    Loud guy on KFAN

    I don't recall the name of the guy, but around 4:30 yesterday KFAN had some loud packer fan on their show.
    He had a very high pitched voice and was very annoying.
    I was hoping they would just cut him off after a while because he was not listening to the hosts and was just touting incoherently about the Packers and Aaron Rogers.
    Finally though, he had a very good point.
    We take a loss way to seriously here.

    Here if we lose one we start pointing fingers and calling for people's heads.
    In most places they put it behind them and say "we'll get them next week" and focus on the next team in their way.
    To be honest, I don't think we as fans are supportive of our team.
    I couldn't believe my ears when I heard BOOING at the colts game when we went up 15-0.
    We sit here and point fingers at the team, but I offer this guy's hypothesis to you...IT'S THE FANS' FAULT!

    Your team is up 15-0...CHEER FOR THEM!!!!!!
    Who's to say it was not the boos from the fans that brought the defenses confidence down to the point of letting a few scores through?????
    What would you think if you had shut out one of the BEST offenses in the NFL in the first half and you were getting BOOED?
    The fact is that the Vikings are a team and when you boo one you are booing them all, they ALL hear it.
    So how about you all man it up and have a positive effect on the team.
    If Tarvaris throws a bad pass or they score on us give the team a chance to come back.
    If you give up on the they will give up on you, KEEP CHEERING, KEEP IN THE GAME, BE POSITIVE!!!!!!!!
    Enough with the booing enough with the negativity, get those guys to start having fun out there and pull the gun away from their heads!

    It is Carl Gerbschmidt.
    He is a repeat call in from WI who purposely makes his voice sound like that as part of Dan Barreiro's bit.
    It isn't real.
    I mean, he is a real Packer fan, but the whole voice/absurd view points, etc all all part of the bit.

    Last year after the Packers lost to Dallas, Carl refused to accept that it really happened because he didn't see it on TV.
    That kind of stuff.
    I think that Barreiro calls in to a WI station and does the same for them.

    A lot of people think the Karl Gerbschmidt bit is done by none other than........


    Kevin Seifert (Former Star Trib. writer).

    Personally, I have no idea, but it's an annoying bit, not clever, and not funny in the least.

    half sarcastic..however, im sure the boos were more towards play calling than anything else..its gotten to the point where the fans are just sick and tired of the same garbage after 3 years

    Aside for whoever does the bit, I think his message on that point was true, I think the fans at the dome were to blame for that loss.
    Get behind your team for christ's sake!!!!

    what about the 2-13 or whatever it was on 3rd downs? this team is such a mess that its fans are now starting to blame other fans for losing!

    I want to win too, I am sick of losing!
    BUT I know that ever since around 2000 we have had one of the bitchiest fan bases in the NFL.
    Somewhere in between 1998 and 2000 we forgot how to support a team.
    The reality is that they need to be motivated to win, if their fans are booing them when they are up what motivation is that?!?!
    They are humans too, think of it this way, you might love your job, but if all you get is negative feedback you will check out...correct?
    It's the same for them...
