Jimmy Johnson says Jerruh Jones "comes across as a rich a–hole"

But Johnson made his feelings known to West after reading the piece. "About like I expected," Johnson said in an e-mail. "Jerry comes across as a rich a–hole." Jones has always been more partial to "glory hole," but it’s obvious these two have no use for each other. It’s almost like there was a little too much testosterone (or something) in the room for these two to ever co-exist for long.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Camo goes with anything.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. is a huge Redskins fan and continues to show it on twitter every week. Here's a camo Redskins helmet that he just had to share with the world. He also spoke out today in support of Lache "Superior" Seastrunk. https://twitter.com/DaleJr/status/505710687210176512

Adrian Peterson, Johnny Football, and Jerry the Football Man

In his suite during the George Strait concert, Jones introduces me to Romo, who asks the subject of this story. Jones answers for me: "Passin' on Manziel for Romo." The surprise decision reveals something not widely understood about his boss, Romo says: He selected a sound fundamentals player needed to improve the offense, not the high-risk matinee idol of the draft. "More than anything," Romo explains, "it just shows a lot of people that we're here to win -- not just be a flashy program." Jones is beaming. He returns the sell: "And what is amazing," Jones says, "if there's anybody on this planet that could've handled Manziel competin' with him ..." Jones drapes his left arm on Romo's right shoulder. "This guy could handle any damn thing -- this is your fighter pilot. This is your fighter pilot. This is the guy you want goin' in, droppin' and winkin' at 'em, and comin' out, and drinkin' beer. This is him. So he could handle it. It wasn't a question of not handlin' it." The analogy, such as it is, puts a smile on Romo's face. He takes a long pull on his Miller Lite bottle. But during our initial conversation at the Ritz-Carlton several weeks earlier, Jones spoke longingly about Manziel's potential benefits to the Cowboys long term. "If we had picked Manziel, he'd guarantee our relevance for 10 years," Jones says. America's Team needed Johnny Manziel to be ... relevant?

Roger Goodell: I Didn't Get Ray Rice Punishment Right

"I take responsibility both for the decision and for ensuring that our actions in the future properly reflect our values. I didn't get it right," Goodell wrote. "Simply put, we have to do better." The commissioner also outlined the new domestic abuse policy, which includes a six-game suspension for a first-time offender and a lifetime ban for a second-time offender. "Violations of the Personal Conduct Policy regarding assault, battery, domestic violence and sexual assault that involve physical force will be subject to enhanced discipline. A first offense will be subject to a suspension of six weeks without pay. Mitigating circumstances will be considered, and more severe discipline will be imposed if there are aggravating circumstances such as the presence or use of a weapon, choking, repeated striking, or when the act is committed against a pregnant woman or in the presence of a child. A second offense will result in banishment from the league; an offender may petition for reinstatement after one year but there is no assurance that the petition will be granted. These disciplinary consequences apply to all NFL personnel."

Cowboys DB Jakar Hamilton suspended 4 games

+

The Dallas Cowboys' defense was dealt another frustrating blow Thursday, as safety Jakar Hamilton was suspended four games by the NFL for violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Hamilton, who is entering his second season in the league, was undrafted out of South Carolina State. He was signed by Dallas in April 2013, waived in August and then signed to the practice squad, eventually suiting up in three games for the Cowboys last season.

Adrian Peterson tells Jerry Jones he wants to be a Cowboy. Tampering Violation?

"Well, we'll see what we can do, if we can make that happen," Jones, who is also the Cowboys' general manager, told Peterson. "Hmm hmm ... I'd like that, too ... Well, we're talking pig Latin here, but let's see if we can do that ... We're talking pig Latin here, but let's see what we can do about that. OK, Adrian, thanks." The NFL's rules on player tampering lay out specific steps to take if a team is contacted by a player who is under contract with another team: "... the contacted club must immediately report such contact to the owner or operating head of the club which holds the player's rights." Failure to do so can result in "severe" penalties from the commissioner's office.

Fred Davis' Assault Charges Dropped by Prosecutors

12

Prosecutors said there was "insufficient evidence" to take the case forward, according to Bill Miller, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office. A hearing in the case was still scheduled for Thursday. At the time of his first court appearance, Davis’s attorney, William Martin, maintained that his client was innocent and Davis’s former girlfriend was trying to "get back" at him and that there was no assault. After surrendering to police and appearing in court in leg and ankle shackles last month, Davis entered a plea of not guilty. http://www.hogshaven.com/2014/7/23/5930209/fred-davis-is-a-wanted-man-Redskins

Meet the Redskins fan responsible for the Homer Simpson-RGIII haircut

"That was something I just put together on Monday," Cruz, who runs Cruz Cutz Barbershop in Moline, Ill., told me. "I saw a picture of Homer Simpson saluting like RGIII does and just incorporated a jersey on there. I mean, ‘The Simpsons’ are running all day right now on FX and football is about to start, so the timing was perfect." Cruz has lived in Illinois his entire life, but he grew up a Redskins fan because his dad was a fan of the team. Cruz said he suggested the Homer-RGIII mashup to a friend whose hair he experiments with regularly.
