Protesters Confront Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones At Fall Owners Meeting In New York City

A couple of protesters confronted Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Tuesday at the NFL fall owners meeting in New York.

The protesters confronted Jones as he was walking into the Conrad Hotel where the meetings were taking place.

They held up signs and shouted at Jones, complaining about white supremacists and President Donald Trump.


Jones, as seen in the video stopped and listened to the protesters, but did not say anything. After a few moments, hotel security led the protesters away and Jones continued into the hotel.

A main part of this year’s meeting involves players sitting down with team owners to discuss the kneeling of players during the playing of the National Anthem.

Players and owners both are hoping to find a common ground on social and racial injustice issues this week, which is the reason why a handful of players are joining in.

Among the players that are taking part in the meeting on Tuesday include: Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, defensive lineman Chris Long, Redskins cornerback Josh Norman and Jets inside linebacker Demario Davis and left tackle Kelvin Beachum.

Earlier this season, Trump vulgarly ripped NFL players who choose to peacefully protest during the playing of the anthem. Trump said NFL owners should cut those players.

On Tuesday, Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin pinned a joint letter with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to the Senate Judiciary Committee about criminal justice reform.
