October 09, 2017 - 11:19 am

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones issued a stark ultimatum to his players over the weekend, warning the athletes that any player who “sits out” the national anthem would not take the field, reports Fox News.

His comments make him the first NFL owner to publicly bar his players from “taking a knee” during the performance of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’ The outspoken owner issued the warning after being asked to comment on Vice President Pence’s decision to leave an NFL game on Sunday following some players decision to sit-out the anthem.
