    Actually Iíve been looking into the Berkeley fights, and I think I underestimated the organizational structure of some of these black bloc/anarchist/leftist fringe groups. I still believe theyíre pulled out to draw false equivalence to much more organized, violent, and insidious organizations, especially in Charlottesville, but there is definitely more structure to ďantifaĒ groups than I realized.

It is an outrage and there are those of us who will never bend to the point of being okay with this kind of conduct. I am actually glad to see the countrys leader take a position to try to preserve this show of respect for the country.

    I understand you think it's very bad neigh terrible that they kneel, but...

    a) Non of the eagles did, so that should not be an issue
    b) You always stand by the Law and they wouldn't have broken any, not even a contractual one, had they done so

    So again the only reason for cancelling the event (that is a tradition) is that president Trump's ego cannot handle the fact that some of the players would rather not attend and shake his hand...

    I don't think its bad that they kneel its when they choose to kneel. it's a slap in the face. And you are mixing two circumstances together. There is the issue of the National Anthem that occurred during the season and Trumps response by saying they should be dismissed. This entailed every team and owner. Then there's the instance of the Eagles protesting an appearance to the White House after winning the Championship and Trump canceling their appearance. Both instances had players protesting something.

    Can’t believe this board is feeling bad for Philly. Try to concentrate on such tings as the way they cheered when Michael Irvin was laying on their turf with nearly a broken neck.

    “The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow. They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.

    “The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better. These fans are still invited to the White House to be part of a different type of ceremony — one that will honor our great country, pay tribute to the heroes who fight to protect it, and loudly and proudly play the National Anthem. I will be there at 3:00 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America.”

    Trump's propaganda network tried showing players praying before anthem as proof they did.

    That has nothing to do with this. There were many players on the team that refused to go to the White House. They were thumbing their nose at the President and he pulled the plug on the visit.

    I’m starting to think you and Trump have the same thought process, do you have a current photo? I hope you’re not turning orange.
    A couple (2 as far as I know) eagle players said they wouldn’t go, so even though no eagle knelt Trump spun it to be about lack of respect to the flag and not about his tantrums.
    And now you’re trying to spin it to be about the eagles when no one on this board gives a shit about them, but do feel annoyed by the actions of the president.
