NFL Stands for National Fools League

Jerry Jones

President Trump continued his criticisms against National Football League players and executives who took a knee or protested before this week's games. He said that the decline in viewership is due to players protesting during the national anthem before games, alienating fans.

"Spoke to Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys yesterday", Trump tweeted.

The Rams and 49ers played Thursday, before Trump took to Twitter over the weekend blasting players who kneel and called for them to be "fired or suspended".

Several teams, like the Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers, the Dallas Cowboys, and New England Patriots, said that they'll stand for the anthem from now on.

Trump says that when players kneel during the anthem "they're not respecting our country".

But, this didn't stop him from standing up for his players and kneeling before the national anthem was played during the pregame preparations on Monday night in Arizona.

In so doing, they joined numerous other players and teams in the NFL, who were responding to President Donald Trump's remarks Friday night, during which he criticized protesting football players who have chosen not to stand.

While audiences shrank Sunday for NBC and Fox, the viewership boost from the Cowboys, one of the league's most popular teams, helped lift NFL ratings out of an early-season ratings slump.

"You can not have people disrespecting our national anthem, our flag, our country", Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for a trip to Indiana.

Jones is a former star player for the Dallas Cowboys, and he says he's proud to see so many teams rallying together.

"Big progress being made - we love our country!" He added that while he would prefer Cowboys players stand, there is no mandatory order.

"For people to disrespect [the military] by kneeling during the playing of the national anthem, I think is disgraceful", Trump said.

More than 250 players knelt during the national anthem over the weekend as a nod to peaceful protests for racial equality that Colin Kaepernick began previous year.

Kaepernick, who is unsigned this season, began dropping to a knee during the national anthem previous year in demonstration against police brutality and injustice. "Make no mistake about that", Jones said.
