The discussion regarding players protesting during the national anthem continues, with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones issuing a warning to his players following the team's loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Jerry Jones, center, kneels along with his players before the playing of the national anthem in Week 3.

It is a source of enormous pride that some of the best conversations about these issues have taken place in our locker rooms in a respectful, civil and thoughtful way that should serve as a model for how all of us can communicate with each other.

The entire Dallas Cowboys team took a knee last month before the national anthem at their game Vs the Arizona Cardinals. So however he wants to do it - he felt that not standing for the flag is disrespectful.

Jones referenced Pence's actions in his comments.

Sanders said that while Trump's words are vague, he's not trying to sow confusion. When asked again what he meant, Trump said only: "You'll find out".

However, defensive linemen David Irving and Damontre Moore raised their fist following the anthem Sunday. "We made our expression". I'm very supportive of the team, but under no circumstances, under no circumstances, will the Dallas Cowboys, I don't care what happens, under no circumstances as an organization or as players and coaches, not support and stand and recognize and honor the flag.

George Atallah, assistant executive director of external affairs at the NFL Players Association, tweeted a statement from the union on players' constitutional rights Sunday night.

Jones is one of seven National Football League owners who donated to Trump's inaugural committee. Jones said Trump indicated the NFL should enforce a rule that players must stand for the national anthem.

NFL players who have demonstrated during the national anthem have said they are not disrespecting the flag, military or the anthem itself.

"We can not in anyway give the implication that we tolerate disrespecting the flag", Jones told reporters. When the anthem was performed, they stood arm-in-arm with the players. "Respecting the flag is first".
