Packers Fans

Even though I hate the Packers, you have to admit they have some real football fans. I can't remember if it was ESPN or NFL Total Access but to get season tickets you have to stand in a really long line. It was up around 80,000. WOW!!!!!!

What else is there to do in Wi. ? Visit a cheese factory ? Go cow tipping ? Standing on line for Packer tickets is more of a social event than an inconvenience . I live in Sconny , not much happening .

They are not litterally standing in line. The waiting list for season tickets is 80,000 people. If you hunt or fish I would say their are lots of things to do in Wisconsin. That being said....the Packers stink smile.gif

As I mentioned I live in Wi. and the fans here are not the great fans they are made out to be . When the Pack wins EVERYBODY is a superfan but as soon as they hit a slump , which they have in the past few years , Packer fans turn ugly . Favre is always the first one whos got to go . Then the coach . They jump ship faster than rats off a burning ship . BUT if the Packers string to together a win or two its back to being Superfans . I see it every year . They are fans just like everyone else , fickle & demanding .

I agree with musky same fans over here that you have in minnesota. They jump ship just as fast over here. And back on just as fast.

When Moss "mooned" the Pack a few years ago, it was outrageous and fans and the WI media were all over how "A team would ever want such a player."

Then, when he was available this last year, the Packers and fans thought he was the GREATEST!

He's a good player..........you want your team to win, even if that means taking on someone you once hated.......I'm a Red Sox fan and wanted to name my first born Johnny, but now every time I use the toilet, I call it Johnny......it's all about the team.....

I am a Packer fan, I survived the Forrest Gregg years, Lindy Infante' and the second coming of christ, I mean Don Majicowski (who really cares how to spell it) years, and I can't forget roid raging Tony Madarich either.

When I first heard about the possibility of Moss wearing the green and gold, I said I would not wear green and gold until he no longer did. We'll see what happens in New England this year with Randy. Gifted yes, cancer in the locker room ABSOLUTELY! I think they should have taken a flyer on Keshawn though......

I agree with muskycrazy as well, but one difference you will see is the Packer fans will still show up for the games. It wasn't too many years ago, you'd go to a Vikings/Packers game in the dome and you weren't sure what team was the home team.

If you ask me that whole thing got blown out of proportion by whoever the FOX announcer was for that game. I think the last name was Buck. If you can't see the humor in the situation people need to lighten up a bit.

I agree with you. I found it pretty funny. You don't ever hear people complain about the vulgarities the fans yell at the players. If you are going to complain about it one way be fair and complain about both. Otherwise laugh about it and enjoy the game. grin.gif

That would be Joe Buck. He said something like, "What a disgusting act... and we apoligize to the viewers." Joe Buck definitely blew that one way out of proportion. I thought it was hilarious and I think everyone else did too.

Joe Buck should have been fired and thrown in jail! j/k

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
