I'm getting tired of hearing about these overpaid professionals not standing for the National Anthem.
Don't the owners of these teams have any balls?
They should be telling them, when you are working for me YOU stand for the National Anthem it is required as part of YOUR job. YOU have 2 options, donate your salary for each game YOU refuse to stand or YOU can go play in the CFL.
I am now a Jerry Jones fan:
Jerry Jones went into the locker room before the Cowboys Giants game yesterday. He looked around at all the young men and addressed them as a group. “Regardless of your personal opinions, this is a sacred day that we recognize the sacrifice and pain that so many have endured. When the National Anthem is played by a lone trumpet player in a few minutes you WILL stand and you WILL put your hand over your hearts.” Jerry waited a second and made eye contact with several players to make sure his words had sunk in. He knew he had there undivided attention and proceeded. “You gentlemen are world class athletes, but you are also actors. You perform on a stage that is 100 yards long. Today, you play the role of a patriotic super hero. You will play this role well because you know that millions of children will be watching and looking at your example.” Then his inner fire started to shine through as he said quietly “but most of all I want you to remember, you are the actors, but this is MY stage and you will play the role I tell you to.”
Jerry Jones is a douchebag. But EYE gotta give him credit.....he is a douchebag with balls.
@hackerboywhile little OGEE gets rich, it is time to start contemplating the manner in which the Puke will make us puke this year. Eye would say that there have been 8-10 Puke teams that could have won the Super Bowl. Each team has choked and puked away the opportunity whether it was in the SB itself or on the way.
How will they do it this time? Wide left? Hail Mary? Humiliating performance? Too many men? Taking a knee? Out coached again?
Maybe it will be something new. It usually is.
With Blair still on the team, history could repeat.
