Jerry Jones: Cowboys Will Stand for The Flag or “Your Ass Will Be Off The Team”

This is why the Dallas Cowboys are America’s team. That’s the attitude. Sure some grown immature snowflakes will call out Jerry Jones, but it’s his team, and he loves America.

Just as Jones sets requirements for his team, he expects commitment and loyalty. If he’s paying the salaries, why can’t he impose these rules on his team? If you have a problem with this, then you don’t want to be a Dallas Cowboy, or you should explore joining another team where they let you disrespect the American flag, but that won’t happen in Dallas.

National anthem protests were top reason why NFL fans watched fewer games last year, according to J.D. Power survey.

Survey: Protests top reason NFL ratings dipped

One survey found that people who watched fewer NFL games last season cited national anthem protests as the No. 1 reason.

I boycotted the  specifically because of that  and proud that others followed. Keep it up. 

FYI, Dallas Cowboys’ Jerry Jones told his players “You will stand for the National Anthem, or your ass will be off this team.”

As the Dallas Cowboys begin training camp, Owner Jerry Jones wants to make one thing very clear to his team before the 2017 NFL season begins.

If any of his players want to take a knee during the National Anthem, don’t expect to see them on the roster for much longer.

Last season, Jones told CBS Radio’s 105.3 The Fan, “I got to give a big pat on the back to our entire team, our coaching staff, our entire organization. We strongly, strongly support the flag in every way we support — and it’s almost ridiculous to be saying it — the people who for generations and generations have given it all up so that we can get out here and show off in front of millions of people on television.”

Free agent Quarterback Colin Kaepernick made headlines after he knelt during the National Anthem last season with the San Francisco 49ers.
