Dez Bryant On Cowboys National Anthem Protest: "Trump Can't Divide This"

Posted October 01, 2017

There have also been calls for boycotting National Football League games until players stop taking knees.

"It wouldn't surprise me if the participation and the recognition of unity and recognition of equality, it wouldn't surprise me if that were a template going forward in the NFL", Jones said.

The silent testimony came after the entire Cowboys team, including their owner, knelt and locked arms with one another in a demonstration of unity prior to Jordin's singing of the national anthem.

Numerous teams have been kneeling or locking arms before games after Trump sparked anger by saying protesting players are disrespecting the United States flag and should even be fired. As a result, players on almost every National Football League team showed some type of solidarity by kneeling or linking arms before Sunday's games.

In a second tweet, though, Trump noted the team stood for the anthem itself and described that as "Big progress". They all stood up during the anthem.

The former American Idol victor wrote on her left hand a reference to Proverbs 31:8-9 as she belted out the national anthem at Monday night's Dallas Cowboys game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Donald Trump says that there is no beef between him and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Trump wrote, adding that "ratings for NFL footballare way down".

To wrap things up, Jones spoke briefly about the Cowboys game against the Rams on Sunday.

Trump's comments festered over the weekend and by the various game times on Sunday, roughly 200 players sat, knelt or raised their fists in defiance during the anthem.

Some owners explicitly criticized Donald Trump for his denunciation. It's entirely possible that Jones said he'll be pushing for other teams to do the same thing as the Cowboys did before the anthem.

I think most of America was surprised to see "America's team" protest the comments made by President Trump in such a fashion.

The take-a-knee action, inaugurated by ex-San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick last season, is meant to protest against police treatment of blacks and social injustice.

"I can't say enough about the understanding and the awareness of our team and these young men that basically said, 'That makes sense".
