Kawakami What the NBA continues to get right and the NFL has gotten so incredibly wrong about the anthem and Trump

Coach Doug Pederson had met with the team recently to gauge what the feeling around the locker room might be. Trump's feud with NFL players over some's decision to not stand for the national anthem as a form of protest became a cultural subplot of the 2017 season.

In other words, the vast majority of the Eagles team chose to abandon their fans.

A "Celebration of America" replaced a visit by the Eagles.

Jenkins issued a lengthy statement on Twitter on Tuesday after the White House disinvited the Eagles from an event originally meant to honor the Super Bowl champions after the Eagles reportedly chose to send only a small contingent of players. "These fans are still invited to the White House to be part of a different type of ceremony - one that will honour 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". "But I think more importantly, as Americans, and especially people in Philadelphia, we shouldn't let that news take away from what that unbelievable team did to sacrifice throughout each and every Sunday". None of the Eagles players knelt during the anthem at any point last season. They are not planning to visit the White House if they can close out the series and win their second straight National Basketball Association title.

He then expressed the "irony" about the Eagles being uninvited to the White House.

The White House sent an email to all staff members inviting them to come to the event that morning. Unfortunately, there were a bunch of people online who did not care.

On Wednesday, the Eagles safety didn't speak to reporters.

Sloane Stephens advanced too, but the 10th-seeded American had a much more hard time beating Italy's Camila Giorgi 4-6 6-1 8-6. Italian 18th seed Fabio Fognini also came through a five-setter to oust Britain's Kyle Edmund, the 16th seed.

In a statement released Tuesday, the White House cited "a lack of good faith" by the Eagles during discussions about the scheduled event, but Brewer cited the example of star quarterback Tom Brady, skipping the New England Patriots White House visit for non-political reasons.

Trump did not mention the Eagles during the event. "And instead we just have these military sing-a-longs at the White House to show how patriotic we are, even though we don't know the words".

"The president's not telling the Philadelphia Eagles or the National Football League or any of us what to wear, what to think, how to spend your charitable time, what to do in the off-season", said Conway.

Curry went on to explain that he believes every team in the National Basketball Association deserves the opportunity to make the decision to visit Trump or not should it win a championship while he remains in office.
