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