I first came here to watch the live streams since I live in Indiana I never get to watch the Pack unless they are on national tv. But, I read the forums daily in my computer class and I definitely learn a lot from what people say.

It seems like most people here are pretty intelligent and there are some great posters that have a comedic gift.

I would love to know why the regulars post here, read here, and vent here. What makes you tick, why here at Packers Home?

I AM ESPECIALLY INTERESTED IN THE ANSWERES FROM PEOPLE WHO LOG ON REGULARLY, READ, AND NEVER POST. I KNOW THERE ARE A TON OF YOU!

GO AHEAD AND MAKE YOUR FIRST POST.

Is it the people or members posts that make you respond? Is it the thread content and education? Is it because you have been to other packer sites and it was not as well run?

Is it because you love some of the naysayers and love reading their conviction of how the Packers "Suck"?

Is it because you have no life and have been spanking the monkey all day on porn sites and just needed a little NFL Packer Talk this off season? :icon_smile:

Be candid.

Like I said.... I am not affiliated with this site...

I just am a very inquisitive guy. Some times I just need answers to thoughts that burst into my mind.

Praytell... Readers and Posters..... Why The Hell Are You Logging On?

It's where I get my Packers news. More reliable than any other source.

Plus, you get to argue facts. I like arguing facts and going round and around in circles for days. Fun stuff.

I used to frequent the JSonline forum, then when that shut down it seemed like most of the good posters migrated over to packerforum.com(or here and i just didnt know about it). When that site went down the toilet i found out about this place, and have been checking pretty much every day since.

There are a lot of people who are very knowledgable here, really know what they are talking about and very few actual trolls(jsonline and PF were FILLED with them). So i've been really happy with the site. I only post on occasion, generally because i dont have the same level of football knowledge as some of you guys here, so i dont often have anything of value to add.

Usually when i open my web browser in the morning, i open a tab with PH, Jsonline, and profootballtalk to check for the latest discussion/news/rumors.

I came across another site sometime a couple years back - mostly I wanted to get some information on the Packers, because in Minneapolis it's not easy to come by (shocking, huh?). Then that place went down and some nice person (I forget who, apologies to that person) tipped me to this place.

By and large, I still come here mostly for some extra information, possibly an inside scoop or two, and just to see what other Packers fans are thinking. I got sucked into the Favre thing last year, and I'm a little embarrassed that that's what got me posting, but I would say without question that the endless arguments and debates about No. 4 are my least favorite aspect of the site. Still, it's reality - to be a Packers fan in 2009 is to be a part of a community that's bitterly divided, and I guess to an extent I come here to see how bad that rift is on any given day.

I've not gone to a ton of Packer boards to compare, but it seems as if there's a larger proportion of knowledgeable folks here, which is a plus for me. Even the "haters" like DHazer and DD80 know what the hell they're talking about, even if I sometimes wish they'd use that intelligence for something other than documenting how crappy our GM is. Still, I'd rather read intelligent criticism than simple sour grapes.

I don't think of myself as a "regular" here or anyone who contributes much - in my mind I'm still a lurker who occasionally posts an opinion or asks a question. I do very much appreciate that there's a place to go to be in a community of other Packers fans, definitely, so thanks to all who work to keep this place afloat.

I like this place and as much as I bicker with all you I do respect the majority of the people that post here. I like it because Zero allows differing viewpoints and doesn't seem to be on a power trip to suspend members who disagree with him.

Actually I too was at the "other" website and followed everyone over here.

I like the members there is a good mix of levity and information passed out here.
I have an account set up at a different sight that will remain nameless. *cough* P@-k-r Ch@t-rs *cough*. While they have excellent posters over there as well, I find some of their posts to be rather long dissertations. I just don't have the time to read a 800 word post and all the replies to why GB should mow the grass north and south instead of east and west.

I come here not because our posters are less informed, they just seem to get to the point a little quicker.

Unlike others who will post on several sites I wanted only one place to call home. I spend a little time on a baseball site and a college basketball site as well.

Some sites allow a lot of trash talking. I don't want to deal with that. I don't mind people having a difference of opinion but I hate it when name calling runs the site. Kevin and the mods do an excellent job of keeping this to a minimum.
And of course we have the Cheese Meister here. Alas if he were only exclusive to us.

First and foremost I am a football addict.. I swear I have a little pigskin DNA embedded within me.

The reason I spend my time here for the most part is first and foremost the members here.. from the diehard football posters to the blended ones that speak about football and everything else.

I am an observer of personalities outside of the web.. and apply that here.. much like RP's comment.. I absorb what makes people tick and how they apply that to football and discussions.. from the hyper to the mellow.. the passive to the aggressive.. it is much like the X's and O's within the game.. the game within the game.

The board and layout are organized and maintained well.. but it is the members that make it tick and stay breathing..

In the world outside of the net, I am generally on the reserved side, observing more so.. here I am somewhat the opposite.. mainly because I can learn about people and speak as well and it revolves around football.. it is my personal nirvana.
