    Wasn't Lambeau a dismal stadium in the 80's? a 30 year old facility that had never been upgraded. I am sure he was referring to the locker rooms and press box, which is where he lives.

    He's a keeper in my book. He tells it straight which is more that can be said for a lot of reporters.

    Maybe it's just me but I don't understand why this thread is getting so much traction. :confused:

    I just randomly clicked on other football team's websites to compare or to see if they had an equivalent of "Ask Vic."
    Only one I could see was the Broncos. But it wasn't very obvious.
    Seems like he really goes overboard. The "Ask Vic" dominates the top of the website before scrolling down.
    You go down and you will see plenty of videos, blogs and a featured gallery.
    Those are the things that should be speaking up for the Packers.
    Not some unsettled guy who isn't from the area who complains about the cold every year and not a true Packers fan.

    I'd much rather see player hosted segments like "The Real Rob Report" that Michael Robinson did when he was with the Seahawks.

    The guy knows his football, no questioning that, but the ornery smart alec needs to work on his people skills, and he's still a Prinzer and a Steelers fan at heart. I still enjoy a lot of parts of his column, but Spofford will take over soon enough, and those will be much better days. He's not quite ready yet though.

    LOL. Sure they are. They're paying Vic Ketchman to denigrate the 50+ year old shrine that is Lambeau field by referring it to as dismal. Nice try.

    If the corporation were to be as obtuse and sardonic as Ketchman is they would no doubt lose the current sterling reputation that it currently has.

    Do you think maybe it's because it is one of the few places remaining to get Packer news for free online? Press Gazette and Journal Sentinel are both behind pay wall.

    Check out the other teams sites. Packers are by far the best. They have had the best site years before Vic joined them.

    What I am saying is that people are going to Packers.com for team news, injury updates, and multimedia highlights from the game. The hack which is the subject of this thread has likely little significance as to the popularity of the website.

    That is a matter of opinion.
    I'm sure that each fan of each team will think that his/her team's site is the best.
    Thing I noticed when comparing is that the Packers have an old school vibe while other teams feel modern. And I think those reflect in the website.
    The Eagles
    http://www.philadelphiaeagles.com/
    is real slick looking while the Packers
    http://www.packers.com/index.html
    just looks more humble or laid back. Which is how I like it.
    And the Packers is the only one I've seen so far which has a background picture of it's fans.

    I think Vic Ketchman is winsome.

    We have all of those things. But it's nice to get some small amount of feedback from someone slightly less tight lipped. I always thought of him as a media liaison type. Someone connected to the franchise the fans could "talk" to.

    As I said, he's not ready yet. Vic reportedly gets a lot of information from Spofford though.

    What a dufus Vic Ketchman is!

    See this exchange

    Lou from Vancouver, WA

    Vic, where was B.J. Raji[​IMG] on that fourth-and-inches call?

    If Raji had fumbled, the national media and a lot of Packers fans would be asking: You have a running back that rushed for 103 yards and averaged 7.9 yards per carry and with the game on the line you give the ball to your nose tackle? We need to come to balance.

    HELLLLOOO Vic? Lou didn't say Raji was going to carry the ball. Maybe he wanted him to be the lead blocker. Vic's passive aggressive bunk is an embarrassment for the Packer franchise. I'd like to see him answer a question without being pompous as much as he is. In this case he doesn't do the question justice. Instead of bringing the possibility that the questioner may have had another angle on the thought he went into ridicule mode.

    And just what does, "we need to come to balance" mean. Sounds like a putdown yet again.

    If it is indeed there is nothing more shameless than posing on a forum to artificially inflate your status. :tdown:
