LA-born National Football League owner in pickle with Cowboys players, president

Some Cowboys players were reported to be unhappy with Jones's stance over the anthem, and an ESPN source said Jones had claimed to have taken a "bad guy" role to deflect negative attention from his players. So when it was said, I was just like, Jerry Jones is the owner, that's what he says, he has the right to say what he wants to say - I don't feel like that affects me at all because I never had a plan to do anything during the National Anthem or something like that.

Jones sought to ensure players that he saw the bigger picture on how the situation is impacting the business side of the NFL.

"If there is anything that is disrespectful to the flag then we will not play", Jones told the Dallas Morning News.

According to the filing to the National Labor Relations Board, "the employer, evidenced by repeated public statements, is attempting to threaten, coerce and intimidate all Dallas Cowboys players on the roster in order to prevent them from exercising concerted activity protected under the act by saying that he will fire any players involved in such concerted activity".

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was the first to protest social injustice during the national anthem, with multiple players in the NFL and other sports following his lead.

Bailey did say he's participated in several conference calls during the past two weeks as the president has made ending the National Football League anthem protests one of his top priorities. No matter how much I pay them, they are not equal to me.

"We've had multiple conference calls", Bailey said. "Stand for Anthem or sit for game!" Why is he on his knee if a knee should take you out of the game?

Bailey said the team's focus did not appear to be affected Wednesday.

As far as what constitutes "disrespecting the flag", Jones said: "You'll know it when you see it".

President Trump tweeted in support of Mr. Jones on Monday night.

"Yesterday's meeting was about Jerry stating his position, and I think it was well received", the head coach said.

Leaders of the Denver Broncos got it right when they decided two weeks ago to move on from the anthem protests. "I like that YG song".

One player referred to his comments as, "Fraudulent".
