Ever since the trend of “taking a knee” during our national anthem has gained momentum, almost every team owner has shown themselves to be total cowards on the issue.
One owner, however, is finally taking a stand
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Sunday that any of his players who disrespect the flag during the national anthem won’t play in games.
“if there is anything that is disrespectful to the flag then we will not play,” Jones said after the Cowboys’ game Sunday. “You understand? If we are disrespecting the flag then we won’t play. Period.
“We’re going to respect the flag, and I’m going to create the perception of it. And we have.”
Jones is the first NFL owner to publicly make a stand about disciplining players who kneel during the anthem.
The bold move even brought words of praise from our Commander in Chief. Last night, he took to Twitter to personally salute Jerry Jones.
“A big salute to Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, who will BENCH players who disrespect our Flag.”Stand for Anthem or sit for game!”
