    It seems that to get the most replies, start a "hate" thread vs an "I love the Packers" one.
    I've noticed that the majority will respond to Favre and things related to announcers that seem like they don't like our team.
    Fire Capers Now is also a popular topic.
    I figure that's the way the world works.
    Say or do something right. Nothing.
    Say or do something wrong and you will hear from everybody.
    I'd rather if it was the other way around. More replies for positive things.
    I'm not pointing any fingers. I've taken part in sharing my thoughts in negative ways as well.
    Oh well. It is what it is and just wanted to share my observations about this place.

    You mean like daring to suggest that Matthew Stafford and the Lions offense was not good enough to win this division and we have more than enough history to prove that?

    ... or 4,000 posts attempting to prove every other team in the NFL has played and beat better teams than the Packers and the Packers haven't done squat to prove anything yet?

    Why no, no I have not noticed that at all.:roflmao:

    Controversy is what keeps a forum active, and kumbaya isn't likely to do that. I'm as upset with "+1", "good post", and other "me too" comments as you are with folks defending their turf. Don't know if it's allowed to say this here, but if you want only the good, try Packerchatters - I was recently banned for life. :)

    Maybe you should take your own advice and post more positive dialog.

    "Fire Finley" or "Finley is great"; either was good for 500 posts.

    "This team isn't going anywhere" after 2 games or "this game is over" with 10 mins left in the 1st quarter sometimes makes a shoutbox appearance.

    it does appear that some packer fans can't handle the truth that this is a pretty good team.

    I lost track of him.
    What happened?
    Did he settle for the millions of insurance money or still working on a comeback?

    I think he for sure was picked up by another team because the Packers didn't sign him. Well, at least that's what we were told was going to happen this off season.

    I liked him and felt bad for him and was hoping he could make a comeback in GB.

    Dont you and a few others come up with "clever" names for players

    airrun
    failfarve
    brent
    crappernick

    Not saying its a problem or anything like that..But I know there are some that think it is immature and just dont say anything. Wouldnt the name calling fall under the same principle?

    For sure...me as well.

    ...but as is often the case with a select few Packer fans, they assumed the worst from the Packers organization and assumed the Packers weren't handling it right.

    Clearly the fact that he's not playing tells us all we need to know about that.

    I have no idea what you are going on about, me-love-you-longtime(fan)! LOL :D

    OK but seriously.
    First there is this:
    (This album is full of great songs than just the ones that got Mtv and radio airplay and this is one of them.)



    Well, I did cop to it that I have taken part in being negative as well around here.
    And when I change a name, such as BrINT Fail or Crapperknickers, it's because I'm not too happy with things they do and it's me being passive/aggressive.
    As for Air-Run Rodgers, that is a way to be complimentary of his skills and I was hoping that clever usage of his name would catch on.

    You, LTF, wrote: "I know there are some that think it is immature and just dont say anything."
    If no one is saying anything then how do you know that some think it's immature? Are you getting PMs about it?
    And if it is being seen as being negative that is all a matter of perspective.
    I suppose it is a way of being negative but it would go along with the rest of the post. I doubt I'd write, "BrINT Fail was really awesome when he won that Super Bowl for us, wasn't he?"
    It's just a part of who I am or the way I express myself and those who don't like it or think I'm being immature are probably those who like the one I'm attacking.
    I'll confess with the risk of backlash: I'm 47, soon to be 48, going on 16!
    I'd rather be or feel young at heart than to be feeling my age especially in my body while being fine with the number of my age.
    Grow up? Well, what fun would that be?

    I like puppies.




    I hate puppies and will punt everyone I see over the nearest telephone pole.




    which statement above stirs you the most emotionally thereby stimulating a response? You are battling human nature.
