Untitled[edit]

Currently Jerry Jones is involved in an elaborate attempt to dupe the citizens of Arlington, Texas into funding a new stadium for the Dallas Cowboys. This will cost the taxpayers of Arlington well over $600 million dollars in the next 30 years. At the current time Jones's wealth is estimated to be in the range of 1 billion dollars.

He may be attempting to convince Arlington to fund something. The value of the statdium for the city may be disputable. Neutral Point of View please. TomCerul 15:03, 21 Sep 2004 (UTC)

perhaps: Currently (September, 2004) Jerry Jones is attempting to convince the citizens of Arlington, Texas to fund a new stadium for the Dallas Cowboys. The estimated cost to the taxpayers of Arlington is over $600 million dollars spread over the next 30 years.

The value to the city of this new stadium is disputed by some. At the current time (September, 2004) Jones's wealth is estimated to be in the range of 1 billion dollars.

Actually the stadium deal passed. So the above paragraphs are pointless.

This article is full of weasel words, inaccuracies and unsourced statements which are not NPOV. It should be tagged as such. MerrimacVI (talk) 00:36, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Jerry Jones wiki entry[edit]

needs to have mention of his history with the Arkansas Razorbacks. I THINK he was on the 1964 team that won a NCAA national Championship, maybe even the QB.

I don't know. I'd be willing to do the work. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.202.13.24 (talk) 02:38, 27 April 2008 (UTC)

Needs to have comments about why he didn't serve in Vietnam, having graduated college as a healthy athelete in 1965. Especially given his recent involvement in the National Anthem kneeling story, it would be good to understand why he didn't serve. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Majwilsionlion (talkcontribs) 17:46, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Dallas Cowboys[edit]

First line says "In 1989, Jones purchased the Cowboys from Tex Shramm." But it was Bum Bright who owned the team, wasn't it? Tex was just the GM. -StevoDog21 (talk) 00:02, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

Good pick up! I fixed this. Wow one of the Cowboys many pages I check for accuracy and vandalism and this slipped right past me... -bigcats_lair (talk), 18 October 2009 —Preceding undated comment added 17:11, 18 October 2009 (UTC).

I don't think the following statement is accurate: "Johnson was eventually forced out in 1994". Jimmy Johnson in fact, resigned. If it was a forced resignation, then that should be sourced. Otherwise, the article should just state that Johnson resigned. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.101.40.165 (talk) 02:17, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

One of his more infamous but less well known quotes was: On Troy Aikman: "All I can say right now is that he [Troy Aikman] looks good in the shower," http://www.fannation.com/si_blogs/for_the_record/posts/30571-the-list-five-most-infamous-jerry-jones-comments#ixzz149luxUGt

He also stated that "He's [Felix Jones Dallas Cowboys Runningback] got one of those nice bubble butts" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.214.204.246 (talk) 19:59, 2 November 2010 (UTC)
