DALLAS - The owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, has told his star quarterback Tony Romo that he does not want to see him on the sidelines wearing his baseball cap backwards anymore.
Jones told Romo that he expects him to wear his baseball cap correctly and in full compliance with the Dallas Cowboys Manual of Rules Compliance.
The 67-year-old Cowboys owner informed Tony that on page 136, paragraph 3, section 9C it clearly states: While on the sidelines, or while sitting on the bench, Dallas quarterbacks will wear their baseball caps with the brims to the front. They will comply with this directive without any exceptions.
A reporter for Sports Sultan Magazine informed Jones that for the longest time, Tony always wore his cap backwards when he was on the sidelines or sitting on the bench.
Jones responded by saying that he was full aware of that. He added that he had just let him slide. But he then commented that when he started hearing complaints from opposing players and coaches who told him that Tony was disrespecting the Dallas Cowboys Manual of Rules Compliance he decided to act upon the violation.
Mr. Jones said that the final (last) straw came when one of his own Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Patrice Winebush, 22, (36-22-36) told him that she had overheard Tony telling kicker Nick Folk that he was going to wear his effen cap any damn friggin' way he wanted and that no one, not even Jerry Jones was going to tell him different.
Jones was asked what he did about the situation. He said that first off, he called Patrice Winebush into his plush office and he gave her a $200 gift certificate to The Salt Grass Steakhouse.
He then called Tony into his plush office and told him that if he caught him wearing his cap backwards again that he would fine him $1,000.95.
Tony rolled his eyes and asked him why the 95 cents. Jones replied that the 95 cents would go into the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Christmas Party Fund.
In a related story. Tony was asked if he missed Jessica Simpson. He smiled, put his bottle of Gatorade down, and replied, "Yeah, I miss her...like I miss a case of poison ivy in the general vicinity of my crotcherectus."
