In the last few days before the negotiations on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement broke down, it has been reported that Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones, made some extremely offensive comments and gestures that could label him as a huge jerk in the proceedings.

Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson got up to leave with Jones in a sign of unity but New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, who has come across as a reasonable guy who honestly wants to get this deal done, convinced him to stay in the room.
