Cowboys' Prescott 'Scores a Major Touchdown' Against Anthem Kneelers


....... That's when quarterback Dak Prescott weighed in on the controversy saying, "I never protest during the anthem, and I don't think that's the time or the venue to do so. The game of football has always brought me such peace, and I think it does the same for a lot of people..."
He added, "...When you bring such a controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game, it takes away. It takes away from that, it takes away from the joy and the love that football brings a lot of people .....

For all of you that think kneeling during the national anthem is acceptable .. screw you too.

I think that social experiment has run its course.
I’ve stood, hand over heart and facing the flag forever.

Because I’m an American and a Vet, and it means something to me...not because of fucking Trump.

It has nothing to do with trump or any other president. It’s about respect for our country and our troops who have sacrificed for it. and they should all fucking stand with their hand over their heart or find a new job, good shit dak and Jerry Jones

I’m not a Cowboys fan at all but I applaud Jerry and Dak for this. That’s called leading and not conforming right there.

As a veteran I agree and will always do the same.

Just bc one doesn't agree with the current administration doesn't mean one shouldn't respect the country/flag.

What these players don't get is that although they have the "right" to protest, doesn't mean they are right. End of story.

Dak isn’t taking that approach because he cares about the vets putting there necks on the line so he can make millions throwing a football. He’s saying the words that he knows Jerry Jones wants to hear...it’s a big money year. He’s the starting QB for ‘mericas’ team....this season will make or break his career. But needless to say, the kneeling got everybody talking and that’s what was intended. The problem is most NFL players are under educated and don’t understand why the majority of Americans felt disrespected by there tasteless demonstrations. I don’t know, maybe make all NFL players spend at least 1 offseason in military boot camp?

I am a veteran myself and I will always stand and find it offensive when they kneel but really doesn’t upset me too much . The same freedoms that we all enjoy so much applies to everyone else and if they don’t want to stand so what this whole thing has been given too much attention if you ask me.

It's real fucking simple, keep your opinions and personal politics outside of your job.
When an NFL player is suited up on the field he is at work and on his employers time.
If he wants to protest or whatever that is great, but do it on your own fucking time not at work.

This is absolutely true.

Notice they don't do jack shit on "their" time. After the game they are off to the clubs or whatever.

I say put your money where your mouth is... you believe in this cause? Then use some of that money to do good things or donate time to make it better.

Bc so far, this kneeling shit isn't working. Fans are only hating more and more.

It’s because that’s not the real issue, the real problem will likely never change

As a USMC vet I couldn’t agree more. I stand because this country has sacrificed for me just as I have sacrificed for it. It has to do with pride and faith in my country. Ooh rah!

Doesn't everyone that plays for the Cowboys want that "$jerry jones$" money$??

Of course.. if what you're saying is that he's not really patriotic, but that he's pretending to be because he's in a contract year ...

Then I say to you .. "it's entirely possible".. unfortunately... but I hope not.

this is Dak Prescott's contract year, he wants that $jerry jones money$

Agreed with everything you say..

I'm a veteran also.. and even way before I ever served, I knew that the national anthem was sacred .. It was a time to honor the flag and what it stands for, along with those who serve, served, and sacrificed all ... So that we could enjoy the freedoms we enjoy today.. The national anthem is a not a platform to be used for political purposes.. no matter how important the topic is...

I wonder if any of the first African Americans to play professional sports in this country would agree with the anthem protests... Or what about the Tuskegee Airmen, the all African American fighter pilot unit from WWII.. what would they say.. ??

what are your thoughts on the media and player backlash, crucifying Dak Prescott over his comments that he would never kneel, and ultimately not supporting the anthem protests ???

It is the double edge sword of freedom.. and why we have to tolerate such things like anthem protests and Socialism...

I'm also veteran.. and it urks the fuck out of me to see people kneel. Not for me.. Not for you.. but the one's who left and never came back.. or came back missing arms or legs or worse. This is our moment to honor them all ... and never forget .. Never mind that these guys are all millionaires.. and thanks to freedoms afforded to all us via the Constitution (bill of rights) and backed by greatest fighting force on the planet..

Simple and effective mindset I believe..

Do your job.. then go home and protest or do what the F you want..

We agree again .... but don't tell Charley, whatever you do... Otherwise the conspiracy theories will commence ... again..

There are a lot of followers on both sides of the ball....I don’t believe Colin kaepernick even started this thing for the right reasons...he was adopted by a wealthy white family and grew up in suburban America..he captured America’s attention to an injustice that most certainly exists, but one that I doubt he ever experienced himself. As far as Prescott’s peers labeling Dak a sell out, who cares? His peers won’t be paying his bills. Prescott’s a talented kid with his whole career ahead of him. Kid seems to stay outta trouble for the most part. I don’t believe in systemic racism but obviously there are racist individuals employed in positions of authority...and a lot of these cases, which the “kneelers” are trying to spotlight are cases involving under trained and fearful police officers getting a little too trigger happy. Better state level police training would help. But so wouldn’t these over paid athletes getting more financially involved in there community’s and helping to clean it up. The “ kill all white cop” movement of Missouri didn’t help any. But for the most part I think this “race war” is hyped up by liberal media channels as the only time I ever experience this is when I watch TV or the news. None of my friends or other members of the sports leagues i participate act like this. Of course, there aren’t many hip gangster wannabes in my neighborhood either. What I mean is the black families that live around here aren’t rock bottom dirt poor and have moral codes. I think money is the difference maker in this entire discussion.

I think this story run its coarse, and people didnt get behind it cause it wasnt genuine. I really blame their managers for not advising them to stand. If you think about it Kap was making millions, and your manager takes 20%, now Kap is making $0 so his manager is gone, once you lose your contract you manager drops you even tho they take their cut up front

The only reason these athletes or celebs do these type of antics is because at the very given moment all eyes are on them or eyes are lurking the group and take notice to these individuals.. If an athlete or celeb did this on their own personal time, it would be very unlikely that they'll get nearly 90% of the same attention and buzz chattering about..

If you farted in a crowed it may go unnoticed, but if you fart in a microphone everyone will hear it!

Unfortunately, human-beings will never respect boundaries, we've had borders for thousands of years dividing nations, man-kind will never respect others and their person space and values..

1)You can't eat meat without someone picketing and calling you names while attempting to stop you from purchasing a pound of ground beef..
2)You can't vote with free will and open choice without being slandered by your own personal belief while being utterly discriminated upon with fear mongering and aggressiveness
3) You can speak or possess feeling/belief without others being offended, and thee offended gets to have their needs catered too due to the "said" offense by the other.. (this goes both ways)

This isn't about the laws of the land, or the right to ones freedoms in which causes this mass hysteria upon the masses with all topic, whether agreed or disagreed with... This all stems to people lacking a moral compass!

Man-kind, the true cancer to this planet!

PS. This is just current times, you would fall off your chair if you new the ill topics that people where divided with 70 years ago..Talk about trivial shit and a way that man-kind likes to invest their wasted attention to... Everything passes and on to the next, it will be something else in the next generation, and so on..
