JONES STILL WANTS COWBOYS TO STAY AWAY FROM TEAM CAFE
Published November 17, 1997
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).
