As initially reported by our Matt Barrie, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones had a bit of trouble getting into the visitors locker room at the Georgia Dome following his team’s 19-13 loss to the Falcons there on Sunday night.
The report soon took on a life of its own, as writers across the country speculated as to why the Cowboys’ head honcho might have been kept from the team--were they tired of Jones’ intrusive nature as owner, and giving him the cold shoulder?
According to Stephen Jones, absolutely not. Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Monday that the locker room incident was all just a big misunderstanding.
“I was right there,” the Cowboys executive vice president explained, via the Dallas Morning News. “What they do is they hold the door because there’s media and there’s different people coming in and out. He hit the door and said, ‘It’s Jerry’ and they didn’t realize it was him, and then they let him in.
“Obviously, they didn’t know that it was him. Once they figured out it was him, they let him right in. But there was nothing contentious or anything like that. It was just not knowing that he was the one trying to get in the door.”
