Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn't see why it's such big news that the team's draft board was visible to viewers while he was being interviewed in front of it. The draft was already over, so who cares?
“I’m a little hard-pressed to see where the issue is at all after the draft is over,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram.
“We don’t put anything up there that’s particularly sensitive. Those are the opinions and the work of our scouts. The fact that there might have been a player up there a round earlier or a round later than it is on a lot of other people’s boards or opinion doesn’t impact us.”
He does make a point. There's really no competitive advantage to a team in seeing what the Cowboys board looked well like after the fact, but on the other hand, it does make him look incompetent to stand in front of it and the cameras at the same time. “I don’t see the negative aspect of that information,” Jones said. “We won’t make it a practice of publishing it, but still, I don’t think it’s an important detail.”
