Jerry Jones: Cowboys' display could be 'template' for NFL

The Dallas Cowboys led by owner Jerry Jones far right take a knee prior to the national anthem prior to an NFL football game against the Arizona Cardinals Monday Sept. 25 2017 in Glendale Ariz

After, what might be called, a turn of events and Dallas Cowboys kneeling, Donald Trump addressed the public via Twitter: "Spoke to Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys yesterday".

Jones, who has been outspoken about his feeling that the national anthem should be reserved for respect of the flag, was on a knee with his players before the singing of the national anthem.

Arm-in-arm, they dropped to a knee as a giant flag was carried onto the field, with Mr Jones and his family in the middle near the 50-yard line.

Dak Prescott wants to detach himself from politics.

More than 200 NFL players kneeled, sat or prayed during the national anthem on Sunday after Mr Trump said any player who does not stand for the national anthem should be fired. The team stood with arms interlocked as Jordin Sparks sang the anthem. He said the front office came to the players with suggestions on how to proceed, and they asked the players for their own suggestions as well. "I'm not here to judge what the president said".

Elliott capped the scoring with an eight-yard touchdown run. In another 8 weeks when revenue and ratings are down and some teams will obviously not be post-season bound you'll see some changes. Some guys felt the need, they knelt. I respectfully disagree, completely.

For the fifth straight day the president denounced the symbolic gesture, which has been adopted by some black players in the past year to protest against racial disparities in the criminal justice system.

The Dallas coach praised his team's ability to balance game preparation with multiple discussions over the Trump-fueled issues, despite the slow start. "To me, the National Football League situation is a very important situation". "We didn't execute to the level we needed to". Prescott got hit at the last second and launched into the air.

"It brought back memories of Denver", Jones said. You failed. You had a chance to turn this tide and you blew it.

I think athletes, owners, coaches and any other sports personality all have the same right to express their First Amendment Rights, but the better question should be why do we normal people really care what an athlete has to say?
