    MERGED: Some Former Phins to Skip White House Visit

    Some refusing to go to meet the President.
    I like what Langer said- Weve got some real moral compass issues in Washington, Hall of Fame center Jim Langer said. I dont want to be in a room with those people and pretend Im having a good time. I cant do that. If that (angers) people, so be it.

    I applaud him, just as I would anyone who didn't want to see Bush.

    To each his own. I would go, and I'm about as Anti-Obama as you get. I personally think refusing a chance
    to see the POTUS is disrespectful to the office.

    Might be disrespectful to the office is what this country needs ... Rep or dem, this country has been in a mess for a while and folks in dc need a wakeup call.

    I actually respect the office more, the actual office, walls, carpet and furniture, haha. Like you said Boss, it is a once in a lifetime event, and you're being invited. The best part is that everyone has the freedom to choose. No comment from Don yet, although I expect he'll attend. He's kind of a big deal!

    Its not really about politics its about getting recognition for a unique achievement and respect of the office. I am way lefty liberal but I would never disrespect any POTUS, quite frankly I would be thrilled to meet any of them that are still alive and would gladly shake their hand and thank them for their service and leadership its not easy being the leader of the free world. I would have loved to have sit down with Nixon and picked his brain. It's a shame that nowadays we cant disagree politically and not sit down and still come together as Americans. Some how it has become us vs them and there is no middle ground anymore. It's a shame they cannot see being summoned to the White House by any POTUS is the highest honor any American citizen should strive for. There is no politics here, its a salute to a game that has become ingrained in our way of life so silly they need to stand up against their own achievement

    Langer was asked a question and he answered it honestly. Half of the people in this country disagree with with the current president and administration.
    I hope Shula goes..it is really about honoring his accomplishment IMHO. The players will go because it is long over due.
    All that said, it really suuks that Obama is the sitting POTUS

    Another POV

    Realistically, Obama could give a **** about Langer - probably doesn't know who he was (since "is" is now irrelevant) and won't miss his absence. IMO, this reflects worse on Langer than it does on Washington and actually amounts to him biting his own nose to spite his face as current copy and photos will essentially serve to overlook his contributions in the public consciousness . (Although I'm no fan of Obama, I'd feel the same if this empty protest took place during the Cheney-Bush administration, of which I'm even less of a fan idk

    Just go to the White House with your team and shut the **** up. Nobody cares if he goes or not.
