ESPN.

The ESPN personality says he doesn't care if people don't like him using that word.

ESPN's Michael Wilbon discussed some NFL owners restricting their players from protesting during the national anthem before games.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had said if any of his players "disrespect" the flag, there will be consequences. They'll be benched.

Wilbon said a word comes to mind when he hears owners say stuff like this.

Wilbon says he doesn't care if people are uncomfortable with him saying that.

"The players are here to serve me and they will do what I want, no matter how much I pay them, they are not equal to me."
