Cowboys Owner Just ADMITTED That The National Anthem Protests Are DESTROYING The NFL

As the National Football League’s 2017 Week 7 wound down, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spoke about the anthem protests which have spread throughout the league. Jones says that the league is suffering “negative” consequences over the continuing protests.

“There is no question,” Jones told The Dallas Morning News on Sunday. “There is no question the league is suffering negative effects from these protests:”

Jones has spoken out several times this season about the continued protests, and it is clear he is no fan.

At the end of September, Jones said that he thinks the national anthem is not the right time to mount protests against the country.

“I do not think the place to express yourself in society is as we recognize the American flag and all the people that have made this great country,” Jones said in an interview with Fox Business Network.

“That’s not the place to do anything other than honor the flag and everybody that’s given up a little for it,” he added.

By October, Jones was incensed enough with the anthem protests that he exclaimed that his team would stand for the anthem or they would not play. It was a statement that drew much criticism by the players union and several civil rights groups.

Indeed, the NAACP accused Jones of attempting to violate his players’ rights.

Despite Jones’ proclamations, though, on Sunday Cowboys defensive end David Irving raised the militant black power fist during the anthem at Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. Thus far it doesn’t appear that Irving has suffered any consequences at the hands of the team’s owner.

  1. The owners need to punish those players who have been kneeling. The owners should deduct there losses from those ignorant players. As long as they aren’t effected they won’t stop. It’s not costing them a penny.

    1. well if the fans turn the tv off then the sponsors lose. so it still comes back to the fan base. If you love this Country, turn off the NFL! These overpaid morons need to learn they are not in charge, we are!

      1. I agree 100% without fans the NFL is done!

        Donald Trump is so right so often about so much, that it is unbelievable! He is an unstoppable genius!
        Donald Trump has all the solutions! Hillary Clinton never had a clue!
        Donald Trump, the man that didn’t need to be President!
        Donald Trump, the man that America needed to be President!
        Trump-Pence, the dream team of and for the American people!
        Making America safer, stronger and greater than ever before!
        Sixteen Republican challengers couldn’t stop Donald Trump, the Democrats couldn’t stop him, adversaries in his own party couldn’t stop him, the lying liberal media couldn’t stop him, the thug protesters hired by the Democrats to disrupt his rallies couldn’t stop him, crooked Hillary, despite her underhanded cheating and attempt to rig the election couldn’t stop him, so why are so many wasting their time? Donald Trump overcame adversity never before seen in the history of an American Presidential election and no one is going to stop him! I truly believe that Donald Trump will be the GREATEST President that America has ever had! A safer, stronger more prosperous and greater than ever before AMERICA!

        1. So true I voted for Trump because he is the best man for the job of President.
          I love ❤️ all that he has done and is trying to do against all the resistance to make America great again.

  2. Mr Jones, you are a decent and honorable man, and it seems the only one who realizes what these degenerate flag/anthem protesters are doing. They are black, hate white people and think because they are rich and looked up to they can get away with anything, even being disrespectful.
    The president and the people are right. They will continue to do thus nonsense until they ruin everything the people have paid for and enjoy. You seem to be the only owner with balls to speak your mind. Goodell should be canned because he has no brain and the players will be broke looking for jobs. Since most of them came out of college only knowing football, they probably don’t know how to do anything else, like read and write.. I wish you well and hope the Cowboys are not your only source of income.

  3. P Diddy said the problem is white players, M Bennett said he is going after white quarterbacks one of you players raised the black power fist, black female singers take a knee. Some might be sincere, some might think it’s funny, but the majority are black Racist. The black Racist NFL players have lost the olive branch and have burned both sides of the bridge being Fans and owners. When advertisers stop supporting the NFL you thank your players. Continue the boycott

  4. I will not attend any NFL game or watch one on TV ever again and I will never drink another Pepsi or drive another Ford or any other product sponsor of the NFL! Fans play to see a football game not look at a-holes kneeling in protest!

  5. I will turn 48 in less than two months. That means I have been a loyal Denver Broncos fan for 40 years. I watched as they played in their first SuperBowl- oddly enough, against the Dallas Cowboys. Many of these players make more in a year playing a game than I have in my entire life. They are acting like petulant children and I won’t have it. Professional football has lost a fan.

  6. I think that BIG money destroyed the NFL. That along with the fact that they never demanded that athletes live according to the rules that we all live by. I wonder how many teams could play this Sunday if they banned all criminals form the NFL. The arrogance and disrespect was just the straw that broke the camels back. Get rid of the big money and and enforce a strict moral and ethical code and maybe I will again watch football. When it’s a game and not a big business. it NIGHT be worth it. I’ve been an Eagles fan since the early 60’s but no more. Let them all get a real job and find out about being oppressed!

  7. Tell the team members that salaries will be cut by 24 percent as attendance is down due to those demonstrating during the anthem. They will scream that they have a contract. Then tell them that they are right. However, the cut will only effect them as their contract is renewed or not renewed.
