Jerry Jones takes part in meeting with Cowboys players about protest remarks

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett says that the meeting owner Jerry Jones had with the team about having to stand for the national anthem was out of love, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.

Jones also broached the business side of the argument with his team, explaining the importance of keeping the Cowboys' sponsors satisfied and TV ratings trending upward, according to ESPN.

Jones, in the team meeting held after practice, also offered the players a chance to speak with him one-on-one, the source said.?Players had been told to bring their concerns about Jones' comments to the meeting.

Wilbon's co-host Tony Kornheiser voiced his concern that key players like quarterback Dak Prescott or wideout Dez Bryant could force Jones to bench them if they were to protest.

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

Trump called for National Football League players to be fired if they did not stand for the anthem.

Jones said the NFL's operations manual left the issue of standing for the national anthem ambiguous.

"Local 100 filed charges with Region 16 of the NLRB against the Dallas Cowboys 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", the post read.
