ESPN's Wilbon Compares Jerry Jones to Slaveowner Over NFL Protests

NFL Owners Are Reportedly Pressuring Their Players to Stop Protesting

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Sunday that any Dallas player who does not stand for the national anthem and is "disrespectful to the flag" would not play.

In the meeting, 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.

Later, Trump said he spoke to Jones and that Jones told him the Cowboys would stand for the anthem going forward.

Wilbon's co-host Tony Kornheiser voiced his concern that key players like quarterback Dak Prescott or wideout Dez Bryant could force Jones to bench them if they were to protest. Jones himself had knelt before the anthem with his players earlier this season.

"The Local 100 chapter of the United Labor Unions filed a complaint against Jones on Tuesday with the National Labor Relations Board, according to a post on their Facebook page".

On Wednesday, Trump praised the National Football League for demanding players stand, which the National Football League later fact-checked.

Hillary Clinton 'shocked and appalled' by Weinstein accusations
As for Obama and his post-White House team, however, no official statement or comment has yet to be publicized. What's remarkable about that silence is that Weinstein isn't, really, denying the allegations.

The national anthem protests appear to be coming to a head, with the NFL telling teams they have a proposal to move past the protests and begin focusing on highlighting players' work on social issues.

"The policy and my actions are going to be that if you're not honoring, standing for the flag in a way that a lot of our fans feel that you should, if that's not the case, then you won't play", Jones said, noting that his stance is "nothing new". "I think Mr. Jones should just say, 'I stepped out of line.' Fine".

"I think, from my position, the status quo is the same", Bailey said.

"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". "I like that YG song". Jones donated a large sum to Trump's presidential campaign past year and has been in contact with him since the protests spread in Week 3.

The only player to comment was union representative Dan Bailey.
