    The other thread is three pages long and way off topic. It'd be silly to post this there.

    Yea, I don't if I'd want to stay in a town that I felt was singling me out :( Atleast maybe Hodge can take his place??

    Yeah, I hope so if need be...still think there's room for both Hodge and Barnett on the field at the same time though.

    I think the LB corps with Hawk, Hodge, and Barnett would make it one of the NFL's best in a few years...

    Re: Green Bay mayor to ask council to reconsider Barnett’s

    Every town-city, has problem bars, thats the nature of the beast!
    When you start singling out the owner for such minor stuff as "jaywalking",
    then I think the powers that be have a problem beyond what ever is happening at the bar.
    To me this is a very disturbing turn of events in Green Bay.

    On another forum, someone is claiming that this is not a race issue, and I was taken to task because I firmly believe that it is. Someone had mentioned that if Nick was white this wouldn't have happened. I said that Nick is half white and half black, and all he double toothpicks broke out. As I have probably said before, I have been on two cruises with Nick, and you couldn't find a nicer guy--excluding my husband of course. I certainly hope this doesn't turn Nick off of Green Bay so that he won't come back.

    hang in there, carol k!! the difference between YOU & those other fans (me included) is that we have never actually met the guy. you spent time with him & felt strongly that he's a good guy - stick to your guns & give 'em h e l l right back, if you need to!

    i am far removed from the situation & don't feel it would be right for me to comment on it. too bad more people don't feel the same way, huh? :wink:

    I'm also far removed from the situation but I did have a situation where I met Nick Barnett. He came to North Dakota this last spring because a little girl won the "bring an NFL player to school" contest.

    He came to Bismarck and brought 500 jerseys with him...I knew he was coming so I got to go and see him. He was a class act the whole time and gave me the impression that he's a top notch guy on and off the field.

    Take it for what it's worth, I guess.

    Yet no one considers the fact that if Nick were white there is a good probablility the liquor license would still have been revoked.

    Maybe the real problem is Nick is being treated just like anyone else.

    What would you guys be saying about race if you knew the owner of HipCats was black? Would you still be harping racism then? HipCats is a night club of sorts right accross the street from the cop shop and has very similar problems, yet they had their license renewed.
    The difference, the owner is not a celeb.

    Nick Barnett is a celeb, that's why he's targeted. Everyone wants to play the race card. People think Nick is spoiled and will get his way because he is RICH he is a PACKER ... everyone would rather place blame on racism. It's disgusting.

    I'm not saying racism doesn't exist, I know unfortunately it does, perhaps it plays a small role in this BS with Nick, but its not anywhere near his celeb status that is causing this stupid drama for him and his club.

    I have not yet met Nick, he sounds like a great guy, I hope to meet him sometime and learn the same as others have. But this is not all about race. Those who think it is need to dig deeper for information and learn thats not the only factor and surely is not the largest factor in the stupidity of the community's decision to nullify his license renewal.

    I would add if that were the case (1) Club Five-Six never would have been allowed to open in the first place and (2) Club Five-Six would have been shut down and not just have the liquor license revoked.

    Maybe if people read the police reports of incidents related to the club it would make more sense as to what is really going on.
