President Donald Trump has made an announcement via Twitter about the upcoming celebration to take place in the absence of the Philadelphia Eagles, the winner of Super Bowl 52. The Eagles were scheduled for a visit to celebrate their championship over the fledgling New England Patriots when those plans were canceled due to what looks to be a disagreement between several players and the President. The disagreement is likely related to issues involving the National Anthem and the patriotic approach that President Trump has in which he would like everyone to stand for the National Anthem. On the contrary, there’s a handful of NFL athletes who use that time to show their protest, which means they are protesting during working hours and using their entertainment platform to send their own message, thus abusing their platform while ruining the product they’re selling to customers. Their product being the sport of football and the entertainment value it brings to fans.
Trump announced that someone else will be attending the White House in celebration. Those invited will enjoy a day celebrating America and the National Anthem. Trump posted on Twitter that numerous championship teams were invited and made their appearance and most likely had a very fun day taking a tour of the White House and chatting with the President of the United States. Any team who is invited should always attend because it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to be honored at the White House for the championship they were lucky to win. Regardless of who the President is, every athlete should always accept the invite to be welcomed, honored, and praised for their accomplishments. Any athlete who dislikes or disagrees with the President could also use that invitation as a means to begin a conversation with the President on the topics they feel differently about. Our famous football players don’t run from adversary on the field, so they shouldn’t run from the President either.
ESPN talked more about the new party they’re having at the White House:
“President Donald Trump announced a contingency plan after he canceled plans to honor the Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl victory.
The Eagles were supposed to attend a ceremony at the White House on Tuesday, but Trump nixed those plans at the 11th hour, and will instead host “A Celebration of America” featuring military bands and the playing of the national anthem.
In his reasoning for canceling the Eagles visit, Trump said that the team disagrees “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem.”
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, fewer than 10 players planned to attend the White House celebration.
The NFL Players Association said they were “disappointed” in the decision.
“Our union is disappointed in the decision by the White House to disinvite players from the Philadelphia Eagles from being recognized and celebrated by all Americans for their accomplishment. This decision by the White House has led to the cancellation of several player-led community service events for young people in the Washington, DC area,” the union said in a statement. “NFL players love their country, support our troops, give back to their communities and strive to make America a better place.”
“We will proudly be playing the National Anthem and other wonderful music celebrating our Country today at 3 P.M., The White House, with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus. Honoring America! NFL, no escaping to Locker Rooms!,” Trump said in a tweet on Tuesday.
“The Eagles did not mention the president on the canceled event in a statement, instead saying in part, “We are truly grateful for all of the support we have received and we are looking forward to continuing our preparations for the 2018 season.”
Trump continued his tirade about the NFL and its players even after the league adopted a policy for the national anthem.
Players can now choose to stay in the locker room during the anthem or join personnel on the sidelines. Those who stand on the sideline will be required to stand or face punishment from the league.”
Hopefully, there is some sort of misunderstanding. The Philadelphia Eagles were one of the few teams who didn’t really seem to care about the “take a knee” movement. There might have been a few players who disgraced the field and the flag, but for the most part the Eagles have been one of the most classy teams in the NFL. In fact, there was not a single Eagles player taking a knee during the Super Bowl, so that speaks volumes of their respect for the flag, fans, and the league in general. Keep that in mind, because the Eagles should be in the same level of talks as people like Colin Kaepernick who became a poster child for men being on their knees.
What should the Eagles do next? Should the plan another trip? Should the President and the Eagles sit down and talk about their issues and figure this out?

Patriots Former Tight End Martellus Bennett Just Made Sickening Allegation About Trump
He can’t be serious with these claims.
The most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by Breitbart.
Former Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett went on the attack Wednesday, accusing President Trump of “attacking black culture” with his criticism of NFL player protests during the national anthem.
Speaking to Bleacher Report, the former NFL player slammed Trump for his criticism of the protests and claimed that Trump’s attacks are just a way to tear down black role models.
