However, given that most of the players are liberals, I suspect that there is a bit of a double standard on the actions between conservatives and liberals. For example, let's say one of the conservative players from last 8 years refused to go to the White House when Obama was the President. Would the players have viewed this in a compassionate manner? For some reason, I am thinking that this might not have been the case.
So as long as these things are consistent, I don't care what the players do.
You have always had athletes skipping the white house visit. Bird didn't meet Reagan, Jordan skipped Bush sr and Brady snubbed Obama. This president is special though, you would not have the same talk if it was Kasich, Jeb or another conservative in the office.
