Prior to a Monday Night Football matchup with the Arizona Cardinals, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined his players and entire staff on the field for a display of unity.
After a weekend full of protests, Jones and the Cowboys linked arms and took a knee in the middle of the field.
The display came prior to Jordin Sparks’ rendition of the national anthem, which included a very powerful statement of its own.
After the knee was taken, the Cowboys returned to the sideline arm-in-arm for the duration of the anthem. The Arizona Cardinals also linked arms as the colors were on display.

It is hard to find any fault with that display. The teams came together, showed their unity and then remained standing for the playing of the national anthem.
No one should complain about this one.
