Strong words from Jerry Jones. In fact, some might say they are only one incendiary mention of a female dog's offspring away from reading like the same obnoxious call-to-action that he - himself - knelt in "protest" of...
Look, I'm really, really, really tired of talking about this, and that's why I'll just leave you with this....
Told ya so.
Take away the term "son of a bitch", and what Jerry Jones said is no different than what Donald Trump said. It was a direct threat against the livelihood of his players that directly impinged upon their First Amendment rights. If you want to ignore that because two weeks ago he knelt for two seconds to appease both his business and political interests then be my guest. That maniacal smirk into the camera said it all before he even had to, but now we have words to back up the blatant hypocrisy.
Oh, and let's get one thing straight. The "strength" of this obvious intimidation tactic is predicated solely on the skill level of any player ballsy enough to test it. Ezekiel Elliott would still be listed as the starter if he sucker punched Lady Liberty in the nose and got on all fours before using the American flag to wipe up the blood, so yeah - it absolutely matters who that hypothetical knee belongs to.
But hey, if you're someone that thinks Jerry Jones would risk taking a loss by walking his team off an NFL field in response to a peaceful protest then these words are wasted on you because you're literally too dumb to reason with.
