    Just heard that the team will go to the White House on 12 August. This is the travel day before the preseason opener against Cleveland.

    I think it would be tough to fit them all in, but they should have been offered. Then again, where does it stop, does al harris get invited? Aaron Kampman? Pretty soon some redneck family from Kilm, MS is going to want to come.

    Its the Packers choice, and while its not what I would have done, Im okay with it.

    LOL. You crack me up, ivo.

    The big question is whether or not Barnett will tweet his displeasure that he wasn't invited.

    LOL. Most players wouldn't have been able to join anyways, but as an organization, I believe Packers should have extended the invite to anybody who was on the team during the season. Al Harris, sure. Kampman? no.

    In a Packer world it just seems like it should be the President who is excited about the opportunity he has to meet the reigning World Champion Green Bay Packers.

    It was actually pretty entertaining when Woodson gave Obama the gift. No go on that trade though, the Bears can have him in 10-15 years. No, wait, that's the Vikings.

    rules are rules. The secret service doesnt exactly bend them very often. Does anyone leave their house without ID on them very often?

    With as many attempts to the president's live (not this one, but to presidents as a whole) as have been, I don't think security should be lightly.

    And that's just logic, I'm not even from the US.

    Even though he was posting on twitter, and he looks the part, so it probably would be easy to identify if it's Bishop or not, but crazier things have happened.

    I feel for the guy, but rules are rules. Lesson learned.

    My god man...get a grip. Tell you something, I had the Secret Service disassemble my 35 mm SLR camera back in the 80's before entering an area where President Reagan was appearing. Bishop f'd up ... his loss...by the way, it's "martial" law...and, the security of the POTUS certainly takes precedence over Bishop's ability to meet a sitting POTUS - you can bet that the Office of Protocol made these requirements abundantly clear beforehand. If you've ever seen the helicopter gunships (4 of them) that accompany ANY Presidential motorcade movement, you'd be informed enough to remove your distinctly partisan driven post. Give it a rest, man.
