The Game Puts Dak Prescott On Blast Over NFL Anthem Protest Stance

The Game Puts Dak Prescott On Blast Over NFL Anthem Protest Stance

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Monday that the National Football League has told Jones to stop talking about the anthem publicly.

The issue erupted in 2016 when then-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began protesting police brutality, social injustice and racial inequality by kneeling during the national anthem.

Jones' remarks at the Cowboys camp news conference last week might have bene the last we hear from him regarding the anthem policy for some time.

Jones speaks in a lot of group settings, and many reporters won't care if the Cowboys rather nobody ask Jones about the anthem.

"I completely accept that, " Jones said.

Jones informed several local TV stations who had booked him for Sunday night interviews from the Cowboys' pre-season training camp in California that he'd been barred from speaking on his zero-tolerance policy, prompting the Dallas-area Fox affiliate to cancel their hit.

Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins responded to Jones' words by calling the Cowboys owner a "bully", adding that Jones would "intimidate and thwart even the idea of players thinking individually".

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones continues to draw criticism for his stance on NFL players protesting the national anthem.

"We feel strongly about how we deal with it and we'll do so accordingly, but, yes, I, like everybody, would like for it to go away", he continued.

"It's ridiculous", Sherman said. "The issue is what's best for the game and certainly what's best for the Dallas Cowboys".

The topic of National Football League protests has been highly controversial and divisive on whether or not players should protest.

Jones also said last week that he does not believe it is appropriate for Trump to intervene in the NFL's anthem policy.

"Jones loves and respects the national anthem so much, that when it was being played before the start of practice Saturday, he left his cap on". And when he was told about the mistake he was making, he still left his cap on.

Either way, Jones isn't likely to change his mind - unless the league issues an order regarding that as well.
