Frustrated Cowboys players meet to discuss Jones' anthem threats

NFLPA executive director blasts owners for not protecting players during anthem

The heated debate over NFL protests during the national anthem have permeated into the world of music, where several musicians have been very vocal over their stances on the trend of kneeling during "The Star Spangled Banner", in order to protest racial injustice. The Cowboys owner said his comments were meant to take his players out of the national anthem debate, removing any gray area about the team's expectations. "This is a workplace issue".

Jones outlined those consequences on Sunday night after the Green Bay Packers beat his Cowboys at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Jones seemed to take Pence's side, saying, "If there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play".

Members of the Dallas Cowboys link arms and kneel during the National Anthem before the start of the NFL game against the Arizona Cardinals at the University of Phoenix Stadium on September 25, 2017 in Glendale, Arizona.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is the latest to stir up controversy regarding the National Football League protests, as he recently stated that any Cowboys player that "disrespects" the flag won't play, and Common has some serious thoughts on the matter. That's nothing new as far as that being my wish or the way I want the Cowboys. Or 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. "I would ask anybody to look at my record relative to what I say I'm going to do, and go from there".

Coach Jason Garrett did not speak to the media on Wednesday.
