No Philadelphia Eagles Players Knelt During The Anthem In 2017 Season

No Philadelphia Eagles Players Knelt During The Anthem In 2017 Season

President Trump seemed to not know the words to "God Bless America", as he sang Tuesday at the White House after rescinding his victory ceremony invitation to Super Bowl champs the Philadelphia Eagles. One player knelt in the pre-season, but he ended up getting cut before the season started.

In April, Smith told NBC Charlotte the narrative of the players' protests during the national anthem has been lost and shifted for political purposes.

In Trump's statement and subsequent tweets, the President indicated that members of the team chose to refrain from going to the White House because of his comments on the NFL's national anthem policy. "It just seemed like the opportunity arose when the White House disinvited the team".

Petrilyak is a frequent attendee at NFL games and other sporting events, and he's seen the controversy over the national anthem become more and more visible.

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".

And as such, former White House photographer Pete Souza took the opportunity to troll Trump by posting a picture of his former boss, Barack Obama, yucking it up with New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski during their 2015 visit. Whoever wanted to attend should still have been able to attend.

"To me, going to the White House had nothing to do with the anthem", said Long.

The NFL Players' Association also hit out at Trump in a statement that read: "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".

Final fact: It is Trump and Trump alone who jumped in to take the most basic of our freedoms - the right to free speech and our right to protest - and twist it into a political debate to rally his base and attack all National Football League players, no matter how innocent.

Don't be late: "I will be there at 3:00 p.m. with the United States Marine Band and the United States Army Chorus to celebrate America", he said.

Eagles Center Jason Kelce said the team has been trying to stay focused on winning another Super Bowl. The ceremony, which had been scheduled for June 5, was abruptly called off in part because several players had said they wouldn't attend, according to a statement released by the White House.
