Common Jerry Jones Has 'Slave Owner Mentality' ... with Benching Threat

"Jerry Jones' comments are more than tone-deaf, more than misinformed and misguided - they are a public commitment by an National Football League owner to violate his players' constitutional right to free speech - one of the principles on which our nation was founded", said Tony Covington, a former National Football League player who now serves as the NAACP's Senior Director of Corporate Affairs.

Defensive lineman David Irving, who raised his fist at the end of the anthem last Sunday, said, via Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News, "yeah, we're together" when asked if the locker room and organization are together and unified.

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. The union represents workers Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana. "So I think the likelihood on the basis of that charge alone, that this gets much steam, is probably unlikely". Another said they had a better feeling for Jones' comments because at first he wondered if Jones had turned against them, according to the source. "That's just not what they can do when it comes to concerted activities". The following Sunday was defined by entire teams kneeling-taking Colin Kaepernick's protest against racial injustice and inequality and pointing it at a president determined to exacerbate those issues.

Rev. Al Sharpton explains why Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' decision to make players stand for the national anthem "smacks of a plantation mentality". Later, Trump said he spoke to Jones and that Jones told him the Cowboys would stand for the anthem going forward. "That's not why they're kneeling, but if it were, that would be something that would clearly be a protected activity".

Could A Nintendo Game Boy Classic Edition Be In The Works?
Famitsu reports that consumers bought up 368,913 Mini Super Famicoms during the hardware's first four days of availability. Even though a Classic Mini Game Boy is not completely out of question, there are some limitations to it.

The union's chief organizer Wade Rathke said Jones is bullying his employees to "unilaterally establish a previously nonexistent" work condition. "The point is he is threatening anybody and everybody". "We are trying to send Mr. Jones a message that there is a law here". The law here is that you have the ability to act with your co-worker. I know in the modern age people think workers shouldn't have rights, but they still do. You can't bully workers on the job.

President Donald Trump says Vice President Mike Pence's attendance at a 49ers-Colts game this weekend was "long planned". Jones might be confused. Not to mention this just get back for her telling the truth about Trump which is also wack because "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public". "Right now, it's all anticipatory, no action has been taken".

"The remedy for this stuff is to cease and desist", Green said.
