There is also a difference between having and voicing an opinion and debating, and being a schmuck and dominating multiple threads with the same idea.

To many thread become pissing contests. If that is where they go, I know how to work my zipper and have enough time to waste. But it shouldn't be that difficult to discuss and disagree and be civil at the same time.

Don't forget, if rules end up being instituted it is because somebody or somebodies cause it to happen by their actions.



Exactly. The ad nauseam discussion makes me visit the site less than I otherwise would. Not implying that means anything, but still.

I miss the "old days" too.
Back then, you could disagree with someone, on almost ANYTHING, and you could agree to disagree without being in fear of being called nasty names.
I have stated on some things where my belief in the Bible as God's word has ended up with me being called horrible names. Even though I believe I explained my position clearly, without judging anyone. Just calling sin what it is called in the Bible, sin.
I don't think that makes me a horrible person.

Or my feelings on being a conservative.
I don't say that no one has a right to be a liberal, or hold those beliefs. That's what makes America the best country. We have been given the right to have and voice our opinions.
Respect has to go both ways. That is something that used to be the "norm" here. I wish it would return to that.

I have disagreements with some here, and I don't hate any of them. If I met them face to face, I'd probably hug them and be as happy as heck to meet them in person.
I think that's one major flaw in the internet. Not being able to SEE who you are talking with, and actually HEAR what, and HOW they are saying something.
On the other hand, without it, I would have lost out on some wonderful things. Like the Wii that you guys bought for me after my open heart surgery. It has brought me so many hours of enjoyment. I think about you guys (and gals) that did this for me every time I use it. And can you believe, in 5 days it will be SEVEN YEARS since my heart surgery!!!
And I got the privilage of meeting Kevin (Zero) when he drove down to deliver and set it up for me!
THANK YOU AGAIN!!!

It's called knowing the body of work of the poster. You actually take the time to read the novels written by Uffda, Barfarn, or Wade? You have that kind of time on your hands?

Every once in a while, I'll humor myself and read one of Wade's novels and if dissatisfied, I let him have it. Otherwise, that's skimming material.

I love it when Barfarn gives a good solid analysis, even if it goes long. That shit's packed full of information.

At the end of the day this is a great place to come and be with Packer fans. There is no place I would rather be on game-day (except Lambeau). Is it perfect? No and that is why it is real. It will never be perfect because we all bring our own baggage to the table with us. Mine is writing proper English and adding "u" where they are suppose to go, and not going ape-shit when I see defence or Offense like the site's spell-check. Sometimes people cross the line, but I hope as a true family we try and keep peace rather than cast people away. I enjoy learning from other people and I learn more about the game and my team every time I come to visit. I don't think we need more rules, just an understanding that we treat others with respect even if we disagree with them. I recognize some really good fans walked away from this site. That sucks. Whether it was in the football page or the Babble section I am not clear of the reason. Personally I never understood walking away, but to each their own. I wish they would come back and just talk football and ignore the people that pissed them off. Different opinions add value to the site and we all learn from looking at thing differently. Just because somebody pisses you off doesn't mean they are not adding value to your life.

edit: Hahaha this site actually auto-corrects offence.

edit2: not sure how it got spelled correctly the second time and not the first.

That's true, Kantilla. Sometimes things people say here actually makes me change my mind. Other times, it makes me more sure that what I thought was correct.
Either way, it gives you the opportunity to question your self and make you actually THINK!

As a guy who feels like an outsider, I can tell you one of the worst things about any forum is the cliques that are well formed turning off any and all new posters. This is one of the reasons 68md likes the word "troll". That word protects the clique from the opinions of outsiders and creates a herd mentality and feeding frenzy against the new unwanted visitor. Now, this only applies to new members who have a dissenting point of view. If the new poster is perfectly in line, and often they become that way because they lurk for awhile to see what is acceptable and what isn't. What you get left with is a forum like 68md's...it's a cult of sameness. I was there and unwelcome because I had 180 views from their clique membership. Of course, I just had to be a troll because I didn't like Davante Adams, wasn't high on TT, etc. and they didn't want to hear it. I was a troll and beat a dead horse but had I said positive things about Davante, TT, etc...there would've been no dead horse beat. That only comes up when the opinion is unpopular. When something unpopular is posted ONCE is enough for the clique board who doesn't appreciate such expressions. Any further expression of your "negative" opinion is beating a dead horse. I have seen this ridiculousness played out on any fan board everywhere I've ever been.

