DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – Jerry Jones is quite possibly the most hands-on and involved owner in NFL history.

He’s also a football addict, a man who sleeps very little and as one of 32 men with the power to end the league’s labor dispute with its referees, a Dallas Cowboys owner with literally billions of dollars at stake.

Therefore, his claim that he flipped off his TV at halftime of the Monday Night Football game and went to bed and woke up Tuesday for his visit on Dallas radio station 105.3 The Fan with absolutely no awareness of the controversial replacement-refs-marred Seattle win over Green Bay seems … dubious.

“I just read a little note in the paper that the Seahawks pulled it out,” Jones told New School, insisting that he hadn’t seen the game, reviewed the replays or received a phone call about the 14-12 Seattle win, which ended on an apparently botched call on a 24-yard “Hail Mary’’ Golden Tate touchdown catch that could’ve been ruled an interception by Packers defensive back M.D. Jennings.

One official ruled it an interception. Another called it a touchdown. What is beyond dispute: The level of officiating ineptitude is the No. 1 story in the NFL, a continuation of a running theme through three weeks of the season.

There is no benefit to Jones going public with an admission of that fact. So he’s trying to steer the NFL conversation into another direction.

“It’s exciting,’’ Jones said of the league’s competitive balance, which features just three remaining undefeated teams. “It gives us a lot to talk about on our shows that we have. Fundamentally, when I look at where the league is over the first three ballgames, it’s great. We have a lot of competition.”

That’s what “early-to-bed’’ Jerry Jones is saying in public.

In private? Logic suggests he’s part of the league’s effort to resolve its labor dispute.

And when he does that, he and the rest of the NFL community will be legitimately able to sleep easier.
