National Football League won't let Cowboys wear decal honoring Dallas police

Earlier this month, the Dallas Cowboys revealed a special decal supporting the Dallas police force with the intention to wear it on their helmets during the 2016 National Football League season.

The Dallas Cowboys debuted an "Arm in Arm" helmet decal to open training camp as a tribute to the murdered Dallas police officers who were violently killed last month. We respect their decision.

Many members of the Cowboys' organization have been extremely vocal in support of the Dallas Police Department after the July 7 attack in downtown Dallas that resulted in the police deaths. For the Cowboys, several positions will be analyzed with great scrutiny as we look to build a deeper and more talented roster on both sides of the ball.

The Cowboys had unveiled the decal on the first day of training with Dallas police and city officials in attendance.

The team planned to wear the decals in its preseason games, but the league notified the Cowboys of its decision Wednesday. Jones, who knows the ins and outs of league thinking better than pretty much anyone else besides those in the league office, gave an interesting perspective recently on the matter. "The NFL had an opportunity to be leaders and advocates for change in law enforcement", Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, president of the foundation, said.

The Star-Telegram reported that tight Jason Witten came up with the idea for the stickers.

"There are tons of things out there that need to be recognized".

It's true that the league has some very strict rules regarding uniforms and they tightly guard their public appearance... "If a uniform policy is keeping them from this, then why don't they have every team wear the decals?" "Once you open that Pandora's box, how do you ever stop?" In October they routinely plaster pink over uniforms and equipment in support of breast cancer awareness to the point where I get sick of seeing it.
