It was a great opportunity to honor the fallen police. Until the plan hit a roadblock.
We all remember that night in Dallas where the cops were ambushed — murdered — while keeping protesters safe.
It’s a hard and thankless job. The Cowboys had a great idea to show how much their hard work was appreciated. And then the rules lawyers got involved.

The “Arm in Arm” decal was a red, white and blue star with the slogan above it, but the Cowboys are banned from wearing the decal during any preseason or regular-season games, according to Sports Day.
The decal’s inspiration came as a response to the massacre of five Dallas police officers in July.
“Everyone has to be uniform with the league and the other 31 teams. We respect their decision,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the media.
However, the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation was not pleased with the NFL’s decision, according to TMZ Sports. (RELATED: Clay Travis: ‘Nobody Saves More Lives For Black People Than The Police’ [VIDEO])
