IMO… So I’m getting a little fed up with this foolishness. You don’t OWN these guys. They are paid entertainers. Why can’t we just play the fucking game and shut the fuck up? I thought this was about the SPORT AND LOVE OF THE SPORT.
I don’t care if they stand, kneel, sing, shit, twerk, I don’t care. I’m there to watch a game and be entertained and forget about my bullshit life for 3 hours. Is it too much to ask of these morons to forget about the Anthem during a HOME game because it’s THE US AGAINST THE US ??…you dumb fucks!! Lol We aren’t playing against another country you idiots.
I’m sorry guys but I’m Bloated, PMSing and I’m just not in the mood today.
Article below. … chime in. What do you think?
After the Cowboys’ heartbreaking loss to the Packers Sunday night, team owner Jerry Jones created an unexpected storyline, warning his players to “respect the flag” or they won’t play.
“If there is anything disrespecting the flag, then we will not play. Period,” Jones said (via the Dallas News.) We’re going to respect the flag and I’m going to create the perception of it. …”
The whole national anthem protest theme that boiled over in NFL stadiums two weekends ago, then quieted down last weekend, erupted again Sunday. In Indianapolis, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife walked out of Lucas Oil Stadium after he spotted players kneeling during the national anthem.
Jones referenced Pence’s actions in his comments.
“I know this. We cannot in the NFL, in any way, give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag,” Jones said. “We cannot do that. I know the vice president did leave because in his opinion, the teams were. 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. Just so we’re clear.”
In case you’re wondering, while all the Cowboys players and coaches knelt with Jones before the anthem two weeks ago in a show of unity, the Dallas News reports no Cowboys players have knelt or sat during the anthem this season. However, defensive linemen David Irving and Damontre Moore raised their fist following the anthem Sunday. Moore did so as well last week, while Irving was making his season debut. Jones seemed unaware of their actions and did not specifically address whether those acts qualified as disrespect.
“Yeah, I don’t know about that, but if there is anything that is disrespectful to the flag then we will not play,” Jones told the Dallas News. “You understand? If we are disrespecting the flag, then we won’t play. Period. Period. We’re going to respect the flag. And we have.
“We’ve made our expression that we’re together. I’m very supportive of the team but under no circumstances — under no circumstances — will the Dallas Cowboys, I don’t care what happens, under no circumstances as an organization or as coaches and players, not support and stand and recognize and honor the flag. Period.”
MODERN DAY SLAVERY? Owner to the players, “EITHER get in line, do what I tell you or get out.”
Sir you are talking to grown ass men. Those men have their own rights. They have their freedoms. You can’t force your beliefs on others. They can refuse to stand. What is he looking for, ROBOTS? LOL This isn’t new. Atheletes have been tossing up the BLACK POWER sign for a long time. Nobody stopped the game when TIM TEBOW was kneeling. Why? Because he was part of the majority right? But when you’re part of the minority it’s a problem.
You know, Jerry Seinfeld said during his standup on Netflix. Basically sports fanatics fall in love with a player of a certain team, then when he leaves that team and joins another team, THEY HATE HIM, lol why? Jerry goes on to say that all the guy did was change his shirt. He’s still the same person. He hasn’t changed at all. Just moved to a different location and changed his clothing. Why are you mad again? Would you hate anybody else for switching shirts? Or getting another job? What’s up with this ownership thing in sports?
