Since some people seem to be getting uptight about the amount of time we spend criticizing people around here, I thought it was the perfect opening for another edition of Dumbass.
Yes, we spend alot of time around these parts picking apart other peoples’ stuff. Why? Well, usually it’s because they are stupid.
Before I get into my rant, rest assured we know where we stand in the scheme of things. If you want to criticize us publicly, than you are more than welcome to do so. In fact, we invite it. But, rest assured we don’t take anything sitting down.
I like to sing standing up.
We know we are far from perfect. Dale uses weird words and phrases, and I never take the proper amount of time to edit. So, feel free to have at us. We love that shit.
Now, on to the Dumbass of the week.
I will dedicate this one to one of my favorite members Mr. ‘Halo.
I actually have been wanting to call out this former fan for quite some time. During the whole Favre incident last season, he was quite vocal around the Packer forumsphere. A source, who wishes to remain anonymous, has told me his name is David Thomason, and he claims to be Brett Favre’s pilot and friend.
I do not know in what capacity these claims are true, but it seems to be common knowledge. If you have ever browsed Brett Favre’s former website, you will find him under the name DavidPHX. Now I don’t know if he gave Favre a couple of rides one time, or truly was a bonafide chauffeur. Whether Favre considers him a friend, I do not claim to know either. What I do know, is this guy has a huge mouth and doesn’t hesitate to use it.
In his latest rant, he takes the time to offer advice and pose questions on Aaron Rodgers’ interview with Michael Irvin. David has an interesting take. I would like to make fun of it right now.
Here it is:
Why did Rodgers talk to Michael Irvin. He has many times displayed his hate 4 Favre.
Why did Rodgers even bother to answer any Favre questions?
Did Rodgers really think that whining about Favre not returning a phone call would not make National News? My God it was a year ago and a phone call, get over it.
Why are the Packers allowing this to happen? Have they not learned from last season? Do they really want another year of a divided Packer Nation?
My advice to Aaron Rodgers is shut up and throw the football. Until you take this team to a Playoff game and win a MVP just stick to football. I really don’t care who you call and if they call you back. If you didn’t know you were being set up then you are just plain stupid. I don’t think your stupid so that leaves it that you maybe enjoy the drama? Until you take this team to a playoff just shut up, work hard and stay out of the news. I will have respect 4 you then.
Firstly, I love the way you use the little 4′s. That’s kind of cute actually. You really can appreciate it in the screenshot. Regardless of the cuteness factor, let me address these issues in order.
1. Aaron Rodgers can talk to whomever he pleases. That is his right. Some would even argue it his responsibility as a professional athlete. A lot of people have shown hate for Favre, big deal.
2. He didn’t answer the majority of the questions. In fact, he openly says he doesn’t want to comment on several occasions. The questions he did respond to, were honest answers to tough questions –something that is refreshing to see at the quarterback position in the off-season.
3. It shouldn’t make national news, and that is just the point. It is guys like yourself refusing to let go that continue to perpetuate this atrocity. He was asked a question he answered it. If anything, this speaks volumes about how distant Favre really was from his teammates.
4. Allowing what to happen? Nothing is happening here. The only thing I see happening in this neck of the woods are the Favre supporters becoming a smaller and smaller demographic. There is no divided Packer nation, just some random loud mouths modeled after the attention seeking hero they so faithfully imitate.
As far as your advice to Aaron Rodgers, I think he threw the ball quite well. We all know the statistics so I’ll kindly gloss over that for you. He handled the season like a true professional and certainly did things “the right way.”
This wasn’t a set-up, this wasn’t a conspiracy. This was a stand-up guy doing a routine interview he probably has done a thousand times before.
As far as drama goes, I thought that was all the rage right now?
Is that only if there is a big 4 on your back?
Or, is this just Jet lag talking? Pun intended.
