Jones reiterated his position during his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan (KRLD-FM) on Tuesday morning and said it's in the franchise's best interest not to be involved in the debate over patriotism and social causes.

Jones has said players will not play, not that they would be fired, if they do not stand for the anthem, but Wade Rathke, Local 100s chief organizer, said that is a "distinction without difference when it comes to the law".
