I hope Justin Abdelkader doesn't show up next year. Fox News will have a fit about Obama honoring a fellow Arab.

“Everybody has their own opinions and political beliefs. He chose not to join us,” said Neely, as per CSNNE.com. “We certainly would have liked to have him come and join us. But it’s his choice. It’s obviously not a choice most of the guys…well, all of the guys came except for Tim. But it’s his decision and his choice.”

I have no issue with his decision but everybody knows how divided politics are in the states and what an unnecessary shit storm this would cause so for that reason alone he should have sucked it up and gone

He did for both visits so it wasnt politically motivated. It was just him not caring to go.

I don't think it was over politics as much as it was over "fear of flying". He also skipped Bush and Obama so politics/race are a wash in that discussion.

Disappointing. I still dont know about an elbow but it was a pretty vicious boarding penalty.

Yeah, I wasn't saying it really was.

He said the visit didn't really matter to him or something.

@SlavaMalamud Seriously, is Tim Thomas in the White House?

@SlavaMalamud If Tim Thomas really did boycott the White House event, this should be a story. Did any president have to deal with this kind of disrespect?

@SlavaMalamud And don't tell me this has nothing to do with race. This utter, uncompromising hatred of the President is something I've never seen before

@SlavaMalamud Pretty sure 99% of US-born NBA players are Dems ('cause, you know, black), but they showed their asses up at WH to meet Bush. Unbelievable

@SlavaMalamud Screw you, Tim Thomas, and all the "me patriot, you traitor" crowd that breeds this hatred. You are not Americans and never will be.

@SlavaMalamud Next time there is a GOP President (if ever) I hope an entire NBA or college team boycotts the hell out of him. Will never happen, tho

@SlavaMalamud This animal hatred of the man got to the point that merely standing on a stage next to him is some kind of an insult. Tim, you are an idiot.

Who is this slava fucktard? He thinks Thomas didn't want to meet Obama because he is black? Ahahaha

So ridiculous that this has become sort of controversy. Athletes skip this shit every year in every sport. You should care less about how these guys think politically or any aspect of their personal life really and worry about how they help your team win.

Well it happens, but no it is not that often.

However, Tim Thomas is from Flint.

Three games for Ovechkin....and Michalek didn't get anything. Okay, got it.

It was a bad hit and he deserves to be suspended but I wouldn't have gone over two games. The fact that he got three games and Michalek got nothing just frustrates me. Whatever.
