08:05 AM ET 06.02 | With so many important dates coming on the NFL litigation schedule, a small group of owners reportedly met in a western suburb of Chicago. Patriots owner Robert Kraft was spotted Wednesday afternoon boarding his private jet at DuPage Airport, a little less than 24 hours after arriving, according to sources. Also present during a full-day stakeout was the jet belonging to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, an unmistakable Gulfstream model with a star on each side of the tail. The kicker? Sources said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell also arrived in West Chicago via private jet Tuesday, and Panthers owner Jerry Richardson was believed to be present, the sources said. The NFL office was unable to provide any details.

Clandestine meetings that include JJ, Kraft and Goodell. Probably just getting together to discuss the latest baseball news I'm sure.

Of the ones that aren't too old school to fly, I'm sure they probably do.

Ah, another meeting of the famed Dumbinati. Ralph arrived from Buffalo in a horse and buggy, but had difficulty finding a stable in Chicago, since they changed the fire codes after the unfortunate incident with Mrs. O'Leary and her cow. Al flew in the window straight from Oakland, and, after checking the room for garlic and crucifixes, took his seat hanging upside down from the chandelier. Rex and Andy tried to arrive unnoticed, but guys listening to cockpit chatter on their scanners were alerted when Air Traffic Control appended "Heavy" to their plane's call signs.

Comparing "D" sizes? sounds like the right group for it.

I'm sure this secret meeting was about what is best for the NFL and all of the fans. I am just sure of it.
