Jerry Jones Halloween

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones may find himself in hot water with the NFL after wearing a blind referee costume with glasses and a cane for Halloween. The NFL usually doesn’t take too kindly to jokes by NFL team officials or players at the expense of referees.

When asked by a reporter why he wore that costume over the weekend, Jones didn’t seem to take it too seriously. In fact, he said imitation is the highest form of flattery.

“I had a lot of fun,” he said. “I’m being very careful here because I’m getting real close to a fine. It shows how much I love them to dress up as them…how much I respect their decision-making.”

Not sure the NFL will accept Jones’s explanation but at least he is aware of the possibility that he may see a fine coming his way because of the joke.
The NFL is not known for having a good sense of humor when it comes to these types of things.
Legendary Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon battled with the late NFL commissioner Pete Rozelle about wearing a headband during a game. Despite being fined, McMahon kept doing it. When he was a wide receiver, Chad Johnson altered his uniform before an NFL game, the NFL levied a huge fine against him.
Given that he’s a billionaire, whatever fine the NFL levied on him would likely be negligible anyway.
