Jerry Jones: Dallas Cowboys who don't stand for anthem won't play

Dallas Cowboys v Arizona Cardinals

FRISCO, Texas - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, in a meeting Wednesday with players and coaches, said his stance on the national anthem protests was rooted in a desire to play the bad guy and deflect attention from the players, according to a source.

Jones also broached the business side of the argument with his team, explaining the importance of keeping the Cowboys' sponsors satisfied and TV ratings trending upward, according to ESPN.

Players had been told to bring their concerns about Jones' comments to the meeting.

Defensive end David Irving was one of two Cowboys to raise a fist after the national anthem on Sunday.

Local 100 of the United Labor Unions filed a complaint against Jones on Tuesday, alleging the Cowboys owner and general manager violated the National Labor Relations Act with his decree.

"Taking away a worker's freed to associate, act collectively, and speak to grievances on working conditions is disrespecting not only the flag, but everything America stands for".

On Wednesday, Detroit Lions safety Glover Quin, the team's NFL Players Association representative, didn't want to talk much about Jones or potentially being required to stand for the anthem.

"Or if somebody says, 'I'm kneeling for what I believe in, ' then they should be able to do that because that's what this country is about", he added.

He also said "it's in the best interests of the Dallas Cowboys, the National Football League and the players" to respect the American flag. On Sunday, Vice-President Mike Pence left Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis early after around half a dozen 49ers players knelt during the anthem.

"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. And then, like I said, we can have the discussion amongst all the teams as far as that goes".

"I think, from my position, the status quo is the same", Bailey said. He is always speaking to the media about the team.

"The word that comes to mind, and I don't care who doesn't like me using it, is "plantation", he said.

President Trump praised Jones for the move in a tweet Monday night.

"The message will be put out", Quin said.
