NFL VP of officiating Dean Blandino -- or someone that looks a lot like him -- was seen departing a party bus which seems to have been commandeered by Dallas Cowboys Executive Vice President Stephen Jones.
Why is this a big deal? From CBS:
This team official then went on to specify why this is such a problem for the NFL.
"It shows a total lack of judgment, and common sense, to get on the bus in the first place. And then to get off of it in that setting? Yeah, we've got a big problem with that. It's one thing to have a drink or two back in the hotel room or whatever, but this goes way beyond that. How does this not look like preferential treatment?"
Ummmm, okay. I'm still trying to understand why that's such a big deal. So, the Cowboys will go 5-11 rather than 4-12? Is this a problem...assuming that Dean Blandino is incapable of doing his job after partying with an executive?
