Jerry Jones says Cowboys players who disrespect the flag will not play

Asked Tuesday whether he would sit a Dallas star - Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott or Dez Bryant - if he takes a knee during the national anthem, Jones said, essentially, try me.

And they're not necessarily slamming the powerful and outspoken Jones for suggesting his players will be benched if they disrespect the flag.

Jones said showing respect for the flag and the anthem is more important to him than any potential issues of team unity. Understand? If we are disrespecting the flag, then we won't play. "As far as whether or not basically I will institute, or basically do what I said, I just would say that the implication that we're not respecting the flag is just not going to be accepted".

The event comes after President Donald Trump said National Football League owners should "fire" any player that kneels during the anthem. "We will not. if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play".

"If you work in your workplace", Jones said, "there's things you can't do in relation to the perception of your customers". And so I'm not going to have a situation with the flag where there is a debate about whether we're respecting that or not.
