The NFL’s Dallas Cowboys are known as “America’s Team” due to their large fan base, among other reasons.
Owner Jerry Jones, a former college ball player himself and longtime billionaire friend of President Trump, is just as sick and tired as the rest of us with watching high-priced athletes kneel for the national anthem.
Now, Jones is speaking out louder than ever before. Every NFL owner needs to take note and follow his lead!
Jerry says: If you disrespect the flag, you’re benched!
“If there’s anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play. Understand? We will not … if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play. Period.”
Jones added, “We as a team are very much on the page together. We made our expression. I’m very supportive of the team, but under no circumstances will the Dallas Cowboys — I don’t care what happens — under no circumstances will we as an organization, coaches, players, not support and stand and recognize and honor the flag. Period.”
He concluded, “If it comes between the impression or the perception that we’re not standing together, supporting each other, or the perception that we’re disrespecting the flag, the perception that we’re not together will be secondary to not respecting the flag. Respecting the flag is first.”
How ‘bout them Cowboys!?
Per ESPN, regarding the rule that NFL players stand for the anthem…
According to the manual, “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking.”
And there you have it.
