FS1’s Whitlock: The NFL Isn’t the Platform for Players to Protest

In a Monday appearance on Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” Fox Sports 1 personality Jason Whitlock praised Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for his statement that anybody who kneels for the national anthem “won’t play.”

“It is long past time for NFL ownership to try to take control of the situation,” Whitlock told host Neil Cavuto.

Whitlock argued that the NFL is not the players’ platform to make political statements.

“They’re in uniform wearing the Dallas Cowboys or the New York Giants uniform. I can’t do it on my job, you can’t do it on yours. If you work at McDonald’s, you can’t do it while wearing their uniform. It’s long past due for NFL ownership to put their foot down and say, ‘Look, guys, we support what you say you’re in support of, you just can’t do it in uniform during our football game. We have business to conduct here. There’s a time and a place for everything.’ I think what Jerry said here is very appropriate,” Whitlock explained.
