FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said he will not back off the threat of suing the National Football League and several other owners if the compensation committee comes to an agreement with commissioner Roger Goodell on an extension.

The range of punishments, according to the Times, includes fines, docking draft picks and even suspending Jones, who has owned the Cowboys since 1989.

Jones is more personally invested in this than some other owners because running back Ezekiel Elliott was suspended for six games by Goodell, despite never even facing charges for his domestic violence allegations.

Jones is denying he was told to be quiet, and he went on the offensive Tuesday during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, chairman of the committee, said negotiations are progressing.

IEA says hopes of higher, stable oil prices could be dashed quickly
OPEC says that "The global economic growth dynamic has continued its broad-based and relatively strong momentum", OPEC said. That will keep prices down and help make the United States a net exporter of oil - in addition to gas - by the late 2020s.

One wonders why Jones' opposition to Goodell's contract, whatever the reason for the opposition, should be a big deal?

Jones also responded to the report that he may be ousted as owner of the Dallas Cowboys by a so-called "nuclear option" from his fellow owners.

"The committee is continuing its work towards finalizing a contract extension with the commissioner", Blank said in a statement on Monday. "We've got all the time in the world to evaluate what we're doing, and all the time in the world to extend him".

Jones' efforts to derail the five-year extension for the commissioner, which has been in the works for months and is almost complete, has annoyed a growing number of owners, who are angry that Jones has tried to hold Goodell's compensation hostage as a way to punish the commissioner for his decision to suspend Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. "We need to slow this train down".
