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

The NFL does not force players to stand for the anthem, per the game manual, though a rule change is reportedly under discussion.

Players had a meeting early in the day to talk about team owner Jerry Jones' vow not to play any player he deems to be disrespectful to the national anthem.

President Donald Trump is praising Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for his stance against players protesting during the national anthem. Pence left the stadium after some San Francisco players took a knee during the national anthem. Unlike the NBA's collective bargaining agreement, the NFL CBA does not specifically require players to stand for the anthem. Trump tweeted later that he had told Pence to leave if any players kneeled.

Neville's future in WWE uncertain after walking out before Raw
Neville's last appearance on television was during the segment where Kalisto joined the cruiserweight division on Raw last week. He's been a bright spot in the cruiserweight division so hopefully, WWE can convince him to stay.

"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".

Jones said on Sunday: "There is no room here if it comes between looking non-supportive of our players and of each other or creating the impression that you're disrespecting the flag, we will be non-supportive of each other".

ESPN's Josina Anderson tweeted out quotes from one anonymous player who seems apoplectic. Another said they had a better feeling for Jones' comments because at first he wondered if Jones had turned against them, according to the source. Employment law allows private sector employers great latitude in restricting employee conduct and speech while at work.

Corker On Trump Lying: 'Everyone Knows He Does It'

The Dallas Cowboys owner announced his intention to bench players after Sunday's loss against the Green Bay Packers.

"If the government pays for the patriotic display and the firing is a result of the behavior being deemed insufficiently patriotic, it is conceivable that that a claim could then be articulated", said Floyd Abrams, a First Amendment attorney in NY. They are still being paid, and I don't think they necessarily have the right to play in games. "I don't want there to be any misunderstanding as to where I want the personnel of the Cowboys to be when we're at the No. 1 workplace we have, which is the field and the sideline on game day". Trump tweeted. Trump has faced strident criticism since he told a rally in Alabama on September 22 that any National Football League player who knelt for the anthem should be "fired".
