Once again, I am proud to bring you this week’s edition of dumbass. We have faithfully scoured the internet in search of Packer comments at their finest. Today we address stupidity of a different sort.
This comment actually comes from someone who is a true Packer fan through and through. In fact, it is from a moderator at a once popular Packer forum. I was also a longtime poster and moderator of this exact forum which now finds itself trying to pick up the pieces after a total fall from grace.
It isn't the comment itself that is dumb, but rather the action. This week, we were plastered with Favre stories once again. I don't like to have to focus on Favre either, but the simple truth is that Brett Favre is still news in Green Bay. It is a worthy topic and regardless of your stance, talking about former players possibly giving away Packer secrets to other teams is always newsworthy.
After the news broke, this particular forum decided to end the discussion with the following comment.
"This stupid story has caused enough uproar. Topic locked."
Now I can understand locking a topic for being abusive, non-Packer related, or even slightly off topic. But to lock a topic, centered around perhaps the biggest news of the week, then render it unworthy of discussion is plain stupid.
Especially, if your forum is slowly sinking to the depths of oblivion.
Lighten up over there people. Take your hand off the trigger and let people talk.
