Is Jerry Jones the biggest hypocrite in the NFL?
Let's take a look at the rubric for Cowboys' owne. Employing a convicted a domestic abuser is okay. Playing athletes who are peacefully protesting racial injustice is a no-no. Does that sound fair?
It makes Jones look even worse for kneeling a couple weeks in "unity" with his players before the national anthem. After a conversation with President Donald Trump, Jones fell back like a coward in the face of authority instead of standing up for what's right. Jones is a hypocrite of the highest order.
Bottom line: it isn't a good look for the NFL when its players protest during the national anthem. As much as anyone wants to talk about unity, people are making it known they don't appreciate the protest with their wallets. Viewership has dropped, and it may result in a loss of money for the league. Jones is a business man, and he has a responsibility to protect the Dallas Cowboys brand. If it means stopping these protests, it is what has to be done. People may not like it, but Jones is doing the right thing, by putting the flag over protests.
