Jones: Proud of Cowboys' statement about unity, equality during anthem

The Cowboys kneel and link arms before the game

Donald Trump is not done hammering on NFL players who protest during the national anthem and seemed to imply Wednesday that he had assurances at least one team would no longer allow it.

That all these things are true says everything you need to know about Jones the businessman and consensus builder.

The Dallas Cowboys were in the spotlight for the third time in this young season, playing a nationally televised game.

Interestingly, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said this to Comcast Sports New England when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started taking a knee for social justice during the anthem past year: "As you know, the NFL has a long tradition of patriotism".

President Trump tweeted on Wednesday that he spoke with Jones on Tuesday about the matter.

It's good for business that the Cowboys not alienate a fan base that is upset with the player protests during the anthem.

After Monday's game, Jones explained his team's actions.

President Donald Trump has praised Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for brokering a compromise with his players over the "taking the knee" protests.

As Mike Fisher of Dallas Cowboys on Scout.com, reported before the game, the team was planning to make some sort of statement during the anthem.

When @dallascowboys knelt pregame it was in prayer for equality and unity, not during anthem. The entire team kneeled in unity prior to the anthem, then rose and stood for the entire song.

The Cowboys were among a majority of teams whose players either stood arm-in-arm or took a knee during Sunday's National Football League games after Trump in a speech on Friday night urged owners to fire those who fail to stand in protest during the anthem. I don't think you can disrespect our country, our flag, our National Anthem.

The president noted in a tweet on Tuesday that the crowd at the Cowboy's Monday night game booed when they kneeled, but went on to praise the team for standing during the anthem .
