Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has jokes for Halloween.
In an image posted on his niece’s Instagram account, the Cowboys’ owner was pictured dressed up as a blind referee with glasses and a walking stick.

The NFL really doesn’t like jokes about refs from members of teams and even issued a memo about it back in 2019.
“[c]riticism of officiating which includes, but is not limited to, the following: Comments regarding the quality of officiating, individual calls or missed calls, the League’s officiating department, an officiating crew, or an individual game official; [a]ccusing game officials of acting with bias or in any way questioning the integrity of NFL game officials; or [p]osting negative or derogatory/demeaning content pertaining to officiating on social media.”
“Violations of these policies will result in prompt disciplinary action by the League office, which may include fines of the club and/or individual who make such public comments,” the memo continued. “Egregious and inflammatory public comments could result in the suspension of the individual(s) making the comment.”
Fans reacted to Jones’ costume.
That might prove to be an expensive Halloween costume… https://t.co/S1UG3bhECd
