Site News: Ch-ch-ch-Changes...

CHTV co-founder Aaron Nagler will be conspicuous by his absence after today. And be sure to welcome our newest blogger Zach Kruse!

I just wanted to drop a note to let all our readers know that there are some changes coming here at Cheesehead TV.

First of all, as of today I'll be blogging full-time for Bleacher Report, covering the NFL on The Go Route, their NFL blog. This will be a full-time gig covering the entire NFL. Needless to say, I am excited beyond measure - but a bit sad as well, as it means I won't be hanging around CHTV nearly as much. I'll still put up the odd post here and there, especially if there's some huge development with the Packers, but mostly I will be All-NFL-All-The-Time over at Bleacher Report.

To offset my inactivity here we are bringing on a new blogger here at Cheesehead TV. Be sure to welcome Zach Kruse to the CHTV family. You may have seen Zach's work over at Jersey Al's Packers site or over at Bleacher Report. He is, in my opinion, the best young Packers blogger around and Corey and I couldn't be happier to have him on board.

I can't thank all of you enough for making Cheesehead TV part of your daily Packers routine.

Noooooooooooooooo

Nagler, you dick.

Is this because I never told you how much I loved you? I was playing hard to get! Why would you write for the Bleacher Report??? Of all places! Those slideshows are the most ignorant hackjobs on the internet.

Great news for you but kind of sad for the site. Believe it or not I only discovered CHTV about a year ago and check it for your thoughts daily.

But you deserve this. You're one of the best, most fair bloggers in any topic I've come across. Guess I'll read the Bleacher Report now.

The bleacher report has been nothing but inaccurate crap up to this point. I've blocked them from all my news gathering apps. Because every article I've seen turned out to be wrong or so over the top, it's unbelievable. Hopefully Aaron will write some truthfull articles for them now. Good luck Aaron.

Son of a Bitch. Zach has large shoes to fill.

Aaron, while I didn't always agree with you, I think this is a prudent time to say.. you do mighty, mighty fine work, and you will be missed around here. Big. Time.

Are you still gonna have your old day job, or is this new endeavor going to be replacing that?

Congrats on the new opportunity...Paradox, Humor and Change are the only constants

Good Luck with the ch ch changes and remember David Bowie was really David Jones until he had to ch ch change his name so as not to compete with teen heart throb Davy Jones of the Monkees

As for the Bleacher Report- they are the 0-16 Lions of NFL websites. I'm sure you'll help them out immensely, but as noted by others, they purvey mostly crap that is a mile wide and an inch deep - the very antithesis of what you created here.

Good Luck and thanks for your great work at CHTV, you created something unique and worthy for Packer fans to enjoy

You raised the bar of being a discerning Packer fan, speaking intelligently on a topic which allowed us fans to keep the moniker of being among the most knowledgeable fans in the NFL. For that I say THANK YOU!

I hope BR is paying you extra for giving them legitimacy and street cred.

Well, this kind of sucks. You are the reason I read Cheesehead TV.

On the other hand, congratulations. I wish you every success, you certainly deserve it.

I will try to read your stuff at The Go Route, but I have little patience or time reading much about other teams. So I trust you will give the Packers their due (and then some!?) over there.

I'll still be following Cheesehead TV, too.

Aaron, I'm not accustomed to checking out B/R, so this move means I'll probably see less of your work.

Regardless, you deserve to get paid regularly for the job you do, and this has been the case for a long time. Most of the current analysts in the major NFL sites can't hold a candle to you. Much like has been said already, I sometimes disagree with your take but I respect it every time.

The Packers' blogosphere is losing a key component.

As for Zach, I've already stated my appreciation for your work at Jersey Al's. I expect to see more from the same, at least.

I'm a demanding customer. With all the money invested, I have the right to complain ;)

Big shoes to fill, BTW. Just remember, don't take the eventual boos too seriously, keep your head up, work on your craft and soon enough you'll be regarded as one of the most valuable bloggers.

Aaron, I can only send you off with Monty Python:

Bleacher Report: You are getting someone whom I've always personally admired, perhaps more deeply, more strongly, more abjectly than any other blogger.

You are getting a man, well more than a man, a god (applause), a great god, whose personality is so totally and utterly wonderful my feeble words of praise sound wretchedly and pathetically inadequate. Someone whose boots I would gladly lick clean until holes wore through my tongue, a man who is so totally and utterly wonderful, that I would rather be sealed in a pit of my own filth, than dare blog on the same page with! Bleacher Report: the incomparably superior human being, Aaron Nagler!

Good luck, man!

Whether you like BR or detest it, I will say this: this is not Nagler's last move. Keep an eye on the kid, as I predict this is just a first step onto something greater.

Aaron:

I tried reading your articles at the Go Route. More specifically, I tried reading the comments section.

There were some rational ones.

But the majority of it, well, let's just say every fanbase has at least one Pack66, and they all managed to voice their "thoughts" in one place. Scary stuff.

Good luck, man. You'll need it. And lots, lots of patience. Occupational hazard indeed.

All Nagler needs to remember is never write a piece calling the Bears a "desperate team". Oops. Too late. Tough crowd at the B/R. (Although one has to consider that most Bear fans that post on blogs either reside at 'Cook County' jail or have been drinking pretty much the entire day.)
