After a protest filled Sunday, all eyes were essentially on the Dallas Cowboys to see if any player would dare kneel or raise a fist after outspoken owner Jerry Jones voiced his opinion about the situation.
The Cowboys did indeed shock the world as they came out with arms linked and then everybody from the players, to coaching staff, to even Jerry Jones all kneeled at the same time BEFORE the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ played.
The entire team rose for the playing of the National Anthem.
It didn’t quite matter as fans threatened to not root for the team any longer even though the team basically straddled the fence on the hot button issue. One guy took his anger out on his Cowboys hat. He doused it in gas and set it on fire.
