Trump commends Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones for warning players

Jerry Jones says he will bench players who disrespect the flag

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Monday that the policy he revealed regarding his team standing for the national anthem isn't new, according to ESPN.com's Chris Mortensen.

"If there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play", Jones said, ESPN reported.

Jones unexpectedly commented on the issue after the Cowboys' last-minute loss to the Packers Sunday evening, saying, "If there is anything disrespecting the flag, then we will not play".

However, Jones has now said that the league can not give any "implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag".

Jones said Cowboys players would stand for the anthem.

No Cowboys kneeled during the anthem, however, two of the Texan team's players, David Irving and Damontre Moore, raised their fists during the song's conclusion. And my understanding of what both of those guys did based on the conversations I had with them was that occurred after the anthem.

Trump and Jones have spoken about the anthem issue. "We made our expression". This year, Jones has become the first owner to actually send that message, explaining it to reporters on Sunday night and repeating the same message to ESPN tonight, which of course prompted ESPN to act like Jones was telling ESPN something new. But there is no question in my mind that the National Football League and the Dallas Cowboys are going to stand up for the flag. Jones and the rest of the Cowboys stood and returned to their sideline and remained standing for the anthem.

After the Cowboys' pregame demonstration in Arizona, President Donald Trump tweeted that he spoke with Jones, calling the owner "a victor who knows how to get things done". Many other players who have since knelt have said the protest is not meant to disrespect the military but to raise awareness for social injustice.

"Trump has made [standing for the anthem] about patriotism", Ross said, on a day when three Miami players stayed in the tunnel rather than stand on the sideline during the anthem. I know the vice president did leave because in his opinion, the teams were. "It's so important if that's what the country is looking at to look at [the protest] differently". Then, they locked arms and stood while Jordin Sparks sang the national anthem. It's a different dialogue.

"My dad is a master sergeant, he's a Marine".

"I know this. He's been very pleased".

"I think they've had a great understanding".
