Only One Confirmed Eagles Player Was Set To Visit White House
Here’s the reason the White House canceled. One player is not a team visit.
They can hate President Trump, but the celebration was about the Eagles, and they spitefully blew their opportunity. This childish stunt engineered by Eagle’s management was foolish. It only hurts their cause. The Eagles and their management have disrespected their fans. No excuse. Politics should be separate from sports, but unfortunately, they’ve dug their own grave!
One more win for Trump, and the Eagles management and players look petty!

The Philadelphia Eagles’ White House contingent would apparently have been a party of one, as quarterback Nick Foles was the only player planning to attend the ceremony, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Monday fewer than 10 Eagles players were scheduled to appear at the White House with owner Jeffrey Lurie and head coach Doug Pederson before President Donald Trump canceled the event. More

Super Bowl champs acting like chumps. IMO what the #Eagles did was disrespectful. Looks like another year of #BoycottTheNFL and I’m not to happy with the #NBA either. >

Owner Jeffrey Lurie, no one cares about your political agenda.
You embarrassed yourself and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Way to go… https://t.co/Yqc5v5Qbuz
