Jerry Jones feels terrible for good friend Sean Payton, the Saints and fans in New Orleans

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reached out to Saints coach Sean Payton shortly after he received a season-long NFL suspension for his role in the bounty investigation.

He visited with him in Dallas and then visited with him when Payton arrived at the NFL owners meeting in Palm Beach.

Jones calls Payton, who was a former Cowboys offensive coordinator, a good friend and wanted to show him some love although he understands and respects the NFL decision.

Jones said he feels for Payton, owner Tom Benson and general manager Mickey Loomis, who was suspended for six games as well as the fans of the New Orleans. He said he feels terrible for Saints fans who have been through a lot over the years.

“I just wanted to as a friend, as a real friend, I just wanted to give him a little love in whatever way you want to call it,” Jones said. “I understand the need. I support the commissioner and what we are doing. I understand it. But I feel really bad for him and Mickey (Loomis) and Tom (Benson). I feel bad for them. It means so much to the fans of New Orleans. I feel bad for New Orleans. I have a very soft spot for them. When they are not yelling for the Saints most of them are yelling for the Cowboys.

“I feel terrible for the fans of New Orleans,” Jones continued. “But it is what it is. The fans of New Orleans and New Orleans have had to take it on the chin a lot. If anybody can handle this they can. It still doesn’t make it any easier. I feel terrible for them.”

Haha funny so many Saints fans are here posting. NOOOO your not fans of the Cowboys. I can honestly say Ive never been to a Saints website.

Feel bad for the Saints??? To hell with the Saints. I don't care about the hurricane and its effects, we are not ALL Saints as that garabge was put out there by the NFL and media, and when the bottom line..the Saints, their fan base hate our team and our tradition so to hell with the Saints and their bandwagon fans. Hell, when I was watching Huirrcan Irene coverage I saw more people trying to be resuced in Aaron Brooks jersey's than I ever saw on a Saints fan's back at a game!!!


By the way, they won the Super Bowl because a bum wide receiver ran the wrong route and then Manning gets the unjust blame for a 'bad pick."

New Orleans Saints = SUCK!

"When they are not yelling for the Saints most of them are yelling for the Cowboys."

I just gagged a little... No we're not.

@thewhodatnation: You certainly won't get any from the Cowboy fans. We've had to put up with Jerry for over 20 years. We're the ones that need the sympathy.

i dont want your sympathy
