    Panthers safety Eric Reid’s visible beef with Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins in today’s game was indeed for the expected reasons. After Philly collapsed and Carolina took the 21-17 victory, Reid was at first hesitant to explain why he exchanged words with Jenkins during the pregame coin toss, but then he kind of explained it anyway.

    FULL TITLE: Two Miami Dolphins wide receivers become first players of 2018 season to take the knee during national anthem, just hours after Trump blamed the sport's poor TV ratings on the ongoing protest President Donald Trump is slamming the National Football League for low ratings and blaming players for protesting during the national anthem as two Miami Dolphins players took to the knee Sunday during 'The Star Spangled Banner' as football season began in earnest. 'Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad last year comparison. Viewership declined 13%, the lowest in over a...

    The only protest during the national anthem Thursday night was half a protest. Eagles defensive end Michael Bennett, who stayed in the locker room for the anthem during the preseason, walked in front of the bench during most of Boyz II Men’s rendition. Bennett then took a seat near the end of the song, according to Judy Battista of NFL Media. All the Eagles were on the field, even safety Malcolm Jenkins.

    The Eagles have flown past Michael Jackson’s Thriller to take the record for the best-selling album of all time. Recording Industry Association of America confirmed to the Associated Press on Monday that the band’s 1976 compilation album, Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975), has been certified 38x platinum, which means sales and streams of the album have reached 38 million copies. That officially puts it ahead of Thriller, which has been certified 33x platinum. That’s not even the limit of the Eagles’ record-selling dominance. In addition to grabbing the No. 1 spot, the band also has the third-best-selling album of all time:...

    PHILADELPHIA - Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins resumed his protest against social injustice during the playing of the national anthem prior to Thursday night's preseason opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Defensive end Chris Long put his arm around Jenkins in a sign of support, as he did for much of last season. Defensive back De'Vante Bausby also raised a fist. Defensive end Michael Bennett appeared on the field during the playing of the anthem and walked behind his teammates, most of whom were lined up along the sideline.

    PHILADELPHIA -- Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins issued a strong response to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones on Friday, referring to him as a "bully" for requiring his players to stand for the national anthem, while urging owners around the league -- including Eagles Chairman and CEO Jeffrey Lurie -- to speak up in support of the players on this issue. "Jeffrey has been very supportive of us from the beginning. I don't see Jeffrey as a bully like Jerry Jones is. Lucky for me, I don't play for the Cowboys. Nor would I want to. I think it's unfortunate that...
  • 'Hotel California' and America's decomposing values; Why The Eagle's Hit Song was Prophetic

    American Thinker ^ | 06/28/2018 | Tim Jones
    "Hotel California," the signature song by the Eagles and probably their most popular, is a stinging critique and indictment of the American dream and the dominant consumer culture. There's a certain irony in that, since the band hit super-stardom early in their career in the seventies and quickly succeeded in reaching the ultimate American dream of becoming rich and famous. Like most rock bands, they emerged out of the sixties rebelling against the blandness and conformity of previous generations, but whether the band realized it or not, Hotel California is really a conservative song. It paints a picture of a...

    Since the late 1970s, the Dallas Cowboys have been known as “America’s 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...

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Eagles players and officials made individual decisions to not go to the White House for a scheduled celebration of their Super Bowl title, leaving two players actually planning to make the trip to Washington before the visit was canceled by President Donald Trump, according to players and a person familiar with the arrangements. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday because of the sensitivity of the issues. All-Pro center Jason Kelce said players filled out forms anonymously indicating whether they wanted to go to the White House, not make the trip or go to Washington and...

    When people think of the liberal venom coming from MSNBC, many would single out Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow or Lawrence O’Donnell. But the 9am hour has quietly become another home on the network for angry rants. On Wednesday, guests compared Donald Trump to a dictator and somehow linked Trump’s White House speech on Tuesday to the assassination of Robert Kennedy. Talking about Trump’s patriotism event in the wake of cancelling the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles' appearance at the White House, New York Times columnist Bret Stephens linked: “This reminds me of certain regimes around the world. The Maduro regime...

    Eagles’ safety Malcolm Jenkins had a message to deliver Wednesday after President Trump abruptly canceled the Super Bowl champions’ visit to the White House on Tuesday. But instead of reading a statement or taking reporters’ questions after practice, Jenkins, an outspoken civil right activist and member of the Players Coalition, held up a series of signs and shook his head in silence. Reporters kept volleying questions at him anyway. Jenkins kept reaching for the next cue card. He held up one sign that read, “YOU AREN’T LISTENING” twice during the two-minute encounter.

    LevinTV host Mark Levin slammed the Philadelphia Eagles Tuesday night on his radio show, calling their handling of the team’s White House visit a “complete setup.” According to a report from Politico, the White House was informed last week that 81 players were planning to attend the event. But on Monday, the Eagles organization notified the White House that only a handful of players and team representatives would attend. Levin went on a tirade against the Eagles for attempting to “sabotage” the president. Listen:

The mayor made the comments on CBSN on Tuesday morning after the White House disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles from a celebration for the team's Super Bowl victory. "Cities need to stand up in this country, and many mayors have stood up in this country against this tyrant," Kenney said.

Critics say the package makes it appear as if the Eagles are protesting during the national anthem — with Eagles tight end Zach Ertz calling the piece “propaganda.”
