Out of my goodness gracious hand look at the list which seems to be growing Biden admitted his first it was see what Martellus. Bennett who said. I am not gonna go to the White House if we win. And you know we're of course of Dartmouth patriots. Don't list is growing. Which I don't know who's surprised by this are you surprised by this I'm actually not. I had you know we've joked about all this is the Donald Trump. But team but it's it's not it's not the Donald Trump team to that list has grown it's now. Only Garret blunt. DeVon record eight Merrill Martellus Bennett and Chris Long Chris Long I think in little a little bit surprising he Jordan is group. In addition to that I think you who else. Hillary and go in a long long is claiming it's not trump related though right along real weird about that he's Indian weird he's not really giving an answer buddies trying to come off like a bad ass at the same time it's it's very and you just don't like the White House leaders and believe in or we're just he was saying you know I wasn't asked and I'm not trying to make a statement in it's just nonsense but either way he's not. So why go. How odd Donta hightower is not going on the trip. But he notes that he was already at the White House. Some of whom have said that which yes happens through the Kyoto Osaka and. Or before air hooked up to what I doesn't like I've been there before it's no big deal Margo on got a things on point. I guess morning. Back to Jake Tapper for example Jake Tapper is felt the need to continually tweet out all look at this patriot that's not going as if somehow this means some. I don't get it. If the three go. And by Big Three I really mean big two wood Big Three Brady Belichick in craft to go and that's it. Don't care of the rest I don't I don't think Earl ray there on the way payment dole will be there. But it doesn't grotto Cody didn't slightly gay is wrong is the funniest one because they're going to play number one number two obviously rock is. Really breaks on thing and all my god don't don't Bob Bender that would you want rock they are for comedic value of course. It doesn't matter there you know it's automatic air I don't assume we can't respect the office and these people really get McCord I don't feel accepted. Who won't go there and have a conversation with somebody. And give your viewpoint because that's where things can actually get done but instead you just can't even hide. And you just want the media exposure to make you look like some sort of hero but nothing gets done. You're another college can't predict in that situation say something. Is the best take on something good. I've heard you path in a long time congratulations and best man asked don't we talked. I've got some tape and show I've got good takes from the taxes and what needs to happen when the patriots are there and give you those of us up for a huge big have a second at any carbonite he's keeping an eye on what's happening on our commute on this she on this Friday morning. So much attacks on this with these what does it seat now patriots that are going to the white about the out for for various reasons. Ira fault eight are saying it's because they're wanna see Donald Trump the 50 wait do we know of the end zone militia will be invited. Got to the bottom of that. It it was governor of the word about it because the celebration was too good so I always annoyed or whoever it was that made the call you got away with that you pull that off and we'll never know who you are to condemn yes you're right. 50 wait. I want trump to put a statue of Brady and Michelle's garden. The media whatever freak out over that. Horry could go to Boston Brady wary of the Churchill bust is there that the MLK bust his member they were forty did speaking of fake news they fake news that. Italian I don't know that the media would freak out about it but I think there's a lot of people across the country because he Tom so much. Hater Ers because they're gel us a bomb. Several will be getting there will be there for a photo up wrong won't be in the photo however because you beginning a beer at the White House fringe. 774. I only wanna see Brady throwing a pass to baron. On the White House lawn now would be fantastic fall out. All that ordered I think there's a chance of that actually happening and all parents of patriots damages areas but. Tom Brady's going to be either don't you have an obligation to have your ten year old son Merrins a human costs and hypocrite. I like my highlight was kept in the the catcher from fielded dreams and don't have a testament and tossed me a ball I was like in heaven that we got to come out. Tom Brady you thought you'd gone back it was odd appeal. That I was not to go to Major League Baseball catcher as he was an act there if you don't want relief I still don't like something happen. He really thought you'd get you'd really achieve something at that boy it is funny how the tables turn so quickly sometimes right so yeah. Here we are to everybody the patriots are Donald Trump's team and you mentioned as soon as we went to. And we literally were being criticized nonstop. Leading up to the Super Bowl that all all we are. Are you don't sucking up to Donald Trump and how could we be friends and people can't watch the patriots anymore. Because of the trump problem which is one of the most grotesque arguments I've ever heard because. Last summer heard I think that actual stadium at the Super Bowl was about 7030. Patriots fans everyone was there said. The only people they saw water used to work patriots fans this falcons fans were nowhere to be found. And now all of a sudden. Just immediately because the narrative has changed a tiny bit. You know that the media is pouncing on people like McCord he bought all these people. For not going to the White House and now they're the heroes and we're not there really talking about the Belichick Brady factor anymore it's just completely current. Well I think he the fact that they tried to say that the patriots a word the trump team I think that was fake news. I think that the owner is a supporter and I think. You know I don't know how bill ballot second and Tom Brady may have voted for a Russian or some other guys on there who voted for a generally speaking though this is not surprising to me asked Paul this is happening. Not at all I think it's unfortunate. I don't know why this has to be so politicized. I mean it was it was originally. The gesture of having a championship team come to the White House was. Just that it was a gesture of us were you know out of honoring some group of individuals who had done something gory. That's all but you know you said this about two or three weeks ago we talked about this before this super ball. These