Dallas Cowboys Kneel Down in Arizona
– Crowd Boo’s –
NFL Implosion Complete…

The Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:greggojo, 9/25/2017 10:14:18 PM

The Dallas Cowboys, together with team owner Jerry Jones, take a collective knee at the start of the Monday Night Football game to display their unity with… well, something probably. Stick a fork in the financial future of the NFL, it’s done; finished.The only thing that was saving the NFL from full organizational collapse was the advent of Fantasy Football Leagues and the subsequent betting and fan-based league play therein. Never underestimate the inability of any business organization to inoculate itself with idiot resistant policies once they enter the arena of identity politics.

Cowardly hypocrites protesting this great Country that gives them the freedoms they are demanding.

I am glad the crowd booed.

And I knew Leftist Dale Earnhardt Jr. would pop off in support of the NFL thugs. Sad. Glad he is retiring this year. Not a fan.

This behavior is not going to stop at the start of the game. It is going to be on the field, in the end zone, in the announcer´s booth. I cannot see any way that I can enjoy watching this game any longer.

WHY? I really don´t understand. I don´t hear white people demanding that there be an equal number of white players on each team. They get paid very well for playing football. Most of the people in the stands are white. They put out a lot of money during football season to watch the game. I remember after 9/11 when the entire Congress went out on the steps and sang "God Bless America" , land of the free. They were being patriotic. Saluting our flag and standing during the singing of the SSB is patriotic. What is wrong with these people! They are doing a disservice to America. Shame on them!

So are they going to put on this pathetic display every week? Since the SJW crowd decided to frame it as anti-Trump, they´ll have to keep it up until at least January 2021.

Sundance is absolutely correct again. Jerry and his ´Cowbro´ gangstas will take a mighty hit on many fronts:

1) "Bury My Franchise at Bended Knee" will be the book written about this stunt, which will destroy most of the Owners´ wealth. Their partners (no one owns an entire team) will be FURIOUS at the limousine liberals.

2) Mexican illegals, now being deported by ICE, form a significant block of merchandise buyers. Getting genuine NFL paraphernalia in Mexico City is next to impossible.

3) Texans already hate Jerry Jones. It was unthinkable he could be hated more than he already is... but he continues to confound his critics. He´s toast.

4) The already horrifically overpriced stadium, "Jonestown" will never again see a packed house.

5) Most NFL Teams will be required to move to new (aka "desperate") cities in order to curry favor with new suckers.

Jerry might want to get some gang tats and rasta braids, while he´s at it.

Here’s my take on it. They all locked arms and took a knee for unity before the NA. Unity in support of exactly what, I’m not sure. As far as I’m concerned they all could have done head stands and played Indian leg wrestling in unity before the NA. But during the NA they all stood and locked arms and I even saw some singing along. Fantastic! At any rate it’s now 28 to 17 Dallas with 4:57 to go. Dallas kicking off. Go Cowboys!

This is a sad day for me. As a kid, my cousins lived across the street from Peter Gent, the Dallas player who wrote the "semi autobiographical" "North Dallas 40". He was our hero (good, bad or indifferent) and the Cowboys have ever since been
"My Team"! (good, bad or indifferent) and believe me, I´ve taken a LOT of flack for that. Well, those days are past. I did tune in for about 45 seconds tonight but just had a funny feeling ( score was 7-0, whoever they were playing) and I turned it off. Sorry Cowboys, you´ve ridden off into my sunset... this IS a sad day for me. You know the reason... SxS

#15 I respectfully disagree. I´ll tell you what they took a knee for. They took a knee together meaning they were unified in their believe that America is still a racist country and that there is rampant police brutality against blacks! That´s what taking a knee meant to Kaepernick and the other black players. The message is the same only they didn´t do it during the National Anthem. You were conned as were others is my guess.

The protesters and the NFL are protesting the wrong thing. They should be protesting racism. Not the nation. Their efforts are misplaced. The NFL and the protesters have lost the good will of much of the nation, and its going to cost them. The NFL will lose viewers. The race protesters have lost all support except for the left.

