Pederson: Eagles moving on from White House saga

Come Tuesday, a bunch of so-called "Eagles fans" descended on the White House lawn for a replacement event that celebrated the military and the country. "The Philadelphia Eagles do not kneel".

Eagles players didn't kneel during the national anthem in the 2017 season.

"Instead the decision was made to lie and paint the picture that these players are anti-America, anti-flag and anti-military". "I said I wasn't going to the White House a long time ago", said Chris Long during an interview on Wednesday.

Trump tweeted it was falsely reported she faced "near death", had a "facelift", left the White House, or was abused by the president, and blamed "the Fake News Media" of being "unfair" and "so vicious" to the first lady after her recovery from surgery to treat a benign kidney condition.

"Sports are not a distraction from politics - they are politics by a different means", said University of Southern California sociologist Ben Carrington.

"It's an important conversation, but you can't control what other people try to do, or try to control the narrative or things like that", Curry said.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said that last week the Secret Service received several dozen names of prospective attendees for clearance, but then Friday the Eagles told the White House that very few people would be coming.

Trump staged a political event on the White House South Lawn in place of a Super Bowl party for the Eagles, insisting on the need for Americans to stand up for the anthem to honor those who have sacrificed their lives for the nation. "It's over. What you've seen and what you've heard is enough", he said.

A delegation was supposed to be in Washington on Tuesday, but Trump publicly rescinded the invitation Monday night, claiming the team didn't show proper respect for the country during the playing of the Star-Spangled Banner last season.

Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments past year and Trump's subsequent revoking of the Warriors' invitation. "Before the anthem even started, players were involved in these types of social justice issues", Jenkins said. I think that's important. Kelce talked at length about how the National Football League is a melting pot of people with different backgrounds and opinions who work together as a team.

Before Trump took office, one of the biggest fusses to emerge from a White House victory celebration was the great flip-flop incident of 2005, when the Northwestern University women's lacrosse championship team wore the sandals to meet President George W. Bush.
