Jerry Jones and Jimmy Johnson haven’t had a good relationship since the Dallas Cowboys owner and former head coach parted ways in 1994. And that’s an understatement. They have traded shots back and forth through the media ever since, but now it seems Jones wishes things had been a bit different.

Speaking on KTCK-AM 1310 The Ticket (h/t SportsDay), Jones spoke about what was doing on with him personally at that time that had a big impact on how he acted, taking some measure of responsibility for the split.

“As much as anything the times of buying the team, if I was trying to hold this glass of water — I was 45 when I bought [the Cowboys] — I would be spilling it even though I was holding it with both hands,” Jones said on the radio show. “Now I was scared to death. I thought I was going to go broke for sure plus I knew I didn’t know what I was doing about getting involved. On the other hand it was a traumatic time. I tear up sometime when I’m talking about it, even on a speech.

“I lost my tolerance for a lot of things for a lot of things I probably should have tolerated. I probably should have had a little more tolerance with Jimmy Johnson. Seriously.”
