Everybody knows that Colin Kaepernick’s polarizing decision to protest the national anthem was a stupid thing to do! Honoring and respect the flag of our nation is also paying respect for those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep of nation safe and free.
Now for all the overpaid players that feel they have contributed to our nation by playing football need a reality check, you have only served your ego! If you want to disrespect the flag, our nation, our vets and military members and football fans, we really don’t want to see you play! To get respect you have to give respect, common sense!
Therefore, Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, has issued an unequivocal statement to his players. Jones told his players that they have to stand during the playing of the national anthem if they want to suit up in the silver and blue this season.
The American Web Media broke a story about Dallas Cowboy’s owner Jerry Jones. The most well-known NFL owner has been very devoted to his team and has even taken chances on people who have done wrong. There is one thing he won’t tolerate. He has now officially banned all of his players from protesting the national anthem.
This NFL owner got it right while the rest of them seemingly enjoy their team getting all of the media attention because they are disrespecting our flag and anthem. He is a firm believer that the Cowboys stand for patriotism and American tradition. Hell, their nickname is “America’s team,” even though I won’t ever root for them.
Although the NFL players might be the faces of the sport, in the end, the team owners have a lot of power over what the players can and cannot do.
Not standing for the national anthem is a sign of disrespect, which should never be allowed! What a player says or does on his own time, is his business. When on the field, it’s not his time. It’s his employer’s time.
