Most of the Packers visited the White House last week to meet with President Barack Obama. The 2011 Packers.
At least one member of the 2010 team isn’t thrilled with the Packers’ decision to leave players from last year’s team behind.
“It’s a disappointing fact that they didn’t even call guys that helped win to see if they wanted to join them,” Cardinals guard Daryn Colledge said, via Kent Somers of the Arizona Republic. “They said it was a logistics thing, but I believe I had the day off.”
We suspect Colledge will get criticized in Green Bay for whining, but we agree with his viewpoint. Going to the White House is one of the cooler parts of winning a title; the Packers players absolutely ate up the experience last week.
All of the guys who helped Green Bay get to the White House should have been allowed to go if they were interested.
