NFL Stops Cowboys from Supporting Cops While Kaepernick Gets a Pass on Protesting Flag

Victoria Taft | Independent Journal

The Cowboys asked the NFL to be able to put this sticker on the team helmet to show solidarity with the men who had fallen in their own city:

The NFL said no just three weeks ago.

The conflicting “decisions” have struck a nerve:

The Daily Mail reports that the NFL says uniforms are uniforms:

“Everyone has to be uniform with the league and the other 31 teams.

There are tons of things out there that need to be recognized. Once you open that Pandora’s box, how do you ever stop?”

But as Independent Journal Reviewreported, “Pandora’s box” has already been opened with red, white, and blue gloves; pink bandanas and socks; and all kinds of things that the NFL has chosen to allow.

The move rankled the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation President, Demetrick Pennie, who told TMZ that they were “extremely upset” over the NFL’s decision:

“The NFL had an opportunity to be leaders and advocates for change in law enforcement These are our friends and our loved ones…it hurts to not have the NFL fully support us.”

The sniper attack was a national tragedy. All NFL teams could have worn the sticker and then they would have been ‘uniform.’

But instead, the personal crusade of Kaepernick in which he “feels” the United States as a whole is unfair, throwing his lot in with Black Lives Matter, is an allowable show of support by the NFL’s lights.