People should always feel free to express themselves on a forum, but, alas, this is "someone's" forum that they built and that real person behind it has leanings and ideas that sometimes make it hard for a new person to feel welcome. I've always hated that about ANY type of forum. This one does the best job of allowing free expression but it goes through periods where the rank and file are reporting posts like crazy and then the site creator feels compelled to act because his long and trusted clique of members isn't liking what is being posted to them. That clique only wants those who are like minded and ultimately the person who brings a different perspective is banished and the board celebrates as if it's rid itself of some evil when the real evil is the idea that everyone should see things the same. Makes for a really, really, really bad and uninteresting board. A feel good buddy club...like sitting at Cheers talking to Woody or Sam. There's only so many barstools to go around and there ain't one reserved for a dissenter.

Honestly, that is why I think there should be a subforum for members who aren't the typical fan type. To me, it just makes good sense. It isn't saying one group is better than another rather it's acknowledging the truth that doesn't want to be acknowledged...that there is a strong bent for ONE type of fan and opinion here. That's great. It's not great when that is kept in the shadows and there's all this pretense that we're all the same ...we're all just fans nobody better than another. Absolutely. Nobody is better...BUT...there are groups who are DIFFERENT and those different type posters aren't truly welcome. Never have been, never will be...they are tolerated and never accepted until some moment where the tolerance wears thin and they are banished. This really needs to be acknowledged and admitted...that, in fact, this board does desire one type of opinion and that is of the Packers flattering variety. Now, Kevin I don't direct that at you, perse, but your membership overwhelmingly desires that and it puts you in a tough spot. I get it but let's be honest about what is wanted here. Guys like me gone.

If there was a forum for guys like Dakota and myself that is the only place I would post. I wouldn't even bother the Buckeyes of the world that swoon with every single thing this org does and praise it and spin it positively.

Kevin...heck, shoot me a PM. Let me know how much it would cost me to have you host a site for me. A place like Michael Rodney's PackersNotes would be good for me. I can just write pieces on my site and can leave commentary open below. That way, I'm and hopefully others like me are off your board where nobody really wants me/them anyway and the issue of harmony and feeling like a family comes back.

This is something that EVERYONE needs to work on, and I hope people take it to heart.

We all love the Packers. Like any other issue in the universe though, when you get a large group of people together, there's going to be a wide range of personalities, opinions, and as a result, issues. Everyone needs to do their part to make this COMMUNITY work.

This doesn't mean changing your opinion to match more popular ones
This doesn't mean saying only, or even primarily positive things about individual players, coaches, management, etc
This doesn't mean not confronting people in a constructive manner when you think they are incorrect and you are correct.

This DOES mean making a sincere attempt to take a step back and look at how you dish out criticism of members of the team/management, posters and their opinions. Debate is great, this website would be boring and largely pointless if we all agreed on everything and everyone got along great. But in order to have CONSTRUCTIVE debate, people need to be constructive when debating and arguing.

Keep personal attacks in any form out of things. Keep debate about the issues. If a particular poster annoys you to the point that he or she is impacting your ability to enjoy the site, and you're not able to ignore them, block them so you don't need to see their posts. You are not doing anybody any favors by fighting poor behavior with more poor behavior. You're not being adult-like, mature, clever, or noble by whining about individual posters in a public space. If they're breaking rules, report them. If they're just being dicks, ignore them. If you can't ignore them, block them.

Try to keep in mind that every poster on this website strongly believes that their opinion is correct. Just as you should be able to express your disagreement with other people's opinions, you should be able to acknowledge to yourself that your opinion may not be gospel. Keep an open mind, and give people the benefit of the doubt.


In my opinion, there's no ideal way to moderate a website. No matter what you do, people will have conflicts, people will get frustrated and leave. Mankind has been struggling with keeping peace in communities since the beginning, and it will be a struggle until the end of time. But we can all do our part to make this community work by trying to be more civil, EVEN IF OTHER PEOPLE ARE NOT.

dfosterf (9h) : Your answer made me laugh, though
dfosterf (9h) : You're right. Can't have a day of infamy speech and get the year wrong. Sept 27 2022. I was only off by 20 years. History would forgive me
Zero2Cool (10h) : Will.
dfosterf (11h) : You may. You really might. But this is my week, and I play Jersey Cheese this week, and he is a coward that doesn't have the courage to post here, so I rag you instead
Zero2Cool (11h) : Gutekunst says he's seen enough to know his decision on Jordan Love option. Says he's a starter in this league. Whew. Glad to hear that. Our run of dominance won't end!!

