    No finer plan has ever been laid out to destroy the American political election system.

    May still be better than the electoral college, though.

    Several of Trumps minions on twitter are now spreading the lie that the Eagles players kneeled during the national anthem and stayed in the locker room during it once as well. Then ranting about how the Eagles dont deserve to go to the white house.

    It pisses me off so bad that people will knowingly or even unknowingly spread lies in an attempt to attack people's character. It also pisses me off how so many people will accept these lies without questioning it.

    One guy tweeted a photo of Peters kneeling (during practice) and Torrey Smith kneeling (during a game).

    Also a photo of Ron Brook, I think, of a preseason game.

    Ron Brooks was the prior year. No Eagles player kneeled last year, verified fact.

    According to the Washington Post, Kellyanne Conway is a “die-hard” Eagles fan. :laugh:

    I for one couldn't be happier that the Eagles Super Bowl win won't be tainted by that asshat.

    You haven't been reading this thread or any news outlet if you're asking who cares.

    Not that it matters but I think Jenkins and some other guys like raised their fist or something. Really, I don't understand the hub-bub in all this. It truly is bizarre to me that someone would get upset that another person knelt during the National Anthem. I have military in my family and a lot of my friends were in the military. Their position seems to be the most logical: I wouldn't do it but I fought for this country to give them the right to do it.

    That being said, I also don't understand the refusal to go to the White House. I am no fan of Trump but I would not pass up an opportunity to go to the White House for something like this. I don't fault the players at all for not going, I just don't quite get it. Trump's response, however, is incredibly petulant and inappropriate and what is even more confusing is that his supporters seem to LOVE the response, which is just sad.

    Such a pointless topic to complain about.

    This is just so, so, so, wrong. Good for Ertz and Long for calling out Fox News.

    Fox news is the definition of propaganda, and the sad thing is they constantly say they are the only place to get fair and balanced news. I also find it super ironic that a channel full of devout christians would use someone praying to twist the narrative and spread lies. Just downright shameful.

    thank god i only watch the actual games and not this side show stuff. i turn off the pre post and half time stuff. most of it has little to do with the game and is just as bad as watching the news channels. all of them. that and the constant blabing about the next great show/event takes away from the actual game itself. like the networks that complain about the games taking too long but demand to have tv timeouts and 5 min. commercial breaks. sports on tv and as an escape from the drudgery and drama of everyday life has become a joke and is more about the sideshow than the actual games themselves.

    The players are wrong for not wanting to go to a place they don't want to go and the owner isn't making them?

    Not sure what is wrong about that.

    Never understood why the champions of all major leagues visit the white house anyway. Whats the correlation here? If I won a championship, I wouldn't go regardless of who the president is. Trump loves this stuff, he loves when everyone gets their panties in a bunch and everyone is just adding feul to that. Who cares!

    Normally I would agree with you - if it was wrong for Tim Thomas to not want to visit Obama, then it's wrong for the Eagles not to want to visit Trump. However, the difference is that Trump has publicly attacked the NFL and it's players and has injected politics into the whole thing. Once that happens, then all normality regarding this is gone.

    There is very clearly one that is wrong, and only one. The one infringing on freedom.
