My friend and former Starbucks employee Tacheo Machiatto, is now working cleaning the streets around Lambeau, from his vantage point he can get a lot of insider information and he is sometimes able to infiltrate practices. He will be sending me reports and if you don't mind I think this is a good place to share his reports.

So here we go:

Infiltrating practice

Since Atari Bigby is injured the Packers are working hard trying to improve Aaron Rouse's coverage skills.
The Packers have installed a big two door fridge near one of the endzones of practice field. It seems the fridge is used in a drill where Aaron Rouse has to cover the fridge in goal-line situations, he has to stay near the fridge as the play develops at all times.
McCarty commented "it is working but we've had mixed results so far. As soon as Aaron gets this drill we'll bring something more mobile like a Washing machine..."

Injury report (secret injuries)

Punter Derrick Frost can't still move his arms above his heead, he is too used to the punting mechanism that his arms only move from knee level to his chest and back. Several cans of WD-40 were used but so far the injury remains the same

Rumours from the alley

My source reveals the packers are trying to trade one player to another team for a pick. I can't disclose who my source is, the player, the team or the pick but remember I anticipated this when it happens.

Around the league: You read it here first

The Raiders are converting former first round pick and QB Jamarcus Russell to a new position called "Center two". Russell will play behind center and block while the team bases his offense exclusively on run plays.

Brad Childress declared "Tarvaris Jackson is our QB... but he is not starting". The announcement made both Jackson and incumbent Gus Frearotte furious in a move that shows the great leadership skills Childress has developed in the purple team.

And now back to work, see you next time!
Tacheo.

It all sounds like a bunch of made up crap. It still beats Joe Arrigo for being any where close to the truth. :p

Bunch of crap?
Man my friend Tacheo is giving you the EXCLUSIVE breaking news of a possible trade of a possible player to a possible team for a possible pick from a possible source! You have to value that kind of insider information me thinks

If you know who Joe Arrigo is you'll understand the joke.

For those that don't know... Joe Arrigo is an Internet God who writes about inside information with the Packers and sometimes other NFL teams. But, I use the term "Internet God" loosely... he's only a God to the ignorant. Joe Arrigo is a pompous moron who loves to have his ego stroked. Arrigo hangs out on another Packer board that shall not be named here.

Of course, the above is my own opinion. I just like trashing his good name.

The original post to the thread made me think that it was good Arrigo satire.
