Well, you're obviously not from Chicago or old enough to really remember what it was like when ReinsDork did that. NO comparison, in any way at all.



Excuse me i was a Bulls season ticket holder when he did this. He didn't want it known as MJ's team he wanted it known as the team he built. Ted Thompson didn't want this known as Favre's team he wants it known as his own. The bulls have sucked since and as far as Ted Thompson he has had 1 winning season out of 4 your probably to young to remember the last time the Packers had losing seasons. People are saying he has helped this team by getting us under the cap well tell me this what good is it if he don't spend it but on second teir players? Ted Thompson got rid of the aging line but yet to this day hasn't found a replacement. So now tell me where i am wrong.

He hasn't done it in the past, why should he do it now?

Please prove me wrong Ted.


I'm wishing for a pony myself. Until Ted Thompson shows me that he's willing to spend some bucks on quality FA's, he's the Matt Millen of GB in my book.


He sure paid the farm for Charles Woodson. He payed Ryan Pickett a pretty good share of money too. I'd say those two players are quality FAs.


The problem is people want that EVERY year..
And the problem is, there isn't a Charles Woodson to be had, every year.

What I read about Wolf and Favre is that Wolf really wanted Favre. The Falcons ended up drafting him and Wolf did what it took to get Favre over here.

So Wolf gets full credit for Favre, as Ted Thompson gets full credit for Gregorious.

2008 = Hiccup.

Nothing a long drink of water this off season will not take care of.

It had very little to do with T.T.

Have you ever been doing the big-glass-of-water trick to get rid of the hiccups, and then hiccup in the middle of drinking the water, then the water goes down the wrong tube and you puke????

....i swear, that's.... never happened to me.

LOL to frickin funny.

You have to put your head down and drink from the opposite side of the glass that you normally drink from.

In the end of the day, I want more Lombardis than the Cows. I don't care of the GM comes to work dressed in a tutu. Just get us the players it takes to win. That's all I ask for.


Oh, great, thanks for THAT visual. Now I've got visions of Mike McCarthy and Ted Thompson in tutus. I'm going to have to go scrub my eyes with drano now...

Brett isn't MJ - there's one area you're wrong. Also, Reiny flat out SAID he wanted the Bulls to be known as his team and not MJ's or Phil's - Thompson hasn't ever said anything, and as usual it's your irrational hatred (fueled by an equally irrational hero worship) that's leading you to compare the two.

If Thompson ever manages to put together a track record as miserable as Reinsdorf, then maybe I'll join you - but as of yet he's not anywhere near in the same category.


EDIT to add: And as my member name attests, I'm 39 - I lived through the 70s and 80s right along with everyone else. Again, comparing the current Packers to the joke we used to call a team is just hyperbole aimed at stirring people up, and that's just tired as hell at this point. Get a new act.

You're welcome.

You know what though? Ted Thompson wouldn't look too bad in a tutu. Mike McCarthy though, that would be disastrous. He'd be like the Hippo dancing with the Crocodile in Fantasia.

Sure he did! But it was still a gamble at the tiime. And after Wolf watched Favre for a bit, he then went to FA and got Reggie. He knew there was a piece from the puzzzle that was missing, on DEFENSE.

Jennings is definiyely a piece in the current puzzle, but there are still some missing pieces.

So....when Wolf did a good move, he was a genius....when Ted Thompson does it, he's "lucky?" Man.......to me thats just ignoring the truth because you don't WANT to give any credit to TT.
Wolf got Reggie........TT got Woodson and Pickett........TT just got "lucky" again, right?
Oh....and Wolf took several years to build the Packers to where they won the Super Bowl. But you arn't willing to allow Ted Thompson to have the time needed?

To me its unreal how some will dissmiss good moves by our current GM based only on the fact they hate the guy. Ted Thompson got Rodgers.........a guy who threw 28 TD's, and only 13 ints, over 4000 yards in his first season on the field.
Damn......that Ted Thompson is just "lucky!" He has NO idea what he's doing.

Thanks Yoop.....and you are right. With what i'm going through right now, getting worked up is the worse thing i can do.
I just have a problem TRYING to understand the lack of logical thinking.
