too late. too many pics of jjones cucking on his knee to the white genocide agenda
Jones is embarrassing, reminds me of GWB. Every time I would see Bush speaking on the teevee I'd be embarrassed for the nation so I know how Cowboy's fans feel.

LameStreamMedia running the narrative.
IMO - The vast majority of people in the US could not care less what this "One Hit Wonder/ Season" has to say ( a False Narrative in itself - COPs kill Blacks. When BLACKS kill Blacks 97% of the time*. ) or what he does.

*A statistic that is closely mirrored in all races.

NFL owners and players are cooperating. Does that mean labor peace will follow?


By Mark Maske / The Washington Post
Thursday
Posted at 11:41 AM Updated at 11:41 AM


When NFL owners last week refused to give in to the intense pressure by President Donald Trump and those fans who wanted to see the league require players to stand during the national anthem before games, it was a show of unity and partnership between two sides who have spent so much time over the years contentiously at odds.

When representatives of the NFL and its players meet next week in New York, they will be building on last week’s conversations between owners and players and, if all goes according to plan, making further progress toward an accord by which the league would provide official support for the work the players want to do in their communities.

But is there even more to it? There is, it seems, a new spirit of cooperation between owners and players, perhaps forged by necessity amid unprecedented circumstances but striking nevertheless. When owners last week refused to give in to the intense pressure by President Donald Trump and those fans who wanted to see the league require players to stand during the national anthem before games, it was a show of unity and partnership between two sides who have spent so much time over the years contentiously at odds.

Will that mean anything when the league and the NFL Players Association get back to the bargaining table in earnest for their next round of labor negotiations, and when they deal with meaningful issues such as potential changes to the sport’s system of player discipline and the possible use of marijuana by players for pain management? That remains to be seen. But it is a new and unforeseen dynamic that will have to be taken into consideration.

“I don’t think there’s any way of knowing if there will be any carry-over effect from all of this,” a high-ranking official with one NFL team said recently. “Those are long-standing issues. It’ll be a little while before they get addressed. But I will say there is a far different tone to the dialogue on this.”

The combativeness between the league and the players’ union has become entrenched with Roger Goodell serving as NFL commissioner and DeMaurice Smith in place as executive director of the NFLPA. Owners locked out the players before the last labor agreement was struck in 2011. That 10-year deal runs through 2020. Smith has predicted there will be another work stoppage this time around.

The league and union repeatedly have clashed in court over cases of player discipline involving Adrian Peterson, Tom Brady and Ezekiel Elliott. The Elliott case remains ongoing in federal court in New York.

But it was not always this way. Paul Tagliabue, Goodell’s predecessor as commissioner, and Gene Upshaw, the late executive director of the union, had a smooth working relationship that resulted in owners and players viewing themselves more as business partners than as natural adversaries. Upshaw viewed his job as giving the owners an opportunity to make as much money as possible, then get a fair share for the players. He agreed to a tough drug policy to keep the sport clean and he consented to a toughened personal conduct policy to keep the reputations of law-abiding players from being sullied.

Things have been far different under Goodell and Smith. But they have been involved in the recent discussions with the different approach.

“We just talked about how the owners could come alongside us and we could collectively, collaboratively work together to actually create some change and some real changes,” Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said last week. “So those conversations will continue. The dialogue will continue. As players we’ll continue to do the work in our communities. We feel like the most American thing to do is to use your platform and influence. And with the stage that we have as NFL players and as a league in general, we feel a real responsibility to our country, to our communities. So we’re working through ways to really have long-lasting, real changes.”

Owners and players met last week in New York and are to meet there again this coming Tuesday.

“There has to be sincerity from players,” Jed York, the chief executive officer of the San Francisco 49ers, said last week. “There has to be sincerity from owners and teams and the league. And if people don’t show up to lobby local congressmen, lobby in D.C., then you’re gonna know that it’s not that important of an issue to you. And if owners make this into just a publicity stunt, you’re gonna see through that. And I don’t get that sense at all from our players or . . . with the owners. This is about, ‘How do we come together as a unified front and move forward and truly make progress happen in this country?’ ”

The harmony between owners and players could be tested next week if out-of-work quarterback Colin Kaepernick attends the meeting, as seems likely. NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said Wednesday that the league expects Kaepernick to be invited by players. Kaepernick began the protest movement last season and has not been signed since becoming a free agent during the offseason. He has filed a grievance accusing NFL teams of colluding against him.

The league has been pressing the union to get things moving on an extension of the collective bargaining agreement. The new CBA is likely to address the system of player discipline and Goodell’s role in it. The players want a neutral arbitrator to resolve appeals of discipline imposed by the league under the personal conduct policy and integrity-of-the-game rules. The league has expressed a willingness to allow initial disciplinary rulings to be made by someone other than Goodell but wants Goodell to remain in charge of deciding appeals. The two sides came close to striking a compromise on a separate player-discipline deal since the last CBA, but the agreement came undone at the last minute.

