Union Says NFL Owner's Threat on Flag Violates Labor Law

Here's the Ultimatum Jerry Jones Just Gave Cowboys Players Over Anthem

ESPN's "Pardon the Interruption" host Michael Wilbon compared Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to a slaveowner after Jones all but banned players from protesting during the national anthem.

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. Two players, defensive linemen David Irving and Damontre Moore, raised fists at the end of Sunday's anthem.

Local 100 of the United Labor Unions filed a charge with the National Labor Relations Board in Fort Worth on Tuesday, saying that Jones has violated the National Labor Relations Act with his threats.

According to the NFL's game manual, players are not required to stand for the anthem; however, it is written that they "should" stand at attention.

Next week, the NFL owners will discuss whether to change the written guidelines and require players to stand for the national anthem.

"Understand? We will not ... if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play".




When asked how he felt about Jones telling the team they had to stand for the anthem, he said no comment seven times.

"Wouldn't you love to see one of these National Football League owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, 'Get that son of a bitch off the field right now", the president said to a cheering crowd.

In a players and coaches meeting Wednesday, the Cowboys decided the actions they took in Week 3 were appropriate. When the anthem was performed, they stood arm-in-arm with the players. "He wanted to make sure they knew that". "So in that sense, yeah, I think we're definitely a unified group". "We are trying to send Mr. Jones a message that there is a law here". He is always speaking to the media about the team.

Hill, who last month rankled ESPN execs and others over a tweet where she called President Trump "a white supremacist", was suspended Monday for writing on Twitter that people should put pressure on the Cowboys by "not patronizing" the team's advertisers.

"I was listening to my music", Scandrick said. "We're *allowed* to support that", Scandrick said.

Meanwhile, Lions safety Glover Quin, who is Detroit's union representative, said that when the NFLPA responds to Jones' remarks, it won't be ambiguous.
