  • Why Does NFL Order Cowboys not to Honor Slain Policemen but Allows Kaepernick to Disrespect America?

    08/29/2016 2:40:00 PM PDT · by detective · 66 replies
    The NFL allows Kaepernick to disrespect America and say we should not “show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.” The NFL said the media support Kaepernick and his position. The same NFL denied the Cowboys the right to honor fallen policemen. The idea was conceived by veteran tight end Jason Witten. The "Arm in Arm" design honored the fallen officers. Dspite that strong support from one of the league's most powerful franchises, the NFL has struck down the request for the team to wear the decal during the regular season or...

    The Business Insider ^ | 11/3 | Scott Davis
    According to several reports, including ESPN, the Dallas Cowboys have released 23-year-old running back Joseph Randle. This is a fairly shocking development after Randle was demoted from starting running back last week, left the team's facilities unannounced, and was dealing with "personal matters." This also comes after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he was concerned about Randle's mental well-being. Randle was expected to take over as the Cowboys starting running back this season in the wake of DeMarco Murray. Through five games, the results were unimpressive, and following a strained oblique and breakout performance from Darren McFadden, the Cowboys demoted...

    The Dallas Cowboys' desperation has become Greg Hardy's greatest advocate. His enabler, really. You can see this unfolding with owner Jerry Jones feeling his Super Bowl season slipping away – a prime opportunity falling to 2-4 and fading fast. Then he looks away, but only in one direction: to stare at the locker room door, waiting for quarterback Tony Romo to swoop in with a cape on. Meanwhile, on the other end of the room, Greg Hardy is doing whatever he wants. Frankly, he's making Jones look bad, and I'm not sure the Cowboys' owner even cares anymore.

The incident started when Patmon jarred Bryant's helmet loose during a play and Bryant responded by yanking off Patmon's helmet. Patmon, 24, threw a punch and backed away, and Bryant came back with...

Ultimately, it's tough to rank a team coming off an 8-8 season lower than this, but there are a lot of warning signs that this is going to be a very ugly year in Dallas. The defense was bad last season, and arguably the three best players are gone. Defensive end DeMarcus Ware was cut. Defensive tackle Jason Hatcher signed with Washington. Linebacker Sean Lee is already out for the year with a torn ACL suffered in an offseason practice. You...

In reality there were many, some of whose stories were borrowed for films starring white actors. The most common image of the cowboy is a gun-toting, boot-wearing, white man - like John Wayne, or Clint Eastwood. But the Hollywood portrayal of the Wild West is a whitewashed version of the reality. It is thought that about a quarter of all cowboys were black.'

    It was a busy Friday morning for Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten. First, he accepted the Athletes in Action 2013 Bart Starr Award, given to an NFL player for outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community. After that, he was whisked to the Morial Convention Center for a press conference announcing the finalists for the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year. “To be honest, this is a little uncomfortable because you never want to be recognized,’’ said Witten, who just completed his 10th season in the NFL and is the top...

    The Dallas Cowboys needed quarterback Tony Romo to come up big against the Washington Redskins on Sunday night.

    It's easy to think that by 2007, most professional sports teams had figured out this whole Internet thing. Yeah, funny thing about that, since one of the great examples of dot-com incompetence occurred back then, as Jerry Jones and his Dallas Cowboys organization could've snagged Cowboys.com and been operating under that domain for all these years. Now? Not so much.
