No Lies: Common Says Jerry Jones Has Slave Owner Mentality

Common Jerry Jones Has 'Slave Owner Mentality' ... with Benching Threat Trump Searched the NFL Rule Book to Stop Players Taking a Knee, and It Worked

Since Sunday, Jones has been outspoken regarding his stance that players must "not disrespect the flag" and that they must stand for the anthem or they will be benched.

Rev. Al Sharpton explains why Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' decision to make players stand for the national anthem "smacks of a plantation mentality".

While the Cowboys already have a team policy in place regarding the anthem, Goodell's letter suggested a new rule, similar to the NBA's requirement for its players to stand for the anthem, could be enacted after discussing the matter at the fall meetings on October 17 and 18. There is, however, a section in the NFL Game Operations Manual that mentions that players "should stand at attention, hold helmets in their left hand and refrain from talking".

"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". "I've got my morals". Another said they had a better feeling for Jones' comments because at first he wondered if Jones had turned against them, according to the source. Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act allows employees to engage in activities to improve workplace conditions. Jones noted during an appearance on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas Tuesday that: "If there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play". "That's not why they're kneeling, but if it were, that would be something that would clearly be a protected activity".

Napa County Public Information Kristi Jourdan (cq) told Wine Enthusiast , "We're now at zero containment for Atlas Peak". Sonoma County Sheriff's Department wrote, "Mass evacuations are taking place...911 systems are inundated".

Tony Covington, a former National Football League player who now serves as Senior Director of Corporate Affairs for the NAACP, deemed Jones' comments as "more than tone-deaf, more than misinformed and misguided" in an official statement.

"If it is a private stadium, it is not a public forum and the person imposing the rule is not a government actor", said Stephen F. Ross, director of the Penn State University Institute for Sports Law, Policy, and Research.

But those political motives of kneeling likely would not protect the players from discipline. "If liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear". "Understand? We will not. if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play".
