    Cowboys have a team meeting about Jerry Jones' anthem edict

    Cowboys have a team meeting about Jerry Jones' anthem edict

    Signing Colin Kaepernick wouldn’t be any more of a distraction than what Jerry Jones dumped on his unsuspecting Dallas Cowboys team this week.

    The Cowboys are 2-3 and probably don’t need to be wasting time worrying about the national anthem, but that’s the situation Jones put them in. With some oddly timed comments after Sunday’s loss, Jones basically said players who don’t stand for the anthem won’t play.

    The players seemed blindsided by it, and had a team meeting Wednesday to discuss it according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. These messages from an unnamed Cowboys player to ESPN’s Josina Anderson are telling:

    I would love to see a significant player revolt.

    It would be great to see both Garrett and Jerry squirm.

    Seen in response to a recent Brandon George tweet, A LOT of the comments were people saying Jerry is a slave owner and calling him masta etc.

    Why is there outrage over Jerry saying he won’t tolerate it, but not the NBA commissioner denouncing it for NBA players?


    And again, wtf is the “protest” actually accomplishing?

    We have lost back to back home games and these guys are worried about kneeling for the Anthem? God this loser team is fucked. No wonder they look so unprepared.

    Very disappointing response by the team.

    I mean seriously, this is when they should be banding together and working extra hard to bounce back. But instead it comes off as they don't give a shit that they are 2-3 and are more concerned about things other than football

    This is where it gets a little ridiculous. Half of these players probably think the protests are more important than their jobs.

    Calling attention to some social issues that are important to you is fine in some respect, in a proper venue.

    But it's waaaaaaay out of proportion that these people think this is as important as the 1960's civil rights movement, and that they are betraying people if they don't stand up for the causes, and that it's more important than their jobs. False, false, false.

    How much time does it take to draft a statement telling players to stand? 15 minutes? Not issuing a statement won't make this mediocre team any better.

    I'm not even sure what changes they are proposing American government make? Since they are supposedly protesting America and their injustices.
