Originally written November 18, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones did an interview with CBS News correspondent Jan Crawford broadcast Monday on “CBS This Morning” and admitted that he criticism he hears hurts him. “I think I love the pain,” he said in an “Certainly, criticism hurts, but it, boy – fuels your ambition. It makes me think, ‘I wanna show them.’ ” Jones admits he listens to a lot talk radio and hears everyone ripping him. “No, no. As a matter of fact, I probably listen to more talk radio than anyone,” Jones said via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The interviewer replied, “Do you really? You hear it?” “I think I love the pain,” said Jones. Jones then went on to talk about a trip to the doctors office in which he didn’t mind suffering some pain after a tough loss. “I was doing a lot of blood work, and they said, ‘We want to be sure and get this nurse in that really knows how to be gentle and get it done quickly on the first time,’ “ Jones said. “And I said, ‘This morning, I need one that needs to try 10 times. I want some pain.’ ” Jones was than asked, “Literally, this happened?” Jones said, “That happened. And I need to cry a little bit. And so, that’s not a bad thing.” Jones was once again asked if he plans on hiring a general manager. “My experience has been the closer your top management is to the man that writes the check, or the man that is the financial backbone of the team, the better operation you have,” he said.   Need NFL Tickets?
