Jones reacting to a bad decision he and his team made
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said any player who disrespects the flag will not play.
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.
Jones said “I know this, we cannot in the NFL in any way give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag. We know that there is a serious debate in this country about those issues, but there is no question in my mind that the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys are going to stand up for the flag. So we’re clear.”
It must be noted that Jones and the rest of the team knelt arm-in-arm before the national anthem before a game against the Arizona Cardinals two weeks ago.
Jones said showing respect for the flag and the anthem is more important to him than any potential issues of team unity.
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross said he changed his view on how his team should handle the national anthem. Ross said because Trump made standing for the national anthem about “patriotism,” he evolved the way he looks at the protest.
Ross now wants all of the Dolphins players to stand for the anthem.
The NFL still doesn’t get it. The NFL has no concept of patriotism or what it means to be an American.
The NFL has said the game operations manual distributed to teams includes a reference to players standing for the anthem, but that it’s a policy and not a rule. The league has said it doesn’t plan to punish players over anthem protests.
Michelle Obama said “People ‘Don’t Trust Politics’ Because Republican Party Is ‘All Men, All White’.”
Dozens of NFL players refused to stand for the national anthem.
Many players took a knee or sat during the anthem, while some entire teams remained in the locker room.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin attacks Alejandro Villanueva for standing for national anthem.
A former Army Ranger, Villanueva was the only player from the team to break from the coach’s orders and come out of the tunnel to stand for The Star Spangled Banner.
Former Army Ranger, Villanueva said “I don’t know if the most effective way is to sit down during the national anthem with a country that’s providing you freedom, providing you $16 million a year when there are black minorities that are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan for less than $20,000 a year,”
It seems that many NFL players have taken one to many hits to the head and are either ignorant or just stupid.
Those that are as disgusted with the NFL and many of it’s players as I am should boycott the NFL, it’s players and NFL advertisers.
The loss of 150 million fans and game viewers will send a message to the NFL, team owners, players and advertisers disrespecting America, our military men and women, our national anthem, our flag will not be supported or tolerated and is just cause to boycott the NFL, players and advertisers until they publicly apologize to America for their inappropriate and disrespectful actions.
Remember it’s just a game. Beyond their entrainment value the NFL and players serve no useful purpose in society.
Why is common sense so uncommon?
President Trump must make it clear to that fat North Korean kid, Kim Jong
Un Dung that America will destroy any missile or rocket fired by North Korea the very second it passes into American, Japanese or any other American allies air space.
I fully support President Trump’s call to boycott the NFL.
President Trump extended his attack on NFL players who kneel during the national anthem, and suggested fans boycott games as he continued his call for team owners to “fire or suspend” the offender’s.
President Trump said “If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast.”
San Francisco 49ers owner Jed York said “Our players have exercised their rights as United States citizens in order to spark conversation and action to address social injustice. We will continue to support them in their peaceful pursuit of positive change in our country and around the world.”
Jed York here is a news flash. As an American citizen I am exercising ‘My’ right to boycott and blacklist the NFL until the NFL owners and it’s members apologize to America and all Americans for their disrespectful actions. Kneeling during the playing of the American national anthem.
I fully agree with President Trump in saying I’d love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, say ‘get that disrespectful coward off the field right now? He’s fired.
National Retail Federation (NRF), said Americans are expected to spend a record $9.1 billion on costumes, candy and pumpkins this Halloween.
That’s 9.1 ‘Billion’ US Dollars.
Don’t let the liberal left-wing Democrats tell you that America can’t afford to build a 10 billion dollar border wall to secure our southern border while they are busy lining their pockets with PAC and Taxpayer dollars and stuffing Halloween candy in their lying mouths.
I received this from another blogger and must share it with all Americans. GP will be posting on this same subject soon.
Freedoms are under attack. The left-wing democrat socialist thinking, political correct gang are out to suppress your First and Second Amendment rights.
They say Veterans rights must be restricted from university campus so the Whinny Buttercups and Snowflakes won’t be offended by opposing thoughts and speech.
In my opinion that’s a good thing. They should be sent to Iraq or Afghanistan for a year or two so they can get a good taste of fear and what feeling safe is really like.
These dorks really don’t know or understand the the U.S. Military is truly a multi-racial, multi-religion, equal opportunity organization dedicated to protecting the United States, all of our citizens from of America’s enemy’s foreign and domestic.
