    Nah, that's why he has us to do that for him! ;)

    I support the motion to write letters of protest to Florio's boss.

    What do you guys think Lombardi would do if someone wrote a hit piece on his QB?

    I'm guessing nobody would find the body buried underneath the shadow of the goal post at Lambeau Field.

    Shhhh!
    That's where Jimmy Hoffa is.
    It was Giants stadium.
    But they had to move it before it got demolished.

    Ha, no. I mean, do you think he'd find the woman and sign her hat or anything? I'm sure his PR staff has all sorts of ideas.

    GB PR needs to invite the lady to Lambeau, have Rodgers give her a big sloppy kiss on the cheek, giver her a backrub, beg her forgiveness and give her season tickets for life (paid out of his paycheck).

    Then he needs to get his *** over to my house. The wood is STILL sitting there for God Sake! Nobody has touched it yet and it still needs to be chopped, and I mean all of it chopped up. Once he's finished with that, I got some drapes that need to be taken to the cleaners.

    I mean SERIOUSLY, Aaron needs to realize where his money comes from. And it's the fans!!! I'm a fan, so he better start earning it.

    I guarantee you Aaron signs everything in the airport the next time he gets on or off a plane. :icon_lol:

    Me? Well, I was reading without posting for a while (just felt like I ought not say what I was honestly thinking about some things, seeing that it's Brett's personal site and I don't want to fight with his fans about it), but the Packer/Rodgers bashing just got to where I didn't even want to do that.

    I don't know how the Packer fans who are left can stand it, to be honest.

    I AM glad to hear what you said about David standing up for Rodgers on this issue though. That was the right thing to do, and I'm glad he did it. I imagine it stopped the pecking (didn't SEE the pecking, but I can imagine it) pretty quickly.

    Good of you to point that out, too.

    So PFT removed your comment with this woman's quotes? Florio is taking a beating over there - I love how "he" became "we here at PFT think..." once he got the reaction he deserved. The updings/downdings in the comments section are very telling - you don't have to be a Packer fan to see the wrong that was done to Rodgers here, and a lot of other fans are speaking out too.

    We've got to make that happen. There needs to be a consequence of some kind for smearing an innocent person, and not being man enough to back the ---- off the story when you get called out on it.

    (I love your screen name, and what a great picture!)

    When I called, I asked Mr Florio, in my cutest little voice, if he'd sign my Hello Kitty hat. He turned me down. He hung up on me when I told him not to worry, I'm sure Aaron Rodgers would be more than happy to sign it. I'm very distressed.

    Since when was signing autographs to every person you see a job requirement to be the Packers QB? I honestly wouldn't give a crap if he had a no autograph policy. After the 800,000 one, I'd think your pretty damn sick of every person you meet wanting you to sign crap for them (and 1/2 of it ends up on Ebay or something for them to make a buck off of).

    He's not from Wisconsin. His out of W.Va and runs the blog profootballtalk.com under NBC's umbrella.

    He's a Viking Fan who is also a lawyer (so you get an idea of the person we are talking about).

    However, it was a local news channel that broke this story, or at least were the ones that put up the video that Florio used to rip Rodgers with.

    If there's anyone who can handle the media and the drama, I think it's Aaron Rodgers.

    Florio's probably not just a Vikings fan but a huge Favre butt-kisser. The thing is, every non-journalist in this country hates Florio. He's one of many, many idiot journalists (Peter King is another one, as a huge Steelers fan). Someone needs to start a "Fire Mike Florio" blog so that when his name is googled, that's what comes up.

    Actually Florio seemed to hate Farve. To be honest. I don't think he ever got over the fact he was an ex-Packer.

    I don't really care what Florio has to say. I think he's shown that he's going to stand by his opinion (no matter how unjustified it is). The guy is trash in my book, and he successfully alienated an entire fanbase.

    Florio posted an apology a couple minutes ago. He cites the article previously mentioned here as "opening his eyes". I'm new here or would post a link.
