Sometimes your ego can get in the way of your best judgment.

As in the case of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who cost the NFL mucho bucks fighting a tug of war with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell last season.

Despite appealing to Goodell for leniency, Jones will have to pay a significant portion of the league’s legal fees — approximately $2 million — which paid for lawyers to defend six owners that Jones had threatened to sue.

Jones will also have to cover the league’s legal costs associated with Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, whose appeal of a six-game suspension forced the NFL to argue its case in federal court.

“After a hearing with the Commissioner and the Finance Committee, the matter of the reimbursement of legal fees has been resolved to the satisfaction of all parties,” the league said in a statement yesterday, without citing any specifics.
