DraftHobbyist's picture

Highlighted: Moderator WisconsinRob states that Abby fans only like him because he is a local product and White. This implies that we wouldn't like him if he was Black, which implies that we are racist. When I take objection, moderator Jayme stands by WisconsinRob's comments, and I start getting censored. When I object to Aaron Nagler on Twitter, he threatens to block me without even looking into the situation (a Tweet Jayme quickly favorites like a child).

It's a bit sad that some Packers "fans" that actually run Packer media sites allow stuff like this to happen. Why is it that WisconsinRob jumps to the conclusion that I didn't like Abby for any other reasons than those. After all, I supported James Jones for years, and he's not White. I don't support Jeff Janis and he is White.

This was an exceptional cheap shot for no reason. The reason I like Abby is from what I saw of him in practice in the last two years, albeit limited. When you see him on the field, it's just so easy to tell how much better he is than a guy like Janis. Sure, Abby hasn't stayed healthy, but that wasn't the discussion. I was talking about liking Abby's talent on the field.

I'm at a loss for words about CHTV's intolerant remarks, and then supporting those remarks after they happened. I thought CHTV was better than that.

I too was upset about Rob's comments:

"Because Abby is a local kid, for the packers, who happens to be white."

"That people in Wisconsin would love to root for a white player over a player of color, especially if he's a local boy."

Rob implied Wisconsinites and Packers fans (and cheeseheadtv sponsors) are racist. DraftHobbyist took exception and Jayme responded to Draft:

"Rob had a point, you have a different point. Me I'm watching the game."

"Rob never called you a racist."

One would think that moderators on a Packers forum would censure the user that insulted Packer fans en masse, not the user who took exception. A moderator definitely shouldn't be the one issuing the insult.

Hi Ronald Trump!

I'm sorry if you think I was overreacting. I just wanted to show DraftHobbyist there was someone who agrees with him.

There was nothing in the blog to indicate WisconsinRob was joking, at best he was trolling - even if he was joking. Mods shouldn't troll.

Ted,

Rob stated:
"people in Wisconsin would love to root for a white player over a player of color".

I don't see how that cannot be implying Wisconsinites are racist. I don't see a more prevalent meaning in that statement. Just to be clear, I never thought he was targeting an individual.

Anyhow - I'm savoring the win and looking forward to another one next week, and hoping Washington crushes Atlanta for good measure. Maybe I'll try rooting for Detroit over Seattle tonight.

Ted,

I'm sorry I'm making you sick and tired.

I never claimed the comment was racist, I just stated the comment implied Wisconsinites are racist, and at least some people don't want their hopes for Abbrederis' success to be condemned as racist wishes.

As someone from Wisconsin I want all former Badgers to find success (when not playing against the Pack) and as a Packer fan I'm going to speak positively and have high hopes of all our untested players.

I simply believe that the Abbrederis love from Wisconsin and CheeseheadTV users comes from fandom and not race.
