Dak Prescott Criticized For His Stance On The National Anthem Protest

Dak Prescott decided to address the national anthem protest during training camp on Friday. The Cowboys starting quarterback made it clear that his choice is to stand.

During camp, Prescott was asked about the Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones comments that if Cowboys players protest during the national anthem, they would have a hard time playing for the team.  Prescott responded by saying that the decision won’t affect him.

“I never protest,” Prescott stated. “I never protest during the anthem, and I don’t think that’s the time or the venue to do so. The game of football has always brought me such peace, and I think it does the same for a lot of people—a lot of people playing the game, a lot of people watching the game, a lot of people who have any impact of the game—so when you bring such controversy to the stadium, to the field, to the game it takes away. It takes away from that, it takes away from the joy and the love that football brings a lot of people.”

Prescott went on to explain he respects what the players believe in, but prefers a different method.

“I respect what all those guys believe in,” he said. “If they believe it’s going to make a change and it’s going to make a difference then power to them. But for me, I believe in doing something, action. It’s not about taking a knee. It’s not necessarily about standing. We can find a different place to make our country better. And obviously I’m not naive and I’m very aware of the injustice that we have going on, but I’m about the actions that we can do to fix it rather than the silent protest.”

To reactions to Prescott’s comments are as divisive as kneeling.

Prescott voiced his views his love of the game and personal views on the protest. Let us know what you think
