    Greetings good citizen. We Packers fans feel your pain. Hopefully things get better for the both of us.

    As for Bolttalk, I'm not sure what's going on but we tend to have issues when we get a high amount of web traffic. Perhaps you can send Robdog a PM or I will actually send one for you as you may not be able to.

    Haha that statement just proves your a little touchy feely. As far as the "owner" statement being honorary, i remember a huge rebuttal when a Viking or bear fan came in here stating the same thing. I know what it is. As minute as it is i find pride in being able to say "my" team. You win tho congrats

    I was hoping for a third party perspective. I checked out a couple of the closed threads. Scott Tolzien was a Charger and many of us thought he was better than Charlie Whitehurst... (clipboard Jesus). I noticed lots of banned posters. What was that about?

    What do you mean that wasn't your question?
    That is the title of this thread and it is a question that you posted.
    They won. We lost.
    Why make it more than that?

    I'm very much not happy about the loss. But there is little we can do about it. It happened, on to the next game. I'd like to see Capers go as I do feel that he is part of the problem, though not all of it. But that subject already has its own thread.

    Well I did. It had something to do with Seneca Wallace being the black guy. Wasn't banning the offenders enough? I still don't get why you closed the thread or banned the posters.

    Good luck with that. He a troll who shows up every couple of months to trash the organization for not running our roster like a fantasy football team, and never ever offers up anything bordering a realistic scenario for improvement.

    If you were as talented as you like to think you are, then you'd be working for one of the NFL's 32 pro teams.... Until then, you might consider just...

    Unfortunately I can't say it as my post will get edited.

    Eh, usually we're OK, though we certainly have our share of turds in the punch bowl.

    Yeah.. My post would be considered a personal attack, which is rightly frowned upon.

    We just suffered an embarrasing loss to the Fish. The Bolt faithful seem rather comatose this evening. You guys are 5-5 and only one win off the division lead. This is pretty heady stuff compared with our lot in the AFC West.

    So I am a bit surprised the mood is so negative here.

    I just mentioned to one of your mods that when it happens at Bolttalk you don't only get an infraction. This whole pack (no pun) of mods shows up and commends each other with "likes" "winners" "agrees" and the such. I is really quite distasteful. I was wondering if the same happens here.

    A better talent evaluator, huh? Here's what this poster had to say about one of the Packers' draft picks in the 2009 draft:
    (I added the underlines.) You all no doubt recognize this brilliant analysis was posted after the "embarrassing" draft pick of Clay Matthews. And it’s not a big deal to be wrong about a player, but he was so arrogantly wrong it is difficult to ignore. And as I've posted before, we know at least one person embarrassed by the Matthews' pick.

    BTW, have you ever noticed that people who have broadcast how smart, successful, etc. they are turn out not to be? Again, not a big deal but I’ll bet most of the braggadocio in the OP is BS.

    I meant that you were the only one that expressed hope (that I recall) here on this board. I was not referring to the team. Just us arm-chair coaches and GMs here on this board...

    Welcome, Sandolf.

    We are a bit negative right now because we lost only hours ago. And, we have been quite spoiled for a long time in that we usually win games. Losing is something foreign to this team-- especially losing in streaks-- and even more in that two of these last three losses came at home. We also are not used to having to deal with backup QBs seeing that only a few have started beyond Favre and Rodgers in the last fricking twenty years.

    So, forgive ourselves while we cry for a while. :cry:

    Spot on.

    If/When we ever start to go back to our winning ways then we will feel like drinking the beer instead of crying into it.

    It is in no way negative to be down on the team at this time.
    Instead it is being realistic and present.

    Look at my avatar the Cyclones in football are 1-9 and I hold out hope they'll finish on a good note, same with the Packers. Real fans don't throw in the towel after a few tough losses they stay true through hell or high water. Fans though shouldn't be demonized for questioning the franchises motives of why they sign him or let that player go. They're professionals they know what they're doing and they've got to run it like a business.

    However though the very fact that you've never been part of a losing team questions you're loyalty and willingness to tough it out that you're not going to "jump ship" because of a sub .500 record. There are many people here who've seen the worst of the Packers through out the 70s and 80s, and even more that have rejoiced in the success of the past 20+ years, throwing in the towel because of the past three weeks shows weakness and labels you as a fair-weather fan, Packer fans real one's aren't fair-weather or never give up hope, even if all hope is lost. We are a few in a league of 32 teams and millions of fans, most of these teams and their "fans" are nothing but made up of 70% fair-weather and bandwagon. Unlike those other teams and their fans spotting those types pretending to be Pack fans is easy because at the first sign of trouble or continued trouble they're gone.

    Do prove to those doubters wrong that you aren't about to jump off a ship that has a few holes, but isn't sinking.
