    Betrayal and heartbreak are not exactly new concepts to sports fans. Teams pack up Mayflower trucks in the middle of the night and move from Baltimore to Indianapolis; hockey franchises with 30 years of tradition move from the Minnesota cold to the blazing heat in Dallas...

    Interesting find.

    Accepting Longwell, and Sharper was a slow process, but I like some on this site will never be able to take it if we sign Farve...... I just couldn't... that guy has been the bain of my exsitence for far to long, and for me it would be like letting Osama Bin Laden be the speaker for the house of representitive's..

    I actually had no problem with Sharper whatsoever.
    I was excited taht we'd have a playmaker of his ability.
    Longwell took a little longer, but I was over it once I saw him make 3 field goals in a row :O
    Ferg really does nothing for me, but that's not because he was a packer, just because he's not that great.
    I would be excited if we got favre, because it would make us instant contenders, but at the same time It would take me quite some time to get used to the idea.

    I really don't care if some packer came here and make us WIN.
    Come on ofcourse we all bashed Favre some time but he could do immense things to our offense. That's the most important. I'm confident that TJ would do good but not better than Favre.
    Rosie O'Donnell is a dude!
