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.
"Do you know that I was dressed up as a blind official? I had a lot of fun," Jerry Jones says of Halloween costume. "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." pic.twitter.com/9lMBVVUhOw
