Jerry Jones' anthem protest compromise would be no compromise at all

In the end, it probably shouldn’t have been a surprise.

In late May and early June, as NFL teams and franchise owners released statements condemning the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police and some even took action, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was silent.

Dallas released a video on social media on June 4 that featured some players and community leaders with the line, “Difficult dialogue moves protest toward progress.”

Jones wasn’t part of the video.

After his comments on Tuesday, it’s hard to believe he has been part of any “difficult dialogue” either.
