The voting was by secret ballot.
Mr. Jones declined to discuss the voting, beyond saying that it went to the maximum fourth ballot. (On the first three ballots, the votes of three-fourths of the owners are needed. After that, it becomes a simple-majority contest between the two top contenders.)
Jim Irsay, owner of the Colts, said he was told the final vote was 17-15 in favor of North Texas.
