“If we are disrespecting the flag then we won’t play. Period.”
It seems that every other article is about the NFL players now. That’s fine. This is something that we as Americans need to take notice of. These people are paid millions of dollars to entertain us, not make a political statement.
Most of us know that Jerry Jones is a supporter of President Trump. However, two weeks ago, Jones, his family, the coaching staff, and the rest of the players took a knee before the national anthem in what looked like a compromise for not kneeling for the national anthem. Arizona fans booed, but the cowboys all got up and went to the sideline as the nation’s flag was stretched across the field.
Sunday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers was a sight to see, but let’s not get into my hatred of “America’s Team,” or the fan base.
After the game, Jones was told about two players raising their fist during the national anthem. He responded by saying:
“I don’t know about that. But if there is anything that is disrespectful to the flag then we will not play,” Jones said after the Cowboys’ 35-31 loss. “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.”

My question to Mr. Jones is, how can you claim that players will sit, but compromised two weeks ago, and showed pure disrespect towards the President of the United States? I feel the NFLPA got to him and raised concern about the players’ first amendment right to express themselves however they would like. That would be a problem if this were true. I’m not saying it is true, but something seemed fishy. I could be overreacting, but when you have people like George Soros, who is actively teaming up with the NFL union to push a false narrative, and encourage these players to kneel is a concern to me.
The Washington Times Reported About George Soros Being Active In The NFL Protest:
“Clearly, ‘social activism’ by NFL players includes aligning with George Soros and other liberal organizations like Planned Parenthood in support of the left’s agenda,” said 2ndVote, a conservative watchdog group.
The NFLPA issued a statement in support of players who have protested racial injustice by sitting or taking a knee during the national anthem after Trump suggested in a Sept. 22 speech that team owners should fire those who refuse to stand.
When you put it that way, it all starts to make sense. The NFL union is pushing a hardcore liberal agenda, and like most unions, they’re running the people they represent. I’m only 27, but I remember in the late ’90s watching football with my Dad, and watching the Jets fly over, and how patriotic every game would be. Now, all we see is kneeling. What a shame. I hope and pray that all of this nonsense comes to an end, and the NFL gets back to doing what they do best: playing football.
