Jerry Jones Reignites Feud w/ Jimmy Johnson Over Ring of Honor Induction

The feud between Jerry Jones and Jimmy Johnson is nearly 30 years old now and yet always seems to find ways to circle back into discussion. This time it was the owner who threw gas back on the fire, getting hostile when pressed about why the legendary Dallas hadn’t yet been inducted into the Ring of Honor.

During an this past weekend at the Cowboys in , CA, Jones took a somewhat defiant tone when Newy Scruggs of NBC 5 DFW questioned Johnson’s continued absence from the team’s personal .

Kevin Gray Jr. on Twitter: “Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to @newyscruggs on it seeming very petty that Jimmy Johnson isn’t in the Ring of Honor: “I get to make that decision. It isn’t at the end of the day all tailored around whether Jimmy is sniveling or not.” 👀 (🎥: @NBCDFWSports) #CowboysNation pic.twitter.com/wQCuxfpaSE / Twitter”

To be fair, Jerry may have been reacting a bit to Scruggs’ accusation of ongoing pettiness in the situation. But if Jones felt at all insulted by the remark, imagine how Jimmy must feel after nearly three decades.

Johnson has watched as nearly all of the superstar players he coached in Dallas have been inducted: , , , , and . Even one who came after Jimmy’s departure, , has since been added to the Ring.

With the next wave of , , , and others potentially on the way, Johnson’s time has been long overdue.

While there was a long period of tangible animosity between Jerry and Jimmy, things seemed to be softening in recent years. Almost exactly one year ago, Jones was singing a much different tune when sitting next to Johnson and Aikman during the Hall of Fame festivities in Canton.

Were those just words? Did something happen in between that’s changed Jerry’s stance?

Again, maybe the comments last weekend were not indicative of his true intentions. Jones may have simply been caught off and responded poorly.

Nevertheless, once again we find ourselves wondering if Jimmy Johnson will ever take his rightful place with as the two greatest coaches in franchise . Johnson personally coached the team to two championships in the 90s and was the architect of the 1995 team as well.

While it’s hard to imagine Johnson never getting into the Ring of Honor, it would be nice if it didn’t happen over Jerry Jones’ dead body. of the 90s would love to see the hatchet truly buried between the two.

But at the current rate, who really knows?

What do you think?

  1. I’m so sick of Jerry Jones’ decrepit and hateful ass still running this franchise into the ground. Keep the crocodile tears Crypt Keeper. This petty shit is one of several reasons we remain a laughing stock of the league. Jerral is Nero playing his fiddle while this team burns to the ground.
    Lose me completely if you want to reply with “oh, but the team is worth $7.6B!”
    We have won NOTHING since 1995!!
    I wish for one month during the regular season, every Dallas Cowboys fan around the world would stop watching, attending Cowboys games and stop paying for any merch until the Jones’ dismiss themselves as Pres/VP/GM and any other position involving the players and stick to promoting the team and signing checks.

  2. Jimmy built all 3 Super Bowl Teams. Jerry is 0-26 in even reaching the NFC title game without Jimmy’s players. I believe he has 3 pathetic Wild Card wins in 26 years. Great owner, weak GM
