NFL Cowboys owner Jerry Jones went into the locker room before the Cowboys vs. Giants game on 9/11 with a strong message for his team.

In the locker room, Jones huddled the NFL players together and gave a passionate speech to the group.

“Regardless… of your personal opinions, this is a sacred day that we recognize the sacrifice and pain that so many have endured. When the National Anthem is played by a lone trumpet player in a few minutes you WILL stand and you WILL put your hand over your hearts.” Jones said.


Jerry waited a second and made eye contact with several players to make sure his words had sunk in. He knew he had their undivided attention and proceeded.

“You gentlemen are world class athletes, but you are also actors. You perform on a stage that is 100 yards long. Today, you play the role of a patriotic super hero. You will play this role well because you know that millions of children will be watching and looking at your example.”

Then his inner fire started to shine through as he said quietly “but most of all I want you to remember, you are the actors, but this is MY stage and you will play the role I tell you to.”

  1. With 9/11 aside, do you understand the reasoning for the protest? Are you showing some type of unity regarding those reasons? Or are you going to continue to support injustice to the so called,”land of the free, home of the brave”. You continue to carry on about a flag but are not voicing the disgust of violence against woman, minorities and children.

  2. Jerry Jones is a fascist anti-democratic Monster. I hope he gets sued cause he forces this racist anthem on everyone. The 3rd verse of the Star Spangled Banner talks about hunting down and killing runaway slaves. Frances Keys was a Slave Owner and vicious racist. “No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.” – We’ve been ignoring the facts that this is a racist anthem written by a violent racist for a long time.- Do you think descendants of Black Slaves or Chinese Slaves are supposed to feel “Patriotic” about this murderous song? Knowing this history how can any decent White Person celebrate this song of murdering slaves? – Think about it please.
