The NFL has been in a serious pickle this week, as a number of their overpaid man-children are vying for attention in the most despicable way possible.
What began as Colin Kaepernick’s hateful message to American law enforcement at the behest of Black Lives Matter has transformed into something else entirely this week, after President Donald Trump let rip a scathing take on the National Anthem kneelers of the league. Now, the liberal “resistance” has infiltrated the NFL, with a great many players using the Star Spangled Banner to offend and annoy Americans simply to garner recognition on national television.
This anti-American protest has infuriated a great many football fans, and the NFL has found themselves dropping attendance and revenue at a record pace because of it.
Now the Dallas Cowboys, often colloquially referred to as “America’s Team”, have proven themselves once again worthy of the mighty moniker.
“Goodbye interlocked arms, farewell raised fists, and see you later bended knee. The Dallas Cowboys will have no further use for those things because, starting Sunday, the Cowboys will simply stand during the anthem for the rest of the season.
“That’s the word coming from Cowboys wide receiver and team leader Dez Bryant, who told Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, that the Cowboys are done with anthem demonstrations.
“’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. ‘You all know what that was, that was just a response to Trump and that’s all that that was.’
“Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones had emphasized how ‘torn’ he was over the decision of how to handle the team’s conduct during the anthem last Sunday. Eventually, the Cowboys decided to kneel just before the playing of the anthem, and stand for the actual playing of the anthem.”
While the rudimentary brushing off of the entire protest was a bit disheartening, watching our nation move on, and watching our players respect the anthem once more is certainly worth the annoyance of last week.
Come Sunday, expect more talk of who is and who isn’t standing during our sacred song, and continue to watch the Rams and 49er’s struggle to give tickets away, while the Dallas Cowboys rally around our nation and our flag to once again stand as exemplary role models and citizens of our nation.
