El Paso’s Aaron Jones’ Response to Fine for Taunting Cowboys Player was Classic
Remember the career game El Paso's Aaron Jones had against my beloved Dallas Cowboys? You know, the one in which he scored 4 touchdowns and riddled the Dallas defense for 182 total yards.
One of those TD runs cost him $10,527.
That's how much the NFL fined him for waving bye-bye as he scooted past a Dallas Cowboys defender on his way to touchdown number 3 during their Oct. 6 match-up. Whether you thought it was a super-fun burn or a d**k move, the National Football League considered it taunting and fined him for it.
As much as it p***ed me off when I saw it happen in real time, I have to admit he had a hilarious response when recently asked by reporters if the gesture was worth the hit on his pocketbook.
Here's what the former UTEP Miner and Burges High Mustang said:
I can't say it was worth it, but the picture is a dope picture. I'm going to have that blown up one day in my house.
According to an ESPN report, Jones said he didn't plan on doing it; he was "just in the zone." He added that he plans to appeal and try to at least get the amount reduced. "I definitely got a nice picture out of it," said Jones. "But it hurts my pocket a little bit. I want that money."
Well, yeah. Good weed ain't cheap.
Signs you’re a True-Blue Dallas Cowboys Fan
• You’ve learned to live with the ridiculous nicknames people have for them. But, really guys enough with the Cowgirls, Clownboys, and Cowgueys jokes. Get some new material.
• The Eagles, Giants and Redskins are not to be spoken about in your presence. And none of that "Fly, Eagles, Fly" bulls**t, either.
• You spend more time hating on the Cowboys than you do supporting your own team. You, my friend, are a Dallas Cowboys fan.
