Idiotic excuse to not meet Obama, DMVP not going

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shu...urn=nfl,163886


On Thursday, President Obama will welcome the Pittsburgh Steelers to the White House to honor the team for its recent Super Bowl victory. But, just like in 2006 when the Steelers had a post-title meeting with George W. Bush, defensive MVP (and Super Bowl hero) James Harrison won't be in attendance. But he has a good reason:

"This is how I feel -- if you want to see the Pittsburgh Steelers, invite us when we don't win the Super Bowl. As far as I'm concerned, he [Obama] would've invited Arizona if they had won."

Usually, when a sentence begins with "as far as I'm concerned," it ends with an opinion, not an incontrovertible fact. Harrison's comment is akin to saying, "As far as I'm concerned, George Washington was the first president."

Of course the Cards would have received the White House invite if they had won. Winners get to go meet the president, losers don't. They also get the trophy, the parade and those hats that say "Super Bowl champs". I don't think James Harrison(notes) turned down any of those things, which makes his refusal to go to the White House a tad hypocritical.

When Harrison won the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year award, he didn't decline and say, "As far as he was concerned, they would've given this award to someone else if they had had a better defensive season." And when he scored that touchdown in the Super Bowl after returning an interception 100 yards, I'm pretty sure Harrison didn't tell the ref to take the points of the board because, as far as he was concerned, if Larry Fitzgerald(notes) had caught him, he wouldn't have scored.

As far as I'm concerned, James Harrison is sort of a fool. If he doesn't want to go to the White House, fine. (Although I can't imagine why anybody wouldn't want to meet the President of the United States.) But don't make a lame excuse in an attempt to justify your decision. Leave that for NFL refeeres.

Now I can understand if you didn't like him, but to not go because the Cardinals would have went if they would have won is just retarded

What a complete ignoramus. You've accomplished something notable, and are therefore invited to the friggin' White House...and you don't go because you figure had you not accomplished this feat, the White House wouldn't have invited you...

...just...wow...

I wonder if anyone has challenged him on this? Meh. Who cares I guess. There are stupid millionaires all over the place.

I didn't vote for Obama. I'm an outspoken critic. But if I got an invite by the POTUS to come to the White House...you betcher ass I'm showing up...

Maybe he has a problem being out in public. Some people are like that. Remember Ricky Williams suffered from anxiety and had to wear a helment during an interview. Give the guy a break.

I don't remember if he made a stupid comment then but it's not like he hasn't said no to going to The White House before.

So Obama would've wanted to invite the Steelers even if they hadn't won just because they're the Pittsburgh goddamn Steelers?

I hope Harrison dies in a fire.

He didn't like Bush and didn't want to go. If he goes now, he looks like a partisan hack and doesn't want to turn off any fans. I'm sure his agent has something to do with this, he just found an excuse not to go.
