As far as what constitutes "disrespecting the flag", Jones said: "You'll know it when you see it". The law here is that you have the ability to act with your co-worker.
Michael J. Golden, lecturer, trial advocacy program, University of Texas: "In order for professional football teams to be the most competitive they can be, the CBA gives management significant rights to decide who plays and who doesn't - and ultimately who gets cut and who gets kept".
A prominent USA labor union has filed a complaint against the Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones, following his threat to punish players who kneel during the national anthem.
"If there is anything disrespecting the flag, then we will not play".
Jones' comments comes two weeks after he himself joined the Cowboys in kneeling during the anthem. He compared the funds to when governments provide subsidies to move an auto plant from one state to another. They really sending a message and that message is that there is a high cost to free speech.
But those political motives of kneeling likely would not protect the players from discipline.
Wayne Giampietro, general counsel for the First Amendment Lawyers Association, said if teams are just renting fields from local government it doesn't mean that the governmental entity has anything to do with how players are treated.
"I'm hoping this doesn't go to hell and back on the labor board", Rathke said.
Added Dallas-based labor lawyer Rogge Dunn of Clouse Dunn: "Jones can do what he wants". "We're going to respect the flag, and I'm going to create the perception of it".
Jones portrayed his statement as an employment issue rather than a First Amendment issue, saying standing was in "the best interest of the Cowboys". "So it didn't really affect me but hopefully it didn't affect anybody else on the team". On Sunday, Vice-President Mike Pence left Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis early after around half a dozen 49ers players knelt during the anthem. The president has tweeted several times since then to keep the issue in play, and said Pence's walkout was at his request. With his history and this ultimatum, Jones has basically told Cowboys players that he would rather they beat a woman a fraction of their size half to death than stand up for what they believe in.
