    No argument from me, my favorite team is the New Orleans (am almost always disappointed), #2 is Green Bay

    You've just lost all credibility. The only football fans that have 2 favorite teams are women who don't watch football but think one of the players is cute or that the uniforms have pretty colors.

    ONE TEAM or NO teams!

    Can I call BS on that? For this reason only. I'm not sure how old you are but I'll guess mid-30s or higher? That means that when you were of an age to still be considered "growing up" it was the mid to late 80s. In that time period, the Packers sucked. So needing a team after December, and choosing GB doesn't hold water.

    Now, if I'm wrong and you are only in your 20s then I have another issue. That issue is someone born in the time frame I graduated high school having the ability and power to ban me from this forum.

    So, either way, I can't accept your explanation.

    What you could say is "Of the teams I hate, GB is the lowest on the list" then that's ok. For me it's probably the Chiefs. And that's ok because I'm a fan of an NFC team and KC is in the AFC. They have no real impact on the outcome of my favorite team's season and I really have no reason to dislike them.

    There are rules! Man rules! Follow them or get a sex change.

    I second that. I raise my glass to you, but not a beer glass. It might spill and I'm not into wasted beer.
    Efficiency through redundancy is a contradiction in terms.

    Attrition is not an effective means of combat.

    I'm still wondering how he thought that he had control of the ball when he couldn't even tuck it in before he extended. Once they made the call that it was incomplete, I kept laughing at him when ever the camera showed him pissed off and kicking imaginary rocks. That was the best part of the game. He looked like he was about to cry.

    I am 42.

    I like Green Bay because my dad liked Green Bay he grew up in Wisconsin. Yep, as a kid both were bad ... As time went on come late season I am usually following Green Bay.

    Few things make me happier than seeing bad things happen to the Cowboys.

    I'm a lifelong Giants fan, and if some genie offered me a choice between the Giants winning the super bowl or the Cowboys going 0-16, I'd have to think about it.
