Glad to see someone leave Packer Chatters. What an arrogant group of knobs. It's like trying to join a country club over there but without the perks of actually being a member of a country club. I'm sure our conversations here are just as stimulating as the ones over there.

You hit the nail on the head. There are a lot of the same political attitudes there too.

I'd been thing about leaving for sometime. Glad that the site shutting down finally gave me the motivation to leave.

@davekenya That's not a knife.........THIS is a knife !

Welcome to FF. 

Also @Thom_Tedson, Welcome. I see you love PC gaming - I never thought to put that on my hobbies - but I have a lot of games, including oldies like Ultima Underworld 1&2, the Baldur's Gate series and KOTOR 1&2.

I  ask this question every year at this time WHY IS JERRY KRAMER NOT IN THE HOF. And I never get a straight answer, I am not a Packer fan, but this has to be the biggest injustices in the history of the HOF voting. I lived thru the great Packers teams of the late sixties, both Jim Parker of the Colts and Kramer of the Packers, were the two best O lineman of that era. Ten times Kramer was a finalist in the voting but has never made it.

Was this your username over at PC?

Who did you cheer for in the Orange Bowl this year?

I had the same Username over at PC, but I didn't post too much. Mainly just read content. 

As for the Orange Bowl, I was rooting for the Badgers 100%. In 2009, when they played against each other in the Champs Sports Bowl, I honestly didn't kow who I was rooting for until the game took place. I quickly found out I was rooting for the Badgers. They will always be my #1 school (but I don't think I will love a team as much as I did the 2002 Hurricanes).

I used to be on the PC forums a long time ago, but my account was closed for some reason, so all I did was lurk on occasion.  Thought I'd register over here in case I ever got the urge to chat about the Packers.
