"I'm sorry we're in this state of mind as a country, but if you're looking for a racist Jerry Jones is not that guy".

"The NFL's findings are replete with factual inaccuracies and erroneous conclusions and it "cherry picks" so-called evidence to support its conclusion while ignoring other critical evidence", a joint statement from Elliott's legal representatives, attorneys Frank Salzano and Scott Rosenblum, said following the initial suspension announcement in August.

"Hey, Jennifer, congratulations on the wedding", Jones said.

The NFL could be in the verge of major internal conflict as Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has set his sights on Commissioner Roger Goodell, ESPN reported on Friday.

Former Dallas Cowboys cornerback Deion Sanders, learned of the video and came to Jones' defense.

"Jerry's message to Roger was 'I run this league".

The camera then cuts to a black man standing off camera who laughs after an extended pause. "If you think Bob Kraft came after you hard [after the deflate-gate decision], Bob Kraft is a [expletive] compared to what I'm going to do".

The Stoxx Europe 600 Oil and Gas index reversed gains after the announcement, sliding 0.3% as of 3:47 London. And analysts warned that the central bank's proposal could have a knock-on effect on the sector.

Even so, Jones has vowed, sources say, to make Goodell's life miserable.

The video was then sent to the website "because the individuals involved thought it was important for National Football League fans to see", The Blast said.

Jones was referencing the "deflategate" investigation that led to the four-game suspension of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady last season.

But Van Natta and Wickersham have the alleged details on what Jones said to Goodell after being informed Elliot would be suspended.

The intra-league drama has made the NFL's behind-the-scenes negotiations more interesting than the games themselves.

But two weeks ago, Jones, a nonvoting member of the compensation committee, escalated the dispute when he threatened to sue the league and the six owners on the committee if they did not bend to his will.
