Say What Now? Dak Prescott Backs Jerry Jones' Stance, Says Kneeling During the National Anthem Is the Wrong Way to Protest [Video]

Dallas Cowboys QB agrees with owner Jerry Jones and says the national anthem is not the time or the place to protest social injustices.

via TMZ:

The QB addressed reporters at Cowboys camp Friday and said he’s fine with Jerry’s new rule that forces players to stand … ’cause it’s something he’s always believed in himself.

“I never protest during the anthem and I don’t think that’s the time or venue to do so,” Dak said.

“The game of football has always brought me such at peace and I think it does the same for a lot of people playing the game, watching the game and a lot of people that have any impact of the game.”

“So, when you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game … it takes away. It takes away from the joy and to the love that football brings a lot of people.”

Don’t get it twisted … Dak says he’s all for fighting the battle against social injustices in America — he’s just ready to take a different step than kneeling during the anthem.

BTW … the NFL is still working on a league-wide policy — releasing a joint statement with the players association that said they’re continuing discussions on a new rule after a “constructive meeting” Friday.

What do you think about Dak’s stance?
