Dallas Cowboys Owner JERRY JONES Tells Players: “Stand For The National Anthem Or Your Ass Is Off The Team”

I personally have had enough of these overpaid, spoiled athletes trying to make political statements while millions of people are tuned in to watch a sport to get their mind OFF of politics.

It’s no secret that NFL ratings have tanked after the Kaepernick “protests.” Those protests aren’t working out too well for Kaepernick as he struggled to find even a back up QB job. Well, Jerry Jones is making sure that doesn’t happen in Dallas. He told the Cowboys players, “stand for the anthem or your @ss is off the team!”

Some people question the character of the Cowboys. Others will call out Jerry Jones. But there are a few things for sure: The Cowboys are Jerry Jones’ team and he loves his country.

Make no mistake about it, Jones expects certain things out of the players on his team. He wants commitment and loyalty. Since he pays their salaries isn’t it reasonable that he can set some expectations?

Any of the players on the team who don’t respect this have the option of not signing a contract with the Cowboys and joining another team. The other teams out there will let you disrespect the American flag, but Jerry Jones will not.

Here is that punk Kaepernick kneeling during the national anthem.

Per CBS Local:

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.

Last season, Jones told CBS Radio’s 105.3 The Fan, “I got to give a big pat on the back to our entire team, our coaching staff, our entire organization. We strongly, strongly support the flag in every way we support — and it’s almost ridiculous to be saying it — the people who for generations and generations have given it all up so that we can get out here and show off in front of millions of people on television.”

We’ll see which Cowboys are standing and still want to be employed as they kick off the NFL’s pre-season taking on the Arizona Cardinals in the Hall of Fame game on Thursday, August 3.

Reasons like this are why the Cowboys have so many rabid fans. What do you think about what Jerry Jones told his team? Did he take things too far? Let us know in the comment section.

  • Amen to Jerry, All owners should do the same thing. If any player is tht ungrateful of our country colors they don’t deserve the ridiculous salaries they are being paid. I guess they believe tha they are above the rest of us proud Americans.

  • Strange… no mention of these comments on the team’s website… wouldn’t you think they would be there?.. fake news?

  • Very proud of you Jerry I just hope all the other owners do the same thing. Players who take a knee or won’t even come on the field to honor our flag and what has been sacrificed by our military for this great country is a disgrace. The players who do not want to stand need to stay in the locker room and when the anthem is over they then can come out and let the fans boo them back into the locker room..

  • Kudos to J.J!
    I would think the entire team should understand, especially those that want to take a knee. Arent the only taking a knee to express their disagreement? So Jerry is only expressing his right to freedom of choice. Right? It is his team, right? He pays the salary to all. It is his choice. His right to run a business as he deems fit, and responsible. Those that do not agree/like his choice, have the choice to leave the team. Continue their protest on another platform. Lets not have a double standard here- the players can choose how and why they protest, then the owners of teams have the right to choose the way they want to protest.

  • United States Code, 36 U.S.C. § 301, states that during a rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present except those in uniform should stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart; Members of the Armed Forces and veterans who are present and not in uniform may render the military salute; men not in uniform should remove their headdress with their right hand and hold the headdress at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart; and individuals in uniform should give the military salute at the first note of the anthem and maintain that position until the last note; and when the flag is not displayed, all present should face toward the music and act in the same manner they would if the flag were displayed. Military law requires all vehicles on the installation to stop when the song is played and all individuals outside to stand at attention and face the direction of the music and either salute, in uniform, or place the right hand over the heart, if out of uniform. A law passed in 2008 allows military veterans to salute out of uniform, as well.[55][56]
    Copy and pasted from another patriotic DEPLORABLE AMERICAN ???? and in the words of Lee Greenwood, “God Bless the USA”!!!

  • I can’t believe the disrespect of our country’s flag is coming to the forefront by people who are extremely over paid and fortunate to be where they are. What in the hell is going on with these people, they are supposed to be role models for our kids, I would never allow my kids see anyone disrespect our country like that. Mr. Jones I thank you for your strong message to America’s Team. I wish all would follow.

  • The players have a constitutional right to express whatever they want. Freedom of speech means defending the people you disagree with. However, the man writing the checks has the bigger right to decide the conditions under which he writes those checks. Especially when his employee’s freedom of speach is effecting his profits.

  • Thank you Jerry Jones for showing for making a STAND and letting your players know what is expected of them if they want to play for the Cowboys!! Wish more owners of NFL teams had the balls to not worry about winning and worry more about showing respect where respect is deserved!!!

  • Good deal it’s true, keep politics out of sports and play the game . It’s also true and I believe as a Veteran the the American flag will be respected because as a Veteran and most with agree there’s things that we’ve seen that no others should or go thru. The individuals kneeling or not standing have a misunderstanding of America. Our freedom has a price and do many have given the ultimate price… Their lives !! Stand the F*** UP or move. Great belief system Jerry !!! Go Cowboys !!!

  • I find Mr. Jones very refreshing and I totally agree and respect him in his matter. I wonder what our military thought when they took time to tune in to any game to only see the actions of the players this past weekend! I know that when I am at home and hear the National Anthem playing on the radio or television I stand. I do this out of respect for the men and women that gave their all to make sure we are safe here at home. Thank you Mr. Jones and your team.

  • He says that then but on Monday night football he decided to kneel with the players so which side does he really stand for the guys who he pays or the people who give him there hard earned money to watch his team
