Despite Kneeling BEFORE The Anthem, The Dallas Cowboys Still Got Booed (VIDEO)
After a Sunday filled with national anthem protests around the league, the talk shifted to whether any Dallas Cowboys player would dare do anything, what with Jerry Jones having been an outspoken critic of kneeling.
The team shocked everybody when they came out onto the field at the University of Phoenix Stadium with their arms linked, then suddenly decided to kneel together as one BEFORE the anthem.
That didn’t seem to matter to the Arizona Cardinals crowd, because they booed them anyway. It was evident that thousands of them were upset by the gesture, no matter when they did it.

The Cowboys clearly tried to straddle the fence on this hot button issue, but it doesn’t look like it worked at all.
