You may not like “Them Cowboys”, but you have to love their owner.
The larger than life Jerry Jones has taken a stand, and it may make him the most popular owner in the league.
While other NFL owners and coaches seem to be taking the side of the players who want to take a knee during the national anthem, Jerry Jones has sided with America, its National Anthem….and Trump.
Here’s what Trump said yesterday that caused such a stir….from SportsDay:
During a rally in Alabama, Trump encouraged fans to boycott games in which they see players protesting.
“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now, out, he’s fired. He’s fired,'” Trump said.
“You know, some owner is going to do that. He’s going to say, ‘That guy that disrespects our flag, he’s fired.’ And that owner, they don’t know it, they’re friends of mine, many of them, [but] they’ll be the most popular person in this country.”
The Cowboys have not had a player protest the national anthem before a game.
Trump is right. The owner that takes a strong stand for the National Anthem will become the most popular owner in America. Despite the media trying to cram this crap down our throats, most Americans DO NOT appreciate disrespecting our National Anthem!
It looks like that owner may be Jerry Jones.
From CBS Sports:
As national anthem protests have become more and more prevalent around the NFL during the 2017 preseason, some teams and their executives have also been forced to be more open with their specific thoughts on the issue.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t want there to be any confusion regarding his thoughts on the matter. He does not support players sitting or kneeling or doing anything but standing for the national anthem.
“I just feel so strongly that the act of recognizing the flag is a salute to our country and all of the people that have sacrificed so that we can have the liberties we have,” Jones said Tuesday during his appearance with Shan and RJ Tuesday on CBS Sports Radio’s 105.3 The Fan. “I feel very strongly that everyone should save that moment for the recognition of the flag in a positive way, so I like the way the Cowboys do it.”
The Cowboys have not had any players demonstrate during the playing of the anthem, either last year or during the 2017 preseason. At least, there is not currently any public knowledge of it happening.
From the Fairway to the rough to the sand, Steelhead XR with the versatile Hawkeye Sole is long from every lie.
But while Jones is almost certainly not the only owner, executive, or player in the league that feels this way, there has been a recent trend of players, coaches, and executives at least showing some measure of support for players’ decisions to express themselves during the anthem in whatever way they see fit — even if those people lending support wouldn’t necessarily choose to express themselves in that way.
Preach on Jerry! How ’bout them Cowboys!
By the way, isn’t it funny how the media likes to twist the facts to fit their agenda?
