Jerry Jones gives Cowboys players ultimatum: Stand for anthem or sit for game

Here's the Ultimatum Jerry Jones Just Gave Cowboys Players Over Anthem

The NFL does not force players to stand for the anthem, per the game manual, though a rule change is reportedly under discussion.

Jones has stepped up his criticism in recent days of players' national anthem protests meant to draw attention to racial inequality and has pledged to bench players who refuse to stand during The Star-Spangled Banner.

The latest musician to join in on the issue is Common, who claimed Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had a "slave owner mentality" after he threatened to bench any player who protested during the anthem, a new TMZ video shows.

Rapoport said the meeting was held to "air out frustrations" and added that, while the coaching staff listened to the players' concerns, they were "essentially told to ask [Jones]".

In the two games since, the players have stood on the sideline with no one kneeling.

Early Tuesday, President Donald Trump applauded Jones' actions and slammed suspended ESPN host Jemele Hill for personally attacking the Cowboys' owner. While NFL teams are private businesses and not covered by the First Amendment, the use of publicly-funded stadiums and acceptance of government funding for pregame patriotic displays could bring legal liability. "I've got my morals".

Jones said that, in the wake of continued demonstrations, players who disrespect the flag will not play in that game. "Period", Jones said, according to the Dallas Morning News. Private employers always have the right to control the language and the speech, just like they can impose a dress code and ethical performance obligations. Trump tweeted. Trump has faced strident criticism since he told a rally in Alabama on September 22 that any National Football League player who knelt for the anthem should be "fired".

ESPN's Josina Anderson tweeted out quotes from one anonymous player who seems apoplectic. If they are taking a knee in protest of something the owner has done to them, and it being connected to the conditions of employment, then they might have a case. "That's not why they're kneeling, but if it were, that would be something that would clearly be a protected activity". They are still being paid, and I don't think they necessarily have the right to play in games. "But these are workers with rights with the National Labor Relations Board".

Stewart J. Schwab, Jonathan and Ruby Zhu Professor of Law, Cornell University: "The player who does not stand can be [accused of] conduct detrimental to the public confidence in the NFL". The law here is that you have the ability to act with your co-worker.
