Cowboys players won't test Jerry Jones' anthem policy, report says

Here's the Ultimatum Jerry Jones Just Gave Cowboys Players Over Anthem Common Thinks Dalls Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Has Slave Owner Mentality

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones added fuel to the national anthem controversy when he said he would bench any player who didn't stand during the playing of the national anthem.

Jones' comments occurred in response to Vice President Mike Pence abruptly leaving the Sunday game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco after more than 20 49ers knelt during the national anthem.

Local 100 announced its complaint on Facebook, writing that the union aims "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".

Jones became the first NFL owner to publicly state an organizational policy that includes discipline if players protest during the national anthem.

"We also care deeply about our players and respect their opinions and concerns about critical social issues".

Jones insisted on Sunday that players would stand for the anthem, and doubled down in an interview on Monday, pointing to a league manual that says players "should" stand.

Place-kicker Dan Bailey, who also is a captain, serves as the Cowboys' representative to the NFL Players Association.

When asked if he would really sit a player like Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Dez Bryant, Jones initially deferred. He said there have been numerous conference calls with the players' association regarding the situation. I know in the modern age people think workers shouldn't have rights, but they still do.

"We as a team are very much on the page together", Jones said.

Bailey said the team's focus did not appear to be affected Wednesday. "So in that sense, yeah, I think we're definitely a unified group". Jones donated a large sum to Trump's presidential campaign previous year and has been in contact with him since the protests spread in Week 3. "I like that song", said Scandrick.

Meanwhile, Lions safety Glover Quin, who is Detroit's union representative, said that when the NFLPA responds to Jones' remarks, it won't be ambiguous.
