No Team Should Packers Fans Hate More Than the San Francisco 49ers
Rivals and rivalries are a funny thing. I remember when Tosa East used to kick our ass in basketball, they would chant ‘Not our rival.’ It hurt but in a lot of ways, it had some truth baked in. Tosa West never was on the level of Tosa East during that time. Times have changed despite the Raiders winning a state title last year. And rivals can change pretty quickly. There are always your standard rivals. And for Green Bay, Chicago and Minnesota will always be there. But there is no team that Packers fans shouldn’t want to see fail more than San Francisco. All signs point to them as the leak for the Aaron Rodgers drama, and if that’s the case, they can fuck off forever.
From the knowledge that people are gathering with both shock and dismay from both Rodgers’ camp and the Packers’ camp, it seems like neither of them is the leak. Knowing that San Francisco called Green Bay to trade for Rodgers, they put this story in hyperdrive in a brazen attempt to force Green Bay’s hand. Niners are very tied into the media with John Lynch previously working at FOX and having a connection with Adam Schefter during Lynch’s late-career Denver seasons. They put it in motion and away the news cycle went. Yes, this was going on behind the scenes, but no one could confirm every detail. San Francisco blew it out of the water and there you have it.
This team is the biggest bunch of try-hard assholes I’ve seen in recent memory. San Francisco’s end game is basically ‘Well since we really want Rodgers to let’s try to blow up their relationship.’ Now, it’s news. Now, it’s the second time San Francisco screwed over Rodgers. Instead of Green Bay trying to do this quietly and in the shadows, it’s wide open. It puts everyone in a tough spot. All because San Francisco thought they had a shot at the power play. I can’t tell you how much those guys piss me off.
If the Packers are back with Rodgers, the Niners-Packers game this year will have some sort of juice.
