JONES STILL WANTS COWBOYS TO STAY AWAY FROM TEAM CAFE

          Owners of the Cowboy's Sports Cafe, including former
     Cowboys Tony Dorsett and Everson Walls, "are pleading with"
     Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones to lift the ban of Cowboys players
     from the restaurant, as business "is down $50,000 a month"
     since Jones imposed the ban, according to Tony Hartzel of
     the DALLAS MORNING NEWS.  As recently as last week, cafe
     owners "had hoped to resolve the matter" without filing a
     lawsuit, and just before the owners "planned to remove the
     Cowboy's sign as part of a tentative agreement, the deal
     fell apart."  Dorsett says the ban is "unfairly singling"
     out the restaurant and hurting business.  But Jones said
     that the team still uses the Cafe and "maintains a positive
     relationship with the former players" (MORNING NEWS, 11/15).
          KEEPING UP WITH MR. JONES: Jones said that he will take
     a "more active role in a hybrid" coach/GM capacity next
     season.  Jones: "I won't do any head coaching.  I can see me
     being more productive and involved on game day being in the
     coaches box" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 11/15)....Jones was
     profiled by Todd Shapera in the FINANCIAL TIMES under the
     header, "The Creaking House That Jerry Built" (11/15).
