Eagles get invited to White House to honor title

Philadelphia Eagles invited to visit White House June 5

The Eagles released a statement last month that said: "We have been in contact with White House representatives and are now discussing the logistics of an upcoming visit to Washington".

The Philadelphia Eagles reportedly are going to be visiting the White House next month. "He's fired. He's fired!", President Trump in this past September, per Time.com. "We are honored to receive this invitation and view this not only as an opportunity to be recognized for our on-field accomplishments but also an opportunity to engage in productive dialogue with the leaders of our country".

Since the Eagles recorded the first Super Bowl win in franchise history, a number of players, and now former players, announced their intentions to skip the White House visit, should the team be invited. Long also skipped the White House visit a year ago when he was a member of the New England Patriots.

"Over the last two years, I've been meeting with legislators, both Republican and Democrat, it don't matter".

Long, 33, has been one of the league's most active players when it comes to political and social issues. "If you want to meet to talk about events in my community, changing the country, I'm all for that". "I know for a fact there are guys who have dreamt of the opportunity to go to the White House and I think they should have that opportunity".

Trump's comments from October, where he called on all owners to "fire" any player who made a decision to kneel for the anthem, didn't sit well with a lot of the players in the Eagles locker room.

The team was officially approached in April to set a date.

"[When] my son grows up, and I believe the legacy of our president is going to be what it is", Long said in February, via the Washington Post. It's an annual tradition for championship teams around the sports world to visit the nation's most famous house. After the Golden State Warriors won the National Basketball Association championship last season, President Trump withdrew an invitation before the team could decide whether to attend.
