Union Says NFL Owner's Threat on Flag Violates Labor Law

ESPN's Wilbon Compares Jerry Jones to Slaveowner Over NFL Protests Labor Union Files Complaint Against Dallas Cowboys Owner

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

So does Jerry Jones believe that all players should stand during the national anthem?

The NAACP issued a Tuesday press release charging Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, with violating NFL players' free speech rights by threatening to bench players who continue to kneel during the national anthem.

"It is about time that Roger Goodell of the NFL is finally demanding that all players STAND for our great National Anthem-RESPECT OUR COUNTRY", Trump tweeted on Wednesday in response to news that NFL team owners and players would talk about the issue next week in previously scheduled owners' meetings.

Cowboys defensive linemen Damontre Moore and David Irving said they held up a fist Sunday at the end of The Star-Spangled Banner.

After President Trump called kneeling NFL players "sons of bitches", the reaction across the league was swift and uniform.

"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". According to multiple reports, Jones met with players to discuss his stance and most players still in the locker room after the meeting told reporters they had no comment, although, per Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, cornerback Orlando Scandrick did pull out a pair of pink cleats for breast cancer awareness to note "they are allowed support". "Period", Jones said, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The Dallas Cowboys owner announced his intention to bench players after Sunday's loss against the Green Bay Packers. "Understand? We will not. if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play". In the past, those protections have only protected people from being punished for belonging to certain political parties but a creative lawyer might try to argue it covers protesting football players, too, he said. "Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear". You can't just roll over someone's rights when they are a worker.
