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.

Kevin is there a way to see your very first post on here? I am curious to see what mine was lol. Probably something like Ted Thompson sucks and so does Mike McCarthy and why the hell aren't we drafting a wr.



Nevermind this only goes back to 2010 and imagine that Imy first comment was on nonstops boobs thread lol
Just Imagine this for the next 6-9 years. What a ride it will be 🙂

Zero2Cool (3h) : Jerry Jones said Mike McCarthy will call the plays and a version of the offenses he ran in Green Bay will be coming to Dallas.
Zero2Cool (4h) : We agree. 😁
Zero2Cool (4h) : lol me too man, I said it last year as well. YOU SEARCH IT BRUH!!!

Zero2Cool (6h) : dhazer, thanks for reading my comments, appreciate it. care to repeat anything else I said? MR ECHO!!!!! (only teasing, work is slow, leave me alone)
dhazer (6h) : Well Rodgers wont retire now as Brady just announced his retirement. As i stated Rodgers ego wont allow him to be an opening act at the HOF ceremony
Zero2Cool (6h) : But yes, the location is likely because he has numerous friends in the area for Suspended Sunrise Recordings.
Zero2Cool (7h) : Rodgers does not have a house in/around Nashville. He allegedly bought land.
beast (7h) : Also, Rodgers already has a house around Nashville (I believe for his Music Record Business)
beast (7h) : With AFC Contender will offer the most for Rodgers? Jets is the logical answer, BUT Dolphins seem to be going all in, and Titans have been interested in Rodgers and really.use an upgrade
Zero2Cool (8h) : Tom Brady retires. Rodgers playing in2023. prediction
go.pack.go. (8h) : Well Leonhard was offered the DC job before Barry was hired. So it’s not unrealistic
buckeyepackfan (8h) : Brady officially retires "FOR GOOD"! Aaron will definately play 1 more year. But where?
beast (19h) : He's only coached one place... you usually don't go straight to a coordinator job unless an owner loves you (Jeff Saturday to head coach style)
Mucky Tundra (20h) : Saints get a 2023 1st rounder and a 2024 2nd rounder and give up Payton and a 2024 3rd rounder
Mucky Tundra (20h) : Looks like Sean Payton is going to Denver
Zero2Cool (21h) : You ask me a question and shows you didn't read fully what I said. Not nice!
Martha Careful (22h) : He would be a pro DC candidate
beast (23h) : DC job in college... but probably not in the pros.
go.pack.go. (31-Jan) : Why would Leonhard want to come be a secondary coach when he could probably get a DC job somewhere else?
Zero2Cool (31-Jan) : If Jerry Gray leaves, fill the void with Jim Leonhard. Then if Joe Barry flounders, you got your replacement. Win-Win
Zero2Cool (31-Jan) : Packers’ Elgton Jenkins named to 2023 Pro Bowl in place of Eagles’ Landon Dickerson
Zero2Cool (30-Jan) : $17 million OVER the set Salary Cap for 2023. Sweet.
RickLM (30-Jan) : I'll give you the Chiefs and the Bengals, but despite the Niners kicking our ass - we've achieved what they have in the last few years
nerdmann (30-Jan) : With these young receivers, I'm not sure the Packers dropped off, maybe dipped a little until Dec.
nerdmann (30-Jan) : Cap will be $224.8 this year.
Zero2Cool (30-Jan) : Did they surpass the Packers, or have the Packers fallen off? It's not like Packers got 13 wins and those teams got 14 a piece.
packerfanwayoutwest (30-Jan) : you forgot the Lions
bboystyle (30-Jan) : Team like the Niners, Chiefs, and now Bengals have surpass the Packers. Its frustratng to see
Zero2Cool (30-Jan) : I KEED, I KEED!!! ... or ... am I?
Zero2Cool (30-Jan) : Officials just said there will be a do-over, game to be replayed in Atlanta.
packerfanwayoutwest (30-Jan) : Congratulations to the referee crew - the AFC Championship MVP.
Zero2Cool (30-Jan) : MVS accepted the highest contract offer, fortunately, it was with a damn good team with a BRILLIANT head coach. I love Andy Reid.
Zero2Cool (30-Jan) : I was pulling for Eagles/Bengals and Bengals winning. I despise the knoblicking Chiefs team
go.pack.go. (30-Jan) : MVS made the right decision to ditch Green Bay
umair_010 (30-Jan) : That game yesterday was clearly rigged by the refs. I had no investment in either team winning.
Martha Careful (30-Jan) : Bengal defense is really strong. Chiefs have run out of ideas and receivers'
buckeyepackfan (30-Jan) : Nobody saw or heard the ref. Stop the play.
buckeyepackfan (30-Jan) : Wow then def hold. Bengals got screwed. Have to see if it hurts
buckeyepackfan (30-Jan) : WTF do over?
nerdmann (30-Jan) : MVS lighting it up tonight.

Mucky Tundra (29-Jan) : Eagles punch it in from the 1 and that should be game
Mucky Tundra (29-Jan) : Purdy back in the game for the 49ers
TheKanataThrilla (29-Jan) : And you couldn't think things could get worse for the 49ers?
Mucky Tundra (29-Jan) : Brutal stretch for 49ers: give up a TD inside the 2 minute warning, fumble on the next possession with another Philly TD
Mucky Tundra (29-Jan) : 49ers down to their 4th string QB Josh Johnson
beast (29-Jan) : I've wonder if something in the background didn't look great or if someone bad mouthed him... otherwise, I don't know why he dropped. Maybe, just maybe they didn't see him as a starter nor ST stud?
beast (29-Jan) : Also, he has played some passing down DT... he's very physical, very long, extremely smart hand usage and great effort... just not the most athletic.
Mucky Tundra (29-Jan) : He also has long arms which teams like on their edge players
