We live in such a time of disrespect. Back in the day, your parents taught you to respect. If people cannot respect our country and flag…move somewhere where you can! Do I agree with everything in America? NO! But I love my country and I am proud of all the men and women who have and do fight to keep us safe and for our freedoms!
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones finally had enough of the anthem protesters and told them what he would do if some of his players disrespect the anthem! If you ask me this is just too late because he and the rest of the team knelt arm-in-arm before the national anthem before a game against the Arizona Cardinals two weeks ago
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Sunday that any of his players who disrespect the flag during the national anthem won’t play in games.
Jones is the first NFL owner to publicly make a stand about disciplining players who kneel during the anthem. Jones didn’t specify what kind of other demonstration he would consider disrespectful.
Cowboys defensive linemen Damontre’ Moore and David Irving stood alongside teammates during the national anthem before Sunday’s home game against Green Bay at ATT Stadium. At the conclusion of the anthem, the two players raised their fists.
“I don’t know about that. But if there is anything that is disrespectful to the flag then we will not play,” Jones said after the Cowboys’ 35-31 loss. “You understand? If we are disrespecting the flag then we won’t play. Period.
“We’re going to respect the flag, and I’m going to create the perception of it. And we have.”
Jones’ comments, the strongest made on the anthem controversy, came after he was asked about Vice President Mike Pence leaving the game in Indianapolis early after several San Francisco 49ers players took a knee during the national anthem. (Video below)
When you see owners and coaches making references opposing what the players want, the boycotts are working. It is called “damage control”. Of course, I would give more faith in financial decisions to a homeless person than the majority of today’s NFL players. So keep boycotting. We may not see this year the big dip in ticket sales, but the proof is when you carry out boycotts for the long haul.
