Cowboys’ Jerry Jones faces NFL fine for referee’s Halloween costume

Billionaire Jerry Jones’ wallet could become slightly lighter if the NFL decides to fine him for his Halloween costume.

The longtime Dallas Cowboys owner dressed up as a “blind umpire” for Halloween.

The costume featured Jones in a striped umpire shirt, sunglasses and a cane.

The photo of Jones in the outfit was posted on her niece’s social media account.

“Oh yeah, I had the cane and everything,” Jones told Sports Illustrated Sunday in reference to the outfit. “And I’ve used it on some people too.”

Jones didn’t seem to take the suit seriously, but the NFL prohibits coaches and team officials from criticizing referees.

A league memo from 2019 discusses potential penalties for the following:

“Comments regarding the quality of officiating, individual calls or missed calls, the League’s refereeing department, a team of officials or an individual match official; [a]accuse game officials of acting biased or in any way questioning the integrity of NFL game officials; Where [p]post negative or derogatory/degrading content regarding the refereeing on social media.”

It’s possible the league considers Jones’ costume a violation of certain criteria when it comes to referees.

The NFL has often been dubbed the “No Fun League”, mostly because of its history of enforcing restrictions, even where many have argued a softer approach should have been taken.

Jones’ son, who is the CEO and executive vice president of the Cowboys, wants the league to show humor.

“They have a really tough job in real time,” Stephen Jones told “The K&C Masterpiece” on Monday. “I think they understand you can have a little humor with that stuff, but I can’t imagine they think there’s only respect that comes out of the Cowboys organization. in terms of how difficult their job is and what a good job they do too.”

On the field, the Cowboys (6-2) have won two straight, and starting quarterback Dak Prescott recently returned from a finger injury.

Dallas is looking to keep pace with the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East and has a Week 9 bye.
