Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Reportedly Tells Players – ‘Stand for the Anthem Or You’re Off the Team’

Well, we know one team that quarterback-without-a-home, Colin Kaepernick, was probably never going to be signed by – the Dallas Cowboys.

According to CBS local radio in Southern California, team owner Jerry Jones has made it clear to players that if they’re going to take a knee during the national anthem, then they’re going to be doing it for another team.

This is a separate sentiment being relayed as coming from Jones, as another quote was misattributed to him in recent years regarding the anthem.

Via KFROG:

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.

 

Actor James Woods responded to the alleged quote saying “the Cowboys will always have my loyalty.”

 

Following a game on September 11th, 2016, Jones expressed pride in his time for universally choosing to stand for the national anthem.

“I got to give a big pat on the back to our entire team, our coaching staff, our entire organization,” Jones said. “We strongly, strongly support the flag. In every way, we support — it’s almost ridiculous to be saying it — the people that for generations and generations have given it all up so we can get out here and show off in front of millions of people on television. We respect that so much. That’s the real business.”

“The forum of the NFL and the forum on television is a very significant thing,” he added. “I’m for it being used in every way we can to support the great, great contributors in our society and that’s people that have supported America, the flag, and there’s no reason not to go all out right there. For anybody to use parts of that visibility to do otherwise is really disappointing.”

 

A recent survey showed that viewers attributed the Kaepernick-led anthem protests to a decline in NFL ratings the past year.

Twenty-six percent of viewers said they watched fewer games because of the national anthem protests being held by entitled millionaires.
