No Lies: Common Says Jerry Jones Has Slave Owner Mentality

No Lies: Common Says Jerry Jones Has Slave Owner Mentality

Speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday, Jones said the players could express themselves prior to the national anthem in a similar manner to how the team handled things before their September 25 game at the Arizona Cardinals. These latest protests come in the wake of a September 25 rally from President Donald Trump, who spoke out on players who choose to kneel for the anthem.

Local 100 of the United Labor Unions filed a complaint against the Dallas Cowboys, alleging the owner and GM violated the National Labor Relations Act when Jones, on Sunday, said that if any of his players "disrespects the flag", they will not play.

Before the anthem of that game, players stood arm in arm with Jones, other front office executives, coaches and staff and took a knee.

Earlier on Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence left the Indianapolis Colts' game after 23 San Francisco 49ers players chose to kneel during the anthem.

The Cowboys have a bye this week but will return to action October 22 against the 49ers.

"If you do not honor and stand for the flag in a way that a lot of our fans think that you should, if that's not the case, then you won't play", Jones said Tuesday on a Dallas radio station.

Michael J. Golden, lecturer, trial advocacy program, University of Texas: "In order for professional football teams to be the most competitive they can be, the CBA gives management significant rights to decide who plays and who doesn't - and ultimately who gets cut and who gets kept. Period", Jones said, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Some states have their own First Amendment-style protections, and they can include protection of political speech, Tushnet said.

Trump tweets that Pence "is receiving great praise for leaving game after the players showed such disrespect for country!" The law here is that you have the ability to act with your co-worker. "We're going to respect the flag, and I'm going to create the perception of it". I don't want to cause no attention to nobody else and bring unwanted attention, but on the same token, you know, there's certain things that people are doing it 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.
