Cowboys player says Jerry Jones did 180 on team with anthem

Common Thinks Dalls Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Has Slave Owner Mentality

Cowboys players were tight lipped after practice Wednesday about a private team meeting with owner Jerry Jones.

Jones sought to ensure players that he saw the bigger picture on how the situation is impacting the business side of the NFL.

According to several reports, players did not discuss what happened in the meeting, with most declining to comment.

Jones later clarified he meant kneeling or sitting during the anthem was what he considered disrespectful.

Local 100 announced its complaint on Facebook, writing that the union aims "to stop owner, Jerry Jones, from threatening players with benching or termination for exercising their right to concerted activity under the National Labor Relations Act".

"He's very sensitive to some of the issues, as we all are, that the players are talking about", said Garrett.

The "Glory" MC also says players should be able to kneel for what they believe in, and even makes reference to the poem that the National Anthem is based on, which makes a mention of slavery.

Place-kicker Dan Bailey, who also is a captain, serves as the Cowboys' representative to the NFL Players Association.

In a players and coaches meeting Wednesday, the Cowboys decided the actions they took in Week 3 were appropriate. The team and the National Football League declined comment on the filing.

"The game ops manual has an ambiguity being used for those who don't want to enforce it- the word "should" stand for anthem is their ambiguity- but how can it be ambiguous when it cites the potential penalties of fines, suspension or loss of draft picks for failing to adhere?" "So in that forum, I'm more of just a middleman, be an ear here in the locker room and provide feedback to them. I think that was part of Mr. Jones' message yesterday".

Jones is a supporter of President Donald Trump, who has been a vocal critic of the national anthem protests.

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

The only player to comment was union representative Dan Bailey.
