Jerry Jones: Regular refs 'make a lot of mistakes,' too

By Tim MacMahon

Jerry Jones certainly isn't going to say anything to give up a lick of leverage as the NFL heads back to the negotiating table with its locked-out officials.

In fact, Jones fired a shot at the referees during his Friday radio show.

“As long as it’s consistent, then how it affects the outcome of the games really may not be as much,” Dallas Cowboys owner Jones said on KRLD-FM. “The important people out there are the players and the coaches and the fans, and they’ll all be there. They’ll all be there.

"The officials that are out there are going to make mistakes, but believe you me, the officials that would be there if we got this resolved will make a lot of mistakes.”