The league offered this past summer to conduct research in cooperation with the union on the prospective use of marijuana by players as a pain-management tool. The NFLPA has been studying the issue on its own and, according to a person familiar with the sport’s inner workings, has yet to either accept or decline the league’s offer.

These have been troublesome issues. They won’t be resolved easily.

But if they are resolved at some point without the rancor that has come to mark most interactions between the NFL and NFLPA, those involved ultimately might look back on their dialogue regarding protests and league support of players’ activism as the point at which everything changed.

'You can't have the inmates running the prison': Texans owner Bob McNair allegedly likens NFL players to prisoners while arguing for a mandate forcing them to stand for anthem
  • McNair was supporting Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who believes the owners should make all decisions regarding the national anthem
  • A billionaire, McNair is an outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump
  • McNair reportedly apologized to executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent, who was said to be offended by McNair's comment
  • Jones allegedly argued that it was he and the other owners who turned the NFL into a billion-dollar industry, so it should be the owners who make the rules
  • NFL's total viewership dropped about 7.5 percent over the first six weeks of the season compared with the same time frame in 2016
  • Following owners meetings last week, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said it's his belief 'everyone' should stand for the anthem, but stopped short of announcing any new rule that would compel players to do so
  • NFL players have been protesting inequality and police brutality against minorities since the 2016 preseason. During a September speech in Alabama, Trump referred to protesting NFL players as 'sons of b******'

Then go down to your local po-po station and protest there, you dumb sh!ts!
Who is the dumbshit?, whitey controls the po-po and watches pro sports, whitey is who needs the wake up call. You can join the fight against police brutality or give up pro football...I like this protest as a lot of old white men now have to think.

The dumbshits are the ones who can't figure out where to protest.

It's been proven that blacks are more likely to be shot by a black cop than by a white cop. In fact, whites are much more likely to be shot by either race of police, yet we never see protests about that.
...but every time a black guy who is a felon in possession of an illegal gun gets shot, we're all supposed to care? Here's my "care" about that. lol lol lol


What else ya got?

I really didn't give two sh!ts about football prior to all the protests, so I don't really care much about it now either. It's not like they've ever gotten any of my money. edited to add:....unless you count the hotdog and two beers I purchased at the game I got free tix to that one time.
...and yes, I fully realize that the po-po sometimes gets out of hand, but they can get out of hand with anyone. White, black, or any other color of people. Again, why am I only supposed to care when it happens to a black guy? I don't want it to happen to anyone. In my book, all lives matter right up to the point of committing a crime against others. At that point, the perp gets what the perp gets.

My take on it is this:
I hear about all these injustices and SJW whining all week long. On Sunday afternoon I don't want to hear about negro politics and wimpy cracker owners crying to me about injustice. I want to watch a football game without the players needing to shove their politics down my throat.

Now, I 100% agree that as Americans, they have that right. I too am an American and I also have the right to stop supporting the NFL and turn away. I've chosen to due so after 3 decades of being a fan. It was surprisingly easy and I don't miss all the truck commercials.

Anyone who wishes to continue to push the players narrative doesn't realize that what the players are protesting doesn't make a damn bit of difference and they're simply too blind and too busy pushing their politics to recognize the real problem.

When you consider the millions of interactions each and every day between police and people. The actual incidents of cops shooting anybody is tragic yet De minimis in the total interactions of 24 hours.

ESPECIALLY, When you consider how many Non-Leo People kill People in any 24 hour period.
Firearm homicides in 2014 Number of deaths: 11,008/ Deaths per 100,000 population: 3.5.

Entire NATION in 2014 LEO involved deaths 608 out of 11,118 = 0.054% / per 100,000 population 0.000054.

I agree, there are very few bad cops, it is just a bitch to get them fired or imprisoned though. And I'm damn glad I'm not black in America, YouTube makes it clear blacks are at risk here.

My issue with the police and government is the war on drugs and revenue collecting. It has transformed the police from people who protect and serve to people who will ruin your life for something of little significance.

Countless videos of cops violating people’s rights all in the name of the war on drugs. This has created hostility between cops and the people, especially when it crosses racial lines.

We are talking about the number of people shot by cops, but that isn’t the real issue. I don’t know anyone who was ever shot by a cop. But I have seen people’s lives ruined over plants while they were minding their own business and I’ve seen the cops be unprofessional and disrespectful to anyone not rich.

Don't you think Utube has an AGENDA too?

Why is Utube taking monetary rights away from popular yet non-conforming content providers: Paul Joseph Watson, SecureTeam10, Marc Dice, and many, many others ?

They Do Not Bow to the Euro-centric, Fabian Socialist system. The same system US Dem. PROGS suck-up too and bend over for.
