Jerry Jones: Cowboys' Flag Policy Was In Place Last Season

Jerry Jones: Cowboys' Flag Policy Was In Place Last Season

He also referenced the entire poem, including its mention of slavery, the national anthem is based on and how Jones' demands don't match up with the principals of the country. "Once a government is committed to the principle of silencing the voice of opposition, it has only one way to go, and that is down the path of increasingly repressive measures, until it becomes a source of terror to all its citizens and creates a country where everyone lives in fear".

Watch Common speak with TMZ below to see what he says about Jerry Jones' new demands. "We're not looking for blood".

So when it was said, I was just like, Jerry Jones is the owner, that's what he says, he has the right to say what he wants to say - I don't feel like that affects me at all because I never had a plan to do anything during the National Anthem or something like that.

Before their September 25 game against the Arizona Cardinals, the Cowboys players, coaches and staff, which included Jones, stood locked arm in arm and took a knee before the anthem. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to all teams on Tuesday saying he and the fans "believe that everyone should stand for the national anthem".

Now, the league itself is weighing in on the issue, outlining their official policy on the national anthem for the first time to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, who reported it prior to Monday night's game between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears.

Head coach Jason Garrett told reporters Monday neither Irving nor Moore would be disciplined for their actions, per Hairopoulos. "I think it's real important for our players that they have that to reply to anybody whether they're asking them to express themselves or not that the way we do it where I work, where I earn my livelihood is that we stand for the flag".

"We can not in anyway give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag", Jones said, according to the Morning News.

So far no response from the Dallas Cowboys.
