Owner of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, is also a former college ball player and longtime billionaire friend of President Trump.
His team is known as “America’s Team” due to their large fan base and many other exceptional things. However, Jerry is getting pretty exasperated with all the protests coming from the high-priced athletes who are choosing to kneel for the national anthem and has decided to speak up about it.
He is making sure his message is loud and clear for every NFL owner to hear and follow his lead.
Jerry specifically said to the NFL: If any one disrespects the flag on his team they will be benched.
According to libertywriters: “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.
If you’re sick and tired of millionaire NFL babies disrespecting our flag comment YES! Do you stand with “America’s Team” owner Jerry Jones? Is this a fair punishment for kneelers? Let us know…
