Dallas Cowboys’ Jerry Jones has become the first NFL owner to publicly come out and take a stand about disciplining players for any future offense to the US flag or the anthem.

Mr. Jones: “If there is anything that is disrespectful to the flag then we will not play. You understand? If we are disrespecting the flag then we won't play. Period. We're going to respect the flag, and I'm going to create the perception of it. And we have."

After the walkout of VP Mike Pence during the 49ers-Colts game, it was clear that questions would be asked to owners of NFL teams

About a dozen San Francisco players took a knee during the anthem, which caused Vice President Pence to walk out as he stated he could not stay in a place where the flag was not respected.

President Trump tweeted in support: “I asked @VP Pence to leave stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country,” Trump wrote. “I am proud of him and @SecondLady Karen.”

Mr. Jerry Jones was asked for a reaction to the events: "We cannot in the NFL in any way give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag. I know the vice president did leave because in his opinion the teams were. We know that there is a serious debate in this country about those issues, but there is no question in my mind that the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys are going to stand up for the flag. Just so we're clear.”

The legendary owner of the Cowboys continued: "I'm saying our vice president, if in his opinion, there's disrespect of the flag then he should express himself however he wants to say. He's got rights, too. He felt that not standing for the flag is disrespectful. I do, too. The league in my mind should absolutely take the rules we've got on the books and make sure that we do not give the perception that we're disrespecting the flag."

Finally after months of this Far Left Faked cause, the law of diminishing revenue returns has kicked in. The fans love America values, more than the now growing Now Far Left (NFL).

It may be to late for the NFL to recover. It is not to late for the game of football. Football is still an important martial game. It is used by America to build strong values in players, so that they can be successful in the future.
