Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones fired a shot at a referee against Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
Rectifier Scott Edwards threw Cowboy head coach Jason Garrett a flag for unsporting behavior. According to the Dallas Morning News, the referee from the pool report, Ron Torbert, said the punishment was "abusive remarks to an official". Jones seemed puzzled over the reaction DURING THE GAME
"Oh, I hope the little sweetheart has not heard something he has not heard before," Jones said, according to ESPN. "We should all stop when he got [a penalty for] abusive language."
The interaction between Garrett and Edwards came in the third quarter after Cowboy's wide receiver Amari Cooper had been ruled out for a catch he had appeared. Garrett was forced to use a challenge and the call was lifted.

In this situation, you must use the flag to correct the call, and you will not have one later in the game, "Garrett said after the game. "Of course I did not master this situation as well as I should. I knew we would get the piece because I saw it and unfortunately we had to use that flag there. And he made the decision to throw a flag at me.
Garrett also had issues with a pass interference penalty imposed by Anthony Brown early in the quarter, for which he also threw a challenge flag.
The standard is very high for them to topple over, "he said. "That was more of a situational challenge. I do not think it was a passport failure. If I thought it was a passport failure, I would not have thrown the flag, but the understanding of the standard is high because of the situation, and you have to give yourself a chance. … When you slow it down, things often look a bit bigger than they are. I know it's hard to turn things around, but it's too hard not to do it. "
