Standing for the flag 41 Protesting the flag 33 #NeverTrump hardest hit

As the city of Philadel­phia cel­e­brate their cham­pi­onship (and upcom­ing quar­ter­back con­tro­versy) and Patri­ots fans ques­tion the bench­ing of Mal­colm But­ler and con­tinue to whine about the Garop­polo trade in the wake of Super­bowl 52 there is one aspect of the game that nobody is talk­ing about, at least not yet.

While the Patri­ots have been iden­ti­fied with the Pres­i­dent in the past it’s worth not­ing that after his speech in Alabama Tom Brady dis­tanced him­self from Pres­i­dent Trump and 17 mem­bers of the New Eng­land Patri­ots took a knee to the boos of the fans in Foxborough.

con­trari­wise not only did no mem­ber of the Philadel­phia Eagles take a knee that week Philly was one of only seven team that didn’t have a sin­gle player protest dur­ing the National Anthem all season.

If you’re plan­ning to watch the Super Bowl but you can’t stand the NFL take-​a-​knee protests, you may want to root for the Philadel­phia Eagles.

Not a sin­gle Eagles player sat or knelt dur­ing the national anthem, one of just seven teams with per­fect non-​kneeling records, in a sea­son that saw 684 such inci­dents, accord­ing to a study released Thurs­day by Sports Pundit.

The other Super Bowl LII team, the New Eng­land Patri­ots, landed in the mid­dle of the pack with 17 inci­dents of anthem sit­ting or kneel­ing, wedged between the Buf­falo Bills with 16 and the Cleve­land Browns with 20.

So while many in the Nev­ertrump® world are no doubt are cel­e­brat­ing they have not con­sid­ered that the Eagles have put the Pres­i­dent in the cat­bird seat. Instead of invit­ing a team where a large num­ber of play­ers protested his remarks from a region that gave him but a sin­gle elec­toral vote and won­der­ing who might show up, Pres­i­dent Trump after releas­ing a pre-​game state­ment about stand­ing for the anthem, now gets to invite a team from a swing state that he won, where not a sin­gle mem­ber of the team took a knee the entire season..

And don’t think for one sec­ond that the pres­i­dent will fail to note that bit of Karma on twit­ter sooner rather than later and use it to his advan­tage. More­over he might just be snarky enough to con­grat­u­late all the left­ists out there for choos­ing to cel­e­brate a team that refused to dis­re­spect the flag.

It will be a lot of fun to see if he is able to bait his foes on the left to attack the cham­pi­ons of Philadel­phia as insuf­fi­ciently woke and alien­ate the blue col­lar vot­ers now cel­e­brat­ing in the streets.

As the city of Philadelphia celebrate their championship (and upcoming quarterback controversy)  and Patriots fans question the benching of Malcolm Butler and continue to whine about the Garoppolo trade in the wake of Superbowl 52 there is one aspect of the game that nobody is talking about, at least not yet.

While the Patriots have been identified with the President in the past it’s worth noting that after his speech in Alabama Tom Brady distanced himself from President Trump and 17 members of the New England Patriots took a knee to the boos of the fans in Foxborough.

contrariwise not only did no member of the Philadelphia Eagles take a knee that week Philly was one of only seven team that didn’t have a single player protest during the National Anthem all season.

If you’re planning to watch the Super Bowl but you can’t stand the NFL take-a-knee protests, you may want to root for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Not a single Eagles player sat or knelt during the national anthem, one of just seven teams with perfect non-kneeling records, in a season that saw 684 such incidents, according to a study released Thursday by Sports Pundit.

The other Super Bowl LII team, the New England Patriots, landed in the middle of the pack with 17 incidents of anthem sitting or kneeling, wedged between the Buffalo Bills with 16 and the Cleveland Browns with 20.

So while many in the Nevertrump® world are no doubt are celebrating they have not considered that the Eagles have put the President in the catbird seat.  Instead of inviting a team where a large number of players protested his remarks from a region that gave him but a single electoral vote and wondering who might show up, President Trump after releasing a pre-game statement about standing for the anthem, now gets to invite a team from a swing state that he won, where not a single member of the team took a knee the entire season..

And don’t think for one second that the president will fail to note that bit of Karma on twitter sooner rather than later and use it to his advantage.   Moreover he might just be snarky enough to congratulate all the leftists out there for choosing to celebrate a team that refused to disrespect the flag.

It will be a lot of fun to see if he is able to bait his foes on the left to attack the champions of Philadelphia as insufficiently woke and alienate the blue collar voters now celebrating in the streets.
