The NFL season is over.

And now the fun begins.

The question is:

Whom do you root for in this pissing match among assolkes:

Roger Goodell or Jerry Jones?

Commissioner Goodell and the NFL are expected to compel Dallas Cowboys owner Jones to reimburse legal fees the league incurred this past season, a league source told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport reports the payment of more than $2 million by Jones would be “a reimbursement of costs incurred by member clubs” associated with Ezekiel Elliott’s efforts to appeal his six-game suspension and Jones’ work to slow Goodell’s contract extension:

“It was a year-long storyline of Jerry Jones threatening to sue the NFL and trying to impede the progress that they were making involving Roger Goodell’s salary negotiations. And, actually, this goes all the way back to Jerry Jones’ vocal opposition to the six-game penalty that ended up coming for Ezekiel Elliott. One thing the league will try to do is get Jerry Jones to pay the legal fees associated with his contesting a lot of what the league was trying to do, whether involved with Elliott or whether involved with Roger Goodell’s salary and Jerry Jones’ threat to sue.”

The Cowboys declined to comment when reached by

Jones unsuccessfully spent weeks this past season attempting to slow a new contract extension for Goodell and routinely expressed his anger over Elliott’s six-game suspension for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy.

Goodell signed an extension early last December, and Elliott ultimately served his suspension following a lengthy appeals process that took place over much of the 2017 season.
