Eagles' coach Pederson on White House: 'What you've heard is enough'

Eagles' coach Pederson on White House: 'What you've heard is enough'

Jenkins' message came a day after the White House and President Donald Trump held a Celebration of America event instead of honoring the Super Bowl winners from Philadelphia.

Curry, a former two-time league Most Valuable Player, said he and his teammates would likely repeat the stance they took past year should they successfully defend their National Basketball Association title. At least one specifically cited the president's criticism of players who kneel.

"We've had three devastating major hurricanes that hit our country within a month's time", said Trump.

To be fair, nobody crowded around Qualls' locker - he's a reserve defensive tackle jostling for a roster spot.

The Chicago Tribune suggested, satirically of course, that Mrs. Trump had been smuggled out of the White House to live with the Obamas.

There was at least one common theme - a united front.

"I'm exhausted of the narrative being about the anthem, about the White House or whatever", he said following a meeting in downtown Philadelphia with top public defenders from around the country on the issue of bail reform.

Among that number is Liverpool teenager Trent Alexander-Arnold, with the full-back, 19, likely to be handed a full debut tomorrow. England outpossessed Nigeria 59-41, with each team having 12 shots, four on target.

This tweet was posted after a segment aired on Fox insinuating the whole team had chosen to protest the anthem. Trump's petty response to getting curved (less than 10 Eagles players reportedly planned to attend) ended up being a joke anyway, and made the National Football League look even worse for their cowering to the Comrade In Chief.

Trump has manipulated the intentions of those who choose not to visit the White House and those who kneel during the national anthem.

"I was looking forward to going down, obviously", Pederson said Wednesday. And the beef between POTUS and the Eagles peaked Tuesday, when the White House said "the vast majority of the Eagles team chose to abandon their fans".

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins delivered a powerful response to the defending Super Bowl champions' being disinvited to the White House without saying a word. "It hasn't come up here, but I think I already have my mind made up".

During the season, the president referred to the protesting players as "sons of bitches" and suggested at a rally in Alabama before a mostly white audience that they be fired. On Monday, wide receiver Torrey Smith wrote on Twitter that "It's a cowardly act to cancel the celebration because the majority of the people don't want to see you".

For victorious sports teams these days, the confetti and champagne are apt to be accompanied by a politically fraught question: Are you going to the White House?

"There are a lot of people on the team that have plenty of different views".
