Trump was right all along… the athletes who are protesting the National Anthem are totally DISRESPECTFUL AND UNPATRIOTIC to the country that has given them so much.
This is why the NFL announced that teams will be fined if players kneel for the US national anthem under a new policy. The policy now allows players who would not wish to stand to remain in the locker room, but also stipulates that individual teams have the right to implement their own anthem protocols. The revision also orders that any violation of the league’s policy will result in fines for the offending franchise.
And it seems that this rule is working.
Quarterback Dak Prescott has never been one of the protesters and doesn’t plan on starting any time soon.
“I’m glad they came to an agreement in some form or another,” Prescott told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram after Wednesday’s practice. “I’ll be out there standing.”
The quarterback hasn’t indicated that Jones or the organization had pressured him to speak, and doesn’t seem particularly concerned about the issue.
Keep in mind that Prescott is only scheduled to make only $630k this season, and he and the team have had discussions about an extension.
It has no effect to me because I do exactly what I’m doing and what I’ve said and what I stand by whether I was wearing the star or not or whether I was playing for Jerry Jones, Stephen Jones or any other owner,” Prescott said. “I believe in what I believe in, and that’s that.”
“I never protest,” Prescott continued. “I never protest during the anthem, and I don’t think that’s the time or the venue to do so. The game of football has always brought me such peace, and I think it does the same for a lot of people — a lot of people playing the game, a lot of people watching the game, a lot of people who have any impact of the game — so when you bring such controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game it takes away.
“It takes away from that, it takes away from the joy and the love that football brings a lot of people,” he added.
“I believe in what I believe in and that’s that.”
Dak Prescott offers his stance on why he chose to stand for the anthem last year and how he has no plans to change that this year.

t is sad that some NFL players dishonor the United States of America and all that this nation stands for. They picked the wrong forum and manner on this issue. The national anthem and flag are honored at sporting events for veterans that served and gave their life for our country.
It is pretty simple, stand for the NATIONAL ANTHEM!!
After all, people pay to watch a game, not protests and not players. Players get traded, retire, the game is bigger than them.
