    My Side Of The Fence

    I must say that i can see why there arent a lot of packer articles on the site. It was kinda boring to read about that. No Offense.

    No offense taken.

    Of course, I could easily make them "interesting" by stooping to Viking-baiting or doing some Packers-are-great/Viking-suck stuff, which I'm sure would get more people's attention.

    I love the Pack, hate the Vikes, but recognize this rivalry as the greatest in the league right now. If I'm going to write articles, I'd rather focus on that than chest-thumping my team over yours. Coming onto a Vikes site and doing such would be in pretty poor taste.

    I will work to improve.

    Good reads Los especially the first two. I was also not aware of how many people all over the world liked either the Vikes or Pack. You always hear about teams like the Cowboys, Raiders, and Steelers being so popular. I think one reason the Packers have so much appeal is their ownership...the fans. That kind of makes them seem like a "working class" team, kind of the way Pittsburgh always has been even though they aren't fan owned.

    As far as the rivalry I became a Vikings fan in the late 80's. I hated the Bears more than any other team and the focus of it all was Mike Ditka. He always talked so much crap before the games. Plus the Bears just dominated everybody. But that hatred has kind of given way to the Packer rivalry. Those games really do get us more riled up.

    If you were to take a little time LOS you would have found out that the Vikings and Bears had a rivalry almost fron the start. The reason for that was the Vikings are the first team in the NFL to win the first game of their first season with a rookie QB. His name was Fran Tarkenton and he came off the bench to win the game. The Vikings had beat the "monsters of the midway" Chicago Bears. While GB was starting to win then thanks to a pretty famous coach and a pretty good QB named Starr it really did not last long. From 1969-1990 the Bears and the Vikings won all but one central division title. In the fifties the Detriot Lions were the big winners of the central. So GB has not really been a major player for most of my life. I will admit though that a very good rivalry has developed with the pack and yes it has made for many a great game. Long live the NFC Central (north).

    Yep Back for another year :cheers: I moved and am student teaching right now..so I am not on the net as much as I have been. Good to see that you are still around with others like Barfly, and havn't run and hid like the Packer BanWagon fans that have realized this isn't the pack's year. So tell me Los, do you think your team has a Chance? I'm not talking about supporting your team, because I know you would root for them win or lose, but seriously, I don't see the Pack doing much this year, what do you think? :colors:

    Since Webby hasn't given in to allowing a Packer fan to have an official article, I will continue to post mine. I posted the first two back in July and August in the Authors forum, which has since disappeared, so I am reprinting them with my newest article. Enjoy!
    Good writing style Los! :thumbright: I particularly liked your third story, especially the ending. Too many of these NFL (and MLB, NBA) primadonnas don't have a clue as to how good they have it. Of course, you have to post your literary works on our site because none of those Schmidt sucking, pickled egg inhaling, CheeseWhiz snorting, Jerry Springer re-run addict Slacker fans can read... :bootyshake: EXCEPT for Inferior00BarFly, but I think he was schooled somewhere on the frozen tundra! :tongue:

    Good article Los...I enjoyed reading all of it. All rivalries set aside let's all hope for a "injury free" exciting football season.

    And Los those Viking fans critiquing your post are obviously narrow minded. I've wanted to post something like that for so long but just never got around to it.
