Crowd Boos As Entire Cowboys Team, Owner, & G.M. 'Take A Knee' In Arizona

In an apparent demonstration of unity, the entire Dallas Cowboys team, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones, as well as executive vice presidents Stephen Jones, Charlotte Anderson and Jerry Jones Jr., all decided to 'take a knee', notably before the national anthem was sung.

Boos were heard from the crowd in Arizona which reportedly included a large number of Dallas fans...

"...as they take a knee collectively, boos can be heard from this sell-out crowd in Arizona..."

As ESPN reports, Jerry Jones and his daughter, Charlotte Jones Anderson, said their players wanted to take a knee as a statement for equality and unity, but also wanted to separate that message from the national anthem.

A little less than an hour before kickoff, Jerry Jones said he respected the players "individually and collectively," but he did not want to get into the political element of the debate.

"We want them to do what's in the best interest of the Dallas Cowboys," Jones said.

 

"That's where the obligation is and again I don't want to get into this area of debate but I do want to emphasize how important it is to me that we respect the sanctity of the flag."

Jones was one of seven NFL owners to donate to Trump's inauguration.

Only thing dumber than the NFL and it's vile players is the dumb white shitbirds who watch NFL, NBA and NCAA Trayvon rapist and thug ball games. Dumb whites who watch that Trayvon thug ball game shit are pathetic.   The white college ball team fans are the most pathetic.  Supporting rapists like Jameis Winston.

 I had multiple windows open and posted his to the wrong thread..   You can kiss that “America’s Team” label goodbye. BLM’s Team  ????? Al Sharpton’s Team ???     whatever. I cannot believe the idiocy there.   Q: So, how did you lose most of your customer base? A: Slowly at first and then all at once. But it was the ESPN thread and kind of blended right in.    :-)

i like both sides of this brawl: one faction sides with the players, owners and becomes less susceptible to flag and anthem symbolism and, perhaps, the military, wars, clandestine services and operations often mixed up with flag and anthem.  good.the other sides with flag and anthem symbolism and opposes the spectator sports cash cow that so nourishes the legacy media, making all these interdependent parts of the political establishment weaker.  also good.

What other important worldly developments are we being distracted from by having this non-important, discussion of symbolism, sucking up the airwaves and sticking as the number three story on zero hedge?I personally, can think of a dozen reasons why no one should stand for the anthem or US flag, and especiallly the pledge of allegiance.  It takes just about every fiber in my bones to stand up for the anthem, but I  am not that brave, and do not want to create a scene for those I am with.  But i don't cover my heart.OT:  Why is the concept of less government, less government force, never advanced as a solution to problems created by the government's monopoly of force?    Oh yeah....  Nevermind.

Agree 100%.  It has become so boring it is like wathcing paint dry and there are three minutes of commercials for every 3-4 minutes of actual sports viewing.  MLB and NBA lost me long ago, NHL, NFL and College last year.  If it is not doping or performance enhancing drugs it is very questionable officiating and coaching that effects the outcome of games.

I agree...However I think it takes awhile for all this to sink in...That audience has been in a trance for soooo long and they paid money.As they watch they will begin to see how stupid it all is...Like a South Park episode...They will then begin to see what a pathetic waste of time it is...They have to go through all the stages like an alcoholic!

i've refused to spend a single red cent in any way on professional sports for years because the billionaire owners have their hand out for taxpayer funding for a new stadium every few years. during the peak of the whole detroit bankruptcy fiasco, when they were saying they would have to auction off the art museum's works, the city still found a way to pony up something like $400 mil for a fucking stadium. i am the SHEPWAVE of boycotting, i guess.

I could not have said it better Arch....look at Detroit, Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas, Houston.  Cities that were and are a mess; high murder rates, extreme poverty in certain portions of the city, outdated sewer and water systems, crumbling roads and bridges and unfunded pension plans yet all of them bowed to billionaire owners and had the taxpayers foot $250mm - $300mm publically financed stadiums where the owners did not put in one dime.  All on the promise from the politicians that "it is good for the city, it brings in $xx dollars of revenue" 8 weekends out of the year and spurs the local economy.

Those stadiums in the middle of the ghetto provide target-rich environments for the usual suspects to rob, rape, and murder their white cuck victims.  Niggaz in the hood LOVE these white taxpayer-funded projects.  It's like a free candy store just down the block.  The niggaz on the field rob, rape, and murder.  the niggaz on the street rob, rape, and murder.  The owners of these teams indirectly rob, rape, and murder.  GUESS WHO IS BEING ROBBED, RAPED, AND MURDERED?!?

Iraq was a third world hellhole run by a ruthless dictator who was holding down the Islamic barbarism of its inhabitants.The only way to really make that country a success would have been to Christianize it, maybe we would have had the moral strength to do that in 1800, but not today.  So based on that understanding the best we could have done was leave it well alone and hope Saddam was replaced by a reformer like Assad, then perhaps Iraq might slowly become less Islamic and hence more civilized.
