The NAACP Is Full-On Going To War With Jerry Jones

NFLPA Jason Garrett respond to Jerry Jones stance on Cowboys protests

Jones sought to ensure players also saw the bigger picture regarding the business side of the situation, including concerns over TV ratings and sponsors, the source said. Employment law allows private sector employers great latitude in restricting employee conduct and speech while at work.

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. "Understand? We will not. if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play". Kaepernick remains unsigned and wants to resume his career, but other National Football League players have picked up his cause and kneeled, sat or made other gestures during "The Star Spangled Banner".

"That does not convert the auto plant into a public facility", Ross said. "That's not why they're kneeling, but if it were, that would be something that would clearly be a protected activity".

But those political motives of kneeling likely would not protect the players from discipline. However, Jones took a knee with his club prior to the playing of the anthem before their September 25 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. "Period", Jones said, according to the Dallas Morning News. "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". "So it didn't really affect me but hopefully it didn't affect anybody else on the team". However, another players said Jones still expected them to stand during the anthem. The president has tweeted several times since then to keep the issue in play, and said Pence's walkout was at his request.

In a players and coaches meeting Wednesday, the Cowboys decided the actions they took in Week 3 were appropriate. And commissioner Roger Goodell sent a letter to teams on Tuesday reiterating the language.
