Common Thinks Dalls Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Has Slave Owner Mentality

  • Dallas Cowboys Players to Meet with Jerry Jones Over His Claims that Any Player Who Protests Will be Benched

Jerry Jones is free to bench his players if, in his mind, they "disrespect the flag" during the national anthem, according to legal experts.

In the meeting, Jones sought to ensure players also saw the bigger picture regarding the business side of the situation, including concerns over TV ratings and sponsors, the source said.

Jones' announcement came two weeks after the Cowboys locked arms and kneeled before the national anthem was played before their game against the Arizona Cardinals, protesting police violence against African Americans.

Players had been told to bring their concerns about Jones' comments to the meeting.

"The Local 100 chapter of the United Labor Unions filed a complaint against Jones on Tuesday with the National Labor Relations Board, according to a post on their Facebook page".

Jones said on Sunday: "There is no room here if it comes between looking non-supportive of our players and of each other or creating the impression that you're disrespecting the flag, we will be non-supportive of each other".

If these reported tweets are true, it's bad enough that Jones is mandating that Cowboys' players stand during the anthem, ignoring their First Amendment right to protest, but him ordering how they hold hands and their helmets and where they should be looking during the song is downright degrading. "Now that the president has gotten involved in it and you've seen owners responding by at least stating they will take disciplinary action, it makes it closer to being related to terms and conditions of their employment".

"The game ops manual has an ambiguity being used for those who don't want to enforce it- the word "should" stand for anthem is their ambiguity- but how can it be ambiguous when it cites the potential penalties of fines, suspension or loss of draft picks for failing to adhere?"

Bailey said the team's focus did not appear to be affected Wednesday.

Jones is a supporter of President Donald Trump, who has been a vocal critic of the national anthem protests. This union was offended by those comments.
