Listen: Jerry Jones, Seahawks, Chargers discussed on Bill Handel
"New policy back in may. And basically you either stand or don't come out on the field for the anthem players union pushed back they said. All right. Let's not do anything this season. We have to have more talks. But the talks with the players union aren't even scheduled to start. I think until next year. Right. So obviously it may be the twenty nine thousand nine season. And I know you're gonna talk more about this with Ryan burrow at eight. But the the thing that I question too is I wonder if the fact that you had a couple of players who kneeled yesterday on the dolphins you had one of the chargers players raised their fist you had. I think maybe one other person maybe. But there were so few players who did anything I wonder if that to play part in this decision like, well, okay. Maybe it's not much to do about nothing anymore. Maybe. But you know, you also have the second lane. The league the league definitely wants to prevent this season from being overly focused on this controversy, then you have each individual team which could try to set their own rules. In fact, doll for you. Remember the dolphins their their code of conduct leaked out. Yeah. And they had some very harsh rules about standing during the anthem with suspensions. They've now backed off of it because the league has backed off of it because I don't think any one team wants to be the only team punishing players. Although I think Jerry Jones would jump in. Yeah. Cowboys if anybody was going to do it. I think he would be the guy to lead the charge. He's also savvy enough to to handle this semi off the record. I mean, he's spoken publicly. Right. But in terms of say putting things in writing or whatever I feel like he's the kind of guy where he just comes to locker room and has a little talk. You realize? Is that if you want to continue to be a Dallas cowboy you're going to stand for that? And he's like the godfather of the cowboy. Yeah. So let's take a quick tally of who stood. Didn't stand kneeled fists in the air. Yeah. So we had two guys we had two players from Kenny stills and Albert Watson from the dolphins. And then our chargers player was Russell Okon who raised his fist Broncos receiver. Thomas and linebacker, Brandon Marshall's Seahawks linemen, Dwayne Brown and Quinton Jefferson retreated to their tunnels. They just didn't come out right or I guess they probably been on the field practicing. And then just went back in the waited till the anthem was over. And then they came last season. Wasn't it the Seahawks that had the most players? I think so you right now this so so far it's it seems to be the dolphins. Maybe. Yeah. Who've made that we're talking to or two or three max per team. And most teams didn't have anybody. Anything? Yeah. All right.
