Jerry Jones is feeling those burns.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has come to the dense of his embattled running back Ezekiel Elliott and the Internet is having none of it.
Elliott was reportedly involved in an incident at a Dallas bar where he injured another patron - this to go along with ongoing domestic abuse allegations that he faces from last summer. Today, Jones addressed concerns about Elliott with this statement to reporters:

Jerry Jones: "We've got a high bar here." Says Dallas Cowboys don't have tolerance for off the field issues— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) July 23, 2017
Given that at least two more Cowboys' players are facing suspensions for this upcoming season, questions have arisen about the culture that Jones has been an enabler of during his time as owner. Twitter users, as expected, had a field day.
