    I roll my eyes when any candidate brings up the Packers, good or bad. It's the modern version of kissing a baby. None of them are sincere. Rarely are they fans of the game or the particular team they are discussing, but they will harness their brand power when running for office.

    Fairly sure it is not just here and I know it isn't just politicians. Pretty much any entertainer that plays GB makes a Packer tie-in statement. Areas around GB usually get some type of Wisconsin tie in if not the Packers. Usually something asinine or generic. What to expect. They're entertainers not sports reporters. Just like all the celebrities that pack Lambeau during the NFC championship games.

    I'm the same way. I remember one political candidate a few years back talking about "historic Lambert Field" in an attempt to ingratiate himself to the Packer faithful. Obviously, a real fan.

    Politics belongs on another forum. Let's keep this one focused on what really matters - Packer football.

    Good point. The Adult Asylum section of this forum is a more appropriate place to discuss politics.

    Once you get past the platitudes and one liners, what do you have?

    With Lombardi, you have this (take 20 minutes if you've not absorbed these tapes previously):




    The Trump corollary? "Boys, we're going to build a wall. It will be a big wall, an excellent wall."

    I love hearing the terminology that is no longer used in modern football.

    I will help all of you out right now. ALL Politicians lie. Never trust any of them. You're welcome.

    P.S. PLEASE do not vote for Hillary Clinton. Thank you. LOL

    I'm going to stop this now before it gets into politics. I just feel this falling off the edge on the wrong side.
