Trump beat the NFL.
Never forget that.
He forced them to change their policy on kneeling nogs after drawing attention to it and destroying their ratings and ticket sales.
Then, after besting them, he reached out the olive branch. They swatted it away.
I predict the sport is basically dead.
President Donald Trump has cancelled the annual Super Bowl champions’ White House visit after most players from the winning team did not want to attend.
He said the Philadelphia Eagles players disagreed with his view “that they proudly stand for the National Anthem”.
But team members have not confirmed this is the reason they are boycotting.
Mr Trump has repeatedly criticised NFL players over the past two years who have knelt to protest against police brutality affecting African-Americans.
According to the Associated Press news agency, no Eagles player knelt during the anthem in 2017. The team has not addressed the White House issue directly, but one player, Malcolm Jenkins, said he wanted “to avoid being used as any kind of pawn”.
The NFL voted in May to make players on the pitch stand for the anthem.
Here is Trump’s thing.
The Philadelphia Eagles Football Team was invited to the White House. Unfortunately, only a small number of players decided to come, and we canceled the event. Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling. Sorry!

Staying in the locker room was some kind of trick maneuver by the NFL, to try and make peace with the white working class that makes up the majority of their fandom and the rapid niggerballers themselves.
But Trump is going to hit them there too.
He knew they would refuse the invite when he invited them, which is why he did it – to bring the issue back into the headlines.
The NFL controversy was probably the most important thing to happen in 2017.
It forced all of America to ask: “well, are black people actually Americans? If they are not, then what are they doing here? Do they not have their own entire continent where they can live without feeling as though they are oppressed by whites?”
Trump trolled the shit out of these people and he won big.
I want to see more of this and less John Boltonism.
He also needs to play up the Roseanne thing bigger. There is so much potential there.
