It's Now Trump, Pence and Cowboys' Jerry Jones vs. the NFL

  • Dallas Cowboys v Arizona Cardinals

ESPN's "Pardon the Interruption" host Michael Wilbon compared Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to a slaveowner after Jones all but banned players from protesting during the national anthem.

Jones sought to ensure players that he saw the bigger picture on how the situation is impacting the business side of the NFL.

But more than that, Jones told his players in their Wednesday meeting that his stance on the anthem is because he wants to play the bad guy and deflect attention from the rest of the team, reports ESPN.com's Todd Archer.

In the meantime, if Scandrick's comment is any indication, it doesn't sound like the Cowboys convinced Jones to let them kneel during the anthem. Some requirements are that it must be played before every National Football League game, all players must be on the sidelines during the anthem and they should all face the flag with helmets in their left hand.

Yahoo Sports noted: "With some oddly timed comments after Sunday's loss against Green Bay, Jones basically said players who don't stand for the anthem won't play".

"Local 100 filed charges with Region 16 of the NLRB against the Dallas Cowboys to stop owner, Jerry Jones, from threatening players with benching or termination for exercising their right to concerted activity under the National Labor Relations Act", the post read. I'm very supportive of the team, but under no circumstances will the Dallas Cowboys - I don't care what happens - under no circumstances will we as an organization, coaches, players, not support and stand and recognize and honor the flag. When the anthem was performed, they stood arm-in-arm with the players.

"There's nothing that I've seen that shows the union that did file the [unfair labor practice] has any connection with the NFL Players Association, the NFL, or any particular player".

He said players have voiced their opinions to him.

"I think my first responsibility is to listen and provide that forum for them, and then my next job is to relay that to the people that I talk to in that representation", Bailey said. "He wanted to make sure they knew that". "We come in every day to work and our focus is on practice and trying to win ballgames".

Jones, who donated $1 million to Trump's inauguration fund, drew praise from the embattled president late on Monday. This union was offended by those comments. "So I think the likelihood on the basis of that charge alone, that this gets much steam, is probably unlikely". "The message, it will be out".
