Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, for the first time Sunday evening, acknowledged the suggestive photos of him and two women that have been circulating on the Internet in recent days. Jones called the photos a misrepresentation but offered little else. He used the phrases “I don’t have any more comment’’ and “that’s all I’d really like to get into” a total of six times in a span of three minutes. The photos that appear to show Jones in suggestive poses with two younger women first appeared on the sports gossip site TerezOwens.com and were picked up Tuesday by Deadspin.com. The low-quality images were released online in a 20-page manifesto by a man named Frank Hoover, who calls himself the “Son of God.” Hoover writes in the document that the photos are part of a plan by others to extort Jones, although no such scheme has been confirmed. Asked if the photos were part of an extortion plot, Jones responded: “Someone has misrepresented photos taken at a restaurant five years ago for their own purposes. I’m just not going to comment on it.’’ Jones confirmed that the photos were taken in a Dallas restaurant. He was then asked what was misrepresented in the photos.
