The NFL prohibits any "tauntings, ejections, inappropriate celebrations, and abuses of officials, either verbally or physically" and has sent memos to teams over the years to remind them.
In a 2019 memo, the NFL said, "violations of these policies will result in prompt disciplinary action by the League office, which may include fines of the club and/or individual who make such public comments. Egregious and inflammatory public comments could result in the suspension of the individual(s) making the comment.”
People online had mixed reactions to Jones' costume. Some felt the "NFL needs to develop a sense of humor," while others found it "offensive."
\u201cHappy Halloween !! Jerry jones as a blind referee, love the spirit and accuracy \ud83c\udfc8\u2764\ufe0f#HappyHalloween #CowboysNation\u201d
\u201cCoyboys owner Jerry Jones is looking at a huge fine for dressing up as a blind referee for Halloween. Can\u2019t figure out if he offended the blind or the referees, but either way, the NFL needs to develop a sense of humor. That shit was funny as hell. #Cowboys\u201d
\u201cJerry Jones made a poor choice for a Halloween costume.\n\nWe need to remember NMSU used to have a skit during timeouts where 3 Blind Mice would be played while a band member in a refs jersey, sunglasses, and a cane, would parade around them.\n\nIt was offensive and was scratched.\u201d
