Cowboys proprietor and Traditional Supervisor Jerry Jones was as soon as now not partial to the “throw up ball” he saw in his crew’s penalty-fest of a Thanksgiving loss to the Raiders. And Jones indicated that the true assert is now not the NFL’s principles, but over-officious officials.

Jones acknowledged he can’t fault the Raiders for the procedure their deep balls drew so many fade interference penalties, but he does notify the NFL’s principles incentivize below-thrown passes to plan flags, and that the officials don’t must throw a flag on every little bit of ticky-tack contact.

“To their credit ranking, I notify [the Raiders] apt did a true correct job of getting their massive plays, and a bunch of them have been penalties in the throwing game,” Jones acknowledged, throughout the Star-Telegram. “They took advantage of it, and I notify it influenced the earn. We had some plays fade alongside with us too, it wasn’t fancy it didn’t fade against them. So all as soon as more, here’s if truth be told now not a criticism of the foundations. It is a criticism of the discretion of the procedure you exercise them and what play. All people is conscious of you might maybe even name a penalty on every play many varied ways, every time the ball snapped. And so you are going to deserve to have a if truth be told feel for what you’re making an strive to form in the ball game and this one turned out that method.”

The officials didn’t rather name a penalty on every play on Thanksgiving, but now and then it felt that method. Mute, except the officiating affects the recognition of the game, the league doesn’t have unheard of incentive to trade issues. And if there’s one ingredient we know from the Raiders-Cowboys game, the NFL stays staggeringly current.
