Ex-Philadelphia Eagles player defends former team: Trump made a poor decision

Ex-Philadelphia Eagles player defends former team: Trump made a poor decision

And that's what I think has been happening up until this point.

"It will be nice when we can just get back to normal in three years", Kerr said. On Tuesday, Trump had disinvited the Eagles after the size of their contingent shrank to around a dozen players, replacing it with a "Celebration of America" that featured military bands. Said no matter who wins this series neither team will go. "The way we handled things a year ago. we'll stay consistent with that". But it's good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do.

Kerr said it's important to be clear upon the players reasons for kneeling.

Unlike some of their football colleagues, Eagles players did not kneel during the playing of the national anthem prior to their games this season. "A similar (G) oogle search will show you how many great things the players on this team are doing and continue to do on a daily basis". In an earlier post, he said the President was spreading "the false narrative that players are anti-military". "They're protesting police brutality and racial inequality".

"No, I'm not going to the White House".

"People are busy during the off season during this time", he said.

But according to the Philadelphia-area reporters who attended the event, there were not numerous Eagles fans that the White House accused the team of abandoning in attendance at the White House event held for their benefit. "Because I think the championship - winning a Super Bowl or winning a Stanley Cup or winning a World Series or winning an NBA championship or national championship - is way bigger than getting invited to the White House, especially with him in there, in my opinion".

James also shook his head at the Women's National Basketball Association champions not being invited previous year.

In an interview with ESPN.com's Tim McManus, Jenkins explained the motivation for his silent press conference: To focus on the issues and not President Donald Trump. Trump cited low Eagles turnout and the new NFL policy that requires players to stand on the field during the national anthem but also gives them a choice to stay in the locker room. "Before the anthem even started, players were involved in these types of social justice issues", Jenkins said.

Typically, tickets to White House celebrations for sports champions are highly coveted commodities.
