During the season, Jones does a weekly appearance on local radio station 105.3 The Fan. But following this weekend’s playoff loss, the Cowboys team owner abruptly canceled his appearance this week.
Stephen Jones was not on today @kandc1053

“Just got word that Jerry Jones will not be joining us tomorrow morning to recap the season @1053thefan @rjchoppy @BobbyBeltTX @Peyton_Russell1. Stephen Jones was not on today @kandc1053,” host Shan Shariff said on Monday.
Shortly after Shariff broke the news on Twitter, 105.3 The Fan shared a statement on Jones’ absence, revealing that Jones did not provide a reason for canceling his appearance.
“We are not aware of the reasoning behind the cancelations, but the team is conducting end-of-season meetings on Monday at The Star. It’s also certainly possible that the interviews are rescheduled at a later time this week,” 105.3 said in a statement.
As the news of the cancelation hit Twitter, some suggested that the move might be to prepare for some potential staff shakeup later in the week while others simply saw it as a cowardly, sore loser move from Jerry Jones after a frustrating loss. But whatever the reason, people had plenty to say about his absence on Twitter.
What a Surprise. 🤣 Typical, Weak Sauce. 💯 What a reflection of the entire organization. Jerry Jones likes making money 💰 MORE than Winning. 💯 Jerry is a GREAT salesman, terrible Owner/GM. Tell me I’m lying. #FakeMadJJ #DallasCowboys https://t.co/8lxLXrRTRr

Either they were both scared to take the heat from fans and others alike, OR someone maybe getting fired. 🤔 https://t.co/ERwEk2QmHS

One way or another, Jones will likely return to the radio show to recap the season at some point. But it’s clear that it won’t be this week.
