Video: This is why Chicagoans in their 30s hate the Packers

When I was 11 years old, this was the Packers team I knew. They were terrible and couldn't play with the Chicago Bears. So what did they do? They took cheap shots all over the field, all the time. And they prided themselves on it. Not winning or playing good football, just being thugs for thugs sake.

As a veteran football fan, teams that are inadequate on the field and take out their frustrations through thuggery and cheap shots are not honorable or tough. They are just losers. So I think this is the source of my dislike of the Green Bay Packers. What yours?

Best part of this video: Johnny Morris doing color commentary. And Ditka in the trenchcoat (later in video).
