Patriots Explain Why They'll Boycott 'Super Bowl' White House Visit

Fox Sports reports that several members of the 2016-17 NFL Champion New England Patriots will boycott their team’s customary trip to the White House later this year. DT Alan Branch, DE Chris Long, RB LeGarrette Blount, TE Martellus Bennett and LB Dont’a Hightower all decided to skip the opportunity to meet with President Trump. Long, the sexy and outspoken son of sportscaster and former Oakland Raider Howie Long, said he wanted to be able to tell his children he made the right decision to take a stand against the visit. McCourty said he didn’t believe in Trump’s exclusionary rhetoric. The two athletes along with several Patriots fans were featured in a video supporting those who decided to boycott the Washington trip.
