Default A New Yorker is telling Philadelphia

...that their team, the Eagles, has abandoned them. Take Trump out of it. A New Fucking Yorker is telling us how to feel about our team. Unacceptable Bullshit.

slag is correct. This is all about the USFL lawsuit. It isn't even politics. It's him still being burned by the $3 damages.

If I'm not mistaken, it was his ego that sunk that league in the first place. He was convinced that they could go head to head with the NFL in the fall. Forget that the NFL had all the networks wrapped up. I always thought it was a big win for them that they got players like Flutie, Jim Kelly, Reggie White, Bryant, Anthony Carter, and Bobby Hebert to play for their teams while it was a spring league. They had a TV contract with ABC I think in the spring. I was stationed in Japan the first season it existed and a colleague of mine who was from Philly got his dad to send him tapes of those first Philly games. I then got stationed in Montgomery Alabama and went to see the Birmingham Stallions play a few times.

a) oh yeah ... it's politics

b) nobody with half a brain is falling for his self-serving bullshit mischaracterization about the fans any more than they believe ... oh ... say ... Redskin is a term of respect

EDITED TO ADD: it's not only playing to his base ... but it's a substantial part of the equation IMO

Agree with Slag. This is pure politics. Trump doesn't give a shit about the flag. Just changing the subject and appealing to his base.

It is sad how low our country has sunk.
