Jerry Jones takes part in meeting with players about protest remarks

Common Jerry Jones Has 'Slave Owner Mentality' ... with Benching Threat Trump Searched the NFL Rule Book to Stop Players Taking a Knee, and It Worked

By telling players they can't stand for the anthem, Jerry Jones is effectively chilling such expression, which is a violation of the act.

After Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on Sunday that any player that disrespects the flag "will not play", the team held a meeting with Jones to discuss anthem policies.

"It is about time that Roger Goodell of the NFL is finally demanding that all players STAND for our great National Anthem-RESPECT OUR COUNTRY", Trump tweeted on Wednesday in response to news that NFL team owners and players would talk about the issue next week in previously scheduled owners' meetings.

One player said Jones expected the Cowboys will continue to stand during the anthem.

"I don't think this unfair labor practice charge will go very far because, one, it hasn't been filed by the NFL Players Association, which is the union that represents the players", said Russell D. Cawyer, a Fort Worth-based lawyer who is a partner and chairman of Kelly Hart's labor and employment practice group.

Early Tuesday, President Donald Trump applauded Jones' actions and slammed suspended ESPN host Jemele Hill for personally attacking the Cowboys' owner.

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.

Michael J. Golden, lecturer, trial advocacy program, University of Texas: "In order for professional football teams to be the most competitive they can be, the CBA gives management significant rights to decide who plays and who doesn't - and ultimately who gets cut and who gets kept".

But until a Cowboys player takes a knee or does something that Jones deems is "disrespectful to the flag", the policy will likely never be tested.

Some states have their own First Amendment-style protections, and they can include protection of political speech, Tushnet said.

Added Dallas-based labor lawyer Rogge Dunn of Clouse Dunn: "Jones can do what he wants". "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". However, another players said Jones still expected them to stand during the anthem.
