Union Says NFL Owner's Threat on Flag Violates Labor Law

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick began kneeling during the national anthem before games last year, a move that many NFL teams and players emulated this year to protest racial injustice and police brutality. These latest protests come in the wake of a September 25 rally from President Donald Trump, who spoke out on players who choose to kneel for the anthem.
When the Cowboys, including Jones, took a knee before the national anthem in Week 3 at Arizona, wide receiver Dez Bryant said they did so because of President Donald Trump's remarks earlier in the week saying NFL owners should fire any "son of b--" who kneeled during the anthem.
Jones insisted on Sunday that players would stand for the anthem, and doubled down in an interview on Monday, pointing to a league manual that says players "should" stand.
In the two games since, the Cowboys have stood on the sideline as normal.
The Cowboys have a bye this week but will return to action October 22 against the 49ers. "I've got my morals".
"We can not in anyway give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag", Jones said, according to the Morning News.
Added Dallas-based labor lawyer Rogge Dunn of Clouse Dunn: "Jones can do what he wants".
