To Stand Or Not To Stand? Dallas Cowboys Demand A Stand Of All Players

Michael Bennett is an NFL player that has been extremely outspoken on his ideas of the national anthem and how it can be divisive. However, the Dallas Cowboys are about as American as a team can be. They want Bennett on their team but they have a requirement that is being stipulated in the contract: stand for the national anthem.

The NFL team doesn’t want another crusader like Colin Kaepernick to create an embarrassment, and for good reason. So, they have given Bennett a choice to make. If he wants to play for the team, he has to agree to this stipulation.

There have been plenty of NFL players of color to follow suit after Kaepernick pulled his stunt during The Star-Spangled Banner in 2016. They wanted to protest minority oppression along with police brutality. They chose to take a knee during the national anthem despite living in a country that allows them to make millions of dollars playing a sport that they love.

Michael Bennett, defensive end, is one of the NFL players who decided to protest. Throughout various games, he sat on the sideline while his teammates at the Seattle Seahawks stood during the anthem.

Since 2016, Bennett has been bouncing around to the various NFL teams, being unable to find a home. Perhaps this is because he is not as patriotic as he should be. After joining the Philadelphia Eagles, Bennett spent most of the anthems in 2008 hiding in the locker room. He did the same when he was with the New England Patriots.

According to Jerry Jones, the owner of the Cowboys, things are about to change. Now that I go Bennett is playing for the Cowboys, they needed to make sure that an understanding was reached regarding his behavior.

After acquiring the 33-year-old defensive end in a trade with New England earlier this month, part of the deal would be that he had to stand on the sidelines before each game while the anthem played.

During a morning interview, Jerry Jones discussed Bennett as well as the controversy regarding the national anthem. Jones said that he is satisfied that Michael understands “how we do it here with the Cowboys.”

Jason Garrett, head coach for the Dallas Cowboys, also identifies that the team is excited to have Bennett as a player. They anticipate him doing “what all of our players do.”

The Patriots were happy to trade Bennett after an argument with the coaches that resulted in Bennett being suspended. Reportedly, Bennett was frustrated that he wasn’t getting the playing time even though he has high-level skills.

Bennett hasn’t proven himself to be a team player, however. He’s allowing history to repeat itself, only this time it’s him instead of Kaepernick. The Seahawks player couldn’t find a team to play with after his national anthem stunt. Bennett may be a good football player but he hasn’t been showing his team the support they need or the patriotism for a country that allows him to be paid very well for his talents.

Michael Bennett has also proven to be difficult to work with and a number of other ways. In 2018, he was dealt felony charges after allegedly knocking over a 66-year-old female security guard who was paraplegic. In 2008, he also released a book that went into sociopolitical stances, titling the book “Things That Make White People Uncomfortable.” He has also accused the Las Vegas police of racial profiling and made all sorts of demands to the NFL through a memo that was penned by him and a handful of other players.

“Difficult” may be a lax way to describe how Michael Bennett is on an NFL team. However, he has his beliefs and the Cowboys are willing to allow him to have those. However, if Bennett wanted to continue his NFL career, he would need to show some respect to the country. For the Cowboys, the process was simple: You stand for the national anthem along the sidelines with the rest of your team.

Luckily for the Cowboys, Bennett, and the NFL, the defensive end was ready to agree to those terms. The Dallas team now has a great player on their roster, Bennett gets to play the game that he loves, and fans get to watch the team on the field without wondering if there’s going to be some kind of publicity stunt when everyone is standing in unity to listen to the Star-Spangled Banner play – because that’s what we do as Americans in the US at an NFL football game.

  1. Cowboys have it right. Every Patriotic American should PROUDLY STAND for OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM AND HONOR OUR FLAG, and the MEN AND WOMEN IT REPRESENTS that have sacrificed so much, hundreds of thousands giving their lives, so that all of us can enjoy the freedoms we have today. In my humble opinion as a Navy Veteran, I feel very strongly about this situation and suggest every team, professional and amateur follow the Cowboys lead. Hey, let’s get real for just a second: If you can’t respect Our National Anthem, and Our Flag, and you decide you won’t follow the wishes of the OWNER of the team PAYING YOU MILLIONS OF DOLLARS to play a sport, then you shouldn’t be playing and collecting all those big fat checks. Time to find another job…

      1. ABSOLUTELY—————–YOU ARE NOT AMERICAN—YOU ARE RACIST———GET OUT OF OUR COUNTRY AND LET A TRUE AMERICAN MAKE ALL THE MILLIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE DO NOT NEED SOME ONE LIKE YOU—LEAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        1. I agree…These people are making millions off the American people that they are disrespecting…The least they can do is just leave if they don’t like it here. They cannot be held against their will. I imagine Americans would help pay for their ticket out, if they promise not to come back

          1. I agree with you. I feel the same way about the people who said they would leave if Trump was elected.My attitude toward both groups is ” don’t let the door hit your back side as you leave “

    1. I commend the Cowboys and its owner for standing firm on their belief. You see, if the Cowboys bent backwards to these “Kaepernick like” players they will always think they can get away with things. This is what political correctness has done. We dont have to be like them. It is OK to stand for what is right and be different.We stand for what is right…respect the flag and more so respect our country.
      So proud of our Cowboys!!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL COWBOYS

    2. Glad to hear that someone else feels as I do: if you’re not grateful to a country that made you a multi-millionaire, either SHUT UP or Help those that need relief from all the oppression you claim is happening. Sitting on your over-paid ass isn’t going to help anyone. Take 2 minutes to STAND UP for the anthem; you’ll have plenty of time to write books on the poor treatment of people later on…

  2. CK had the last laugh on ALL these “oppression protestors.” Not only did he get a settlement from the NFL larger than his meager talents would have earned him otherwise, but he is now being paid millions annually to be the representative of a company that OPPRESSES WOMEN AND CHILDREN OF COLOR in SE Asia… BWAHAHAHA!!!

  3. Did any one tell him that ”Hand sup, don’t shoot” was a media construct. Browns comrade made up the story and the media gleefully pushed it.

  4. I’ll give the Cowboys a little credit but you don’t need no squatting bitch like that on your team and if you do I’ll send You the same message I have for the last three years with all NFL teams you’ll never be on my TV

  5. And no one says a thing about that liberal piece of shit green bay quarterback from san franshithole kneeling rodgers when he not only kneeled during the National Anthem, but also demanded that the fans do it too!
    Instead you have companies like state farm Putting him in all their commercials.

  6. The constitution is what allows these individuals to protest. For that reason alone they should show respect to the flag and the anthem which represent that constitution. They should use their popularity by going to town hall meetings and express their god given rights in a respect vocal communication with government officials both state and federal. They can also get to the grass roots people by talking in churches schools while standing next to a flag and especially the Betsy Ross flag for it represented the solidarity of thirteen states who accepted what was written in the Declaration of Independence and the constitution. Just remember if you are going protest the original flag then you must protest both the Declaration of Independence and the constitution they too were written during slavery and by slave owners. The words that were written are what really matters and the show of solidarity by the Betsy Ross flag. If I remember correctly there were states represented by that flag that did not condone slavery. So show respect for those and don’t tear them as you would the others who did not only condone it but allowed it and lived it.

  7. I would not have hired the guy in the first place. He’s a kneeler, and he will do something else in the future.
    Jerry needs to get rid of this guy.
    The cowboys aren’t so great anymore with Bennett playing.

  8. An impressive share, I just given this onto a colleague who was doing a little analysis on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I found it for him.. smile.
