Former Miami Dolphin Bob Kuechenberg said he opted out of a White House salute to the team's 1972 winning season because he felt "our country is in grave danger, and I didn't want to be up there."

Kuechenberg said he would have attended for any other past president he could remember, but explained his absence was due to "the failed policies and failed results" of President Barack Obama's administration.



"Unfortunately, I fear that by 2016, the damage may be irreparable," Kuechenberg said Thursday on "Fox & Friends."

Kuechenberg was one of three members of the 1972 Dolphins who chose to skip an event Obama hosted Tuesday. The occasion celebrated the Dolphins as the only NFL team to have a perfect season. Due to the Watergate scandals, the Nixon administration chose not to hold a celebration to honor them at the time.

Calling himself a "lone wolf" and a "contrarian," the former Miami guard said he wasn't registered with any political party. Kuechenberg said he disagrees with Obama's policies "from foreign relations to failed policies, to just about everything that he's attempted."
