Our man from Packernet, Al, has responded to this post in which I criticized him for, among other things, comparing the Packers loss to the Giants to the Michael Vick killing dogs and erroneously accusing Mike McCarthy of distracting the team by putting his new contract before winning. It was all nonsense.
And there was also this postgame rant:
Brett, don’t go away mad, just go away. It is clear you can’t carry a team any longer, you are no Joe Montana, you are no John Elway, you are just a chucker who should have won more championships than you did. I’m done with the Packers and you should be too. Game over. Please do not respond to this entry. In fact, go away and leave me alone. No more to come…
As it turns out, there was more to come. Al wrote to us yesterday.
Does being a Packers’ fan mean that you can’t speak the truth? Do I have to only promote the positive and hide the negative? If that is what you want, don’t come to Packernet. We won’t miss you.
We won’t spend too much time him. You’ve read his rants, they don’t warrant much of a response. Allow me to point out, however, that we’re not opposed to criticism of the Packers. In fact, the top post on our site at the time he wrote was critical of Mike McCarthy for the gameplan against the Giants. But Al wasn’t speaking the truth. He was, among other things, likening a tough loss in a football game to the brutal torture of dogs. That, my friends, is unhinged, but it’s also pretty hilarious.
So we’ll keep visiting Packernet and we’ll keep the link up. I think we can all use a good laugh these days.
