Some players around the NFL are continuing to carry on the national anthem protest started by the now unemployed Colin Kaepernick and Jerry Jones is continuing to put them in their place.
The Dallas Cowboys owner has made his stance on the national anthem very clear and so have his players. On Wednesday, Jones joined Fox Business for a quick interview in which he explained why everyone should stand for the national anthem and our flag.

“I do not think the place to express yourself in society is as we recognize the American flag,” Jones said.
The Cowboys owner also noted that it’s a time to recognize the American troops “and all the people that have made this great country” and given the players the opportunity “to even be there in front of the nation” due to to their sacrifice for our freedom.
“That’s not the place to do anything other than honor the flag and everybody that’s given up a little for it,” Jones concluded.
All the other owners around the league need to get on board and make sure their players know what the national anthem is all about.
