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.

  1. The Dallas Cowboys just picked up a new fan!! Thank you, Mr. Jones. As the owner of the Cowboys, you have every right to ask this of your players. They are your employees and you pay their paycheck!

    A close family member serves in the Air Force and is getting ready to go on his second tour of duty soon. He, his family, and all of our service men and women sacrifice a great deal so that Americans can have the freedom to make the choices they want.

  2. this is awesome!!! too many owners and employers are so afraid of setting america values expectations. they are extremely over paid athletes who bask in the opportunity on which other red blooded americans continue to give their lives to provide. i say the heck with kapernick, even his parents who are white and gave an opportunity he would’ve never had are shunning him. thumbs up for JJ

  3. Jerry Jones should be the standard bearer for all the NFL team owners. Sports are a way of taking your mind off the everyday stresses of life. When one of these multi-millionaire athletes feel the need to express their opinion it should be very easy for them to sit with a reporter and express their opinion. They should not be allowed to make their protest during a game and ruin the game for the people who pay their salary by supporting the sponsors that pay for the broadcast.

  4. I have never been a fan of Dallas, until now God bless the owner now IMust split my allegiance to two teams Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys
