    Look at the reactions to Mathews comments, poor guy was just trying to be respectful

    I wouldn't call his comment neutral though.

    There's a lot of Trump types in Canada. Look how they've treated PK even though he's one of the best guys in the league off the ice.

    That's fair but it was pretty generic and I think he was just trying to respectfully answer a question rather than make a statement.

    As they should be. No reason to declare you are going to the WH at this moment. All they did was paint themselves into a corner and makes them look terrible.

    meh. the timing wasn't good at all, but they were going to get shit on regardless of when it was announced. doing anything that could be considered supporting Trump is now taboo.

    the timing was no mistake. they clearly wanted to align themselves with one side of the aisle.

    So why announce it at all? Was there a pressing need to put it out there?

    for all the criticism they are getting from one side, they are getting praise from the other. shit, they were praised by the president himself.

    is this like a keep politics out of sports threads thing or do you just disagree?

    I highly doubt that. Burkle is a big Clinton friend. They fuck prostitutes on his plane together.

    Pretty obvious the question was being asked a lot and they had to answer otherwise it was going to keep coming up. Wrong answer but whatever.

    Accepting the invite as a team, something historically done for years across multiple sports, is a far cry from "aligning" oneself with a policitcal idiology.

    well whether it was intentional or not they wound up on the side of the discussion with Trump and NASCAR.

    I personally don't give a fuck either way what anyone does but if they get blasted on social media so be it. The "if you're not with us you're against us" narrative about these visits is retarded imo

    Trump is the one that created that narrative though. And your org aligned with him.

    There will be a simple pass that is missed and he'll spend the next 5 min complaining about lack of focus, ect.

    but before that. isn't it usually only the players that were on the team during the championship year who go to the WH?

    The fact he was asked the question indicates otherwise. I think the entire current team goes usually.

    Karlsson full participant at practice. Looks like he’ll be good to go for the opener. Insane how quickly he recovered from this and the Achilles injury

    This White House talk is crazy. Tim Thomas decline the invite in 2012. He got called a racist and ESPN blasted him saying this wasn’t the time to make political stances. Now they are glorifying people not going and blasting people for going. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Yeah I know. I just noticed it last week when I was setting it up for this year. Kind of annoyed I went all summer not knowing. Oh well. HD MLB games are pretty easy to find, unlike hockey. Thank goodness for LM
