Thoughts?

Can Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Bench a ‘Disrespectful’ Player?
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones took the NFL's battle over the national anthem to a new level this week when he suggested that players who are "disrespectful" to the U.S. flag shouldn't be allowed to play.

But can Jones bench a player for such a reason?

The short answer, according to experts, is that Jones ─ arguably the most powerful owner in the world's richest sport ─ can do what he wants, at least in the short term. But he'd probably thrust himself into a high-profile legal fight that may ending up costing him, and the NFL.

Wow. Quite a turnaround.

Clearly the pressure is on... but from whom?
Fans, sponsors, networks? All of the above?
