Jason Garrett hasn't talked to Jerry Jones about anthem mandate

After his team's loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told the press that he believes all National Football League players should stand for the anthem.

Jones' comments on Sunday came after he was asked about Vice President Mike Pence's decision to leave an Indianapolis home game in protest of about a dozen San Francisco players who kneeled during the anthem. "Understand? We will not ... if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play". I'm very supportive of the team, but under no circumstances will the Dallas Cowboys-I don't care what happens-under no circumstances will we as an organization, coaches, players, not support and stand and recognize and honor the flag.

Jones said he won't compromise on his stance and that players who don't stand will be punished regardless of their stature on the team.

Jones said he did not see two Cowboys players, Damontre Moore and David Irving, raise their fists as the anthem concluded Sunday. And my understanding of what both of those guys did based on the conversations I had with them was that occurred after the anthem.

Jones mentioned the requirement in the National Football League game operations manual that players must be on the sideline for the anthem.

"We made our expression".

The NFL, which according to the NFLPA has told players that they will have the right to sit or kneel during the anthem, has yet to address the comments from Jones.

"During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking". Jones said Trump said the entire issue could have been avoided if the NFL enforced a rule stating players must stand for the national anthem; however, that requirement is not included in the NFL's game operations manual. Many other players who have since knelt have said the protest is not meant to disrespect the military but to raise awareness for social injustice. "It's so important, if that's what the country is looking at, to look at it differently". "I think they are afraid of their players, if you want to know the truth, and I think it's disgraceful", he said. It's a different dialogue.

"I know this. He's been very pleased".

New York Daily News columnist Shaun King reported Sunday that players from seven teams told him "they have been told they have to stand for the Anthem".
