The Dallas Cowboys have had major problems this year. They lost starting quarterback Tony Romo for seven games, and as a result, the team is 3-7 and almost certainly won’t make the playoffs. They’re still making silly player personnel decisions. And perhaps most importantly, they still employ Greg Hardy and all of his problems.
So, there’s no telling why anybody thought that starting a Twitter question-and-answer session for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones—one of the most divisive owners in all of sports — would be a good idea. But #AskJerryJones was born on Wednesday, and predictably, it did not go well.
All right, NFL Network, let’s give it a shot.
Sure, some people genuinely wanted to converse with Jones and ask him real questions.

Most, though, didn’t. Instead, they were more interested in trolling Jones.
