It appears that the league is against Jerry Jones, more than usual.
When it comes to the NFL, the Cowboys owner has had his fair share of disagreements. One of which is the ongoing court case with his All-Pro running back, Ezekiel Elliott.
Jones has said numerous times that Elliott is not getting a fair treatment in his case.
Elliott never had any charges brought up in the court of law, but the league continued their own investigation of a past domestic violence allegation from July of 2016. They would eventually hand Elliott a six-game suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.
There are multiple owners that are looking of the league to punish the Cowboys owner. This is all due to his dispute with Roger Goodell (via Bleacher Report).
Some of the penalties that the owners are looking at range from draft picks to a fine (via Mark Maske).
“Sources say some owners are urging consideration of a variety of penalties if Jerry Jones persists including fine, suspension or loss of draft pick or picks for Cowboys. These sources stopped short of mentioning forcing Jones to sell as Pro Football Talk reported Sunday night.”

Jones continues to fight the contract extension for Goodell. He says that it’s about the power that he has as the commissioner. That is showing with the suspension to Elliott.
Elliott is getting this treatment because of what had happened in the past with players and domestic violence. Jones believes that Elliott is getting this “over treatment” because of what had happened with Ray Rice a few years back.
Do you think Jerry Jones will get punished by the league? If so, what do you think it will be?