Zero2Cool (11h) : And yes, I probably will lose. Most likely. But if I win?? If?? OMG! I'm gonna put a banner up on the site for a year!
Zero2Cool (11h) : What the hell did I do when I was 22??
dfosterf (11h) : I looked on fleaflicker. I might be the only Mgr. that has Justin Jefferson and Davante Adams on the same fantasy football team on this planet.
dfosterf (11h) : Oh, and you are going down, young Kev, because on September 27, 2002, you fu^ked up.
dfosterf (12h) : Semi weekly rant done. Lol
dfosterf (12h) : Murphy has done wonders over his tenure as regards the Packers as a corporate entity. Anyone give much of a crap about that? I don't.
dfosterf (12h) : I would ask the coaches of the Packers who should run the show, and the vets, including yes, Aaron Rodgers
dfosterf (12h) : We need a true football guy to run this organization.
dfosterf (12h) : Mark Murphy sucks up to my examples. He is a corporate suck up. Impossible for the corporate bosses he sucks up to...to fire him.
dfosterf (12h) : Sargento has decent cheese. Get the hell out of decision making as regards the Green Bay Packers
dfosterf (12h) : Kohler family
dfosterf (12h) : It's worse than machine politics. Kohls builds crappers, not NFL football teams, as an example
dfosterf (12h) : They can start by getting rid of the whole Wisconsin booster club that encompasses our ownership representation
Zero2Cool (12h) : Fans whine they don't go all in. They go all in and fans whine about salary cap. See a trend? Fans whining. Packers win, ya all still whining. Spoiled asses.
dfosterf (12h) : Any idiot can make this non-profit team financially secure for any foreseeable future. We need brains to work with the cap. I don't see that
Zero2Cool (12h) : I don't think young HC is handling the massive personality at QB. Pretty positive the organization believed Rodgers would be out by now.
dfosterf (13h) : This organization must be all about winning. It is their job. Not tv's in the nosebleed sections. Not sledding hills outside the stadium. Not great experiences in Green Bay. Winning.
dfosterf (13h) : Unprecedented based on his first three years as a hc, but I have no problem firing MLF for this year.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Matt Lafleur on Romeo Doubs chances of returning after the bye week. "Ya I would think we'd get Rome back."
Zero2Cool (13h) : LaFleur says he’d like to get the ball to Christian Watson more but joked then he’d get criticized for not getting Aaron Jones more touches.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Matt LaFleur doesn't know a timetable for David Bakhtiari and his return. He was told that it could be awhile.
Zero2Cool (14h) : I think it'll be you vs me Week 15 to open playoffs.
dfosterf (15h) : Said so at the time, stickin to my story
dfosterf (15h) : All I know is that Joe Barry ain't it
Zero2Cool (15h) : I think trade deadline is over, so 49ers probably cannot get Brissett in 2022
Zero2Cool (15h) : Chargers miss playoffs, does Brandon Staley get fired? Come to GB as DC?
buckeyepackfan (15h) : 49rs should inquire about Jacoby Brissett.
buckeyepackfan (15h) : Browns signed the abuser to 5 year, 230mil Fully Guaranteed contract.
Zero2Cool (15h) : Ian Rapoport even mentions Baker to 49ers as backup. NFL has no memory whatsoever of crappy QB play. I blame Geno Smith
Zero2Cool (16h) : Baker wants to be released because he doesn't want to backup. So I mean. I dunno
yooperfan (16h) : A shout out to wayoutwest for his pick the winner prowess!
dfosterf (16h) : Apropos
yooperfan (16h) : It would be great all around if the Niners traded for Rodgers.
dfosterf (16h) : Zero logic? (Something apprapo in there somewhere) Josh Johnson or Baker Mayfield? That's what the 49ers are looking at with regards to a backup qb
TheKanataThrilla (17h) : Could Baker end up with the Ravens...at least for a few weeks?
Zero2Cool (17h) : I'm gonna lose my shit. Wait, nope, it's lost.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Browns took a guy who sexually assaults women over him!!!
Zero2Cool (17h) : The guy is terrible. Browns didn't want hkm
Zero2Cool (17h) : I must be the dumbest guy around. So many towing the Baker to 49ers line. The guy sucks! Why would 49ers want him? Zero logic.
Zero2Cool (17h) : Omg. Another dolt saying 49ers
dfosterf (17h) : 49ers almost have to pick him up
Zero2Cool (18h) : Panthers are expected to release Baker Mayfield
