Sports Speak Up! On Jerry Jones, baseball and the anthem controversy

JACK BOWERS nailed it about Jerry and the “Cowpies”. The whole team should kneel making him “very upset” while a lot of us LOL.


I GUESS IF YOU assault women, drive drunk, and/or do drugs, you’ll still have a place on Jerry’s team. But God forbid you try and exercise your First Amendment rights, you’ll be sitting on his bench. What a hypocrite!

THE COWBOYS, more specifically Jerry Jones, are again searching for excuses why they can’t win important games. If their owner benches kneeling players and ultimately lose games then they have a new excuse. Remember back then when the Cowboys said they didn’t play well when wearing blue jerseys. How absurd! …

THIS SEASON I have seen the Judge (Aaron) hit a frozen rope 550-plus feet into the upper deck concession stand, Austin Jackson doing a cartwheel over the left-center field wall robbing Hanley Ramirez of a homer, Verlander going deep South into the eye of a hurricane and Tanaka with 15 Ks to end (the) regular season, getting the Yankees into the playoffs. I have not seen one player take a knee during our National Anthem. God Bless Baseball!
