When it comes to the Dallas Cowboys policy on his team standing for the National Anthem, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not going to repeat himself.
Well, actually, the Dallas Cowboys owner is not allowed to repeat himself.
That’s because the NFL has ordered him to stop talking about the national anthem policy.
According to the report, Jones was scheduled to talk to several television stations on Sunday but told them that he would not answer questions about that topic.
Jones also said that the Cowboys policies about the anthem were not permitted.
Jones sparked controversy last week when he said that his players will stand on the field during the national anthem this upcoming NFL season, going against a league policy on the issue.
"Our policy is you stand during the anthem, toe on the line," Jones said.
The NFL and NFL Players Association said they had reached a "standstill agreement" last week on the anthem policy, adding no new rules would be "issued or enforced for the next several weeks."
Seems a bit hypocritical to me.
I mean, just because the NFL has no idea how to enforce the policy doesn’t mean they should stop someone who knows exactly how they want to deal with it.
