“Jerry Threatened to Bench His Players”- Former NFL Star Makes Serious Allegations Against Dallas Cowboys’ Owner

Former NFL star Shannon Sharpe has nuked the Dallas Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones, with some bold claims. Sharpe took to Twitter claiming that Jones had issued threats to his players openly with respect to kneeling during the national anthem.

Jerry Jones has maintained an eerie silence with regard to the talks of racial injustice or police brutality that has boomed across the United States. It is a sensitive issue that has sparked a lot of controversial debates.

Therefore the silence of prominent personalities like Jones, come as a bitter surprise. The Twitter community saw Sharpe demanding an explanation from the Dallas Cowboys’ boss.

The Dallas Cowboys recently posted a video on social media in a bid to exhibit their stance against racial injustice and police excesses. In addition, they rallied behind the protesters in the quest for justice ever since the tragic demise of George Floyd at the hands of a Police officer.

The video featured their star quarterback Dak Prescott, however, Jones was nowhere to be seen. And what’s more, his absence was not only noted but also criticized.

Shannon Sharpe takes aim at Jerry Jones

A fan tagged Shannon Sharpe in a post, following the release of the Cowboys’ video. The former Denver Broncos icon flamed Jones for threatening to cut the players’ time on the field as a consequence of taking a stand against the issues plaguing the country.

However, the former tight end is not the only NFL star to have committed to the crusade for social justice. The NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, recorded a statement for the public. He offered heartfelt condolences and his comfort to the Floyd family for their terrible loss.

“It has been a difficult time for our country. In particular, black people in our country. First, my condolences to the families of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and all the families who have endured police brutality,” said Goodell in the video.

“We, the National Football League, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League, believe Black Lives Matter. I personally protest with you and want to be part of the much-needed change in this country,” said the NFL frontman.

And it seems like the NFL will do good on their promise of supporting the cause. They acknowledge their sins and that is the first and the most quintessential step in the struggle to abolish such social evils.

What do you make of it?
