Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took the NFL's battle over the national anthem to a new level this week when he suggested that players who are "disrespectful" to the USA flag shouldn't be allowed to play.

"If there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play", Jones said Sunday. "Understand? We will not. if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play". 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.

Two weeks ago, the entire team, along with Jones, locked arms and knelt before the anthem. And my understanding of what both of those guys did based on the conversations I had with them was that occurred after the anthem. "Stand for Anthem or sit for game!" "That is what makes us the land of the free and home of the fearless".

"Trump has made (standing for the anthem) about patriotism", Ross said.

Other players joined him in taking a knee, and late last month during a speech in Alabama President Trump said that owners should fire the players who protest, igniting a national firestorm.

During that next media briefing, Lockhart surely will be asked to respond to the latest tweet from President Trump, the new position from Jones that players must stand, and the decision of Vice President Mike Pence to leave the 49ers-Colts game after 23 members of the 49ers roster took a knee during the anthem. Jones and the rest of the Cowboys stood and returned to their sideline and remained standing for the anthem.

"I know this. He's been very pleased".

After the Cowboys' pregame demonstration in Arizona, President Donald Trump tweeted that he spoke with Jones, calling the owner "a victor who knows how to get things done". "I think we've had great communication with our players in terms of the way to do things in terms of how we can certainly have respect and be sensitive to the things that they're faced with as we did in Arizona", he said.

Meanwhile, the president also fired a completely different shot across the NFL's bow by tweeting out a threat to take away the special tax breaks the league gets all across the country. "Whenever you're dealing with the flag, you're dealing with something different". "My brothers are in the Marines".