Clearly a sign from the owner of the Dallas Cowboys that he wants his cake and to eat it too. The NFL is now about 80% African-American as far as their on field talent goes these days, and clearly no team owner can afford to get sideways with his African-American players if he wants to continue to have a successful winning team, because if those players will no longer go all out on the field for those owners, the owners know they will find themselves in deep trouble. The owners have now put themselves in a vulnerable position where they could have their pockets picked by circling race hustlers.

A slight shift away from the wrong direction: to make spurning of the national anthem the means of protesting.

Who is protesting the lack of respect for authority, law, and lack of cooperation with the men and women in blue who are being abused every day by growing numbers of citizens and illegals? The painting of the whole class of law enforcement officers as evil because of the wrongs of a small minority?

Who is protesting the dangerous dissolution of the spirit of this country, which is necessary for us to defend the rights of the individuals?

Et tu, Cowboys?

We could accept armbands or such, but not disrespect for our flag, anthem, and country.

They say that they want to start a conversation about racism and oppression. That is pretty much all we have been hearing for the past eight years.

Enough of this.

I believe PDT knew something about the USFL. Perhaps he can help bring it back - sans the politics. For the time being, let´s hope that college football does not fall into this trap.

Apparently, these teams feel like you have some sort of mandate to watch and support them instead of them being there for your entertainment.

As the article says, I hope they lose "bigly", and the sooner the better. Let´s see how much activism the Owners are willing to tolerate when the stadiums continue to be half-empty or mare and the sponsors beg off.

As Our Lightbringer BarackHussein used to say - let´s be clear: they are protesting the fact that Donald Trump outsmarted the frigid rape-enabler and won the presidency, making anyone who supported the frigid rape-enabler, even if you can catch a football, look like a damn fool. Instead of getting down on just a knee, they should be throwing themselves in the mud, where they belong.

I see the Cowboys did a “thing” by kneeling before the Anthem. I n OCS we called that quibbling. Sort of not telling a lie, but not telling the truth. Sorry you kneeled and you go to the bad side. It may not be much, but I will enjoy doing my part by having nothing to do with the NFL. All of it. It was not a prayer.

Time for the kneelers to put their money where their minds are and address income inequality by sharing at least half their salaries with the underprivileged in their local communities. Much easier to virtue signal at the expense of the national anthem and fans than to take a hit in the wallet on behalf of your less fortunate neighbors, right?

So many posters have the wrong information about this--

They actually "Tebowed" to show reverence in prayer BEFORE showing REVERENCE for the FLAG and the National Anthem

They were showing team unity in supporting prayer for the nation and in respecting the flag--

And they are unifed as a team to PLAY football without the distractions of political correctness.

And the WON even though Larry Fitzgerald had an AMAZING game!

If they were actually "praying" over something, why did they choose to emulate the very action, kneeling, that generated this controversy? I have prayed standing before.

No, this was a Jerry Jones too-cute-by-half "solution" that speaks out of both sides of its mouth. They really do think that we are idiots.

It would probably drive home the point that the fans want entertainment not activism at the games if after the National Anthem was played the fans just walked out of the stadiums leaving the seats empty.

Shouldn´t be too hard to do, sort of like the ´wave´ where one fan starts it and everyone else follows.

I attended my High School reunion this weekend. It was my sister´s 50th. I´m not quite that old. During the opening assembly; we pledged allegiance to the Flag, we sang the National Anthem, and we prayed. This West Texas community is typical small town America. Progressives, liberals, socialists, whatever you want to call them being driven by Hollywood and the media are trying to rewrite history. We love G_d, our flag, & our guns. We don´t discriminate against people of color or of religion. There´s a group of very bad people trying to pit Americans against one another. The left´s promotion of identity politics makes for discrimination and victimization. It must be exposed at every turn.

Baloney. The heck "they were praying". Anyone gullible enough to believe that deserves the NFL of today. They were just trying to have it all. To play both sides. To stand for nothing and get away with it. It makes the Cowboys worse in my book. Professional sports and the people who play them need to see the real world. It´ll be tough because Burger King is automating they might find it tough to get a job they´re qualified for.

#42..No such thing. Jones and the Cowboys knelt in "unity", so said the announcer who never said anything about what the "unity" meant.
After watching what happened around the NFL on Sunday it´s very apparent the "unity" was for the players who have the "right" to protest the National Anthem and to take a swipe at the POTUS. Enough.

