Washington Times ^ | January 29, 2018 | Jay LeBlanc

Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Chris Long said he won’t visit President Trump’s White House if his team defeats the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday. “No, I’m not going to the White House,” Long said in an interview on Barstool Sports’ podcast Pardon My Take. “Are you kidding me?” Long, who was originally drafted by the St. Louis Rams and is playing in his 10th NFL season, played for the Patriots last season. He was one of several players who skipped the team’s White House visit after New England defeated the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI. Long is the son of Pro Football Hall of Famer and current Fox Sports studio analyst Howie Long.

I won't be watching the game but this just gives me another reason to root against Philly. Chris should go suck obama’s ass if he wins the game. That's his type of president.

His saying he will skip a WH visit if it were somehow to be allowed,, is kind of like the Vikings skipped playing in the NFC final.. figuring they’d be home in Minniesoda anyway..

sad days ahead for the NFL as it continues its nosedive into mediocrity.

Shouldn’t they focus on winning the game first?

These pouty absences from athletes have lost their effect.

“No, I’m not going to the White House,” Long said in an interview on Barstool Sports’ podcast Pardon My Take.

Whatever that is. Probably has as many viewers as ESPN.

Lindsey Vonn said the same thing, Chris.

Now she's happy if someone visits her.

If the Eagles win, and he gets an invitation to the White House, he’ll go, regardless of what he thinks now. Who is going to pass up a chance to be a guest at the White House? He’ll bite the bullet and come up with some excuse, but he’ll do it. Bet on it. Fame and history are wonderful persuaders. Call his bluff, Mr. President!
