There's just one thing left to do: embroidery and putting the emblem on every single piece of Cowboys related merchandise.

The League probably was looking to avoid controversy and the appearance of taking a stand for or against any social or political bovine byproduct blizzards.

It could also be due to potential riots/attacks. Sports crowds can get drunk and rowdy so it wouldn't surprise me if this isn't just damage prevention in anticipation of injuries or lawsuits.

Nothing out of the ordinary. Teams can only display logos representing the league and its partners. Political/social issues have nothing to do with it.

Yeah. That's probably part of it.
Then again, while people can have opinions, organizations should not, so it's probably for the best that they quashed it.

They can have opinions, just not on their uniforms.

Oh well better not wear those stickers

Just like everyone else can wear their religious attire without batting an eye

People might get the wrong idea

Oh shit my eyes rolled to the back of my head

I agree with the decision. Their deaths have been politicized and you can't have that in sports.

William Clay Ford (Detroit Lions owner), Myra Kraft (wife of New England Patriots owner Robert Craft), Gene Upshaw (former player and head of the NFL Players Association), to name a few. All were associated with the NFL.

The league is very, very rigid about their uniform policy. Here are a just a few examples. Enjoy.

I don't think the Dallas PD has an endorsement deal with the league, so they're out of luck. Of course, the NFL could make an exception in exchange for a few hundred grand.