Jerry Jones is a huckster. He´s playing some 3-D chess, too. His ´Boys STOOD for the anthem, although bent a knee in homage to whatever BLM myth this is all about. Jerry´s got this under control down in Big D.

He´s playing both sides, as he always does.

President Trump is not a long-term threat to the existence or viability of the NFL. As the Commander in Chief, the President has a duty to defend the National Anthem, the American flag, and other longstanding patriotic symbols of the country by ensuring that they are not disrespected.

The real long-term threat to the future existence of the league are the leftist Democrats who would use the brain injury factor as predication to simply ban high school, college, and professional football or in the alternative transform the game into a non-contact sport.

Fire officials said Saturday that wind gusts up to 45 miles per hour could further spread the massive blazes across Northern California that have been ravaging the region for almost a week. Saturday’s winds are forecast to be similar to those that stoked the first flames Sunday night, which have mushroomed to more than 15 fires that have scorched 220,000 acres, destroyed an estimated 5,700 structures and caused at least 35 deaths.

Note in Las Vegas gunman´s hotel room

A note found in the hotel room of the man who shot into a crowd from his perch in a Las Vegas high-rise included hand-written calculations about where he needed to aim to maximize his accuracy and kill as many people as possible. In an interview airing Sunday on "60 Minutes," three police officers who stormed Stephen Paddock´s hotel room in the Mandalay Bay hotel tell correspondent Bill Whitaker new details about the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. The officers were the first to see Paddock´s body and the arsenal of weapons and ammunition he had stockpiled.

In addition to his frequent forays into casinos and gun shops, Las Vegas strip killer Stephen Paddock took 20 cruises, many of them in Europe and the Middle East, investigators have learned. The cruises included stops at ports in Spain, Italy, Greece, Jordan and the United Arab Emirates, according to information provided by a law enforcement source who asked not to be identified because the source was not authorized to share information about the investigation. Paddock´s girlfriend, Marilou Danley, accompanied him on nine of the cruises.

The Islamic State continued insisting that they have a connection to Sunday night´s massacre in Las Vegas with the publication of an infographic about the crime filling the second page of their 16-page weekly newsletter. Today´s release marks the 100th issue of al-Naba, which is distributed in ISIS territories and online via mediums such as Telegram and social media as a PDF. ISIS claimed through their Amaq news agency Monday morning that the "Las Vegas attacker is a soldier of the Islamic State who carried out the attack in response to calls for targeting coalition countries."

Just as they once did for Bill Clinton in the wake of all his sex-harassment scandals, the Democratic Party establishment is closing ranks to defend another big lecher among themselves, this time Democratic Party megadonor and Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, in complete contravention to their stated ideals about ´equality. ´You´d think a guy like Weinstein would be a pariah if Democrats actually believed any of their stated platform about women´s rights.

The gunman who opened fire on a country music festival in Las Vegas may have wanted to survive and escape his attack, but a hotel security guard who approached his door and attracted the shooter´s gunfire appears to have stopped the massacre, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Wednesday. “His bravery was amazing," Lombardo said of the Mandalay Bay hotel security guard, who continued to help police clear guests from the 32nd floor of the hotel even after being shot in the leg by the gunman through the door of the gunman´s suite.

Yet another study is out showing New York City charters outperforming the regular public schools — even as Mayor de Blasio keeps on working to stifle charters’ growth. The study, by Stanford University’s Center for Research on Education Outcomes, used test scores to compare the gains of 75,000 third- through eighth-graders in 197 city charters to those of their traditional-school peers between 2011-12 and 2015-16. It found an average charter kid displays growth in reading “equivalent” to 23 extra school days; for math, it’s 63 extra days. Every. Single. Year.

The Las Vegas gunman’s girlfriend returned to the U.S. overnight after a weekslong trip abroad and was met by investigators seeking to question her for clues to what drove Stephen Paddock to slaughter 59 people from his high-rise hotel suite. More than two days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the question of why someone with no known record of violence or crime would open fire on a country music festival was unanswered.

