Everything is bigger in Texas. Included the little white lies.
Cowboy's salesman Stephen Jones, son of owner Jerry Jones, made a broad proclamation to defend the concept Jerry still wants to win.
"He would give up the hall of Fame for a second to have another Lombardi Trophy," said Stephen Jones at 105.3 The Fan, via Jon Machota of Dallas Morning News .
It sounds admirable. The only problem is that it is directly contrary to Jerry's own words.
Speaking to Mark Leibovich in connection with Big Game Leibovich's outstanding NFL-foreign-fiction-fiction-fiction look to the league Jerry Jones left no doubt whether he would give up his gold jacket for a fourth silver trophy .
Although Jones said he had forked over $ 250 million for another Super Bowl win, the bronze bridge would be a bridge too far.  "Would he change his Hall of Fame jacket to another ring?" Leibovich writes. "No," Jones said finally. & # 39; No. & # 39; "
The whole question is academic, because a Super Bowl prize cannot be bought or exchanged. The fact that Jones has gone well over a generation without getting one, clearly shows it.
