Greetings from the Frozen Tundra, friends!
Oh boy. Last Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers was a thriller, and made this fan of the green and gold a wee bit nervous for about the first half.
But it was after the game that I thought, "WHOA, NELLY! What in the world is going on?"
You see, I wrote an article about the Packers' win.
And in this article, I also wrote that Cam Newton was not being a good teammate due to his antisocial behavior (aka playing peek-a-boo with the camera by putting a towel over his face).
And let me tell you, I came face to face with my football-related biases.
Meaning, I became aware that not everyone feels the same way I do about certain football players. Such as my general dislike of Cam Newton, even though he is a good quarterback.
Meanwhile, others will fight to the death for a certain player. Duly noted.
I've had this discussion many times before with family and friends, as you have probably had as well.
"I don't like so-and-so as a quarterback."
"I don't know. I just don't like him."
No further comment needed.
And, for some odd reason, in football, the mean girl comes out of me and I feel free to say, "Hey, he can win football games, but I'm still not a fan." And that's okay! We all do this, right?
With that being said, as a fan of the Green Bay Packers, here is a list of football players that you either love, or hate and some of the possible reasons behind it.
