Michael Wilbon Compares Jerry Jones To A Slave Owner

Share

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.

"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", Tony Covington, a former National Football League safety and the NAACP's senior director of corporate affairs, said in the group's statement.

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".

After a July meeting Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri in July, Trump suggested the organization was an enemy of the government. But this summer President Donald Trump seemed to misunderstand the role played by Hezbollah in Lebanon's complex politics.

Both Jones's and Wilbon's statements came after politics and sports became even more enmeshed - if that's possible - following Vice President Mike Pence's decision to walk out of an Indianapolis Colts game on Sunday when dozens of San Francisco 49ers players took a knee during the national anthem. Jones and the Cowboys then stood and linked arms for the anthem. "That's nothing new as far as that being my wish on the way that I want the Cowboys to have".

Common wasn't the only one with an opinion about the things said by Jerry Jones.

"I'm really in practice apolitical". We're addressing the issue in part because he's been very active in the issue.
