IRVING, Texas (AP) NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell twice turned to Jerry Jones when asked about his relationship with the powerful Dallas Cowboys owner who tried to scuttle his contract extension.
"Jerry, do I look like I take it personally?" Goodell asked after the second question as Jones, the recent Hall of Fame inductee, winked at him. "`No' is the answer to that question."
A new five-year deal for Goodell had been signed for a week when owners gathered for meetings at a luxury Dallas-area hotel Wednesday. And while Jones was conciliatory, even hugging Goodell when replacing him on the podium, the outspoken billionaire wasn't conceding anything.
