Just sayin'...
When everything is very segregated like that I think it makes the forum boring and readers are less likely to read topics they might not otherwise read. Why shrink the forum down by league? I think its fine for those who have interest in only a few topics, but makes it harder to find topics or things one might not know about.

For example, if you make just an NFL thread, then how many here are going to simply avoid it all together since they don't like the NFL?

I would love to see a soccer game being played in Europe with the same kind of temperature conditions as last years NFC Championship. -18 C.

While I was ready to blow my brains out when the Packers lost the game, I now have nothing but respect for the Giants for running the gauntlet in Dallas, frozen Green Bay, and beating the supposed greatest team ever.

All you have to do is go to Moscow. The Russians play soccer in freezing conditions on a regular basis.

Unfortunately the only European games that make it on over here are Champions League, Premiership and occasional Serie A matches. I can't say that I have ever seen a Bundesliga, La Liga game, mutch less a Dutch, French, Russian or other top league game. Even with a couple different channels thats about it.

alright! The Russians are the real men of Europe. I think I will cheer them on in the next Euro Tournament.

I haven't had FSC in almost a year, and that must be new because they never used to. I haven't had Gol TV, the other more international sports channel Setanta shows a good deal of Premiership games as well as Rugby and Aussie Rules Football (which is just fantastic).

However real Football is about to start up around here which can't come soon enough. Opening Monday Night Vikings/Packers, and Aaron Rodgers officially gets introduced to Jared Allen, Kevin Williams and Pat Williams. Now that I can't wait for

Brett Favre is such a brat, he retired, he cant just say "o, change my mind, im back, make me the starter" This is so unfair to Aaron Rogers. Everyone says he is unproven, so was Romo, Both Mannings, Favre, etc etc etc.

I think the Packers are bigger then Favre, Who is a mediocre Quarterback at best, As many Touchdowns as he has thrown, he has thrown the most interceptions, only one championship, and only HUGE numbers because he was a gun slinger, and half were intercepted. Legend my ass. Rogers would be an Upgrade.

Yeah, that first game should be good. I am (and probally the rest of Wisconsin) dying to see A-Rod in action.

I agree. As much as I love Brett, he screwed us and put us in a tough spot. The job was already handed to Rodgers. Taking that job away from Rodgers (who sat on the bench patientely), on another Favre whim, does make Favre bigger than the Packers organization. And he isnt. Now we have either find somebody to trade him to, release him (of course, to the hated Vikings), or pay him, along with 3 other quarterbacks.

I dont agree that Favre is a mediocre quarterback, though. He is among the top quarterbacks to ever play the game, perhaps in the top five. In his advanced age, he is still among the most elite in the NFL. How could he not be, with basically a hold on every major passing record? All that, without really a premier Jerry Rice calibur WR. Yes, he is a wild, gunsligner type q.b. who has cost us dearly (this years NFC Championship and numeous playoff games). But he is also probally the most inventive and exciting q.b. to ever play football. He is certainly a legend. His career start record alone qualifies him that status. Take note, that for years, Favre was allowed to go wild under Mike Sherman--who gave him free reign to force the ball into double coverage.

Lets just stick with Aaron Rodgers, and it is time for him to show us why the packers made him a top 3 pic a few years ago.
