Despite Jemele Hill being suspended for two weeks for calling for people to boycott Dallas Cowboys sponsors because owner Jerry Jones told his players to either stand for the national anthem or go home, another liberal on ESPN had to put in his two cents worth. Michael Wilbon, co-host of a show called “Pardon the Interruption” claimed that Jerry Jones is essentially running a plantation and treating his players like slaves.
The comment immediately raised many eyebrows of individuals who wondered how people who are played millions of dollars per year to play football for the Dallas Cowboys could be compared to slaves. Jerry Jones has a business that pays these players to play football, not use the team as a forum for their personal political beliefs.
