National Anthem-Protesting NFL Player Gets Into a Street Fight – It Doesn’t Go Well (VIDEO)

Damontre Moore

Meet Damontre Moore. In October, Damontre protested with a “Black Power” fist during the National Anthem as a member of the Dallas Cowboys. A couple of days earlier, Damontre also got into a street fight.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones doesn’t like players who protest the National Anthem or get into street fights.

Damontre is no longer a member of the Dallas Cowboys. Don’t be like Damontre.

While Damontre’s football career with the Dallas Cowboys was a brief one, his street-fighting career lives on forever, thank to TMZ. The video is below.

Footage of the October incident has finally been made public, and TMZ is showing it to the world. It should be noted that Moore was cut by the Cowboys four days after this incident.

At the time, the Cowboys said it was to make room for a injury replacement player, but some speculated that it was because Moore was one of only a few Cowboys to stage some sort of protest during the National Anthem. Now, it appears they had an additional reason to cut him loose.

TMZ Sports reports.

Just 4 days before Damontre Moore was cut by the Dallas Cowboys, the NFL defensive end was in a crazy street brawl in Texas … and it sounds like someone fired a gun.

TMZ Sports obtained footage from the Oct. 20 incident outside of Bottled Blonde beer garden — where 25-year-old Moore was getting into it with a group of guys.

One witness tells us the fight was over a woman — but the details are unclear.

What we do know … Moore tries to fight two guys — and ends up getting jumped pretty bad. One guy puts Moore in a headlock while 2 other guys swing on him.

Eventually, Moore gets out — and tries to jump through the sunroof of a Porsche to try and punch the fleeing attackers. As the car peels out, you can hear what sounds like a gunshot.

Cops were called to the scene at 2:10 AM for possible shots fired — but everyone left, so no arrests were made.

Moore was a member of the Cowboys at the time of the incident — but was cut 4 days later, reportedly for “football reasons” … to make room for another player on the roster.

We reached out to Moore and the Cowboys for comment — so far, no word back from either.
