I won't be on the chat today because I have realized I am a d&*^&*&d during Packer games.

I have reread some of my chats and they do not reflect who I want to be and how I want to convey myself. During the games, I somehow take the indescribably emotionally-stupid position that I should correct every (what I feel is an) erroneous opinion and that somehow, my opinions, unless proven otherwise, are correct and should be IMMEDIATELY ascribed to by all.

I take my frustrations out on people in the chat room, family, friends who text me, etc. They are not nurturing, enriching, edifying or helping people in any way.

I will return to the chat room once I pull my head out of my ass and get it on straight.

KRK.....I already had respect for you, but now that respect has shot through the roof!
99% of the time people won’t admit their shortcomings. That’s not an easy thing to do.
And to do so where it’s so out in the open....that’s very commendable.

I know I can get carried away watching my beloved Packers too.
My hats 🎩 off to you, sir!!!

When the comments get overbearing on the negative side, I usually check out.

Studies show that, win or lose, fans who ride the waves of emotion with the natural ebb and flow of the game report higher subjective feelings of satisfaction after the game. Part of the fun of sports is that it's a societally sanctioned outlet for experiencing the entire gamut of human emotion—maybe the only one we have left these days. One of the downsides to having spent a few years of my life writing about the sport is that I lost that emotional reactivity to the game, and I've never really recaptured it. I miss it sometimes. All I can muster these days is a sort of dry, sardonic, detached amusement with the whole scene.

So be a dickhead when you're watching the games. Scream with excitement, yell with rage, laugh with joy, weep with heartbreak. More importantly, lose yourself in the esprit de corps you share with others who are riding those same emotional waves with you. Only the most closed-minded and judgmental of people will assume you're so emotionally unstable in real life.

Never been in chat so I know not of what you speak.

Everyone does it sometimes....But

It should be consider whether some are channeling Trump and the Koch/Ailes model for disagreement, which demands a refusal to listen or to reflect on opposing ideas. This Model requires a respondent to an argument to be sardonic, yell, scream, demean, threaten violence and/or affect violence against those that offer a contrary opinions.

This Model is undermining the fabric of America and it is not how Jesus would have conducted himself if he were walking among us today.

Wow....finding a way to blast President Trump in a thread like this. Geez.

I myself get overly worked up when watching the Packers. But in the end, I tell myself that realistically, it is just a game. It’s an emotional outlet. And as long as you don’t let it affect you where it affects your health or how you treat your loved ones and friends, I don’t see a problem with it.

Thank goodness. You're about as much fun as a radical feminist lesbian with a dick. If you are such an atonal one-trick pony in real life, I can't imagine how obnoxious your friends must be.

And screw your vacuous Bible thumping. You've never given the slightest indication you know what the Bible even says, much less what it actually means.

That's cool KRK. I don't go to chat because it's too distracting for me. If the comments are coming in too fast I can't follow them. If I type my own comments I lose track of the game.
Actually I even avoid the board this last week. I grow tired of an over abundance of negative comments.

I also have trouble keeping up in chat.
I got pretty excited in there today.

KRK (3h) : NYJ DAL flags on 7 consecutive plays....and hard to argue with any of them
TheKanataThrilla (7h) : Minshew sure does not look like a 6th round rookie
Zero2Cool (8h) : Cardinals are reportedly fielding trade calls from teams interested in star cornerback Patrick Peterson
TheKanataThrilla (8h) : Savage being out is really going to hurt

packerfanoutwest (13-Oct) : sux, but he's not needed against the Lions
Zero2Cool (12-Oct) : Zoroastrianism
Zero2Cool (12-Oct) : Davante Adams will not play Monday night, Matt LaFleur said.
Zero2Cool (11-Oct) : LaFleur liked Tra Carson's reliability Sunday, not just running ball but pass pro. Reason he was promoted over Dexter Williams.
gbguy20 (11-Oct) : he left because he missed smokey too much
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Packers list Aaron Rodgers as limited by knee injury
buckeyepackfan (10-Oct) : Williams and Lindsley practice!
buckeyepackfan (10-Oct) : Bad...Davante still out. Good.
buckeyepackfan (10-Oct) : Bad...Davante still out. Good

Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : He's tweeting, so he is at least alive.
TheKanataThrilla (10-Oct) : Does anyone know why nerdmann stopped posting? A little worried about the guy. Don't know if anyone messages him.
gbguy20 (10-Oct) : weird the stat i saw said all other rookie coaches are 4-19-1
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Packers are 4-1 (.800), while the seven other first-year coaches are 6-26-1 (.197).
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Nice!
Cheesey (10-Oct) : Yup! That’s what I got!
Zero2Cool (10-Oct) : Sewn numbers and painted stripes = authentic.
Cheesey (10-Oct) : The REAL kind, sewn on name and numbers. What a deal!
Cheesey (10-Oct) : Went with my wife to St. Vinnies thrift store. Got an authentic Clay Matthews Jersey, perfect shape, $5.25!
gbguy20 (10-Oct) : think of it this way. give up a 50k job for the potential to earn 500k if they manage to last just a year on a roster. they come out ahead.
gbguy20 (10-Oct) : lots of things don't give up on their dream until forced to. the reward outweighs tge risk to a certain point in their ife
Nonstopdrivel (10-Oct) : I think for me it would depend on what kind of civilian job I'd managed to secure in the interim. No use screwing up a good thing for a pie-in-the-sky shot at a dream.
Nonstopdrivel (10-Oct) : If a team that had previously cut you brought you in for a workout, would you be open to signing with the practice squad?
KRK (9-Oct) : I would like to see either/or Pennel or Williams. Lancaster and Lowry have been disappointing IMO
Zero2Cool (9-Oct) : PFF has Chandon Sullivan and Will Redmond with highest defensive grades
Zero2Cool (9-Oct) : Something like that.
buckeyepackfan (9-Oct) : CM3 out till week 10 with broken jaw.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Packers worked out Packers: Rico Gathers, Mike Pennel, Sly Williams
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : A team, dunno. A room, very easily. They interviewed him. lol
beast (8-Oct) : But how well did the Packers know LaFleur's command of a team and room before hiring him? (We'll never know)
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : hhaha great stat
Mucky Tundra (8-Oct) : Christian McCaffrey has 866 yards from scrimmage. The New York Jets have 718
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : @RobDemovsky Most think he was hired for his offensive philosophies and schemes, but perhaps Matt LaFleur’s command of a team and room went underrated.
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : seahawks +2 vs browns. Slam it while you can!
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : just a thought. he fumbled at the one yard line this weekend and now they traded for another wr. figure maybe they're switching him out.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Really? Raiders gonna cut Davis??
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : turns out this guy is just a tool
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : apparently, baker mayfield refused to shake hands with the 49ers during the coin toss. they made him pay for it all night.
gbguy20 (8-Oct) : maybe the raiders are cutting tdavis after his fumble
KRK (8-Oct) : 49ers are frigging terrific. Both lines are awesome
Nonstopdrivel (8-Oct) : I hope it was one damn sexy pic.
Zero2Cool (8-Oct) : Bills ship WR Zay Jones to Raiders for pic
Nonstopdrivel (8-Oct) : Why does my new kitten seem to prefer to dog's food to his own?
