The Dallas Cowboys owner made headlines this week when he announced his athletes would be required to stand at attention during the performance of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner,’ adding that his players would no longer be permitted to “disrespect the flag.”
“I know this, we cannot … in the NFL in any way give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag,” Jones said. “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. So we’re clear.”
According to Fox News, Jemele Hill has been suspended from ESPN for two-weeks over her incendiary comments and provocative statements.
