President Trump got wind of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ stance on the National Anthem for the upcoming NFL season… which is that no player on his team is allowed to kneel. Thank God an owner has the stones this year to lay down the law. For too long, the millionaire, “oppressed” players who live in luxury because they throw a ball around on a field, have had the power.
Not anymore. It’s time to start putting these whiny athletes in their place. They have every right to protest, but not when they’re on the clock. The NFL is a sports league, not a social justice league — and its fans demand it stay that way.
This will surely ignite the controversy once again, but at least the tide seems to be changing in favor of patriotic Americans…
President Donald Trump praised Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for ordering players on his team to stand for the national anthem.
“Our policy is you stand during the anthem, toe on the line,” Jones said Wednesday during a team press conference.
“Way to go Jerry,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “This is what the league should do!”
Jones said that it was important to him to make a decision after the NFL walked back their new policy as part of additional negotiations with the NFL Players Association.
“Sometimes it’s best to just be real clear and succinct so that nobody misunderstands,” he said, saying that he was making the decision for the good of the team and the game of football.
Way to go Jerry. This is what the league should do! https://t.co/yEP1jK57xi
