Jerry Jones' CTE Is Showing

Despite the NFL finally admitting a link between football and CTE, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones needs more evidence.  He told The Washington Post that there isn't any data or research to support a link between the two:

"We don’t have that knowledge and background and scientifically, so there’s no way in the world to say you have a relationship relative to anything here,” Jones said. “There’s no research. There’s no data…. We’re not disagreeing. We’re just basically saying the same thing. We’re doing a lot more. It’s the kind of thing that you want to work… to prevent injury. A big part of this is prevention. But the other part of it is to basically understand that we don’t know or have any idea that there is a consequence as to any type of head injury in the future."

It's hard not to link Jones' statements and odd behavior to his own CTE.  It sure as hell would explain a lot about what goes on in Dallas.
