DALLAS — Symbols of solidarity are very common in today’s NFL, from players wearing pink for breast cancer awareness to decals made to honor our nation’s veterans. But the NFL has decided to crack down on a helmet sticker the Dallas Cowboys had planned to wear this season, KDAF reports.
It’s a sticker that simply reads “Arm In Arm”. It’s meant to represent the moment Chief David Brown and Mayor Mike Rawlings walked arm-in-arm with players to open training camp this year.

Last Wednesday, the team received word from the NFL that they won’t be allowed to wear the decal during the preseason or regular season.
The Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation voiced their displeasure stating, “These are our friends and our loved ones…it hurts to not have the NFL fully support us.”
