In Arizona for a Monday Night Football game against the Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took a knee with his team before the National Anthem amid a chorus of boos, and then the entire team and Jones stood with arms locked while the Anthem played:

Will the pressure now be on other owners to join their teams?
I thought the anthem was about respecting America. But it's been about football players deciding what unity is since yesterday. https://t.co/WoOPl5Idm4

Jones taking a knee certainly caught the eyes of some on the Left.

I loved that the Cowboys and Jerry Jones kneeled BEFORE the anthem, so now white supremacists can't push the "disrespect the flag" lie

So now standing during the Anthem will be acceptable again? Stay tuned.
