    not a lawyer. But, I'm pretty sure any provisions in a contract that are contrary to labor laws aren't enforceable.

    Telling people they may not protest while on the job doesn't violate labor laws. Now, if he tried to say they couldn't off the job, that might be different.

    I don't like Jones, but I am with him on this. He not only allowed one, he fully participated. He is the only owner to take a knee with his players. Now, it's time for football.

    Yeah, that's what I'm saying. The politics of this though are going to be interesting; that is to say "freedom of speech".

    except, he's just running his mouth. He has no power to force a new rule into place just because he says so. And the fact that he previously sided with the players likely creates legal impediments to him changing his mind and deciding they can't protest.

    Did it say in the article he would bench them WITHOUT pay? If he does that the players union would certainly object. The collective bargaining agreement does not allow him to do that.
