Don’t expect to hear many more comments from Jerry Jones regarding standing for the national anthem. ESPN states media outlets are reporting the famed owner of the Dallas Cowboys has been told to keep quiet in regards to player protests going forward.
Reports from Dallas state a member of the Fox4 News team was told that he could not ask Jones questions about the anthem by a PR official for the team, resulting in a cancellation of the interview. Additional outlets held interviews with the owner but did not speak toward the issue.
Just last week, Jerry Jones stated his team’s rules varied from those that the NFL is looking to place in practice regarding the anthem. “Toe on the line” Jones stated about players on his roster and the potential decision to stand or not for the national anthem.
The policy is currently placed on hold as both the NFL and NFLPA work to see what is suitable for the league and players going forward.
