What with his penchant for being in the spotlight, and never being shy about discussing his team, many Dallas Cowboys fans are of the opinion that owner and general manager Jerry Jones can be a distraction for the team--at least to some degree.
The players see it differently.
In an appearance on the Talk of Fame Show last Friday, Cowboys veteran tight end Jason Witten told the hosts that he and his teammates are just fine with Jones’s visibility, and that his approach to ownership doesn’t serve as any kind of distraction.
“It really doesn’t. I know it’s a little bit of a cliché when players say that, but he’s extremely loyal,” Witten said of Jones, via the Dallas Morning News. “The passion that he brings every day. I think it’s good for players to see that. I think oftentimes in organizations you don’t see that. You don’t see that figurehead, the owner and that’s fine, there’s structure and management, but I think for us, it’s great leadership to see that and to know the expectations that this organization has."
