  • NFL Owners Are Reportedly Pressuring Their Players to Stop Protesting

Dallas Cowboys players reportedly held a team meeting Wednesday to discuss owner Jerry Jones' policy on standing for the national anthem, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

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

But it still appeared a departure from Jones's previous stance displayed earlier this season, when he knelt along with the Cowboys players prior to the anthem, before a game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale on September 26 on Monday Night Football.

"We're going to respect the flag, and I'm going to create the perception of it, ".

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. "But if there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play. OK?"

"The employer evidenced by repeated public statements is attempting to threaten, coerce and intimidate all Dallas Cowboys players on the roster in order to prevent them from exercising concerted activity protected under the act by saying he will fire any players involved in such concerted activity", the complaint to the NLRB states.

The Dallas Cowboys owner announced his intention to bench players after Sunday's loss against the Green Bay Packers.

In a players and coaches meeting Wednesday, the Cowboys decided the actions they took in Week 3 were appropriate.

When asked if he would really sit a player like Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott and Dez Bryant, Jones initially deferred.

He added, " if somebody says, 'I'm kneeling for what I believe in, ' ... then they should be able to do that because that's what this country is about". "So in that forum, I'm more of just a middleman, be an ear here in the locker room and provide feedback to them. So in that sense, yeah, I think we're definitely a unified group". "That's what this says to me and to mine", Wilbon said, imitating what he assessed as Jones' thoughts. He is always speaking to the media about the team.

"The message will be put out", Quin said.
