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).
