Skip to comments.Will the Dallas Cowboys all Stand for the Flag?
Posted on 09/25/2017 2:21:45 PM PDT by GOP Congress
I am going to a local sports bar with my 82nd Airborne Division vet hat, and a tshirt that says "Stand and Deliver" with a picture of Dallas Cowboys standing in front of a background of the flag.
At this time I'm not watching any other NFL game.
HERE IS MY DECREE:
If all the Cowboys remain standing, I will remain a fan and watch their games.
If any Cowboy refuses to honor the flag, I will forever stay away from the Dallas Cowboys, and hence the rest of the NFL, UNLESS Jerry Jones fires him on the spot. But I will leave the bar with drink left on table. The game is not important at this point.
This is NOT about "the right to protest," at least to me. If you wish to protest, then I have the right to ignore you...and the rest of the league... forever.
If you want to use your platform to solve problems, don't piss off the very people you need to help solve such problems. Yes, racism is a problem, though it is more pronounced through socialist anti-family agendas, but I digress. This is not the point of this proclamation.
I speak for virtually every long-term Cowboy fan. I have never called it "America's Team," as that was a euphemism that was overly used; everybody has their own team that doesn't need the imprimatur of the entire country.
However, I now say it with sad irony, that Dallas will, indeed, be "America's Team" FOR REAL, if they are the only team left standing for the flag.
I am no big overall Trump fan (not enough conservative statesmanship that fail to deliver), but in this regard it is not about Trump. It is about our very soul of the country, for which it stands.
I repeat: Any Cowboy kneels, it is the death of my participation with the NFL, UNLESS Jerry Jones fires the malcontent. This is MY bar. This is MY "protest." This is MY "Conscious-raising moment."
God Bless America, and hopefully, Go 'Boys!
Jerry Jones is on record as saying his players will stand for the anthem or be fired. Guess we are about to learn whether he means it.
Jerry Jones also signed Michael Sam.
So what's the policy on running a tab and do you got nachos?
I hope they show patriotism. I hold out hope because I like Dak and the owner seems to have a backbone. If they cave......dead to me.
I hope he keeps his word. I hope he has the police escort them from the stadium.
NFL better get your head out of your arrogant ash and know your customers!
Any marketer will tell you that you should NEVER shite where you eat!
Perhaps the Cowboys have the distinct opportunity to save THE GAME!
Applaud your stand on this and hope your team stands as well.
I am here for the nachos.
That’s not exactly what he said.
As much as I hate the Cowboys I hope they stand.
Hope the Cowboys stand for the anthem.
I’m afraid the Cowboys are going to disappoint us tonight. Just guessing but I think they will all stand but do that arm linking thing which I think is just like kneeling. Just my 2 cents.
Well said sir.
If Jerry Frickin’ Jones doesn’t stand up to this nonsense the NFL is lost.
Isn’t that what the Dolphins did yesterday and they try and pretend that it’s a good ‘middle ground’?
Here’s what I want, since this thread is about wishes.
I want just one kneeler to be escorted off the field!
And I want these mental midgets to come tell Chicago how important black lives really are, when 40 are shot in a weekend, the screams should be deafening. Oh never mind, none taken out by a cop, so they really don’t matter at all.
Cowboys or Commies? There’s no third way.
