Super Bowl winning eagles soared high in their 44-33 win over the Patriots earlier this year. But at least three of them will not be attending the traditional White House visit for winners of the biggest game in US professional football.

Trump earlier this year said to the 32 team owners, “son of a b—h”, players who protest during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner.

Safety Malcolm Jenkins, defensive end Chris Long and receiver Torrey Smith have all said they will not attend. Jenkins said on a nationally televised new show, “I personally do not anticipate attending that.” He continued by saying, “I’m about, you know, creating positive change in the communities that I come from, whether it be Philadelphia, New Jersey, Ohio, Louisiana or this entire country.”

NCAA a Criminal Organization?

College Atheletes

Scribe: Samuel Otis

Email: samuel@thethinkering.com

Is there an American nonprofit corporation robbing collegiate students athletes? The NCCA was created in the middle of the 19th century and has existed since. The corporation intakes nearly $1 billion annually. In 2012 alone the NCAA surpluses more than $71. and the sole source of income are student athletes who are forbidden to have a job and do not get paid to play.

Pay these people dammit!

I know some jackass is reading this and saying to himself, “but, they get a free ride, scholarships and a ticket to a free education.” I those words echoed in your mind, then you probably were not talented enough to get an athletic scholarship. Poverty among players is not an uncommon situation.

Sports uniting Korea's after 67-years

Olympics

If North Korea and South Korea can come together despite Trumps punk ass, the so can we Americans.

“They only understand one thing,” Dumb Donald said on social media last September about North Korea. South Korea has proven that Trumps provocative talk does not work, at least with Koreans. The divisive rhetoric was charmingly for Americans. Neo Nazis are seeing a surge in popularity not seen before in the history of the country. While blacks and whites have never been more divided.

So, good for the Koreans for coming together after nearly 70 years to become allies by talking with each other and finding common ground first with the Olympic Games which have fared well and now are both enjoying post games success to the chagrin of the current US administration.
