Tim Thomas disses President Obama, is a no-show at the White House

Today the Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins visited President Obama at the White House, but one of the main components of the team was missing. Bruins MVP Tim Thomas skipped out on the White House event .

Yahoo Sports – Tim Thomas was celebrated for being only the second American player to win playoff MVP, having posted two shutouts in the Final. Chara smiled. Marchand blushed. Thomas wasn’t there to hear it. Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli confirmed that Thomas had told him months ago he would not attend the White House event due to his political and ideological differences with the Obama administration. Chiarelli said he had tried to convince Thomas to attend the event “over the last couple months” to no avail.

Okay, so Thomas wouldn’t go because he doesn’t like the Obama administration? This guy better take some heat for this. This is America and you are arguably the best American hockey player in the World right now, you once accepted your role as an American when you accepted a spot on the US Olympic Hockey Team, you are the ONLY American on the roster during the playoff run, and you’re the one to skip out? No matter what Obama is our President for the time being. I don’t care if you voted for him or not, he’s the head honcho. I’m usually not a big fan of being a lunatic about being American. I don’t have the sweet American flag tinted back window in my pick up truck or the soaring eagles tattooed on my upper thigh, but I know that no matter who the president of our country is they should be respected. Of course I love Tim Thomas but this is one of the dumbest moves I have ever heard of. He is now number two on my most hated Boston sports athletes of all-time, right next to Curt Schilling.

Update: Tim Thomas has made a statement on his Facebook page:

I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People.
This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government.
Because I believe this, today I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL. 
This is the only public statement I will be making on this topic. TT

Again, I am not some liberal psycho by any means, I am in the middle and unbiased. However, as the lone American who played on the Stanley Cup Championship team during the playoffs I believe Thomas should have been there.

P.S. Having Marchand in front of Chara is hilarious

  1. I have two Tim Thomas Stanley Cup Finals jerseys that are for sale now to then highest bidder. How pathetic to embarrass the Bruins like that and disrespect the United Staes of America in such a selfish way. He better keep winning to keep his day job, because he obviously doesn’t have the brains and patriotism for anything else

  2. Wow, what a jerkoff. I wonder if Boston fans would be so forgiving if he refused to play for a democrat coach, gm, or owner and demanded a trade? Americans aren’t surprised by this lunatic fringe element anymore. I’m sure Fox news will hire him to be their neutral sports correspondent.

  3. WAY TO GO TIMMY!!! Anonymous I would love to have one of your jerseys your an idiot and don’t deserve them go stand with the other sheep. I am Proud to be an American and proud of Tim standing up for what he believes in. If you read why he didn’t attend you would understand, it’s about Obama and the government slowly eroding our constitutional rights and getting too big and controlling our lives.

  4. I applaud Tim for taking this stand. You are condemning a man for standing for his personal beliefs, yet it is okay for other highly regarded sports figures to go to jail for participating in dog fighting, to use sports enhancement drugs, drive while intoxicated and be charged with sexual assault or abuse only to return to play the next season. So he decided to not show. This is his prerogative. Personally, as a veteran of the United States, I might have been inclined to deny the invitation, because even as a veteran, my beliefs or as it was stated “political and ideological differences” far out weigh the notoriety of a visit to the White House to meet my Chief of State.

    1. We have definitely done many pieces on Vick, Roethlisberger, Plaxico, Bonds, etc. So I also did one on the only American on the Bruins that played during the playoff run who didn’t show up because he doesn’t agree with the government. I don’t care about his beliefs, I care that he couldn’t be a part of a team event with a bunch of other athletes who probably hate the American government as well. And quickly let me just touch performance enhancing drugs: I say do them if you want because it will only hurt your life in the long run… just don’t kill dogs while taking them.

      1. Mr. MBA
        You must be very proud to be an American who supports icons such as this where young children view them under a magnifying glass. What they will see is a person who stands up for what they believe in rather than following the crowd, even if it means you stand alone. You have summed things up well in your final sentence of where your morals and ethics lie. You have said it is okay to break the rules so long as you “don’t kill dogs”. Nice, just the person I wish to have my son look up to. I say, awesome job for standing alone, Tim. You did and stood alone on your creeds. This is what children will see!

  5. And I believe it is this kind of behavior that has prayer out of schools, and people wanting to remove ‘God’ out of the pledge. Fine stand up for what you believe, but what about teaching and showing our children respect. You can disagree and still be respectful. This opportunity could have been used for so much more.

    1. You are missing the point, it is not Tim Thomas’s job to teach children respect that is the job of the parent. Stop expecting others to parent your children. Maybe if you heard about president Obama’s involvement in keeping Attorney General Holder from testifying about the governments involvement in border patrol agent Brian Terry’s murder you would have dissed the president also. Gotta give respect to get it.