guys you know what they're multi gazillion hairs they've got access to the president they've got access to Hollywood. They've got access to just about anybody they want at any point. This tradition should probably go away for for professional athletes fine if you want to see collegiate you know champions go. If we wanna take olympians although they too are in the same boat as these these professional athletes. Fine fine fine. But in these professional athletes enough it just turns it into an more political blab on blot and an wanna hear it. I like it like people him on record and I you know I am disappointed in McCord you know way. But according doesn't think he what do what is the exact quote Davie doesn't feel like he's in his voice is accepted that it. Jim Brown belt that way I'm guessing you respect Jim Brown & Brown feels that about trumpet and most people will tell you be part of the change right. Trump seems to be open to listening in to be open at least having meetings whether or not anything comes of it or not but. He did run on changing things changing things in inner cities we SpinRite who he really dynamic so be. A recording here's what. Who had just pulled up. Here's my ten things I want you to do. We spent a lot of do you do any nicknames he's he's a jockey to start sorry they're calling him and his brother ball they're they're Smart guys in their active and did they do let things be known so let's stored at your elected. I was watching a stream of the elevator in trump tower because I want to see. Holy crap who the hell the next guy to walk gain. One minute it's Al Gore what the hell is going on the next eight I Steve Harvey. It's a Ray Lewis these are all people who I'm sure they don't feel that accepted either. But they wanna go because they wanna go make something happen they wanna have a discussion. These. I don't need to don't have a discussion and they're not dole in their for that they're going their because they won the Super Bowl the president's nice enough that vitamin analog out. A photo op. If you wanna go don't go don't criticize this bit. You know don't criticize the president just go off to winter. Play land and and be done. I just this why I think they should do away with this there's no the president does not need to. These guys out there doing business in this just gives them a platform to do it and it's just The Who cares don't go it's just first. To continue you you don't pressure all the continually see stories that that's open up the globe today in the first thing I see is Dana Farber and the air doll house to move. From moral law go because they got some complaints I mean these stories that there's every single then I I am frustrated with that I'm tired as it was let's just end up. Who's this who's gonna sit like this got these guys are we do what I shouldn't go to still the people who do we demonize the people wanna stand up and say just respect the office. I understand why demonizing that though Dave I hear what you're coming from him that. I'm demonizing netted all. I think attribute the problem is what you're doing is you're just did this just opens up another. Pandora's box for people to bash the president so I'm just all you multi millionaires take your money. Take your Lombardi trophy and go home. Still way with. The president doesn't have to get wind the terrorist real men moving all the other dog and you what the president should do the president should say hi I'm. Bill old. Bob. I'd like to invite you guys to come to the White House and they need to make a billion pictures. Q and you stand there they're gonna do then do I ended this is simple you don't wanna come on can be you're invited. Tokyo and you're gonna make your statement going to you have to come. I just know we deal. I just think you know what why why does one take this anymore and it's just this president by the way it's all. It's any president they they all all of these teams ultimately had these people who who protest. Tony is in Maine 8 to morning. I get warning. I agree would you. Kim I think that they should just do away with. You know baseball team's football teams it's become way too politicized. And you know. Just it's ridiculous fact that you would not. Come to an invitation. By the prime the United States shows how politicize it is and it you know it isn't just it just didn't start well. Well you know which Robin Wright a little bomb a few times so you know was respectable man it's respectable now. There are limits I know there are limits don't arrested as many times it was in when Tim Thomas happened this came up. I don't know bright to win the Super Bowl and how I continue my football playing career probably would have. Which tend to I certainly don't chipped hightower Mike Freeman. But nonetheless what Tim Thomas didn't go to the White House when you think we heard the narrative of we should stop go we should stop having athletes go to the White House I never hurt idol you know I agree you're right and I'd be at the time I said what. It's within his rights I think it's within the patriots players right. Global what I did say that is well is. There are limits to if I were to win the Super Bowl and it Bill Clinton was an office I would think long and hard about it there's a difference between respecting me office in. You know what oh. This particular guy he is such that. I don't I can't say definitively that I would go when that search engines I don't want a photo wisdom. At the time now I might do with self you within a mock him that's a per thing that you're just it I can tell them. You don't you know and how you were doing is we're allowing these people to disrespect the office this is why should go way. What should happen is it the president picks and chooses off of a championship team who he. Wants to see this like you know I don't think the president has to see. Every single person given audience I don't think the position itself. I think people on this in this country who don't deserve an audience with. The president of the United States that he's got the so far. We rules we don't rule I know you don't think we have to rewrite the whole script because now that Donald Trump is an office we it it's not against Donald Trump didn't I don't think Obama. Listen you're you're right it didn't because it didn't happen very often the narrative wasn't so. Nobody was saying gosh and big guys being disrespectful to the office. And they they should've. Now they are being disrespectful to the office back then we also led you know it was just because you wanna go what the Portugal. Is disrespectful. President from this point forward should be able to pick and choose who he wants to spend time west. Six rounds of dues ex execs did 68 look.
