All I have to say is CONGRATS thusfar on your Viking picks in the draft. Wow! I'm at work right now (as usual)...one of my co-workers a while earlier was stating how -even though he's a Packer Backer -he feels like the Vikings are going to be very good this coming season. There were even sounds of a possible super bowl debut for the Vikings. Pretty scary for us Packer Backers, but, hey, all signs lead to the Lombardi Trophy. I have to admit it, the Vikings are looking PRETTY GOOD IN BONO'S EYES!! Hey, it's about, eh? Viking lovers deserve something to FINALY cheer about. It's about time the Vikings took home Lombardi, eh?!!!
Furthermore, one of my other co-workers predicted that the Packers would finish like fourth in the division...outlook not looking good for my boys. I can't believe that actually picked a WR in the second round. What was that? Sure, Ferguson can be a little iffy for this coming season, but we should be GREATLY focusing on our ever dissolving defense!!! Leave the offense alone (outside of maybe one good OL). No need to twurk with it. Favre'll take care of EVERYTHING!. I am glad, however, about the QB my boys got in the first round: Rodgers!!! I can't believe this guy wasn't picked higher? A loss for San Fran. and the other 22 teams who let him slip by. KUDOS for the Packers for getting their future QB for after Favre calls it quits!!!!

Because we welcome fans of every team.

Bono is not too bad. He had a good post too, gave us some props.

finally a packer fn that will admit to something. sometimes I think that Los, Jwalk are the only partly sane packer fans. You may be on the list soon.

Obviously, you don't know me, kiddo!
Let me introduce myself: My name is BonoSugaRay, but folks around here know me as Bono.
Why am I (a packer backer) here during draft day? The same reason why I'm here during any other time: I WANT TO.
Besides, it's not like i'm clowing your beloved Vikings. I came to post props to your boys for the GREAT moves they've made thus far in the draft. Anything remotely wrong with that?

purplepeopleeater,
where have you been all this time? Do you not recognize me? I'm Bono. I always try to be fair when it comes to the Vikings. I don't hate. Ask some of the other Viking Lovers in here about some of my posts regarding the Vikings. I try to give them props whenever it's due. Remember this past playoffs betwix your boys and mine? Mine lost!!! Did I, or didn't I come in here and give props to the Vikings (while vomiting all over my Packers)for the terrific job they did? YES!

I wasn't critisizing (sp) you but complimenting you. You don't come across a fair packer fan avery day. For that matter, you don't come across a fair viking fan every day either...

Bono has his moments. I think he attended the LosAngelis school of visiting fans. High success rates for graduates from that program.

Bono's last few posts have been civilized and intelligent. And, he was one of the first to eat his crow after we beat the Pack in the Playoffs.

Maybe we could change his title to: Classy, Cheapass, Hillbilly. :lol:

Since we're on the subject, in your opinion Bono, why do you come to other fan sites to chat/post? Not poking fun, just curious, because I wouldn't be remotely interested in posting somewhere else. I need to here the voice of reason.

purplepackereater,
I come here b/c Webby has a cool message board dedicated to football!!! Yeah, I know I could probably find some pro-packer message boards to post at, however, it's so much fun going up against those of you who don't like the packers. I couldn't find myself the least interested in posted on a regular basis with a bunch of Packer Backers about how we love our team. NO!! I want some controversity, kiddo!!! I want to post around ppl that I can expect to prove my points to/listen to their opposing views.
That's why I come here.
Furthermore, PURPLEPRIDE site is WAY COOL!!! How many other football message boards do you know of with as much color, excitement and enthusiasm as this one? I do remember this one I used to post on back in the day: PackersSuck.com (Austin, TheGame: how ya'll doin'?)

i think all of us have to admit that this has got to be the one of the best sites for stating opions , while keep the trolls to a min. but now and again it is fun to make some of those back woods packer fans look dumb .

Finally, a Bono thread I don't have to put on boots for.

I must admit that I am quite pleased thus far with our draft. Yours baffles me to a degree - while I could see the 1st round selection (Obvious future need potentially filled), the WR in the 2nd confused me a great deal. While you grabbed a CB as well, I would've thought that "D" was a higher priority with you having no 3rd rounders.

Ah, well, taht's why they play the seasons out.

In my book Bono, your welcome here anytime. I just like to discuss football w/ knowledgable fans such as yourself and to be honest, i like to hear other opinions that differ from my own. It fosters growth of intellect. (even though i cant spell most of the time, lmao)

I am with you bono. This is a bad A** board and its ok to like the packers. Just be prepared to have a horrible year cause the pack will be getting scored on left and right.

Thanks for the props on the draft.

But, remember, we still have to play the games. On paper, we look pretty good, we have to come out and prove it on the field.

We always play better as the underDOGs, so don't give us too many props.

Is there anybody else that is somewhat disappointed with our first round draft picks? I am. I would have much rather had Mike Williams at 7 and we could have had one of the two Cody boys at 18. Don't get me wrong, we're still going to be alright, but I think we could have had a better first round. There's got to be someone out there that agrees!
