…and Three Players With Perfect Integrity.
A sport other than basketball got recognized at the White House on Tuesday, August 20, 2013. But it took a phenomenal accomplishment and that was to go undefeated for an entire season. The 1972 Dolphins did that and were the last NFL team to do so.
However, three of those players did not attend and I give them much credit for their integrity. Cited, as their main reason for not attending was their disagreement with Barack Hussein Obama’s views.
“We’ve got some real moral compass issues in Washington,” Hall of Fame center Jim Langer said. “I don’t want to be in a room with those people and pretend I’m having a good time. I can’t do that. If that [angers] people, so be it.”
“I’ll just say my views are diametrically opposed to the President’s,” Manny Fernandez, Tackle · Defensive end · Defensive tackle · Defensive lineman said. “Let’s leave it at that. I hope everyone enjoys the trip who goes.”
And former offensive lineman Bob Kuechenberg added: “I want to be careful, because Mom said if you have nothing good to say about someone, then don’t say anything,” he told the newspaper. “I don’t have anything good to say about someone. … I just don’t believe in this administration at all. So I don’t belong. Anyone on the left or the right has to respect one man’s opinion.
Earlier this year, another football center who played for the Baltimore Ravens, Matt Birk, did not attend the White House ceremonies for his Super Bowl team because he is against same-sex marriage. There was no desire to meet Obama.
Many people are against the policies Obama and his regime have installed, but you don’t hear of the ones who oppose Obama, the people who stand-up for righteousness.
