Trump has been pretty clear on how he thought the league should handle the ‘kneeling controversy’.
In a league where leadership has been so hard to find, here’s what the President thought of the Cowboys owner’s new stand.
‘Our policy is you stand during the anthem, toe on the line,’ Jones in Oxnard,California, where the Cowboys opened training camp this week.
Jones’s son Stephen, the Cowboys’ executive vice president, took the position a step further Thursday, telling KTCK 96.7 FM that players need to stand ‘if they want to be a Dallas Cowboy.’
‘We certainly are supportive of them when they have their personal issues or their personal things that they want to pursue,’ Stephen Jones said. ‘And we’ll help them pursue them on Tuesdays. But when you’re wearing the Dallas Cowboy uniform and a Dallas Cowboy helmet and you’re working for the Dallas Cowboys, you check the “I” and the “me” at the door, and you’re a part of a team.’
Well said, Jerry…
What did the President have to say?
Way to go Jerry. This is what the league should do! https://t.co/yEP1jK57xi

If leaders had stepped up like this on day one when Kaepernick decided to hijack the sport as a platform for his own agenda, the NFL wouldn’t have seen so many of their fans walk away.
