Jerry Jones Qualifies Earlier Comments On Thursday NFL Games
Published October 18, 2013
A Jones statement sent on Friday afternoon from the team characterizes the Thursday plans this way: “The league has not been in discussions about a Thursday night doubleheader package. Those were my thoughts. We are focused on further building Thursday night as a night for NFL football, but it has not involved the concept of a doubleheader package.” Similarly, Eagles President Don Smolenski on CNBC today talked about Thursday being a “destination night for football.” A Cowboys spokesperson said it is Jones’ job as Chair to come up with ideas for the committee, but that the Thursday night doubleheader concept is not at the committee stage.
