When does Jerry Jones get Ring call?
By Todd Archer
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Over the years, some people have pleaded with Jerry Jones to change the selection process to the Ring of Honor.
They mentioned having fellow Ring of Honor members vote or the team’s Hall of Famers have a vote. There has been consideration to have a media vote, too, according to the Cowboys owner and general manager.
But Jones said he is following Tex Schramm’s orders and keeping it a committee of one.
So will Jones have to retire before he is added to the Ring of Honor?
“I ask for the vote in the mirror and I can’t get the vote,” Jones joked. “He won’t agree. He knows too much.”
While Jones has infuriated some since he bought the team in 1989 there is no doubting he has added to the team’s cache on and off the field. The Cowboys won three Super Bowls in the 1990s, are considered one of the most famous franchise’s in the world and play in what is considered the finest stadium in the world.
