The NFL has let many of their players get away with kneeling during the anthem and people are fed up. Jerry Jones threatens to sue the NFL if Commissioner Roger Goodell does not take action against the anthem kneelers.
Jerry Jones is sick and tired of the lack of leadership shown by Roger Goodell when it comes to the players making a spectacle of the National Anthem. Because of this Jerry Jones is ready to take on the league with a lawsuit.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has threatened to sue the National Football League if a contract extension for commissioner Roger Goodell is approved by the league’s compensation committee, sources told Outside the Lines.
A team owner and a team executive told Outside the Lines that Jones has hired David Boies, the famed New York lawyer who represented Vice President Al Gore in the deadlocked 2000 presidential election — and who led the NFL’s court case during a dispute over the 2011 collective bargaining agreement negotiations. Boies has previously represented Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, who now faces numerous sexual assault allegations.
The New York Times first reported the development on Wednesday.
From the beginning of the protests, Jerry Jones has made it very clear where he stands on the issue. It appears he has finally reached a boiling point and is prepared to take action.
