I helped see us through the "fiasco", along with the rest of the "former" "staff", and got to know so many of you on more than the "surface" level. I am extremely proud of Kevin, Shawn, Rourke, myself and Porky for that.

This site not only survived during that experience, it actually thrived... because of that "team" of differing views, but with a strong sense of fairness being universal...

This is NOT what I am most proud of, as regarding Packershome.com

What I AM proud of.... is taking a little time and trouble to explain to a fellow member from another packer forum "how we roll" at packerhome.com

...and he tried it. ....and he LOVED it....and now, you love him...I absolutely do, on a selfish level...

I intend to do the exact same thing this year, with a different fella...

It would be excellent if I was not alone.

Go get one. It isn't that hard.

Really... this site is free, except for our personal investments in it.

Go get one friend. I'm not talkin' "GAY PRIDE WEEK" OR NOTHIN'... LOL

Just make ONE committment (for once) to (SOMETHING) -- It really beats the hell out of constantly "just bitching".

I know this is futile, to a degree, but you are a f*ck-off, imo if you do not try.

I also admit I am opinionted, you lazy bastard.

I take a lot of pride in this site too. I feel like I have a vested interest in it, and to some extent (though I know this is pure personal hubris), I feel as though I still help run it.

I talk about the community here at PackersHome.com almost everyday to people I meet, and I encourage them to join up. I often wonder if any of our new members are people I recruited.

I've made some personal friends here, and our friendship extends outside this forum. I even consider a couple of you confidantes. (You know who you are.)

To all of you, I just want to say . . . "Thank you."

All I'm asking for is a modicum of leadership.

We have too many followers, and way too many "bitchers"

Does ANYONE ever STEP UP anymore?..

It's hard to get more Viking fans to register and hang with punches on a Pukers forum.

I gave the link to a long time friend a few weeks back. He said he was going to register and check it out. He is pretty busy with admistrating a fantasy baseball league so we shall see.

I was talking to a young Packer fan today, and wrote down the site name for him. I told him how great a place this is!
I don't know if he will join or not, but i hope he does!

I've told one of my friends--he says he's visited before and read a couple things but never posted. He'll probably have to jump in once the season gets under way.

Living in London, it is difficult to find football fans. My presence on football forums is limited to Packershome because it provides me with everything, most of all smart, insightful posters who I learn from by reading their take on things.

I am very intolerant, and reading the comments on nfl.com pretty much puts me off even registering an interest anywhere outside of packershome.

That being said, I do have one Packer running buddy who browses these forums.

I do appreciate all and each members contributions to the website. Lord knows, I'd still be talking to only Shawn and Nick if ya all wouldn't have came. :)

I'm not one for advertising, because I'm afraid of the saying 'you get what you ask for'. I like how our site is right now. Small with really great members. I like that we don't have a plethora of new people all the time, unless it was the majority being good of course.

I love how, when you add all the jersey numbers up and divide them by 3, you have the average IQ of the players on your avatar.

I have one friend who likes football. He's a Patriots fan who hates forums.

I think a PackersHome youtube page would do wonders in spreading the word. Even though it may be an open invitation for trolls (read youtube comments) I am sure some good can come of it.

It would be a prime way to expose people to the intelligent content they can expect from PackersHome.

Looking at the threads where the likes of Porky take the effort to break down a specific play/package - I am of the opinion that something like this would translate well into youtube medium via voice and pictures.

Voicechat roundtable type discussions regarding everything Packers (or other stuff) with a couple pictures if necessary, I don't know, I think something like this would worka treat. These things can end up a trainwreck but with the calibre of members this website has, I am confident it would be interesting and fun.

Ironman has a well designed youtube page - have a look at it yall if you haven't already seen it.
