The NFL Won’t Allow The Cowboys To Wear “Arm In Arm” Decal On Helmets

Cowboys

The NFL continues to not surprise me as they hit yet another low.

The Dallas Cowboys have been denied permission to place the “Arm in Arm” logo in support of the Dallas-area police officers on their helmet during preseason or regular-season games in 2016.

According to Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys have been wearing the decal on their helmets throughout training camp in remembrance of the police officers who were killed in a sniper attack in July.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones released this statement regarding the league’s rejection of the team’s request, per Dallas Morning News:

Everyone has to be uniform with the league and 31 others teams. We respect their decision. There are so many wonderful, wonderful causes, the league has to be careful.

If you allow one, then what do you do about every team that has a great reason to have something on their helmets? There are tons of things out there that need to be recognized. Once you open that Pandora’s box, how do you ever stop?

The Cowboys open up the preseason on Saturday vs. Los Angeles Rams in Los Angeles and will open the regular season September 11th vs the New York Giants at home.

  1. The month of October will be all pink uniform accents for breast cancer awareness. Part of November will be about supporting the various military with camouflage uniform accents. There’s there’s those ugly throwback uniforms. Oh, and those weird “Color Rush” uniforms (are we doing that this season?) Yep, all that crap is great. but letting Cowboys players wear a simple low key sticker on their helmet to support their city’s police is simply too much?

  2. Teams are allowed to wear stickers on their helmets for former players that have passed away. They wear them all of the time. This is another chicken shit decision by the league. Goddell has ruined the NFL.

  3. “…former players…” I’m glad they didn’t let them. I assume that you would also be upset if the NFL denied a team’s request to put a BLM sticker on their helmets as well?
