Jason Garrett says Jerry Jones meeting was out of love

Jason Garrett says Jerry Jones meeting was out of love

A chapter of the United Labor Unions has filed a complaint against Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones after he threatened to bench players who kneel during the national anthem.

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 said his statements were created to play the bad guy and deflect attention away from the frustrated players, according to a report.

Players had been told to bring their concerns about Jones' comments to the meeting.

In the meantime, if Scandrick's comment is any indication, it doesn't sound like the Cowboys convinced Jones to let them kneel during the anthem.

As we previously reported, Trump wants NFL players suspended if they don't stand for the national anthem.

Following widespread protests in the wake of Trump's comments, Jones and the Cowboys knelt before the anthem but then stood during it.

Rev. Al Sharpton said Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has a "plantation mentality" in a news conference Tuesday where he called for ESPN to reinstate anchor Jemele Hill, who was suspended two weeks for violating the company's social media policy. "Now that the president has gotten involved in it and you've seen owners responding by at least stating they will take disciplinary action, it makes it closer to being related to terms and conditions of their employment". The team and the National Football League declined comment on the filing.

He said players have voiced their opinions to him. "So in that forum, I'm more of just a middleman, be an ear here in the locker room and provide feedback to them".

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".

"I think, from my position, the status quo is the same", Bailey said. "So I think the likelihood on the basis of that charge alone, that this gets much steam, is probably unlikely".

President Donald Trump, however, tweeted his admiration for Jones's stance and encouragement of his players to do the same.

"I was listening to my music", Scandrick said. The union represents workers Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana. "The message, it will be out".
