Jason Garrett: Cowboys united on anthem protest issue

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones added fuel to the national anthem controversy when he said he would bench any player who didn't stand during the playing of 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.

On Wednesday, Jones met with his players to discuss the new rule, which is in stark contrast to his actions just weeks before when Jones joined Cowboys players in kneeling before the anthem ahead of a nationally televised game against the Cardinals.

Tony Covington, a former National Football League player who now serves as Senior Director of Corporate Affairs for the NAACP, deemed Jones' comments as "more than tone-deaf, more than misinformed and misguided" in an official statement.

During his visit, when Evangelin tried to withdraw some money from an ATM kiosk, he found his debit card blocked. When the local police came to know about this, they reached the spot and took him to the police station.


Local 100 of the United Labor Unions filed a complaint against Jones on Tuesday, alleging the Cowboys owner and general manager violated the National Labor Relations Act with his decree.

Jones told ESPN that the flag policy has been in effect since last season when players across the NFL began kneeling during the national anthem, following Kaepernick's example.

"There is a debate about standing for the flag, being disrespectful, so I am removing us from that debate", he said.

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

"Scandrick's reaction would support recent leaks out of the Cowboys locker room that suggest players were upset with Jones prohibiting anthem protests after his pre-anthem kneeling display in Week 3". During the anthem, they stood arm in arm.

He said players have voiced their opinions to him. "He wanted to make sure they knew that". "That's what this says to me and to mine", Wilbon said, imitating what he assessed as Jones' thoughts. "We come in every day to work and our focus is on practice and trying to win ballgames. So I think the likelihood on the basis of that charge alone, that this gets much steam, is probably unlikely". He is always speaking to the media about the team.

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", Scandrick said.

The only player to comment was union representative Dan Bailey. "The message, it will be out".
