Kevin Durant is glad Golden State won't be visiting the White House

Kevin Durant is glad Golden State won't be visiting the White House”

President Donald Trump's remarks in Huntsville regarding NFL players protesting during the national anthem, have caused a polarizing debate across the country, as well as here in the Tennessee Valley.

The day had started with the scenes at Wembley, where those who did not kneel stood arm-in-arm on the sidelines - including Jags and Fulham owner Shad Khan, who donated one million USA dollars to Trump's presidential campaign. He pathetically hopes to earn the admiration or brotherhood of those whom he admires but can not match in deed or character.

"The NFL doesn't follow their own rules. We're going to have some scary times in sports if we don't figure a way out to come together and to address this stuff".

Trump later tweeted: "Please to inform that the Champion Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League will be joining me at the White House for Ceremony". Police chiefs and police unions around the country deplore his incitement to rough up suspects.

Pointing to the ongoing controversy that President Donald Trump reignited over the weekend when he criticized football players who protest racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem, Boyer said that "it's frustrating" and "kind of sad" that politics have seeped into sports.

Instead, he spurred dozens of players throughout the league to openly defy his toothless commands, and hundreds more to lock arms with one another in a show of unity.

Commissioner Roger Goodell, who has taken heat for Kaepernick's struggle to find a team, quickly condemned Trump's comments.

Linebacker Brandon Marshall, who hands out winter coats in Denver alongside his mother as part of his charity work, said the Broncos gathered Saturday night to talk about their reaction. "Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the National Football League, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities". The code calls on all present to stand at attention while the anthem is played.

One Steelers player, offensive lineman and Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva, stood at the end of the tunnel during the playing of the anthem before the game in Chicago. What implications will this have on the locker rooms in terms of divisiveness?

NFL Spokesman Brian McCarthy, in August 2016, wrote in a statement, per NBC Sports, that "Players are encouraged but not required to stand during the playing of the National Anthem". Trump called for a boycott of games.

More than 200 players, including several coaches and owners protested the anthem over the weekend in some form.

"I am not fooled by any of it", he said of the owners' gestures. "But the fact that the Internet exists and there's all this social media and news spreads so fast, is actually a really wonderful thing for us and it helps us have a voice".

"And they're using the anthem and the flag as the time to do that, which I don't agree with because the anthem and the flag represent 300 million people". We support our players and we all understand what's going on and we respect the flag and all the above. Trump then heard about the video, and preemptively disinvited the team via Twitter. He has shown, since the beginning, his dehumanized nature.

"I'm not sure how those two things would be combined", she said. If we want to bring this back around to Nazis again, Jesse Owens became famous for winning four gold medals during the 1936 Berlin Olympics, rubbing Adolf Hitler's nose in his failure on his own home turf. There's not any person that I met that I don't love.
