Colledge Not Happy With Packers Over White House Snub
Like the rest of us, former Green Bay Packers guard [intlink id=”94″ type=”category”]Daryn Colledge[/intlink] probably watched the team’s White House visit online.
Of course, we didn’t play on the 2010 Packers and Colledge did.
As expected, the Packers didn’t bother to invite players like Colledge, who signed with the [intlink id=”174″ type=”category”]Arizona Cardinals[/intlink] this offseason, to the event. Colledge openly expressed his disappointment.
“It’s a disappointing fact that they didn’t even call guys that helped win to see if they wanted to join them,” he told Kent Somers.
Although it probably would have been a nightmare logistically, the Packers leaving guys out who were on the team and helped them win is reminiscent of when they decided to take the team Super Bowl photo without the players on injured reserve. In fact, it’s probably worse.
Word is, current Packers who weren’t on last year’s team did get to go to the White House even though they had nothing to do with the team’s Super Bowl win.
Even if the Packers had invited former players and asked them to make their own arrangements, it would have been better than nothing.
For an organization that coined the term Packer people, it wasn’t a very Packer move.
