The Philadelphia Eagles released a statement.  It doesn’t recognize the cancellation of their Washington White House visit but it refers to those who have supported them and have celebrated their Super Bowl win.

 

Updated 9:30pm 6-4-18

The Mayor of Philadelphia reacts to the Eagles cancelled white house visit.  See statement below:

“The Eagles call the birthplace of our democracy home, so it’s no surprise that this team embodies everything that makes our country and our city great. Their athletic accomplishments on the field led to an historic victory this year. Fans all across the country rallied behind them because we like to root for the underdog and we feel joy when we see the underdogs finally win. I’m equally proud of the Eagles’ activism off the field. These are players who stand up for the causes they believe in and who contribute in meaningful ways to their community. They represent the diversity of our nation—a nation in which we are free to express our opinions.

“Disinviting them from the White House only proves that our President is not a true patriot, but a fragile egomaniac obsessed with crowd size and afraid of the embarrassment of throwing a party to which no one wants to attend.

“City Hall is always open for a celebration.”

 Still awaiting a response from the Eagles franchise and the NFL.

–END–

With less than a day before the NFL Super Bowl Champs travel to Washington to meet with President Donald Trump calls off the visit.  It’s due to the dispute over NFL players and personnel and why they should stand instead of kneeling during the playing of the national anthem.  Many of the players had decided not to attend prior to this release but a small group was going to Washington to represent the franchise.

In a statement released late today by the White House says ”the Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow.  They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.  The Eagles wanted to send a smaller delegation, but the 1,000 fans planning to attend the event deserve better. These fans are still invited to the White House to be part of a different type of ceremony—one that will honor 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.”

We have been awaiting a response from the Eagles and/or the NFL but at the time of the report they have not released a statement.
