This is not a big deal. The ankle is a non-issue for me.

In the most recent Super Bowl, they gave the game ball to the cornerback, Larry Brown, who intercepted two crucial passes. But who was the really big winner of Super Bowl XXX? I'll give you a clue: He never threw a pass, made a block, caught or ran with a ball, kicked or blocked a punt, sent in a play or fell on a fumble. Give up? Well, how about Jerral Wayne Jones? His position on the team? Owner. A non-platooned position. He was the big winner because he had the most to lose.

Washington Coach Norv Turner is still steaming about Dallas owner Jerry Jones going onto the field to protest a call in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys' 17-14 victory over the Redskins.

Tex Schramm, the architect of "America's team," took on the job of transplanting the interest in the National Football League overseas when he resigned Tuesday as president of the Dallas Cowboys to head the experimental International Football League. The man who ran the Cowboys for all of their first 29 years turned in his resignation on the day NFL owners unanimously approved the sale of the franchise to Arkansas oilman Jerry Jones. Although it appeared to be an amicable parting--"We're flying back to Dallas together," Schramm said--there was no alternative because Jones has taken over control of the team.

Quite a time this has been for the state of Arkansas. The governor got elected President of the United States. The two best basketball players from the University of Arkansas both were taken by the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the NBA draft. And a couple of old schoolmates, Jerry Jones and Jimmy Johnson, went from villainy to victory by taking the Dallas Cowboys to their first Super Bowl since the Carter Administration. Oh, all the news out of Arkansas wasn't so good.

Suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones has entered an alcohol treatment center. The oft-troubled player has checked into a facility "in another part of the country," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Monday. "It's totally done through and by the NFL," Jerry Jones said.
