"The NFL the lightning rod subject which has been around the league since the start of camps. Today after Jerry Jones is, made it clear that his team must stand for the national anthem eagles defensive back Malcolm Jenkins called the Cowboys owner of bully, saying quote lucky for me I don't play for the Cowboys. Nor would I want to sow paolantonio on Golic and wingo on the, subject of a pair of eagles regarding this difficult topic if you, remember weeks three when the president United States Reinserted himself. Into the controversy and. It basically turned the NFL off Vich access on this issue it was the eagles really lead the way because of. Malcolm Jenkins and because of, Doug Peterson and team owner Jeffrey Lurie I, remember very distinctly texting? Doug Peterson after Donald Trump's comments? And saying what are you gonna do, you gonna have a meeting he texted me back. And he said I'm not doing anything Because the players had. Already taken care of it to Malcolm Jenkins Chris, loans leadership they got together and they decided the players were gonna stand. Arm, in, arm with first responders numbers of the Philadelphia. Police department and fire department local members of the military holding up the flag and Michael Jenkins would hold up his fists. And Jeffrey Lewis stood right, next door there's a picture of that in, my book actually and? There's a description of what happened? In that meeting in my book I, it's it's really fascinating That this team pulled all the weather's the right levers last year both behind the scenes during every kind of controversy in loss of some of the most significant players that you can lose a quarterback left tackle a, middle, linebacker special teams guru like Darren sproles so I expect them to again be leaders on this issue and do the right thing Stephen Jones reiterated, Friday that players must stand for the anthem if, they want to be a Dallas cowboy he told the ticket ninety six seven FM. That players would face punishment if they chose to. Stay in the locker room for the anthem Cowboys back Dak Prescott on. Protesting, during, the anthem."
