Since the late 1970s, the Dallas Cowboys have been known as Americas Team. In light of recent Trump White House statements, however, Dallas might want to consider handing that title over to the Philadelphia Eagles.
"The Philadelphia Eagles are unable to come to the White House with their full team to be celebrated tomorrow, the White House said in an eleventh-hour statement issued on Monday after learning that only two or three players, owner Jeff Lurie, and mascot Swoop were able (or willing) to meet President Donald Trump, as has become customary for championship teams in the U.S. 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."

LOLOLOLOLOL Breath LOLOLOLOLOL!
What does Maggie know about football?
Maybe AmeriKa’s team. Yeah, another self-appointed “America’s team”..
RE: And Trump’s feud with them proves it.
Who started this so-called “feud”? Trump or the majority of the team?
Blue America doesnt pay for football tickets. The only way they show up at an NFL game is if someone gives them a free suite ticket.
Were I a “journalist”, I would refuse to play a moron just to collect a paycheck. . . .
LOL imagine if the Eagles had tried that stunt with Barack Obama..how NBC would be reacting..they would be demanding a boycott of the team..yeah, invite 3 players and they actually thought that President Trump would go for that
More like they’re a team consumed with SJW’s
Worst fans in the NFL and now they are America’s Team. #TDS
“tried that stunt with Barack Obama........they would be demanding a boycott of the team”
I respectfully disagree. They would not be reporting on it at all. Total blackout. See ‘em do it many times.
The downside of a bubble is that it may be sealed, and eventually your brain will suffer the consequences of oxygen depravation, as NBC has demonstrated.
I’m sure they still think Barbra Streisand is still America’s singer.
America’s team? Depends on who you ask!!
Tough competition: Seahoggs, SF Homos, and now the Beagles.

Probably does not know much about football.
I wonder what color the sky is on Maggie’s planet?
We will all see how this plays out. Decisions always bring consequence. I don’t think this is going to work out well for the Eagles. Certainly they aren’t anywhere close to being a favorite team, most hated maybe.
They’re team SJWs! Hahaha America’s team.
