I want to give a congratulations to the Packer fans on this site for their victory. At least your organization knows how to run a football team. I said this before but I wish the Bears were half ran like the Packers.

Another thing that pisses me off is this labor agreement with the NFL. The deal ends March 3rd so if a deal doesn’t get done by then, a lockout is more than likely of happening. I won’t sit here and write a a whole lot about what’s wrong but I will say that Roger Goodell is an idiot when he says that fans want an 18 game season. I think that statement is no where near the truth.

So we should find out in the next month whether or not the owners will lock out the players. A deal still could get done after that but some reports have said that the season may be shortened because of it.

    I put up a post at frt about this – the owners/players are insane if they end up with a lockout before the season.

    I don’t necessarily want 18 games, but here is something I do not want – I do not want to keep paying for 10 homes when two of them are goddamned pre season. I think the NFL is finally hearing the cries of season ticket holders nationwide on this issue but two more regular season games is not the solution.

    I think if they moved the pre season games down to half price everyone would be happy. There are other ways to sort this out, but 18 regular season games? That would SUCK to have MORE cold weather games on the docket, hopefully they will push them back into August where we have pre season games now.

    Also, crap teams will suffer from 18 games. If they can’t fill it for 16, they surely aren’t going to for 18 and their costs per game are fixed.

    What you said about cheaper preseason tickets is the easiest solution to all of this garbage with the owners. You figure if the tickets are cheaper, more fans will come which leads to higher concession revenue (That’s what sports team make their money off of anyway). So instead of charging full price and only have two people attend, an additional two can come with which as I said leads to more revenue in food, drinks, etc.

    Fro, thanks for the congrats; let me add congrats to Robert for being a fan of one of the classiest organizations in pro sports, the Steelers! They have always done things the right way; the Rooneys, and Mike Tomlin. Pittsburgh made a truly great move in getting this guy as head coach! 3 coaches in 41 years-wow! Additionally, one of the things that makes me happiest about the Pack winning is Aaron Rodgers getting the MVP and finally being able to stick that up Favre’s ass. That punk-ass bitch NEVER mentored Aaron because as we’ve seen, it’s all about #4. Absolutely priceless that in the year that Favre came back after gacking away the NFC Championship game, his heir in Titletown won the Super Bowl that Favre so badly wanted, for HIM, not his teammates. We are blessed for having A. Rodg., and sending that D.bag Favre deeper into retirement! As for the Bears, they had a pretty damn good season as well, that probably nobody expected. Was it a “one-hit wonder”? We’ll find out if the owners and players can get their shit together, and they should. For me, 16 games is enough. How many teams can stay healthy for 16 games, much less 18? But something does have to be done with the pre-season games; the fans are getting it right up the boo boo!

    BTW, one of the nice things about having internet at home again-my “beer-fueled” rants!

    Congrats to Mac and JimmyD for a great win for the Packers. Just as Fro stated, they did it the right way. They overcame many obstacles to reach their goals. The Bears are light years away from operating a football organization the way the Packers do.

    P.S. Fro, I was able to tip-toe around that streaming problem I had from earlier in the week. Thanks for your help.

    Keith, I don’t know if it’ll ever be right until the McCaskeys sell. And the park district needs to step their game up as far as the field is concerned.

  7. ksmc2000 Says:

    I agree Mac. I’m not holding my breath for the McCaskey’s to sell though. Virginia seems to have a Lovie fetish going on. She will probably live to 150.

    After they rebuilt Soldier Field, they should have consulted the grounds crew at Lambeau. It is regarded by players as the best surface to play on in the whole league.

    “Lovie Fetish”. Thanks Keith, I just threw up in my mouth (again)!

  9. ksmc2000 Says:


    Sorry to say, but as long as Virginia is sucking air, Lovie will be the Bears head coach.

  10. chucky Says:

    And both Virginia and Lovie will both continue to suck.
