President Trump praised Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones Monday night for threatening to bench players who kneel during the national anthem. "I think they are afraid of their players, if you want to know the truth, and I think it's disgraceful", he said. The league has said it doesn't plan to punish players over anthem protests.

After the game, Dallas owner Jerry Jones admitted the Cowboys would have liked to eat away a few more ticks off the clock, which wouldn't have allowed Rodgers to lead a seven-play touchdown march to steal the 35-31 victory.

"I don't know about that". "There is a debate about standing for the flag, being disrespectful, so I am removing us from that debate" said Jones. "You understand? If we are disrespecting the flag then we won't play".

"I look forward to the day when everyone in management can unite and truly embrace and articulate what the flag stands for, liberty and justice for all, instead of some of them just talking about standing", Smith said Monday, per the Associated Press' Schuyler Dixon (via the Washington Post). "And we have", he added.

But he did agree with Vice President Mike Pence's decision to walk out of the Indianapolis Colts game on Sunday afternoon after many players from the San Francisco 49ers knelt during the anthem. 'We will not disrespect the flag'. He's got rights, too. "I do, too", Jones told reporters of Pence. "Period", Jones said Sunday night after his team lost to the Green Bay Packers. Jones then stood and linked arms with them during the anthem. Then they all stood for the anthem.
