The latest musician to join in on the issue is Common, who claimed Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had a "slave owner mentality" after he threatened to bench any player who protested during the anthem, a new TMZ video shows.

Jones sought to ensure players also saw the bigger picture regarding the business side of the situation, including concerns over TV ratings and sponsors, the source said. "If there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play", Jones told assembled reporters.

Jones' comments occurred in response to Vice President Mike Pence abruptly leaving the Sunday game between the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco after more than 20 49ers knelt during the national anthem.

Turkey tries different measures to free Crimean Tatars jailed by Russia - Erdogan
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is continuing a visit to Serbia with a visit to Sandzak, a mainly Muslim-populated region. Turkey backed Bosnian Muslims in the 1990s war that pitted them against the Christian Orthodox Serbs and Catholic Croats.

Local 100 of the United Labor Unions filed a charge with the National Labor Relations Board in Fort Worth on Tuesday, saying that Jones has violated the National Labor Relations Act with his threats. Some requirements are that it must be played before every National Football League game, all players must be on the sidelines during the anthem and they should all face the flag with helmets in their left hand.

Next week, the NFL owners will discuss whether to change the written guidelines and require players to stand for the national anthem.

Jones said on Sunday: "There is no room here if it comes between looking non-supportive of our players and of each other or creating the impression that you're disrespecting the flag, we will be non-supportive of each other. Goes against everything he told us in Arizona", one player anonymously told ESPN, referring to Jones kneeling with the team before their game against the Cardinals, and then standing and linking arms with them for the playing of the anthem.

Spotify replacing Xbox One's Groove Music Pass
Now Groove Music Pass is shutting down, although its Groove Music app lives on as a way for people to play their owned tracks. Microsoft has announced that it'll be discontinuing Music Pass support in Groove and music purchase in the Windows Store.

Rathke said there is no distinction between benching a player for a game or firing him outright by releasing him.

"We as a team are very much on the page together", Jones said. "We come in every day to work and our focus is on practice and trying to win ballgames".

President Donald Trump, however, tweeted his admiration for Jones's stance and encouragement of his players to do the same. "I like that YG song".
