Very friendly people and 'the game' came up after my husband mentioned that I am a Seahawk fan. They questioned the catch but the conversation didn't linger there. BTW, they LOVE Russ. They said everyone still loves him from Wisconsin. They wish the Packers had drafted him. lol. I don't understand all the hate here. Being from Michigan in Lion country there are a lot of Packer and Bear fans out here on the west side of the state. I have generally never met a Packer fan like you all insist there are. The certain team members after that game were whiney but it has since gone away. I didn't see the Rogers comments so I can't comment on any attitude. I think everyone just needs to not give a crap what a few idiots think. All fan bases have them, including ours.
No doubt you have a more direct, and therefore more acurate, look at fans with you actually living out there
. I can only get a long distance picture, reading fan comments and players quotes over the internet - not just for the Packers but also for my Hawks fandom, living down her in (ironically enough) Whiner's country
. I have to admit most of my impression comes from the first couple days after the game when nerves were especially raw, but I still read football fans all over message boards (pretty much of all stripe not Seahawks fans) griping vociferously about it, to the point where you'd think it was a Superbowl they were "robbed" of (as if those are in ANY way equivalent).
I'm just tired of it, and looking forward to when we can beat them decisively (like Radish was saying in another thread).