“It’s the easiest way for him to attack the culture of black people,” the Super Bowl 51 champion said. “He sees the black athlete as someone that black people look up to. So he thinks you can attack black culture by attacking black NFL players.”
Bennett also implied that he thinks Trump’s voters are racially motivated. “Also, attacking black players helps him with his base,” he said.
Or, he pontificated, “maybe there’s no rhyme or reason. Maybe he’s just an asshole.”
Bennett has made his feelings about Trump known before. Last year he noted that he would not visit the Trump White House to celebrate his 2016 Super Bowl win, as a member of the New England Patriots.
He also took to Twitter to slam singer Kanye West for saying nice things about Trump. “So Kanye didn’t take the time to vote. And now he holding on to Trump’s coattail like Peter Pettigrew to Lord Voldemort. Kanye Pettigrew,” Bennett tweeted (then deleted) in December of 2016.
NFL Team Announces They Will Go Beyond Fines When Penalizing Players Who Kneel For Anthem
They’re not gonna like this!!
At least one NFL team has come to the conclusion that their money-losing race-baiting nonsense kneelers who ruin entertainment by abusing their platform to protest during work hours could be punished by suspending the players who engage in such pathetic behavior. I’m talking about the players who take a knee to protest and the Miami Dolphins are about to start punishing people for not having “Proper Anthem Conduct!” After a horrid 6-10 season last year, the Dolphins probably thought it was the least they could to do bring back fans who boycotted the NFL after a wave of activist millionaires started taking a knee. The only time “taking a knee” ever meant anything was when Tonya Harding allegedly had someone take Nancy Kerrigan’s knee back in 1994.
The Dolphins new policy suggests that any player who protests on the field during the national anthem might face a suspension of up to four games. That’s quite a few games lost for being a social justice warrior. Hopefully, the players who face this suspension are also losing their paycheck for those weeks.
This is quite an improvement for the NFL as teams with protesting players should always suspend them. It’s not their personal time, nor their platform to protest on. These players are at work and protesting during work hours should always be punishable by the boss. If any of us protested at work, then we would probably be disciplined too, especially if it made our customers turn their backs. Why should it be any different for football players?
“Miami Dolphins players who protest on the field during the national anthem could be suspended for up to four games under a team policy issued this week.
The “Proper Anthem Conduct” section is just one sentence in a nine-page discipline document provided to The Associated Press by a person familiar with the policy who insisted on anonymity because the document is not public. It classifies anthem protests under a large list of “conduct detrimental to the club,” all of which could lead to a paid or unpaid suspension, a fine or both.
Miami’s anthem policy comes after the NFL decided in May that teams would be fined if players didn’t stand during “The Star-Spangled Banner” while on the field. The league left it up to teams on how to punish players. None of the team policies have been made public.
The NFL rule forbids players from sitting or taking a knee if they are on the field or sidelines during the national anthem, but allows them to stay in the locker room if they wish. The new league rules were challenged this month in a grievance by the players union.”
The ‘take a knee’ nonsense dates back to when Colin Kaepernick was protesting and we all see how that turned out. He’s no longer in the league and at this point, there’s no chance for him to come back. He keeps getting older and likely deteriorating. See what social justice did to him? It cost him his career. What does he do now? Hopefully, he saved some of the money he made while playing, that way he can survive, but he could have been earning millions more for him to spend, donate, or invest. If he’s broke, then oh well. Serves him right for dissing the American flag like that.
When people abuse their platform in entertainment, then fans are often turned off by it. We watch sports, television programs, and movies as a form of entertainment and escapism. We want to be immersed into a story, drama, and something that’s simply there to keep us entertained for an hour or two. As soon as people start protesting during sports, then some people are like “no thanks” and immediately shut it down.
People don’t like protesters and they don’t like their entertainment ruined. What happens when you combine the two? It’s like mixing bleach and ammonia. It’s a very bad idea and it could kill their careers.
We have a few months until the regular season begins for the NFL. That means a lot of teams have plenty of time to get their punishments ready for the disrespectful players.
