Makes sense.

The Toronto Raptors are set to have their NBA championship victory parade Monday but a decision has yet to be made about whether the team will end up visiting the White House.

The mayor of Ottawa – Canada’s capital – tweeted Friday that the Raptors should skip the White House visit and head directly to the city instead to visit the country’s parliament.

“Hey @Raptors  forget the White House for a victory lap. Come to Ottawa and parliament hill so Canada can congratulate you!  How about it @JustinTrudeau,” Mayor Jim Watson wrote.

It wasn’t clear whether the Raptors will be invited to the White House. President Trump hasn’t tweeted about the Raptors since the team defeated the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA Finals last week.

Previously in 2017, Trump rescinded a White House invitation to the Warriors after they won the title. Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant both had made remarks critical of the president’s administration.

And if the Blue Jays ever won the World Series, should they do the same? As with all NBA teams, "the North" won with predominantly US players. There is nothing wrong with them visiting both capitals if a invitation is extended.

They are based in Canada.  The Spurs won a championship with a cast of foreign players. They didn't hopscotch over the globe meeting heads of states.   

If the Blue Jays win a World Series anytime soon they'll do it with players from the Caribbean and Latin America.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
