NFLPA Jason Garrett respond to Jerry Jones stance on Cowboys protests

A labor union that represents workers in Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas filed a complaint against the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday, alleging that team owner and general manager Jerry Jones is in violation of the National Labor Relations Act by saying that players who do not stand for the national anthem will not play.

After the Cowboys' 35-31 loss to the Green Bay Packers, Jones told reporters his team would stand for the anthem and "if we are disrespecting the flag, then we won't play".

On Sunday, Jones said that any Cowboys player who does anything to disrespect the flag "will not play". Jones and Gase's ultimatum to their respective players flies in the face of this decree, and on Monday morning the head of the NFLPA, DeMaurice Smith, weighed in.

"I know this, we cannot.in the National Football League in any way give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag", he said.

The heated debate over NFL protests during the national anthem have permeated into the world of music, where several musicians have been very vocal over their stances on the trend of kneeling during "The Star Spangled Banner", in order to protest racial injustice. But he said respect for the flag is more important than any issues regarding team unity. "We made our expression".

In that manual, per Sports Illustrated, it does state that all players must on the sideline and standing for the anthem.

He continued: "There is no room here if it comes between looking non-supportive of our players and of each other or creating the impression that you're disrespecting the flag, we will be non-supportive of each other".
