Labor union challenges Cowboys' anthem stance

That drew a sharp response from the National Football League players' union Monday saying the comments by Jones contradicted assurances last week from Commissioner Roger Goodell and New York Giants President John Mara that players could express themselves without retribution. This union was offended by those comments.

Over the weekend, Jones threatened to bench any of his players who dared to disrespect the National Anthem and the American Flag by kneeling or even raising a fist.

Meanwhile, Archer reported a field agent will be tasked with investigating Local 100's allegations. "That's what this says to me and mine".

Speaking to Sports Illustrated, an NFL spokesperson said: "The national anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the national anthem".

Jones' decision drew praise from President Donald Trump, who previously called for owners to cut "that son of a bitch" who protests social injustice during the anthem. Executive director DeMaurice Smith said Jones contradicted assurances last week from Commissioner Roger Goodell and New York Giants President John Mara that players could express themselves without reprisals.

In an interview with 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, Jones made his stance on the matter clear.

The Dallas Cowboys owner indicated after a 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday that anyone from his team who participated in such a demonstration would not be allowed to play.

Head coach Jason Garrett told reporters Monday neither Irving nor Moore would be disciplined for their actions, per Hairopoulos. "The players are here to serve me, and they will do what I want".

"We can not in anyway give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag", Jones said, according to the Morning News.

"My initial reaction, honestly, I was in the locker room - we're talking about the game, and one of the guys came up and kind of said it to me on the side, and I was like, 'Did he say that a week ago?' Because nothing's been going on now for that to come up and he said somebody asked him that question".
