Chris Long won't visit White House if Eagles win Super Bowl

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady arrives for Chris Long won't visit White House if Eagles win Super Bowl
Noah Ferguson | 30 January, 2018, 03:25

Defensive end Chris Long told PFTCommenter during an interview on Sunday's Barstool's Sports "Pardon My Take" podcast that he wouldn't attend the annual championship White House tour if the Eagles win.

PFT Commenter asked, "If you guys win the Super Bowl, are you going to the White House?"

"Are you kidding me", said Long...

The Super Bowl kicks off in less than one week, where the Philadelphia Eagles will face the defending champion, New England Patriots at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota. It's got nothing to do with kneeling, marching or respecting soldiers, but it seems like a considerable number of our countrymen would see it otherwise, no matter the evidence.

Chris Long is pretty adamant about his stance on a potential trip to the White House.

Long was a member of last year's New England Patriots team that won Super Bowl LI but was not in attendance for the team's visit with President Donald Trump in April.

While not mandatory, the champions of the four major United States professional leagues (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL) have made it an annual tradition to make a yearly trek to the White House. Long and several other players vocal about social issues have criticized Trump, including Malcolm Jenkins, who called the president "a troll on the internet" earlier this season.

For now, the main focus of Long and the Eagles is not on meeting the president, but rather on taking down the dynastic Patriots squad.
