Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints Will Stand For National Anthem On Sunday

Posted October 01, 2017

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed Friday that he did speak with President Donald Trump after Monday night's NFL game at which the team and owner kneeled before the national anthem.

When asked if he had any response to Trump's comments, he said "I want our actions to be louder than words".

"You can not have people disrespecting our national anthem, our flag, our country, and that's what they're doing".

Having written all of the above, I firmly support the proper respect for OUR National Anthem and OUR American Flag.

"They were very much aware that that statement, when made or attempted to be made in and a part of the recognition of our flag, cannot only lead to criticism, but also controversy".

In a Sunday tweet, President Trump responded to the National Football League protests by saying that they make for "bad ratings", and called for players to instead stand "with locked arms", rather than kneel.

On Twitter Wednesday, Trump says the two spoke Tuesday.

Some owners - including Christopher Johnson from the Jets - stood strong on the sideline in locked arms with their players during the anthem last Sunday. President is confident that he will come out as eventual victor in this battle stating that "players will stand for the country". For me, it is a moment to honor all those who serve in our military and all those who served before them, many of whom gave their lives so we might enjoy that freedom to stand to sing together.

Protests during the national anthem came into the limelight when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick staged a silent protest during the 2016 preseason when he first Saturday.

"That's between them, I guess", Prescott told the Morning News. Turn on ESPN or FOX Sports and there is a discussion on kneeling, sitting or raising a fist during the national anthem and/or Donald Trump.

"I didn't see anyone protesting in front of the White House or protesting in front of the Congress or protesting in front of police officers", he said after a long pause.

Korean War veteran Russell McCann, on the other hand, said the National Football League protests have discouraged him from patronizing the sport.

Jerry Jones donated $1 million to Trump's inaugural committee, Politico reported.

"We're going to stand, we're going to stand and going to put our hand over our heart and we're going to do what we did before", Bryant said.
