Jerry Jones gets his freak on...in pictures!

Steelgrave:
I figure the Cowboys have to be better off with the son rather than the father.

But then I remembered Oakland...... :P

I don't know what Jerry's replationship is with his son, but Al's relationship with Mark was open contempt and utter disgust.  Al did nothing to prepare Mark for the responsibilities of inheriting the team.  No idea if Jerry's taken a different path with Stephen.

BanzaiCat:
Did Al's son work with any responsibilities in the Raiders organization? Seems that Jerry's son has that experience.

I'll give credit where credit is due, if he's good at his job, despite me hating the Pokes.

I didn't know that about Mark and Al. Interesting.

Stephen has been an integral part of the Cowboys management for a few years now. It's unclear how much (if any) authority he has, but he does have the old man's ear. Stephen is clearly being groomed to take over the Cowboys one day. I'm undecided if that's reason for optimism or not.....

--- Quote ---Wrong answer.
 
"A [expletive] receiver?" Al Davis snapped, his voice rising. "Get the [expletive] out of here."
 
And with that, the heir to one of the NFL's most storied franchises slinked out of the room and continued with the rest of his day.
 
I cite this incident not to illustrate that Al Davis had a mean streak and did not suffer fools gladly, even when the fool in question was his only child. Nor is it necessary as a means of proving that Mark Davis doesn't know much about personnel he essentially admitted that Tuesday at the news conference announcing the hiring of general manager Reggie McKenzie (a potentially sound move) and the firing of head coach Hue Jackson (an astonishingly dumb one).
 
No, the reason I share this story which was related to me by a former member of the Raiders' coaching staff who witnessed it is to explain why I think the younger Davis made a coaching change after Jackson's promising, 8-8 rookie season: To project an image of authority, Mark Davis needs to surround himself with employees who didn't see him routinely disparaged and condescended to by his legendary father.
