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, just days away from the kick-off of the NFL’s 2017 preseason. 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.
Jones sees it as a measure of respect for the fans, as well the military and the USA.
Finally, an owner with the courage to stand up for our country! That is true leadership! I applaud his statement to his team. It’s about time an owner has the courage to mandate paying respect to the anthem!
If athletes can’t stand for the national anthem then they don’t deserve playing football and getting paid millions of dollars in this country. These days it is such an embarrassing shame what America has turned into.
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.
Thank you, Mr. Jerry Jones, you are truly a patriot and an Ambassador for the NFL and a man of great character.