Linebacker C.J. Mosley wasn’t surprised when the hometown fans booed at M&T Stadium while the Ravens took a knee Sunday before the national anthem. But the actions of the crowd, he said, did show him something. “Even though it was supposed to be a silent prayer, it was mainly boos,” Mosley said.”But it goes to show that it has nothing to do with the anthem. “We stood up for the anthem because we respect the flag and respect the veterans and everything that got misconstrued with us taking a knee last week.”

With ticket sales plummeting, TV viewership cratering, and their "brand favorability" dropping like a stone, the NFL league office hosted a meeting yesterday among league officials, the owners, and players to find a way off the ledge the players have placed the NFL by protesting the national anthem. While no specific course of action was agreed to, several teams last weekend all stood for the anthem, linking arms as a show of unity against Donald Trump´s criticisms.

Two teenagers were stabbed — one fatally — in a troubled Bronx school Wednesday morning, and a third teen is under arrest, according to police. Investigators believe an argument between the 15- and 16-year-old victims and their 18-year-old attacker turned violent around 10:50 a.m. on the fifth floor of the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation on Mohegan Avenue in East Tremont, sources said. The 16-year-old was stabbed in the chest and pronounced dead on arrival at St. Barnabas Hospital, and the 15-year-old is fighting for his life there, sources said.

Hillary Clinton slammed what she called "endemic" sexism and misogyny in America during an interview with Fareed Zakaria, which aired Sunday. Clinton, who was interviewed by Zakaria on his show, "GPS," said sexism was so inherent that she purposely hadn´t highlighted her career history of fighting for women´s rights when she ran for president in 2016. However, she admitted that with the benefit of hindsight, she "could have tried harder" to do so. "I´m a middle-class girl from the middle of the country, and so I always struggled with like, OK, so what´s my story. And it suddenly dawned on me that

Mallory, a co-chair of the Women’s March on Washington, was traveling home to New York when the pilot followed her to scold her over an argument she had with a gate agent. He then had her summoned from her seat and kicked off the flight, she told the Daily News. “It definitely was white male aggression.

Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended NFL players who knelt during the national anthem, saying kneeling is a “reverent” position that is not against “our anthem or our flag.” The former Democratic presidential candidate, who was at the Southbank Centre´s London Literature Festival, urged Democrats to use the issue against President Trump. Clinton was embarking on a foreign trip to promote her book “What Happened.” She said people should resist “what are very clear dog-whistles” to the Trump base, pointing to the example of kneeling NFL players. “That´s what black athletes kneeling was all about,” she said in response to a question about ways to

If the NFL thought Americans would ease the backlash against the league — they were sadly mistaken. Photos of empty stadiums from around the league show how dire a situation kneelers have spurred. (Photo) Breitbart News reports: Note, that the Jets played New England on Sunday, meaning there should have been a big crowd for that game. The Texans, Atlanta, and Baltimore are also very relevant teams with relatively loyal fan bases. Yet, thousands upon thousands of fans no-showed or didn’t buy tickets for those games.

Sure, it´s been more than 340 days since Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton, but there´s still one very narrow, highly unlikely and entirely unprecedented way that Clinton could become president. And it has some Democratic die-hards dreaming again.

Colin Kaepernick has filed a grievance under the collective bargaining agreement for collusion against NFL team owners, reports Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report. Kaepernick has hired high-profile attorney Mark Geragos and is preparing to release a statement about his grievance soon, added Freeman. The free-agent quarterback has remained unemployed since his release by the San Francisco 49ers in March and has garnered little interest from teams around the league. This has caused some to suggest he´s being blackballed for his national anthem protests during the 2016 season. Kaepernick appeared in 12 games for 49ers in 2016, throwing for 2,241 yards with

The Clinton Foundation told DailyMail.com it will not return as much as $250,000 in donations from Harvey Weinstein, saying on Sunday the money had already been spent on the organization’s programs and used for charitable purposes. The foundation’s decision comes as politicians and philanthropic groups grapple with whether to return donations they have received from Weinstein, after numerous women stepped forward this month to accuse the movie mogul of sexual assault, harassment and rape. Over a dozen Democratic politicians have said they will give back or donate Weinstein’s campaign contributions to charity. The Clinton Foundation faced questions about Weinstein’s funding after Hillary Clinton
