Dallas Cowboys 'will stand for country'

The Dallas Cowboys played the Cardinals in Arizona Monday night.

Cowboys players - joined by team owner Jerry Jones - kneeled on the field before the national anthem; then they all stood and locked arms during the anthem.

"It was a team thing". How can [the team] in front of a national audience show unity and a statement of equality.

Hillary Clinton, Trump's ex-rival in the 2016 presidential contest, blasted Trump for targeting black players and stoking racial tensions. It's a mix of, different races. And because there isn't a clear solution to race in America, I don't see it ending anytime soon. You just can't do that. I felt like that was needed. "Last week we got hit in the mouth pretty good". We're not going to let a guy like that tear us apart.

"We owe our government not just our taxes, but we owe them our respect and our prayers", Jeffress said. Receiver Dez Bryant carried several defenders into the end zone with a helpful push from center Travis Frederick.

He said you have to "return the presidents call at some point". "We did not want to appear divided on the sideline with some standing and some kneeling or sitting". "Even if they didn't always agree with those views". We feel like that was some dumba- sh- he said.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said during his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan (KRLD-FM) that he had spoken with Trump after the Cowboys' show of unity on Monday night.

Other players and coaches indicated that their teams would discuss as a group how they want to proceed next weekend during the anthem.

Goodell says nothing when Kaepernick first kneeled, or now that it appears he is being blacklisted from the league, but when President Trump makes his opinion known, and it was his opinion, he releases a statement.

In the face of scrutiny surrounding his relationship with President Donald Trump in the wake of the National Anthem protests around the NFL, Jones has said and done all the right things to remain on the right side of the spectrum in the eyes of many.
