President Trump has once again chimed in on the NFL’s ongoing national anthem problems.
Thanks to the fecklessness of vastly overpaid Commissioner Roger Goodell, the league is mired in crisis mode after a sudden call to halt its own rule against kneeling during the anthem.
This week, with Goodell cowering from the SJW hate mobs, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took the bull by the horns and made it clear that the protests which have morphed int anti-Trump tirades would not be tolerated on his team.

It’s called LEADERSHIP.
While Jones also said that it’s time for President Trump to let the league handle the acrimonious issue itself, the POTUS just couldn’t resist giving a shout out to Jones.
Way to go Jerry. This is what the league should do! https://t.co/yEP1jK57xi

President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday that he supports Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and his stated policy that Cowboys players must stand on the field during the pregame rendition of the national anthem.
“Way to go Jerry,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “This is what the league should do!”
Trump’s tweet came less than 48 hours after Jones said in a press conference that, regardless of the league’s national-anthem policy, the Cowboys will require their players to “stand during the anthem, toe on the line.”
On Thursday, Jones’ son, executive vice president and director of player personnel Stephen Jones, went one step further, insinuating in a radio interview that the team’s players will stand “if they want to be a Dallas Cowboy” — insinuating that those who don’t stand will be cut.
Trump is only expressing the feelings held by millions of decent Americans who have had the game that they loved stolen away from them by a pack of whiny, multimillionaire ingrates and their obsession with racial grievance politics.
It used to be that football was a unifier but Goodell changed all of that when he coddled Kaepernick and then lost control to the mutineers.
