Jerry Jones, entire Cowboys team kneel before national anthem

Jerry Jones, entire Cowboys team kneel before national anthem”

It came after the National Football League front office, Patriots coach Bill Belichick and QB Tom Brady also commented on President Trump's criticism of players who don't stand for the "The Star-Spangled Banner".

"The NFL has all sorts of rules and regulations".

President Donald Trump resumed his sparring with the NFL early Tuesday, asserting there was the loudest booing he "had ever heard" when the entire Dallas Cowboys team dropped to its knees ahead of the national anthem at a game Monday night near Phoenix.

For the fifth straight day the president denounced the symbolic gesture, which has been adopted by some black players in the previous year to protest against racial disparities in the criminal justice system.

Every single Dallas Cowboys player, along with owner Jerry Jones, his family and team staff, interlocked arms and took a knee at the same time prior to the playing of the national anthem on Monday Night Football. In the MLB, the Oakland Athletics' Bruce Maxwell became the first professional baseball player to kneel during the "Star Spangled Banner".

Paul Ryan, the most senior Republican in the U.S. House of Representatives, said he also disapproved of the gesture. "My own view though is that we shouldn't do it on the anthem".

Hillary Clinton, Trump's ex-rival in the 2016 presidential contest, blasted Trump for targeting black players and stoking racial tensions.

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick first kneeled during the national anthem past year, refusing to stand to protest police shootings of unarmed African-Americans.

Specifically, Sparks wrote "Proverbs 31:8-9" on her left hand, which was shown while she was singing the national anthem.
