NFL denies Cowboys’ request to wear decal honoring fallen Dallas officers

The NFL denied the Dallas Cowboys’ request to wear a decal on their helmets during the season that would have paid tribute to the five police officers killed last month in an ambush.

The team had been wearing a decal with the words “Arm in Arm” since the first day of training camp this summer. Dallas police Chief David Brown and Mayor Mike Rawlings paid the team a visit on that day, according to Fox 4 News.

The NFL’s strict rules on uniforms forced the league to deny the Cowboys’ request to wear the decal for the upcoming season.

Dallas police said it appreciated the Cowboys’ support.

“Their concern for the families of our fallen officers, the Dallas Police Department, and the City of Dallas is what matters most, and we know that support will continue for the immediate and long term future,” the department said in a statement.

    Do it anyway and stand on their throats if they try to stop you!

    You may have to battle the “Black Lies Matter’ players first!

    The NFL would be singing a different song if the police refused to show up for work at the stadiums. I would not blame them if they did refuse.

  • Rodney Steward

    Sad that the pro business of football has become so PC and kissing the a$$ of the communist party (DEMS), and the White house thug! I’m through with the pro business of football! F’K BLM and the NFL!!

    The QB and each of the players could carry a small sweat towel in their belts/waistband with the same sentiments and it would not be part of the uniform.

  • Sal Belardo

    Put the decal on and screw the NFL!
