    Politics and Sports

    I have tried to look objectively at yesterday's non event and have asked if anyone actually knows what TT's beliefs are. I stated my opinion on other threads but now I have to wonder. What was perhaps a rather private protest has drawn responses of thousands of Americans. He quietly got the country (or atleast hockey fans) talking and he has brought attention to the the party he supports. Guess there is no such thing as bad publicity?

    Pay no attention vcec, and yeah if people are talking, then that;s half the point of a protest.

    Thanks Red. Hey, I have a question for you since you are one of the most knowledgeable posters here.......

    Someone on another site posted that the NHL does not allow it's players to use their position to influence fans on their political or religious beliefs. Said it was put into the contracts sometime after 9/11. Any truth to it?

    My 2 cents. 

    The visit to the White House is to get a pat on the back from the President of the United States for a job well done.  The President plays many rolls.  Commander in chief, CEO of the Federal Government, and as a representative of the American Public.

    The role played by the President at such events is the Representative of the people.  In other words, the White House event was an opportunity for the POTUS to tell the Bruins well done on behalf of the American Public.

    He may not have meant to, but by boycotting the event, Thomas in essence gave the country the finger.

    Oh, and this is why professional athletes should keep their personal lives seperate from their professional lives.  The less we know about them, the better off everyone is.  Now, my opinion of Tim Thomas is clouded by knowing that he follows Glen Beck.

    What wacho told you that the President is a representative of the American public or the CEO of the Federal Government?

    Oh, I see, you just made that up to support your statement that TT gave you the finger.

    Good work.
