"Our players wanted to make a statement about unity and we wanted to make a statement about equality." -- Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones

On Monday night, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined his players and coaches locked arms and knelt in unison before the playing of the national anthem. A few seconds later, the entire team stood together during the anthem. 

Jones reiterated after the game that the gesture of team unity designed to serve two goals:  to promote understanding and the push for equal rights and support the flag and what it represents.

Clay Travis says the Cowboys' demonstration was the only NFL protest that seemed to satisfy both parties, and Jerry Jones deserves major credit for striking the perfect balance.
