ESPN Host Suggests Jerry Jones Benching NFL Players Is Like Slavery


ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” host Michael Wilbon compared Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to a slave owner after Jones told players who were planning to kneel for the Anthem shouldn’t bother to come out of the locker room.

Wilbon objected to Jones’ comments and planned actions.

“The word that comes to mind, and I don’t care who doesn’t like me using it, is ‘plantation’,” he said. “The players are here to serve me, they will do what I want no matter how much I pay them.”

“They are not equal to me. That’s what this says to me and to mine,” Wilbon said, imitating what he assessed as Jones’ thoughts.

Another jerk from the non-political ESPN?


  1. Slavery, hell! It’s a job, don’t do what the Boss says you get benched. He could fire you. But, quitting before getting fired, good. Good luck at doing whatever you went to college for!

  2. I anxiously await a walkout. ESPN is inciting that. The leftist media, and the leftist player’s union, are attempting to seize control of the league.

  3. If these millionaires are living on a plantation in slave conditions, I want to live under those conditions.

    Slaves? What a joke. How about ‘conditions of employment’? We all have them … oh wait, that’s right, NFL players don’t work for Jerry Jones or anyone else. I forgot! They’re above all that stuff! Wait, they’re slaves on a plantation and they’re oppressed! Oh no! They have to stand for 90 seconds for the anthem! Oh no! How racist! lol …

    They just look more and more idiotic. It’s a beautiful thing to see on display.

    May the NFL continue to burn …..

  4. This is an insult to my slave ancestors. Really ? Comparing slaves to multi million dollar earning professional athletes?
