NFL Denies Dallas Cowboys Request To Wear ‘Arm In Arm’ Decal
The National Football League has denied a Dallas Cowboys request to wear an "Arm In Arm" decal on their helmet.
The decal was designed to honor the Dallas Police Officers that lost their life in July when ambushed in downtown Dallas.
According to the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones, the league informed the organization that all teams in the NFL must be uniform and the Cowboys respect their decision. However, I don't.
What's wrong with honoring men and women that made the ultimate sacrifice while protecting their community? Do you think the NFL would allow the Cowboys to wear this decal on their helmet if they, the NFL, made a buck off the decal? I'll let you decide.
According to ProfootballSpot, here's what the Dallas Police had to say about the NFL's recent decision on the decal:
"We appreciate the support of the Cowboys organization and it's players. Their concern for the families of our fallen officers, the Dallas Police Department, and the City of Dallas for what matters most. and we know that support will continue for the immediate and long term future."
Honestly, I hope the Dallas Cowboys honor the Dallas P.D. before every home game. And if they happen to win the Super Bowl this year, I hope they turn the trophy over to the Dallas Police Dept., while the NFL stands next to them on stage.
I understand that there are rules to follow, but when a corporation no longer allows you to honor those that have fallen, it's hard to support that corporation.
