    I know the OP was looking for peeves about the team but I don't really have any.
    I do have issues with this fan site though. I used to be a regular here and you can see by my post count that I contributed. I come back occasionally to see if things have changed and to add a comment or two.
    My biggest peeve is the constant hand-wringing and wailing about the team, the coaches and the front office. I thought this was a fan site? Maybe being a fan has changed but I've always thought fans look for bright spots.
    I have no problem with someone questioning this or that but there are posters here who are routinely negative and vocal and it has completely destroyed what I used to enjoy about coming here.
    I've had an opposing view with just about everyone here but in the end I try to remain somewhat positive.
    Perhaps it's just age and perspective, older posters try to tell younger posters how miserable it was in the 70's and 80's but nobody wants to hear. We didn't have places like this to talk about the Packers but I can tell you with vivid clarity that we didn't complain about every little detail. It was a successful season if they beat the Bears. And we cherished and enjoyed every season.
    I guess it just seems like some posters here are spoiled little brats and don't understand that stomping your feet and yelling will not bring the Lombardi Trophy home.
    If you can't find joy in these last 20 years of Packer football I don't know what to tell you. Maybe you should root for another team but guess what? There's a very short list of franchises who have enjoyed the success this one has.
    Thanks for listening and thank you to those posters who know how much you've added to my enjoyment of the Packers. I looked forward to some posts so much that I was a daily visitor to see what you had to say.
    I miss you folks but I can't stomach rifling through all the negativity to get to a solid football post.

    The numbers of severely innebbriated people that they allow into the stadium for late afternoon and night games.
    They wand you for nuclear weapons and AK47's but they let these louts that can't hit the ground with their hat in to ruin somebodies football experience.

    That once was me. Flew down to Arizona for a Packer game and time with one of my brothers. We drank quite a few beers out in the hot sun and then went into the game and had more. While trying to stand up during the game, I fell onto the family of four in front of us. I felt terrible but that's also my only memory of the game to this day. Not only did I ruin someone else's day, but I spent all of that money on flights, tickets, and everything else but couldn't remember a darn thing.

    I stopped drinking for several months to make sure there wasn't a problem. In the end, my problem was thinking that excessive alcohol was adding to the fun. While it can enhance experiences sometimes, I was seeing first-hand how it could detract.

    I don't know if being stopped at the door would have had the same effect on my life, but it probably would have helped that family of four enjoy the game a lot more!

    Big ol' +1 on that.

    I've only been to a couple of Packer games at Lambeau. I have never seen so many severely drunken people in my entire life. Including the young lady who insisted that I assist her in finishing her entire bottle of "vokka" before we got into the stadium, then proceeded to spend the first half of the game climbing all over me until I had to SCREAM at her "GTF OFFA ME". I'm serious. Then she spent the second half telling everbody nearby that I was a homosexual. She stunk of cigarettes and "vokka".

    I drink more beer than most other five men combined but I've never been stinkin' drunk like that in public. Nor have I ever dumped an entire beer on the pretty lady in front of me like the guy next to me did. I guess I'll just stay at home and watch the games on teevee.

    *sigh*

    I can also guarantee that the amount of information available to fans in the 70s and 80s was far less than what is available now. How is this pertinent? Let's take Chris Clemons (ex-Dolphins safety) as an example. In the 80s, I would have had no clue who this guy was, whether he was a free agent or not (ignoring the lack of free agency back then) and whether he was any good or not. Today though, I have all that information at hand so there's quite a bit more that fans can exress their opinion upon. My opinion differs from other posters. Naturally, when two people express their opinions their is a discussion. Now the unfortunate part is that many posters resort to name calling and insults rather than simply discussing things but that's just human nature everywhere. Long story short (I know, too late for that now), I don't think fans are any different today than they were thirty years ago; there's just a TON more information available and more ways for fans to interact. In the 70s you basically had to hang out with your friends to discuss the Packers so of course the discussions were much more low-key and optimistic, if they weren't fun discussions then they either wouldn't be your friend or you'd stop talkin to them about the Packers.

    1.Season Ticket holders who sell their seats to non-fans.
    2.Season Ticket holders who could care less about having tickets because they were passed on to them and just sell them for $$$$$$$
    3.The fact I don't live closer to Green Bay.

    Excellent point.

    From my experiences interacting with other fan bases, Green Bay has about as good of fan base as there is. Any generation is going to have the know-it-alls. It's just a numbers game -- you have that many fans, and there's going to be many different kinds of them.

    It's definitely true that the increased availability of information has a lot to do with the increased interaction and debate between fans. I'm sure that if the Packer fans of the 70's had access to the internet and Packer forums and some computer knowledge, they'd be doing the same things that many Packer fans today are.

    It's like when people think that there's so much more violence in the world today than there was 20 years ago. There's not; in fact there's less, but what there is today gets plastered in our faces.

    People who leave games way too early. Had a couple behind me this season who left at halftime.

    Or people who leave near the end when it's still a close game.

    Wasn't there a Miami Heat game the other year that looked like a blowout, but turned into a great game where the fans that had left were literally banging on the doors to get back in but were not allowed?

    I usually just chuckle at those folks, paying all that money for a game and then being more worried about traffic than anything else. Suckers. I generally mill around in the stadium later, soaking up what my hard earned dollars paid for me to enjoy.

    That brings back good memories of the Dallas game last year. Everything in me wanted me to turn it off but one thing and holy smokes was it worth it.

    It wasn't a blowout, but it didn't really look like the Heat had a chance to win. The fans left when there was about 5-10 seconds left, and weren't allowed to come back in when they saw the Heat tied it up.

    1. The cheesehead hat. It looks ridiculous, not to mention, incredibly stupid.
    2. Going to a game and sitting behind a moron who is wearing a cheesehead hat.
    3. The fact that too few people, think of using the cheesehead hat as a toilet. They should.
    4. Fans who still wear their Favre jersey. Please. Stop. Wait another 20 years or something.
    5. Eh, that's about it.

    Seconded. Such acrimonious conduct reflects poorly on those fans, makes them seem small.

    It's just business--business that is destroying the game. Trying to pay for billions of air time by selling billions in ads is just part of it. Mark Cuban is wrong about a lot of things, but his prediction that the NFL will implode over overexposure may well be proven correct.

    Yeah, that.
    It's like Mike wants the Packers to be polite and not run up the score or to even try to keep the ball till the clock runs out.
    OK, let's do some running plays even though we are 1-20, give the ball back to the team with 5 minutes left with our 3 point lead because we want to play fair.
