That is my kind of owner along with the coaches and players we need in NFL. We are a team coach, players, and fans. Football players you are, but also little boys look up to as heroes. So remember that you are a role model and to teach what is right. Give honor and respect always and always stay humble.

President Trump said Wednesday that he’s spoken with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, calling him a “winner” and suggesting his players will stand for the national anthem – a day after the president called out the team for its kneeling protest.
“Spoke to Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys yesterday. Jerry is a winner who knows how to get things done. Players will stand for Country!” Trump tweeted.
Cowboys are America’s team but not if they don’t fully and completely respect the flag at game time. If there is any protest, I suspect you will be held in contempt by your current fan base. I will abandon you.
If a team owner is paying players’ salaries, he has a right to demand that they stand up and be respectful for the National Anthem! Do you agree? If you cheer for an athlete who would kneel rather than standing upright during the National Anthem and you lost a loved one who wore a uniform defending the flag, what does that say about your integrity, principles, and values?
I support the Dallas Cowboys and hopefully, you will continue. I do understand if some of you have chosen to walk away and I support you too. I know Jones is a 100 percent “love of country” patriot. Let’s see what the Cowboys do from here on in.
