Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has finally commented, albeit briefly, on the photos published last week by TerezOwens.com of him and two females, later identified as Dallas area strippers, showing the three is some pretty sexually suggestive positions at a Dallas restaurant.
The photos were released by Dallas resident Frank Hoover, who claims he received the photos ‘from people who wanted to blackmail Jones,’ he wrote in a weird and twisted manifesto.
“Someone has misrepresented photos taken at a restaurant five years ago for their own purposes, and so I’m just not going to comment,” Jones said Sunday, via ESPN’s Todd Archer.
This is Jones’ first encounter with the media since the photo flap as he was ducking reporters all last week. He was present on the sidelines for the Cowboys’ preseason opener against the San Diego Chargers on Thursday, but wasn’t available to the media.
In another Cowboys-related scandal, Jones did give his thoughts on the NFL’s head of officiating, Dean Blandino, hanging out with Cowboys staff including Jerry Jones Jr., on the team bus as the party was seen entering and leaving an L.A. nightclub.
“I just don’t have a problem with it at all,” he said, “and I don’t deem it inappropriate at all. Part of Blandino’s job during the offseason is to network with the clubs; that’s a good thing. Officiating is doing a good job, and I just don’t have a problem with that. As you know, our bus is an area that we entertain, and that’s what we do. So I just don’t have a problem with that.”
