Well this was clever. People are freaking out because “America’s Team” took a knee before the game in union tonight. BUT they didn’t do it during the National Anthem.
They did it beforehand, so that they wouldn’t insult the flag.
Well shoot. It looks like they squared the circle. They showed solidarity with each other, they recognized some sympathy with the cause of Kaepernick, but they did it WITHOUT insulting the National Anthem, or the flag.
VERY CLEVER JERRY JONES!!!
It didn’t keep some in the stadium from booing though.

And people who want to be outraged will be outraged.
Jerry Jones & the Dallas Cowboys exercised their rights by kneeling tonight.— Ryan Saavedra 🇺🇸 (@RealSaavedra) September 26, 2017
I will exercise mine by throwing my NFL gear in the fire pit.🔥
In a year, the Dallas Cowboys have gone from wanting to wear helmet stickers for honoring slain police officers to protesting against cops.— Razor (@hale_razor) September 26, 2017
Seeing a lot of Trump fans ripping into the Cowboys – they’re invested heavily in division.
The entire Dallas Cowboys team took a knee prior to the National Anthem to show they all hate America. Even their own fans booed them!— Makada 🇺🇸 (@_Makada_) September 26, 2017
Dear Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys...— Mark Pantano (@TheMarkPantano) September 26, 2017
With all due respect, of course. pic.twitter.com/Da7a3RitLH
And that’s how they deceive people – you can’t see that the Cowboys didn’t take a knee DURING the National Anthem in a picture.
And that’s why politics is a sewer right now.
