    I am not an insider member. Unfortunately I got hooked with the opening paragraph that they allow us commoners to read.

    The article is referring to why we have problems getting players into GB.

    Thanks.

    I think Harry Sydney is Chases' nom de plume. I sometimes wonder whether Harry even watches the damn games, but here goes.

    Harry Sydney is only being honest and telling the truth about the Packers situation.

    It is negative because there are big problems in Green Bay.

    Sydney is full of it. The big names stayed away because of one reason, no cap room. We, thereofre, didn't have available cap room to overpay free agents.

    It's also the case that, in recent memory at least, big name free agent signings have had a tendency not to work out for the Packers so that's a pretty good reason for not making any.

    You don't build a team in the salary cap era through free agent signings, as MS learned, you do it through the draft. It's right to be skeptical about free agency.

    Sydney doesn't seem too negative on the Radio show. He points out facts and states why and sometimes how to resolve them.
