This is what the Cowboys stand for and why no Cowboy player has deviated to kneeling in protest of the National Anthem or flag.
Even Coach Jason Garrett commented that the National Anthem and American Flag are sacred. These two leaders have set the bar for the team
Jerry Jones has made it clear in the past that he’s not a fan of national anthem protests.
During a radio appearance Tuesday morning, the Cowboys owner and general manager was asked for his thoughts on the increasing number of protests by NFL players before preseason games this year.
“I just feel so strongly that the act of recognizing the flag is a salute to our country and all of the people that have sacrificed so that we can have the liberties we have,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan’s Shan and RJ show [KRLD-FM]. “I feel very strongly that everyone should save that moment for the recognition of the flag in a positive way, so I like the way the Cowboys do it.”
Many Americans will be watching to see if any member of the Dallas Cowboys will protest in any fashion. Jones states last September that “We [Cowboys] strongly, strongly support the flag,” so tonight will be another test for America to see their team stand against the league’s attempt to mix politics and sports.
America is waiting to see what will transpire in their next game. We can confidently predict, all Cowboys will have their heart over their chest because they are America’s Team.
Aug 1, 2017 – ORIGINAL ARTICLE – Cowboys Will Stand For The Flag or their Ass Will Be Off Team
This is why the Dallas Cowboys are my team; I love 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. https://t.co/92ipK9gZX3

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.
We’ll see which Cowboys are standing and still want to be employed as they kick off the NFL’s pre-season taking on the Arizona Cardinals in the Hall of Fame game on Thursday, August 3.
I am not angry Jones is taking this stance, I love it. If I lived in the area, I would have bought season tickets for the next 20 years based on this alone.
