Josh Norman chimes in on Eagles’ White House cancellation

On Monday, the President pulled the plug on Philadelphia’s visit to the White House, apparently after realizing that fewer than 10 players would be participating. A player from one of the Eagles’ top rivals responded to the situation by posing a question via the President’s preferred platform for communicating with the masses.

Why is this impeachment taking so damn long?” Washington cornerback Josh Norman said on Twitter.

At a time when the NFL and its teams have chosen to tiptoe around the President, could it be that the pushback will now come more aggressively from the players? Norman isn’t the first NFL player to voice dissent when it comes to the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania, but his invocation of the “I” word at a fairly sensitive time in the ongoing battle between pro football and the President could prompt more and more NFL players to pile on.

And the players may continue, regardless of whether the NFL continues to act like it’s in the middle of a minefield, without realizing that the bombs will keep going off even if the NFL keeps perfectly still.

  1. Impeach him for what? Being a jerk at times or being bullied by the media? Stick to football or dancing. After all, employment (especially for African-Americans) is near record lows but you wouldn’t know it by watching the “news”. I suppose I’m a racist or conservative crock for having this opinion too.

  2. Hopefully people will stop being distracted by the Electoral college elected POTUS with Anthem rally cry and look at how corrupt he really is…

  3. Hey Josh, perhaps you should concentrate on your team and why it’s taking so long to get back to another SB, or why it’s taking so long to change yourr team’s nickname from a racial slur… glasses houses and all.

  4. liberal tolerance, if you did not agree with obama and his liberal policies and refused to go with team to white house you were disrespecting the president and the office and were a racist. refuse to visit with PRESIDENT TRUMP and you are courageous and a true hero.

  5. Most of the Eagles, the NFL and certainly Josh Norman are anti American plush Josh is not very smart. I’d bet his salary against mine the best POTUS in a very long time will never be impeached.

  6. Perhaps Trump can get the Russians to hack the 2018 NFL season, so that a team that likes him can win the Super Bowl. On second thought, the only way an NFL team would like him would be if the league immediately placed an expansion franchise in Sandpoint, Idaho.

  7. Been an Eagles fan since 1978 and will continue to be a phan of the Birds. But, I’ve never been disappointed by them more then I was today.

    I heard interviews on local radio by some players calling Trump a racist. Claiming Trump said that black NFL players are SOBs and should be fired. Trump never said that. Anyways politics aside The players should respect the OFFICE even if they don’t the POTUS. I’m truely embarrassed for them.

  8. Who gives a rat’s ass what Josh Norman thinks about the White house cancelling a trip for Eagles players? Fewer than 10? I’d pull the offer too. Supposed to be an honor to go, not something you are dragged to, kicking and screaming.

  9. Same reason it took so long to impeach Bill Clinton. It’s not that way just because you hate the man. It’s called a process.

  10. Oh boy, Trump should get worried…the NFL is now breaking out their “brain trust”…

  11. Obviously the owners don’t have the courage to stand up to the hypocritical moron in chief…

  12. “Why is this impeachment taking so damn long?” Washington cornerback Josh Norman said on Twitter.

    Because Obama’s not in office anymore and can’t be impeached any longer.

  13. I’m gratified that one man in this country is unafraid of the left’s witch hunt mentality. How many liberals in the last few months alone have made comments so vile that when made by conservative have lost them their jobs? Well past time for the liberal mindset of Dr Crane’s version of justice where you are convicted sentenced then tried to be flushed where it belongs

  14. I don’t care what any althelte, actor, singer, or other so called star has to say on their own time. That is freedom of speech. I do care if they are being paid to do a job and then want to voice their opinions during their work function.

  15. Yes RS, impeaching the elected leader of the United States of America for not doing a photo op with a football team is a good precedent to set.

  16. Huh? The majority of the eagles said they would not attend. So trump obliged and cancelled. Isnt that what the eagles wanted since they werent interested in attending? What did trump do wrong?

  17. NFL needs to do like the NBA and say that all players need to stand. NBA’s policy:” Players, coaches and trainers are to stand and line up in a dignified posture along the sidelines or on the foul line during the playing of the National Anthem.”. This way there is no choices such as you can stay in the locker room OR protest and get fined. I agree with Florio on one thing, in that the NFL sort of punted with this policy. They should have just taken the hard line and matched the NBA policy.

  18. Another brain washed ignorant dope who hasn’t a clue about the constitution.

    Read up Josh

    Because Josh, you can’t impeach a President for doing an awesome job.

  20. You see Josh, maybe you didn’t attend history class, but a president can only be impeached when they have committed impeachable offenses while in office. Oh and Standing up for the Flag and calling out Diva Disrespectful football players is not an impeachable offense.

  21. .
    and wait for the trumpettes to call him all sorts of names cuz their feelings are hurt while declaring the other side calls everyone names and are the snowflakes.

    From a life long Skins fan and former (for a reason) long term season ticket holder….shut it Josh. Cash your checks and play the game. Leave politics out of it.

    ——————————————————

    From a an actual lifelong Skins fan and current season ticket holder… Please keep talking Josh and don’t worry about if the snowflakes get offended.

  23. It’s ironic how the term “snowflake” is used. But it’s Trump that’s always getting his feelings hurt so easily. He’s the biggest “snowflake” there is.

    I could be wrong but I thought every president was elected by the Electoral College, unless something changed in the last election!

  25. I can’t get a post approved because? Players should watch Band of Brothers? I hope none of the players children come home in a flag draped coffin because they made a choice.

    Zing…Lol

  27. These progressives remind me of Alice in Wonderland:
    “Let the jury consider their verdict,” the King said, for about the twentieth time that day.
    “No, no!” said the Queen. “Sentence first–verdict afterward.”
    “Stuff and nonsense!” said Alice loudly. “The idea of having the sentence first!”
    “Hold your tongue!” said the Queen, turning purple.
    “I won’t!” said Alice.
    “Off with her head!” the Queen shouted at the top of her voice.

  28. For Trumpf fans I ask, What say you if Mueller’s report says he collided with Russia (=treason) and obstructed Justice and impeachment is the recommended next step?

  29. The whole funny thing is ppl are missing the point. The whole kneeling movement was to shed light on injustice not attacking disrespecting the flag or any of the proud men and women who fightfor our country. That message is lost and now we’re playing who’s a real American. I thought we live in a place where there is FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

  30. Let’s be honest Trump is only mad he doesnt owe a nfl team. That’s the only reason he is rageing war against them.

    ============================
    You highlighted the very problem of kneeling during the anthem. The message got completely lost because of the disrespect for the flag (and it is). If the players kneeled before or after the anthem are we talking about it? Of course not. It’s completely disingenuous to claim the disrespect angle isn’t the catalyst behind this message trying to get noticed. The freedoms offered to all Americans certainly cover the players ability to kneel during the anthem. Unfortunately it doesn’t cover the backlash from taking on that very act.
