Jerry Jones Thinks NFL Players Should Get Off Their Knees, Literally
With Kneel-DownGate in full force (can we stop adding “gate” to scandals already?), voices from left and right are swooping in to give their two cents. And because he has more cents to give than anyone, Jerry Jones has thrown his 10-gallon hat into the ring. What does he have to say: The NFL should eradicate kneel-down plays entirely. Yeesh.
You see, deep in the heart of Texas (clap clap clap clap), them fellas don’t like kneel-downs. It’s a wasted play for the boys and girls who payed money to enter Jerry’s house and see themselves a football game. Weird, because Jerry can’t get enough of people getting on their knees for him. Via ESPN.com:
“I’ve always thought that that’s a wasted play for our fans, the kneel-down,” Jones said Tuesday on KRLD-FM. “[Former Kansas City Chiefs owner] Lamar Hunt tried several times to introduce a rule and have it voted on that you couldn’t kneel down. You had to run a play. Unless you were trying to advance the ball, then you got a penalty and time didn’t run off the clock. It’s not a good play.”
In Jerry Jones’ world (his actual world, not that silly nickname for his stadium), the NFL would be like on giant game of Madden. Teams could always run up the score (they would be encouraged to), and punting would definitely be eliminated, considering that dastardly scoreboard of his is always getting in the way of those nuisances anyway.
I’m just not so sure about your idea though, Jerry. I mean, it’s one or two measly plays at the end of the game. At that point, most of the fans are on their way out of the stadium anyway. And you know better than most that sometimes fans need to get a head start to beat the traffic leaving the stadium. No, it’s not necessarily a good play, but it’s a football necessity.
