The Green Bay Packers have long been known for as a classy organization. That image took a hit here locally in Arizona on Monday. Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Daryn Colledge, a member of the Packers championship squad did not get an invite to join his former teammates in Washington, DC at the White House when they got to meet President Barack Obama. 

Colledge talked to Kent Somers, who shared this conversationvia Twitter.

Said Colledge:

"It's a disappointing fact that they didn't even call guys that helped win to see if they wanted to join them. They said it was a logistics thing, but I believe I had the day off."

I personally do not know if this is a common occurrence that is just now becoming public because of Colledge. However, if the player is going to get a championship ring, he should at least get a call to see if he would like to make it to see the President -- after all, he was part of that team.

The good news is that, with a new five-year deal in his pocket with the Cardinals, he won't have to go through this again if he helps the Cards to dethrone the Packers and become this year's world champions. 

Sure, it's a long shot. But wouldn't it be cool?
