Jerry Jones wants to eliminate kneel-down plays

Here's a fresh, new take from Jerry Jones on how to do away with future kneel-down controversies (one we admittedly never saw coming): Do away with the kneel-down altogether.
That's the opinion the Dallas Cowboys owner shared with the Dallas Morning News on Tuesday.
"I don't like it," Jones said. "Lamar Hunt tried several times to introduce a rule to have it voted on that you couldn't kneel down, you had to run a play. Unless you were trying to advance the ball, then you got a penalty and the time didn't run off the clock. It's not a good play. ... I've always thought that that's a wasted play for our fans."
Does he feel the same about the thousands of plays run in the preseason? But I've digressed.
