Cowboys player plays anti-Trump rap song in locker room

Cowboys player plays anti-Trump rap song in locker room

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

Jones also said he would speak to players one-on-one if they wanted to talk.

"The policy and my actions are going to be that if you're not honoring, standing for the flag in a way that a lot of our fans feel that you should, if that's not the case, then you won't play", Jones said, noting that his stance is "nothing new". Earlier this week, the Cowboys owner threatened to bench any player who "disrespects the flag"-which is, again, a willfully ignorant interpretation of what's happening in the first place".

A labor union that represents workers in Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana has filed a charge alleging that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has violated the National Labor Relations Act with his threats to discipline players if they protest during the national anthem.

Bailey did say he's participated in several conference calls during the past two weeks as the president has made ending the National Football League anthem protests one of his top priorities. I don't want to cause no attention to nobody else and bring unwanted attention, but on the same token, you know, there's certain things that people are doing it for.

"I mean, we ironed out everything that we needed at this time", Prescott said.

Bailey said the team's focus did not appear to be affected Wednesday. However, Jones took a knee with his club prior to the playing of the anthem before their September 25 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.

"Yesterday's meeting was about Jerry stating his position, and I think it was well received", the head coach said. "I think Mr. Jones should just say, 'I stepped out of line.' Fine".

The sources said Jerry addressed the potential of anthem protests affecting the business of the Dallas Cowboys either through poor TV ratings or the potential loss of advertising partners. "I like that YG song". This union was offended by those comments. "The message, it will be out".
