The NFL is concerned about the Black Lives Matter as they refuse to allow the Dallas Cowboys request to honor five murdered police officers in Dallas.
The reason is obvious. They are afraid they will make the violent, angry people upset.
Maybe the quiet angry American should start speaking up louder than the loons.
The Dallas Cowboys want to show support for the five Dallas police officers tragically murdered in July for just being in uniform, by sporting helmet decals for the 2016 season, however, the NFL is stepping in to shut the movement down early.
“Everyone has to be uniform with the league and the other 31 teams,” executive vice president Stephen Jones said after practice Wednesday. “We respect their decision.”
The excuse is they are afraid of setting precedent but we all know what this is about. They set precedent when they made their players wear pink during the entire month of October.
The Dallas Police sent out a response to the ruling opposing their request:
“We appreciate the support of the Cowboys organization and its players,” the statement said. “Their concern for the families of our fallen officers, the Dallas Police Department, and the City of Dallas is what matters most, and we know that support will continue for the immediate and long term future.”
The Cowboys will be allowed to wear the decals during training camp but not during pre-season or regular season games.
