Dallas, TX, United States (4E Sports) – Dallas Cowboys team owner Jerry Jones believes that rock star Jon Bon Jovi will make an “outstanding” NFL owner.
Jones made the pronouncement after the singer joined Larry Tanenbaum of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment as the principal members of a Toronto group expected to bid on the Buffalo Bills, according to the Toronto Sun.
“He knows many of the owners personally. All owners know of him,” Jones said of Bon Jovi. “But he knows them personally. He’s committed, he’s very genuine.
“You talk about individuals and talk about their qualification — there hasn’t been anybody more qualified to be involved in sports ownership, or certainly ownership in the NFL, than Jon Bon Jovi,” he added.
Jones declined to comment directly on the Bills’ future but offered some future advise for the new owner of the Bills.
“We always ought to be looking for ways to improve not only the growing of the pie, but also growing the fan base,” Jones said. “And to the extent that you can involve more fans in any team location is something to be considered.”
