Dak Prescott's anthem backer won't stop the backlash

On the other hand, Prescott has also been praised for his stance, specifically by team owner, Jerry Jones.

"I'm so proud of him, just proud of him the way he leads the team", Jones said.

Last month, Jones spoke with reporters at his annual news conference in Oxford, California to open training camp, and was asked if he would support players staying in the locker room during the national anthem.

When the national anthem plays at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina on September 9, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will be standing on the sidelines with his teammates. The team owner had stated that all Cowboys players would stand for the anthem, "toe on the line" - after the National Football League voted to "allow" protesting players to remain in the locker room (which has since been tabled).

"I never protest during the anthem and I don't think that's the time or venue to do so", Prescott previously said, as reported by Sports Illustrated. "It takes away from the joy and the love that football brings to a lot of people".

Regardless of what you think of Prescott's comments - and one way or another, you feel strongly - he's not backing away from them.

"I made my statements". "I've always believed to stand up for what I believe in and that's what I'm going to continue to do". "It is what it is".
