Once he gets a bit older he'll realise that the team is more important then individual players.



If only some of the otherwise intelligent posters on this forum would come to that realization, we could actual talk X's and O's instead of fighting so much over our ex-player rights.

12 year old boys do a lot of dumb things because of energy. 18 - 25 year old men do a lot of dumb things because of testosterone. Middle age guys do dumb things to regain their youth. And old guys like 93 and Dfoster just shake their heads and chew all of us out. Let him go through his progressions or just beat him now and straighten him out.

Us old guys have a good heart, though. Take Barney the purple dinosaur, for example...

For the kids. :thumbleft:

Told my little boy (12) yesterday that Brett Favre had signed with the Vikings. I knew he loved Favre, but I was startled at the emotion in his reaction. He really started cheering, whooping it up big time, and said he hoped they beat the Packers!

Needless to say, I was shocked. I've been a Packers fan since the early 60s, suffered through the 70s & 80s, then enjoyed the success during the Favre years. There's no way for even a moment that I'd contemplate saying "I hope Brett and the Vikings beat the Packers!"

When I asked, he said he was still a Packers fan. But then he went on a rant (which is EXTREMELY rare with this guy, so I know this is something that's been on his mind) about how the Packers shouldn't have traded him to another team last year, hadn't treated him right etc.

We had a discussion about if you could call yourself a fan if you were rooting for another team to beat them, and he said it was just for 2 games, he'd root for the Packers during all the rest of the games!

I hadn't thought about it, but until last year, the only quarterback he's ever known for the Packers was Brett. So I'm cutting him a little slack, but I don't know if I'm going to be able to watch the Packers-Vikings games if my boy is going to be next to me cheering the bad plays and booing the good plays.


It could be worse, my younger brother became a Bears fan to spite my dad.

Reminds me of an the old Mad Magazine approach to raising kids (or was it training pets?):

A little love, a little patience, and a lot of beatings... ;p

Our little boy has started to growl at us whenever we hum the "Barney" theme around him... ::twisted:

Was discussing the Packers preseason with my little boy, and mentioned that Rodgers had taken the team to touchdowns on 5 of 6 drives so far this preseason. He commented that he thought Rodgers was a good replacement for Brett. I'll have to get him a Rodgers jersey--the only one he's ever had/wanted was a #4.

He may end up rooting for the Pack when they play the Vikings, but I can't see him rooting against Brett--he'll want him to have a good day in any case.
