The state of Packer fans

Well it's almost all said and done now, the season is coming to an end and us Packer fans are on the verge of surviving one of the rockiest season probably in the history of our very proud franchise. I know that the Packers have had worse seasons than this and some  fans (I'm only 29 so I don't remember it) have endured decades of heartbreak, disappointment and losing. But this season is very differant. Never in the history of the Greeen Bay Packers has there ever been such a devide in the fans ands turmoil over the fans view of the front office. Now there will always be people who hate the coach or hate the GM, that's a no brainer. There was plenty of people who didn't like Ron Wolf and thought Holmgren was an ego maniac. This however is not the point. So we bring in Ted Thompson. A guy who nobody knew much about and just as a person he kinda rubs people the wrong way. And to speed this up Ted Thompson ends up trading the best thing that has happened to our franchise in 30 years. What has happened is obviously for the first time in history, what have been long considered the best and most loyal fans in the U.S have split in half. Now all we do is argue quite relentlessly. It has even caused hate between our fans. I personally find this very sad. I've never gotten in such heated arguments with people as I do about the Packers now. So as we sit as Packer fans vulnerable for the first time I simply ask how do we fix this? And I don't mean fire Ted Tompson type thing. I mean when do we start treating each other with respect again? Like respecting anothers opinion and not calling someone an idiot for having a differant vision for the team. I know I'm guilty of this as well, and sometimes when I read what I've wrote to people and what people havew written to each other it makes me sick. I can't wait for the day when as a whole again we are united. Here's to hoping, Go Pack Go!!!!!!
