Jerry Jones Reveals Why Jimmy Johnson Isn’t in the Cowboys’ Ring of Honor FirstSportz
The last time the Dallas Cowboys won the Super Bowl almost 3 decades ago, along with the team’s victory there was a feud that began at the same time and burns brightly to this day. The feud between cowboys owners Jerry Jones and former HC Jimmy Johnson is something that never seems to grow old. Either the owner brings the argument into the limelight or a question put to him by the media brings it back.
Once again, Jerry Jones reignited the argument when he gave an interview about the reasons Jimmy Johnson was eliminated from the Cowboys ring of honor despite being the most successful coach in the team’s history. When interviewed in Oxnard at the team’s training camp, Jones didn’t like the question he was asked New Scruggs by NBC 5 DFW.

Jerry Jones called Jimmy Johnson an extremely emotional person who still holds grudges against him
Jones didn’t like the tone of the question, we all know the owner loves to be in the spotlight only when there’s something positive going around about him, God forbid if the news is putting him in a negative spotlight, then Jones will do everything in his power to repay that person.
Newy Scruggs told Jones that “It seems very petty” Not including Jimmy Johnson in the team’s ring of honor. The owner answered in a rather dominating tone, “I have to make this decision. It’s not tailored at the end of the day to whether or not Jimmy sniffs.”
The Cowboys’ owner didn’t like being called petty in this situation, but in fairness it’s about time he inducted Johnson into the team’s ring of fame. Let’s face it, if not out of pettiness, then what’s the point? If Jimmy were the coach of another team or let’s say there was another owner with no personal vendetta against Johnson, this would not be a conversation as the coach would already be in the ring of fame.
Nearly every player on the Super Bowl-winning team of QB Troy Aikman, TO RB Emmitt Smith, WR Michael Irvin, Charles Halye and Darren Woodson has been inducted into the ring. To add salt to Jimmy’s wounds, Larry Allen, who came after Jimmy’s era, was also brought into the ring.
Very soon we will all see Jason Witten, DeMarcus Ware, Tony Romo and others join the ring as well. Despite the animosity between Jones and Johnson, time has played its part and seemed to have reduced issues between the pair, as the two sat next to each other during the HoF ceremony in Canton a year ago.
It seems unfair to keep Johnson waiting as he is a big reason the Dallas Cowboys have remained “America’s Team,” he helped build the fan base, and coached the team through one of its most successful eras. We really hope to see Johnson in the Ring of Fame soon and hopefully Jerry Jones will be next to him on the podium when it happens.
