Dallas Cowboys Kneel Down in Arizona – Crowd Boo’s – NFL Implosion Complete…

The Dallas Cowboys, together with team owner Jerry Jones, take a collective knee at the start of the Monday Night Football game to display their unity with… well, something probably.  Stick a fork in the financial future of the NFL, it’s done; finished.

The only thing that was saving the NFL from full organizational collapse was the advent of Fantasy Football Leagues and the subsequent betting and fan-based league play therein.

Never underestimate the inability of any business organization to inoculate itself with idiot resistant policies once they enter the arena of identity politics.  It has always been thus:

.

There is something hilarious in the face of team owner Jerry Jones looking so smug. He thinks he’s figured out how to navigate this insufferable financial minefield. He didn’t. Now watch the slow-motion financial implosion… that smug look will change quickly as he watches his organizational bank account drain; which will be faster than it took to take the knee he promised would never happen. By Thanksgiving, we’ll see. Bigly.

I’m sorry, but I can’t stop laughing. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

      Jerry has done the math SD. I left as soon as Kapernick started pulling his stunt and it escalated. There were others like me which is why the ratings went down last year. The ratings have stayed down because we’re not coming back. I think Jerry only figures he’ll lose another 10% max and may even pick up some more liberal viewers to offset any further damage.

      Donald Trump issued not just a direct challenge for the players to stand but for us to hold the damn line if they don’t. Enough with the excuses; read a book. If these bastards are smiling after the Super Bowl because the American people have no will power or discipline it’s going to be painful on all of us that love this country.

        I did the same, luke. Have been a rabid Redskins fan since sitting on my dad’s lap watching the games 50 years ago. Last year when all this nonsense started, I walked away. It breaks my heart — I have such fond memories and used to plan my weekends around what time the game was on.
        Out of curiosity yesterday, I googled “Redskins knee”, and the photo was like a knife through the heart. It sealed the decision I made last year that the NFL was dead to me, but I had held out hope that maybe “my” team would have been different.

A lot of us have been screaming from the hilltops that was happening, and we were called fools or worse. The sad fact is that Jerry probably thinks this is something that just happened, something that a new policy can fix. The truth is, there’s nothing he could do to help or change this. He thought he was standing on bedrock and never saw the cracks. Now it’s crumbling and he’s falling. Doomed.

      Instead of organizing in their communities to lower crime, improve schools, and heal families, they blame America and protest the anthem.

    There never was a win-win out from this once they started letting the political protests take over the game last year. At that point there was no way out for the NFL to win and the fans to win. The only win-win was and still is to take all protests out of football. Play pure sport.

    Cowboys’ Team, Ownership Make Joint Demonstration Before National Anthem
    http://www.dallascowboys.com/news/2017/09/25/cowboys%E2%80%99-team-ownership-make-joint-demonstration-national-anthem

    @HelmanDC

    GLENDALE, Ariz. – Given the events that have unfolded all across the NFL during Week 3, all eyes were on the Cowboys on Monday night – and not just because of their game against the Arizona Cardinals.

    Protests over racial inequality, centered on the national anthem, cropped up across the league on Sunday, following comments made by President Donald Trump on Friday night. In light of incendiary comments made by the President, players on every team in the NFL opted to demonstrate during the anthem. Some teams, such as the Pittsburgh Steelers and Seattle Seahawks, opted not to take the field at all during what has become a pregame tradition.

    For their part, the Cowboys opted for a display of team unity across the entire organization. With Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones front and center, the full Jones Family joined the Cowboys’ coaching staff and players in linking arms down the length of the field.

    In the moments before the singing of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the full organization briefly dropped to one knee together. After several seconds, they stood and retreated to the sideline for the national anthem.

    It was a demonstration unlike any of the others seen across the league over the week, and it was in keeping with the Cowboys’ comments on the issue. Both Jones and Cowboys coach Jason Garrett have said in the past that they believe in the sanctity of the American flag. The decision allowed the Cowboys to make a team statement on the issue – albeit not during the anthem itself.
    Win or lose, the demonstration will undoubtedly be a topic of conversation following the Cowboys’ game against the Cardinals.
