Richard Sherman calls out Cowboys owner Jerry Jones ‘plantation mentality’ over NFL protest


August 1, 2018 - San Francisco 49er Richard Sherman is pulling no punches and said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has a “plantation mentality” for backing a policy that would penalize players for kneeling on the field during the national anthem to protest of police brutality. 

“The owner of the Dallas Cowboys, with the old plantation mentality,” Sherman, 29, told, USA Today. “What did you expect?” Jones spoke out publicly saying that he expects his players to all stand for the national anthem. “Our policy is you stand during the anthem, toe on the line,” Jones told reporters. The NFL however, is still working out the kinks of the policy with the players league after they voted to levy a financial penalty against players and staff who kneel on the field but still allow players who want to protest to remain in the locker room without retribution.
