    Packers Sign LB Simpkins - WAOW - Newsline 9, Wausau News, Weather, Sports

    With Josh Bell being relegated to the I.R., the Packers were able to sign one more player to the roster. Maurice Simpkins played ILB for the Green Bay Blizzards for the Indoor Football League. It's interesting that the Packers chose to sign an ILB. Maybe they plan to move him outside or make the Chillar to OLB permanent.

    Well let's just hope he can show something in the preseason. It's tough because the first game is this Sunday and the guy will only have a limited amount of time to get the playbook down.

    It is alot better than the other forum

    Sure the point man or puppet is to busy with grammar queen focus via a New Yorker with a poor attitude to people posting for the first time. I feel welcomed here and I just have a problem with someone slamming on a poster or posters with faster than normal typing skills and just forgot to proof read posts. I was reading posts on this other forum to get a feel of how posts are welcomed and this investment point man posing as a management dictator for another forum rubs me the wrong way. Sure than the rest jump on these posters that might have a problem communicating on "professional forums" via rookie status. Give them a chance. I am on alot of International Forums and these self-proclaimed grammar queens communicate to many nouns to make a wanna bee "better than the other posters" rant. Were not all perfect so give people a chance. Right? ( I like to stand up for people and there right to communicate if invited):happy0005:

    Arena football is a really fun game to go and watch from what I have been told.
