I'm betting dhazer hasn't voted. :icon_smile: :icon_smile: :icon_smile:

Looks like anyone can vote as many times as they want. Only takes a few voting yes time and time again to scew the results.

Saying that, IMHO the next question should be "did the Packers do the right thing hiring TT?".

5 years, with little results(My opinion of results is based solely on wins and losses, that is how every gm and coach is judged).

I'm of the opinion that the fans who hate Thompson are far more rabid about this whole thing than the ones who have supported what he's done (because they just want all this Favre drama to blow over). So I'm thinking the numbers are really more like 80/20.

But in reality he's programming something that'll vote 'no' twenty times per minute.

Absolutely. I was hoping there would be some closure no matter the outcome last Monday... when what actually happened was the pro-Favre crowd came out of the woodwork to talk even more shit. I'm hoping it blows over at some point. I clearly take a side on this issue, but more than anything else I just want there to NOT BE an issue. We're making our fanbase into a laughing stock with all of this infighting.

I have been saying that all along about our fanbase but people in wisconsin don't see what it is like outside of the state and how others think of us.

I assume you are not talking about this board? If you look at this section, I'm pretty sure there isn't even a SINGLE thread about the Packers/Vikings game. Most of the threads on here are about something negative about Favre.

If the reverse happened and Favre threw 3 INTs and the Packers routed teh Vikings, can you honestly say that this section of the board would not be filled with thread after thread laughing at Favre.

I am assuming that you are talking about another board because I think anyone that felt that Favre was the better option all along handled it with class and did not come on here and say "I told you so". Which the other way around, I don't think the same result would have happened.

In the end both sides won IMO. Favre wanted to prove to Ted or whoever that at 40 years old and healthy I am just as good as Rodgers in his 20's. The Packers wanted to prove that Rodgers has game and took a good risk. They did that.

Btw - I am surprised taht the 34% is that high. I would have assumed more people were over the whole thing but I guess not. But then again its an online poll, so it has little weight.

I don't think anyone is laughing at Vikings QB here. As we've said from the start. He gives the Vikings a dimension they hadn't had before and makes them difficult opponent in the early part of the season. If used sparingly and controlled he's a helluva an asset. As he's shown.

No one is laughing, but people are getting sick of hearing how he's essentially playing 15 years younger when he's playing with in a SYSTEM and doing it well.

The Vikings are using him the right way and that does not make me laugh, it scares me.
