  • Here's the Ultimatum Jerry Jones Just Gave Cowboys Players Over Anthem

In a tweet yesterday afternoon, King says he spoke to multiple Cowboys players and that "none of them are going to test Jerry Jones", with "every member of the team" ready to stand during the anthem before their next game on October 22, when they visit the San Francisco 49ers.

Jones sought to ensure players also saw the bigger picture regarding the business side of the situation, including concerns over TV ratings and sponsors, the source said.

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

US Will Withdraw From Unesco, Citing Its 'Anti-Israel Bias'
The resolution also criticised Israel's activities at holy places in Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank. The US is pulling out of the UN's cultural organisation Unesco , accusing it of "anti-Israel" bias.

Rapoport said the meeting was held to "air out frustrations" and added that, while the coaching staff listened to the players' concerns, they were "essentially told to ask [Jones]".

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. A local labor union has filed a complaint to the National Labor Relations Board against the Cowboys saying Jones' threats prevent allowable, "concerted activity" at work.

Meanwhile, Jones told CBS Sports Radio's 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday that players are still free to express themselves, with one caveat: "If we're going to have any recognition, it needs to be before the anthem".

National Football League players have been kneeling during the anthem this season to highlight racial injustice this season but Jones reiterated in a team meeting on Wednesday that he would no longer tolerate the practice. "Understand? We will not... if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play".

In a players and coaches meeting Wednesday, the Cowboys decided the actions they took in Week 3 were appropriate.

"The game ops manual has an ambiguity being used for those who don't want to enforce it- the word "should" stand for anthem is their ambiguity- but how can it be ambiguous when it cites the potential penalties of fines, suspension or loss of draft picks for failing to adhere?" I know in the modern age people think workers shouldn't have rights, but they still do. "We are trying to send Mr. Jones a message that there is a law here".

Are the Los Angeles Rams for real?
Carroll knew John McVay from his two-year stint as San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator in 1995 and "96". Last Sunday Zuerlein was a ideal 7-for-7 on field goals and scored 23 of the Rams' 35 points all on his own.

The only player to comment was union representative Dan Bailey. "So in that sense, yeah, I think we're definitely a unified group".
