NFL Won’t Allow Dallas Cowboys to Honor Fallen Cops With Helmet Decal

NFL Won’t Allow Dallas Cowboys to Honor Fallen Cops With Helmet Decal

The No Fun League strikes again.

The assassination of five Dallas cops last July left Dallas, TX, and the whole nation in shock. NFL team Dallas Cowboys wanted to honor the fallen cops with an Arm-In-Arm decal on their helmets, but the league said the team must remove the decals once preseason starts.

Owner Jerry Jones and Jason Witten, the team’s tight end who created the decal, expressed disappointment with the decision, but believe “the stickers already served its purpose.”

The police department, Police chief David Brown, Mayor Mike Rawlings, and members of the killed officers marched arm in arm with the Cowboys team onto the field to their first practice on July 30.

The police department thanked the Cowboys for their support:

The Dallas Police Department sent out a news release reacting to the news Thursday afternoon. In it, the department said the sentiment mattered more than the results.

“We appreciate the support of the Cowboys organization and its players,” the statement said. “Their concern for the families of our fallen officers, the Dallas Police Department, and the City of Dallas is what matters most, and we know that support will continue for the immediate and long term future.”

But members of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation were not pleased:

“The NFL had an opportunity to be leaders and advocates for change in law enforcement,” Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, president of the foundation, said.

“These are our friends and our loved ones … it hurts to not have the NFL fully support us,” he added.

National Felons League strikes again.

How ’bout the entire NFL wear BLUE shoes, gloves, etc. like they wear pink for the silly idea of supporting breast cancer research?

Rages, I seldom agree with you…but this one? 100%! If they are mandated to wear pink, because Komen put pressure on them–clearly, there may not be some people “aware of breast cancer—there may not be people aware that BLUE Lives Matter.

What will the NFL do if enough players just ignore them?

Another government teat sucker heard from. The NFL receives a special exemption from antitrust laws and billions in grants and subsidies for their stadiums.

A federal government that genuinely put taxpayers and voters ahead of donors would cut these parasites off without a dime.

They don’t deserve it.

Is it really a case of it being an issue of fun vs no fun? Or, is it a case that the Cowboys would become targets of hard play or worse from ferals on other teams?

Pro-Choice, huh. So damn selective. #CopsLivesDontMatter #NFL

Leaving everything else aside.
Going strictly by how Q. P. phrased his comment,
l find it disturbing he apparently supports breast cancer?
And I thought it was important for lawyers to use precise wording.
“silly idea of supporting breast cancer research?”
Maybe Q. P. like Trump is running on little sleep?

If I owned a team, the decals would be on the helmets for the entire season and if the commissioner tried to fine me I’d push the other owners to fire the commissioner and take away his pension.

After free agency, football is just rooting for a color anyway. Who cares about the NFL other than Brett Favre who can’t do a commercial without mentioning his 20 years in the NFL. Hey Brett, you stayed too damned long.

I think they’re genuinely afraid of BLM.
Sad
