Skipping The Super Bowl Winning Team’s White House Meeting Has Been Going On For Years

After winning his fifth Super Bowl in the last 16 years, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft on Monday responded to the fact that several of his players won’t be joining the team to visit the White House.

So far, Devin McCourty, Martellus Bennett, Chris Long, LeGarrette Blount, and a handful of other players have said they won’t accompany their teammates for the traditional White House visit in the coming months.

But Kraft said there’s something very “interesting” about the media coverage the statement has garnered this year:

“Well, you know what’s interesting, this is our, I’m happy to say, fifth Super Bowl in the last 16 years,” Kraft said on the Today Show Monday. “And every time we’ve had the privilege of going to the White House, a dozen of our players don’t go. This is the first time it’s gotten any media attention.”

Winning players have skipped meeting Obama every year he was in office.

Even Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady skipped the team’s White House visit In 2015 with Obama.

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
