The NFL owners’ meeting got pretty intense on Tuesday.
ESPN’s Seth Wickersham reports that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones yelled “don’t f with me” at Patriots owner Robert Kraft during a disagreement.
“Don’t fuck with me” Jerry Jones told Robert Kraft in today’s league meetings.
For the second time in five years, Jones is leading a charge against the way Roger Goodell is compensated.

NFL owners voted 31-1 on Tuesday to permit their compensation committee to open negotiations on a new contract with commissioner Roger Goodell, but not before two of the league’s most powerful owners, the Dallas Cowboys’ Jerry Jones and New England Patriots’ Robert Kraft, engaged in a heated exchange, multiple league and ownership sources told ESPN.
The sources said Kraft joined the overwhelming majority in strong support for the measure, with Jones the lone dissenter in the owners-only session, eventually telling Kraft, “Don’t f— with me.”
Kraft replied, “Excuse me?”
“Don’t mess with me,” Jones said.
The measure then passed, sources said.
NFL fans thought the beef between the tow owners was hilarious.
