The folks at TMZ touched off an unlikely firestorm via a recent video of the lengthy procession of people from an oversized clown car bearing the logo of the Dallas Cowboys. The group emerging from the multi-million-dollar bus included team COO Stephen Jones, smedium-shirted Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, and NFL V.P. of officiating Dean Blandino. Blandino’s presence, undetected by TMZ since he otherwise enjoys a low profile, has sparked a flurry of anonymous gripes and whines to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports regarding the apparent belief that Blandino spending time with Stephen Jones in a social setting will result in the Cowboys somehow getting better calls and in turn winning more games and ultimately not failing to qualify for the postseason. Meanwhile, none of those anonymous complainers has made a complaint, anonymous or otherwise, to the league office. Per a league source, not a single complaint has been made by any NFL team regarding Blandino’s interaction with Stephen Jones. Not one.
League office has received no complaints about Blandino’s visit to Cowboys
