Three ’72 Dolphins skip White House visit for political reasons
As a Dolphins fan, I am kind of disgusted by this. This is to celebrate the TEAM, not who they voted for in the last election.
Former Dolphins guard Bob Kuechenberg, center Jim Langer and defensive tackle Manny Fernandez all told Dave Hyde of the Sun Sentinel that they don’t want to appear alongside a president whose policies they don’t support.May the FORCE be with you!

It's their right to stay away, if they don't want to go. (I don't suppose anyone will be surprised if I say I've never heard of any of them....)"Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L. Mencken

I don't remember whether Jordan went to see Bush 41 or not. If not, it's a childish thing to do, to let politics get in the way of celebrating a championship. The Pistons went to see GHWB when they won in the late 80s. Of course, Laimbeer probably already knew President Bush, being a GOP member himself.

Good for them. I wish Congressmen would have that kind of integrity.

Of course they can decide for themselves to go or not go. Announcing it to the media is just attention whoring.
