The NFL has been feeling the consequences of their actions. If they want to make their leagues all about politics, that is their right. However, maybe it’s about time they stop complaining about their ratings going down the tubes or the fact that many NFL stadiums are half empty come Sunday. Yes, it is their right to protest, but it is our right to boycott. That is what we are seeing.
President Trump talked about the many NFL woes that are currently happening. He mentioned how the owners in the NFL need to start doing more to make these protests stop. He called on them to fire any player who takes a knee during the anthem.
Now one owner has taken it upon himself to get this problem fixed once and for all. Jerry Jones, the outspoken owner of the Dallas Cowboys (also known as America’s team), has come out with some big words against these protesters.
Jones basically said that anyone who wants to protest the anthem will be gone. Players have complained about this. Doug Baldwin noted that owners “have told their players to do specific things or to not do specific things… regarding the national anthem and the protests.”
“The one quote that I was informed of was, ‘you’re going to stand on the line with your hand on your heart and you’re going to sing the National Anthem because this is my stage,’” Baldwin added.
But Jerry Jones is not going to back down. He talked about what the flag means to him and his organization.
“We strongly, strongly support the flag in every way we support – and it’s almost ridiculous to be saying – the people that for generations and generations that have given it all up so that we can get out on television.”
“There’s no question in my mind. The national anthem is sacred. Our flag is sacred. And our team has demonstrated that,” he told reporters near the training camp.
At least there is one owner that continues to do the right thing despite what is going on around him. At this point, it’s peer pressure. What do you think?
