NFL bans the Dallas Cowboys from showing support to officers who were killed

Luther Vandross was outed as gay after his death.

During the Dallas Cowboys training camp, the players wore an ‘Arm in Arm’ decal that honored the five Dallas Police Department officers who were targeted and killed. The team asked the National Football League if they would allow the Cowboys to wear the same decal during the regular season.

The NFL sent a quick response…”No.”

The NFL adheres to strict uniform guidelines for its players. All 31 teams must be in uniform, no exceptions.

“Everyone has to be uniform with the league and the other 31 teams,” said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. “We respect their decision.”

The only reason a team is allowed to alter their uniform is if it is to honor a member or family member of the team or organization
