An ESPN file on Thursday alleged that Snyder was once accumulating dust on others within the league amid investigations into him in order that he may just “blow up” different house owners and commissioner Roger Goodell will have to they are trying to oust him from the league.

Snyder reportedly “has dirt” and “a file” on Jones, his longtime buddy and Dallas Cowboys owner — regardless that it’s unclear what data is in there.

Yet Jones, talking on his weekly radio look on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Friday morning, mentioned he wasn’t conscious about the rest like that. There’s no pork between him and Snyder, and he mentioned he hasn’t heard of any house owners in need of to take away Snyder.
