THE GAMBLER: JONES CONTEMPLATES COUNTERSUIT AGAINST NFL
Published October 4, 1995
Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones said his second meeting with NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue and the executive council of NFL Properties will determine whether or not he files a countersuit, according to the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Jones: "I'm probably going to be taking the next step no matter what happens. ... It will be a very productive meeting because it will dictate to a large degree what I do over the next few days with regard to litigation with the NFL." The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday at an undisclosed location (Ed Werder, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 10/4). Jones also adds: "This potentially has more interest than the labor agreement or anything because it transcends the sports page" (Dave Sell, WASHINGTON POST, 10/4). CALL BILLY PAYNE: An editorial in AD AGE notes that with Jerry Jones, the NFL and NFL Properties are "getting a taste" of a problem that plagues Olympic organizers: ambush marketing (AD AGE, 10/2 issue). INSTANT REPLAY: A report in the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER notes a formal vote on bringing back instant replay "seems inevitable" next March at the NFL owners meeting in Palm Beach. Browns Owner Art Modell: "The bottom line is it's there for 40 million people to watch on television. Right now, they're seeing what we can't correct, and that's not good for anybody" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 10/4).
