Mooney Posted January 23, 2007 Author Share Posted January 23, 2007 I would cheer for the Bears, except for two reasons:1. The Tank Johnson incident - Apparently, it would be horrible and world-ending if he didn't carry out his full two game suspension for drugs/guns etc. No, the Bears HAD to have him play in a totally unimportant game against the Packers, which, by the way, Rex Grossman publicly said he did not prepare for. 2. Lovie Smith - When the Bears first hired him, he said all he wanted to do was beat the Packers. That's just plain sleazy. He does not deserve to win. Nuff said. 1 and 2. The Packers game was very important to the team. In case you don't know the Packers and Bears have a great rivalry between them. I don't blame them for playing Tank or for Lovie saying what he did. Then again, we all saw how bad that game turned out for them.Oh, I am quite aware of the rivalry. Having grown up in Wisconsin, I do believe I understand it enough. I'm not sure you understand why I think the Tank Johnson thing is bullshit. About a year ago, the night before a completely unimportant Bears game (which had no effect on playoff status or anything) the Bears held a meeting for sports analysts at ESPN, as they usually do. In that meeting, the Bears announced who they were going to have start at QB. An ESPN intern who had been at the meeting leaked the info to a radio station, which then publicly broadcast it. Now, remember that this wasa COMPLETELY unimportant game, and that it was the night before. The Bears got in a big huff, and said they would never talk to ESPN again unless the intern, who was not being payed anyway, was fired. Now, after one of their players got into trouble with DRUGS, they couldn't have him out for two games, oh no! They thought he should get a second chance! Hypocrisy, that's what that is.
