Jerry Jones: Cowboys will bench any player who 'disrespects' flag

Can Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Bench a 'Disrespectful' Player?

Jerry Jones says he will bench players who disrespect the flag

Jones stated over the weekend that any Cowboys players who don't stand for the national anthem wouldn't play on the team.

Trump in a tweet wrote, "A big salute to Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, who will BENCH players who disrespect our Flag."Stand for Anthem or sit for game!..."

Smith says he looks forward to the day when National Football League management can embrace what the flag truly stands for.

"If it comes between the impression or the perception that we're not standing together, supporting each other, or the perception that we're disrespecting the flag, the perception that we're not together will be secondary to not respecting the flag", Jones said.

The players' union responded on Monday, with executive director DeMaurice Smith saying Jones' comments contradicted those of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Nearly immediately the National Football League Players Association countered with a statement insisting that the anthem protests are "respectful" and "conscientious" and that the union would not stand for player's rights being violated in the way Jones was suggesting. Both have family members in the military, and they are OK with it.

Garrett sidestepped a question from a reporter who asked him whether he would have any issues if players express themselves after the anthem. "We made our expression".

"Our players wanted to make a statement about unity and we wanted to make a statement about equality", Jones said at a news conference after that game.

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has changed his mind about players kneeling during the anthem because President Donald Trump has made the anthem about patriotism.

Jones was speaking in the aftermath of Vice President Mike Pence leaving the Indianapolis Colts-San Francisco 49ers game on Sunday when around 20 players - about 40 percent of the 49ers roster - kneeled during the 'Star Spangled Banner'. Jones and the rest of the Cowboys stood and returned to their sideline and remained standing for the anthem. Jones said Trump said the entire issue could have been avoided if the NFL enforced a rule stating players must stand for the national anthem; however, that requirement is not included in the NFL's game operations manual.

"I don't know about that". Then, they locked arms and stood while Jordin Sparks sang the national anthem. "I think they are afraid of their players, if you want to know the truth, and I think it's disgraceful", he said. "It's so important, if that's what the country is looking at, to look at it differently". "My brothers are in the Marines".
