Mike" to talk about the Dez Rules. |
Then Jerry went on KRLD-AM in Dallas on Tuesday and suggested the Dez Rules didn't actually exist.
Can you say poppycock?
Heck, Jason Garrett acknowledged the rules existed at his Monday news conference and said they were designed to make Bryant accountable.
"I'm not going to discuss any of the rules, because that implies that there are a certain set of rules," Jones said on the show. "I don't know that that's correct, either.
"So really, just by the nature of it, it's not one that you would really discuss. We have rules of behavior in the NFL and we have rules of behavior with the Cowboys as well. So I'm not so sure there's been any new rule created here."
