Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones introduced a harsh rule that his players must stand for the National Anthem ahead of games despite new rules the NFL is set to introduce which may be more lenient. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott backed up his owner, saying protests for the anthem are out of place and take away from the game.
TMZ Sports reports:
The QB addressed reporters at Cowboys camp Friday and said he’s fine with Jerry’s new rule that forces players to stand … ’cause it’s something he’s always believed in himself.
“I never protest during the anthem and I don’t think that’s the time or venue to do so,” Dak said.
“The game of football has always brought me such at peace and I think it does the same for a lot of people playing the game, watching the game and a lot of people that have any impact of the game.”
“So, when you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game … it takes away. It takes away from the joy and to the love that football brings a lot of people.”
Contrasting Prescott’s shoe-shuffling and tap-dancing, extra-woke Philadelphia Eagles player Malcolm Jenkins said in a locker room chat that he thinks Jones is a “bully” for silencing the individual voices of his players in a report from ESPN.

Dak Prescott says that he won’t kneel during the anthem because he’s about action rather than protesting... but has he taken any action at all? Lolol— issa panoramic 🇹🇹 (@Scotty_DoesIt) July 27, 2018

Has Dak been doing the things Kaep has been doing? He's about action but I've yet to see Dak Prescott do any social justice work or even be vocal about it.— Historically Openly Black Sky Daddy (@Black_Ted_Mosby) July 27, 2018

This meeting/statement means nothing when Jerry Jones, who owns “America’s Team,” has drawn a line in the sand and Dak Prescott is out here basically saying he’s happy being a lemonade serving house negro. https://t.co/0NtE8c4oiy— Carron J. Phillips (@carronJphillips) July 27, 2018

There will ALWAYS be people like Dak Prescott. They were there on the plantation and they were there during the Civil Rights Movement. And yet because of the sacrifices of the people who pressed on, he can play in an integrated league. He’s not the first and he won’t be the last. https://t.co/kaIW6sU4D8— Remi (@bladeniran) July 28, 2018
