Jerry Jones speaks out against NFL players protesting anthem

Jerry Jones speaks out against NFL players protesting anthem
jerry-jones-speaks-out-against-nfl-players-protesting-anthem

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Tuesday came out strongly against the continued practice of NFL players protesting the national anthem before games.

“I just feel so strongly that the act of recognizing the flag is a salute to our country and all of the people that have sacrificed so that we can have the liberties we have, as transcribed by The Dallas Morning News. “I feel very strongly that everyone should save that moment for the recognition of the flag in a positive way,” Jones said, so I like the way the Cowboys do it.”

Jones’ stand against anthem protests echoes the opinions expressed last week by Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, who referred to the anthem and the flag as “sacred.”

The Cowboys owner also reinforced his own comments from last season when he referred to the protests as “disappointing.”

The protests of course were spawned by Colin Kaepernick after he began kneeling during “The Star-Spangled Banner” last season.[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/arthur-brown-jersey-authentic]Womens Arthur Brown Jersey[/url], Other players followed suit and the practice has continued this NFL preseason, among others, with players such as Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett and Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, continuing the trend.

The protest took another step in turning into a full-fledged movement Monday night when 12 Cleveland Browns players knelt during the anthem as five others stood nearby in a show of solidarity ahead of the team’s exhibition match-up against the New York Giants.

Ezekiel Elliott suspension: Latest news, updates before appeal hearing

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott's off-field trouble has been the story of the offseason,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthentics.com/arthur-brown-jersey-authentic]Authentic Arthur Brown Jersey[/url], and it's the reason he will miss a big chunk of the 2017 season.

Elliott was suspended by the NFL due to his involvement in an alleged domestic violence incident with an ex-girlfriend. Following the suspension,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/tyler-lockett-jersey-authentic]Authentic Tyler Lockett Jersey[/url], the NFL and the NFLPA made the situation more contentious after the league accused the players' union of victim-shaming in preparing its testimony,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/germain-ifedi-jersey-authentic]Womens Germain Ifedi Jersey[/url], and the union hit back.

Elliott's suspension is set to be the longest domestic violence suspension the league has levied. In 2015,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/c.-j.-prosise-jersey-authentic]Authentic C.J. Prosise Jersey[/url], the NFL suspended then-Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy for 10 games in a domestic violence case, but the suspension was later reduced to four games by an arbiter.

Elliott's appeal will be heard on Tuesday, Aug. 29, but there is no timetable for when the NFL will make its decision on whether to reduce his suspension.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell appointed Harold Henderson, a former league exec who has heard many cases involving the NFL's personal conduct policy, [url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/jarran-reed-jersey-authentic]Womens Jarran Reed Jersey[/url],in 2014, to hear the Elliott appeal. Henderson is best known for hearing the appeals of Hardy and, running back Adrian Peterson, whose suspension was upheld by Henderson before it was overturned in federal court.

"The league office tells PFT that the Commissioner’s decision will be reviewed under the 'arbitrary and capricious' standard,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/tyler-lockett-jersey-authentic]Womens Tyler Lockett Jersey[/url], which means that it would be overturned only if deemed to be arbitrary and/or capricious. This implies that the question will simply be whether the Commissioner got it sufficiently wrong that it seems random and without rhyme or reason.

"For Elliott,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/germain-ifedi-jersey-authentic]Authentic Germain Ifedi Jersey[/url],[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/jarran-reed-jersey-authentic]Authentic Jarran Reed Jersey[/url], which is something Goodell didn’t do in making the original decision. This presumes that the NFL will actually be introducing its evidence,[url=http://www.seahawksfootballauthenticss.com/c.-j.-prosise-jersey-authentic]Womens C.J. Prosise Jersey[/url], the real question is whether Henderson will attempt to resolve the credibility of the witnesses, including testimony from Tiffany Thompson."
