Jones has stepped up his criticism in recent days of players' national anthem protests meant to draw attention to racial inequality and has pledged to bench players who refuse to stand during The Star-Spangled Banner.

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 10, 2017A big salute to Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys, who will BENCH players who disrespect our Flag."Stand for Anthem or sit for game!"

No Cowboys player has kneeled during the anthem, although the team met Wednesday to discuss Jones' comments.

Jones' comments comes two weeks after he himself joined the Cowboys in kneeling during the anthem. Trump explained later that evening in a tweet that he had instructed Pence to leave the game between the Indianapolis Colts and 49ers if "any players kneeled, disrespecting our country".

The Cowboys have a bye this week but will return to action October 22 against the 49ers.

"There's nothing that I've seen that shows the union that did file the [unfair labor practice] has any connection with the NFL Players Association, the NFL, or any particular player".

It is worth noting that Jones never said that any players would be fired.

National Football League players who have kneeled have done so for varying reasons.

"This is a workplace issue", Jones said. The law here is that you have the ability to act with your co-worker.

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

Some states have their own First Amendment-style protections, and they can include protection of political speech, Tushnet said. Around kickoff, Pence wrote on Twitter that he left because he would not "dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem". "If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear". Later, Trump said he spoke to Jones and that Jones told him the Cowboys would stand for the anthem going forward. Not to mention this just get back for her telling the truth about Trump which is also wack because "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public".
