Three players of the 1972 Miami Dolphins refused to meet with President Obama
Four decades later in 2013, the team was invited by President Barack Obama to visit the White House. This occurred on August 20, where Obama noted that the team "never got their White House visit".

As to why this team had not been invited by President Richard Nixon in 1973, Larry Csonka stated that he did not feel neglected as it had not been a regular occurrence at the time. However, MSNBC reported that this was a deliberate snub by Nixon who was a Redskins fan.

Obama had previously invited the '85 Bears to the White House, as their visit had gotten cancelled due to the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. President Obama, a Chicago native and Bears fan, had called them the greatest team ever, but during the Dolphins' visit he called his own words into question, also noting that the only loss the '85 Bears had was to the Dolphins.

Bob Kuechenberg, Jim Langer, and Manny Fernandez all refused to attend due to political differences with the Obama administration.

You'll remember this is the only NFL team in history to win the Super Bowl with a perfect record, their record that year 17-0.

Wow, how in the hell did they do that?

Bob Kuechenberg was inducted into the American Football Association's Semi Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1986.

In 2013, President Barack Obama honored the entire 1972 Perfect Season Dolphins at an event in the White House, but Kuechenberg declined to attend for political reasons.

He told sports columnist Dave Hyde of Ft. Lauderdale's Sun-Sentinel "I want to be careful, because mom said if you have nothing good to say about someone, then don't say anything. I don't have anything good to say about someone."
