Prost to everyone. I've been a seldom poster to other Packer message boards and a quiet reader here, but I think it's time to become more active ;)

Favorite current Packers: All of them. It's a team and everyone has to contribute. If I had to pick a name, it's Reggie Gilbert.

Welcome pacman5252. Yet another ex PC finds their way here. Enjoy- this site can be pretty busy.

I often find myself on the other side to you of a discussion, but that isn't a bad thing. No difference of opinion = boredom....

Two pieces of advice.

You cannot post 'likes' until you have registered for a week or so. When you can, a small outline of a football will appear bottom left of a post. A sort of rookie rules thing.

In your profile, upload, then drag and drop a smallish picture over your avatar to get something other than a blank image. It doesn't have to be a round image (as I thought), if it is about the right size, it should 'take'.

Have fun.
