BREAKING: NFL Owner Threatens to BENCH Any Player Caught Kneeling During National Anthem

By

America has grown tired of the disrespectful and childish behavior of NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem.

And NFL owners have grown tired of losing money.

So, just a couple weeks after he led the entire Dallas Cowboys team in kneeling BEFORE (notably not during) the National Anthem in a jab at President Trump, owner Jerry Jones has issued a stern warning to all of his players: Kneel, and you won’t play. Period.

Jones told the Dallas Morning News:

“If there is anything disrespecting the flag, then we will not play. Period. We’re going to respect the flag and I’m going to create the perception of it.”


Jones continued:

“We know that there is a serious debate in this country about those issues, but there is no question in my mind that the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys are going to stand up for the flag. So we’re clear.”

According to a new survey, the NFL has gone from America’s favorite sport to its least liked sport in just two months thanks to the anthem kneeling protests.

That has translated to a lot of money lost for the league, for owners and for players who’ve been losing endorsements left and right.
