Dallas Cowboys Coaches Cussed & Argued ... Over Anthem Protest

5/16/2018 2:32 PM PDT

Dallas Cowboys coaches had a heated meeting about the team's decision to take a knee as a team last season with one coach saying, "Who gives a f**k what the President says."

It's all part of a docuseries featuring the Cowboys called "All or Nothing," which featured a look inside a real team conversation surrounding the anthem protest. 

Before the Sept. 25 game against the Cardinals -- days after President Trump made inflammatory comments about players kneeling for the anthem -- Jerry Jones told the team he wanted everyone to take a knee in unity before the song. But he made it clear, when the music plays, "I want you to stand."

"I want us to, in front of God and everybody, walk out there together, all of us, and kneel down in the name of unity."

Jones goes on to say ... "Then they’re gonna play the National Anthem. And I do want you to stand with me. I do want you to stand."

After the game, head coach Jason Garrett talked to his coaching staff about the team's show of unity ... and it got intense.

O-line coach Frank Pollack says ... "What happened to blocking out the f*cking noise? Who gives a f*ck what the President says?"

"Let’s get our focus on what we’re trying to do. All this is doing is distracting us from what we’re trying to f*cking accomplish."

Aside from being a look inside how a team handled the controversy ... it's possible the footage could be used in Colin Kaepernick's collusion case against the NFL ... to illustrate the Cowboys' feelings towards the anthem protests.

NFL's Cole Beasley I'm Not An Athlete/Rapper I'm A Rapper/Athlete

EXCLUSIVE

Cowboys WR Cole Beasley says if you think he's just another athlete-turned-rapper you're dead wrong ... because he's just the opposite, telling TMZ Sports he's actually a rapper-turned-athlete.

Cole released a single "80 Stings" back in January, and the critical consensus from most people was that Beasley spit hot fire like Dylan.

We talked to Cole and his producer "Phazz" Clark ... and CB says the toughest thing about being an athlete that raps is that he isn't that at all.

"For this album to be a success, for me it's really just opening the door for people looking past the athlete trying to rap, to he's just a rapper who happens to play football."

FYI -- Cole's debut album, "The Autobiography," drops Saturday ... and Cole says his album release party is gonna have all the Cowboys there, bringing together one thing athletes and rappers do have in common:

Groupies. (Cole is married ladies).

Dallas Cowboys Threats Made over NFL Draft SWAT Team Raids Home

EXCLUSIVE

A SWAT team in Florida raided the home of a former college football player -- after cops say he threatened several Dallas Cowboys members after not getting selected in the NFL Draft. 

The Melbourne Police Dept. has confirmed the SWAT team was dispatched to the home of 26-year-old Keyon Reed -- who played linebacker for the University of Tennessee Chattanooga until 2012. 

Cops were told Reed "had called members of the Dallas Cowboys and was telling them they needed to sign him. They stated he was making threats to harm people if the Cowboys did not sign him."

When cops arrived to Reed's home, Reed allegedly fessed up to making the threats -- including telling Cowboys employees he was going to "f*** their wife."

Reed explained he was "frustrated they wouldn't 'show him the real money' and sign him to a contract."

Cops ultimately determined Reed was not an imminent threat and he was not arrested. 

Reed had issues back in his playing days -- the 6'1", 228 pounder was arrested for assaulting a police officer before the 2013 season.

EXCLUSIVE

A former Dallas Cowboys player is going to bat for Kanye West -- telling TMZ Sports he truly believes Kanye is trying to make America great ... despite his "bad choice" of words. 

We spoke with Gerald Sensabaugh -- who's now running for mayor of Sullivan County, Tennessee -- and he tells us, "I understand where Kanye was coming from" in his "TMZ Live" interview.

"His whole thing is that we're choosing to be enslaved by choosing to listen to the media outlets, we're letting people influence our thoughts, influence the way we do things, and I think that's what he meant."

"Kanye's a different guy," the former safety said ... "He's outspoken. He said Trump's his boy so expect him to have some Trump-ish ways but I don't think he means any harm."

Sensabaugh added, "We should be able to express how we feel about issues without everybody getting so easily offended."

"Ezekiel is the best to ever play the game, remember I said that," -- Zeke's dad. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Stacy Elliott -- who also runs Fifth Down Enterprises -- who tells us his son has been laser focused this off-season and is ready to wreak havoc all over the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys in 2018. 

"He's the G.O.A.T. He's the best to ever play the game," Stacy said.

"This is deeper than Lavar Ball ... this is the actual truth. The truth is in the pudding, or the pudding's in the truth, whatever they say."

Elliott says he's impressed with the new crop of running backs, including Saquon Barkley ... but no one can hold a candle to his son. 

"Saquon's a great running back, great young man. But he's not Ezekiel Elliot in my opinion. Ezekiel is the best to ever play the game."

They've had some epic matchups over the years ... but Josh Norman is willing to bury the hatchet and play nice with Dez Bryant if he signs with the Redskins! 

We actually broke the news to the Redskins star cornerback about the Dallas Cowboys parting ways with Bryant -- and he seemed a little shocked by the move. 

But then ... he quickly started the recruiting process!

"He wouldn't be a bad addition -- hell, come on over!" 

"If he can help us win, that's all that matters at the end of the day."

Of course, Norman and Bryant have gone head-to-head a bunch of times over the years -- and formed a true rivalry that got really heated at times. 

But Norman is willing to move on in the name of winning.

EXCLUSIVE

Martellus Bennett has bad news for Kanye West ... because in the battle to be the "Black Walt Disney" there can only be one, and according to Bennett HE is that one.

You might remember it was a couple of years ago that Kanye West proclaimed that it was HE who was the Black Walt Disney -- really just the next Walt Disney -- during an interview with Sway.

Bennett CRUSHED West's dreams when we got him out in NYC, telling our guy his new career as a children's book author is going to put him over the top in the race to build a chocolate Magic Kingdom.

Now we don't think he was taking a direct shot at West -- he didn't mention his name except to say that Kanye was "cool" -- question is, how will 'Ye take it?

Expect a rant, Bennett.

Michael Irvin says it's a damn shame some Eagles are boycotting Trump's White House ... and hopes the time-honored tradition can continue once POTUS is outta office.

"I hate that we're at that place," Irvin told TMZ Sports. "Hopefully we can get back to that, if not this President's term, maybe the next."

Remember, The Playmaker won 3 rings with the Cowboys ... so it wasn't a surprise when he told us he thinks the ceremony's a BIG deal. 

That said, Mike says he realizes times have changed with #45 in the Oval Office ... so when it comes to Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long and the other Eagles skippin' out on the visit, he ain't gonna hold it against them.

"That's what politics is. Everybody gets to express their opinions, and those guys are expressing their opinions."
