  • Ted Thompson...

    Guys, I read an intriguing comment by a reader at PFT regarding Ted Thompson. (Packers GM.) I just thought this was pretty interesting stuff so I'd share and see if anyone else had heard anything along this line before.

    "People keep forgetting this is Ted Thomspon - the same guy who lied to Jerry Rice and told him Steve Largent wanted him to wear his retired number (Largent is a GOD in Seahawks Stadium - greatest Seattle athlete EVER and a total legend here). Largent said he never said that, and was only asked if Rice could wear his number (who’s going to refuse?). Ted Thompson thought “Rice #80″ jerseys would sell well in Seattle, and even said so in the press. Paul Allen told him not to let the door hit his ass on the way out. Yeah. Try wearing a Rice/80 jersey to the South End Zone and see how many popularity contests you win. People have had the “Rice” badges ripped off their jerseys. That is blasphemy here. They didn’t even sell the jerseys in the stadium, you could only buy them online, because of the public outrage over it.

    This Ted Thompson guy is such a douchebag, he would crap on Canton’s entry stairs if he thought he could make a buck. Why did Green Bay think he would treat Favre any differently?

    The same team that’s gonna have Favre as a starting QB this season (and where he will retire) is the same team that got Steve Hutchinson due to Thompson’s mismanagement.

    And even that evil bastard Ken Behring didn’t unretire Largent’s number. You just don’t do that. Even he knew he’d get barbequed down in Pioneer Square and fed to the drunks. Largent is GOD.

    Oh, and another legacy of Ted Thompson’s reign of terror in Seattle: He refused to work with Diamond Parking, who owns the lots around Seahawk Stadium, to negotiate designated tailgating zones (after 30+ years in the neighborhood). Because he refused to work with them, tailgating is banned in Seattle. You’ll see a few in the “team” vans, and they have these lame pseudo-parties now, but tailgating is forbidden (even if you bring red plastic cups). Dude… how does that happen?

    This guy is a class-A douche. You didn’t read about it in your east coast papers because nobody really pays attention to the NW. That’s fine, and we really don’t care, because all your bases are belong to us, but still… any questions about Ted Thompson’s management tactics will lead to belly laughter from the Seahawks’ front office… he’s your problem now, Green Bay. And it appears he is doing his job as well as ever.

    I’m surprised Florio has not reported on any of these well-known and well-publicized issues regarding Ted Thompson’s destructive reign in Seattle. That guy was the worst thing to happen to Seattle since Ken Behring. He is HATED here. I’ve heard rumors that if you whisper his name near the Stadium, you will be flogged mercilessly with Terrible Towels."

    WFB Comments on Vikings @ Steelers Game Rigging
    PuppyPuncher:"It sure was nice enough of Roger Goodell to let the refs from Ark-Florida officiate the Vikings-Steelers game"
    NoNonsenseCoach:"As a Steelers fan living in Pittsburgh I can still admit that tripping penalty was a complete ghost call."
    Simonds:"The tripping call was awful, yes, but there were a number of other absurd calls that went against the Vikings, including a DEFENSIVE delay of game penalty against the Vikings only called after a failed attempt to convert a third and 2 by the Steelers. Even the commentators were utterly floored that the refs made that call."
    Wraith36444:"A shady tripping call on Minnesota essentially gave the game to the Steelers. The Vikings were the better team, but it is too hard to beat a decent team and the refs. Oh and Harvin is the man."
    MaineMan:"I have to agree that it was an awful call and that it changed the outcome. Overall a great game by the Vikes and tragic that the well-deserved victory was stolen away like that."
    PaddyPatriot:"I've seen this play and I have to agree, I can't believe they called it tripping"
    Johndoe:"You know the officiating is bad when a Steeler's fan, like myself, thinks it was pretty bad."
    Steelers_Pens_Fan:"I will admit that the whole "tripping" thing probably shouldn't have been a flag."
    ZN0rseman:"It's great to know that good old fashioned pro football game rigging is still alive and well in America."
    Klunker18:"I'm with Z on this one. Definitely one of those games that makes you wonder if the NFL wants certain teams to win."
    TRICKaz"I agree that was a BS call"
    InjuredReserve:"Have yet to hear anyone say it was the right call. Seems as if the Vikings were cheated a bit."
    Eagles4Life:"Coaches just need to be able to challenge penalties"
    EL_Guapo:"The tripping call was bad, the delay of game was stupid Either way, the Vikings showed they are a top team."
    EllijayFalconsFan:"The tripping penalty was rediculous."
    Archon095:"Even as a Steeler fan I agree that the call was bull."
    BroncosCon:"I'm sorry that was a total bull**** call and it changed the outcome of the game. Pittsburgh still won, but it was almost like Denver winning at Cincy."

    Tony Dungy:"The Vikings are just one bad tripping penalty away from being undefeated.
    Jon Gruden:"That was just a bad, bad call. It cost the Vikings an important win at Pittsburgh, and it could really hurt them in the post season."

        There is a definite anti-Thompson anywhere. The national media loves Favre and thinks 1) all, I stress ALL, the Packer's success was due to Favre 2) because of the freakish things he did back in the day from 1995-2002.

        One really good point were brought up by a local sports stations (WSSP). Who was scouting for Wolf under Wolf?? Thompson...and this was brought up by Wolf himself.

        LEGAL DISCLAIMER: Not that I'm a complete Thompson defender (like some WF member is to some Viking QB..). Last year and this one I wanted TT to get some big-name guy. Just one. And Harrell? Reach anyone? And hearing that he could have traded down and get a #1 this year. Ahhh!

        But I'd rather have him than Mike "Salary Cap issues" Sherman....
        And now for something completely different

            I think the dude only hates Ted Thompson because he gave up Steve Hutchinson to the Vikings. With him went any real semblance of a Seahawks running game, and any sense of respectability for winning their division nonstop. The fact that the Seahawks have to air it out all the time b/c their RB's can't get the job down just makes the NFC West an ever bigger crapshoot, and them all the more one-dimensional. Don't we all miss the days when they'd pulverize their division foes by running them the **** over? I do. Matt Hasselbeck would take advantage of eight men in the box. That's why his numbers last year were all the more surprising, because people were stacked against the pass once they figured out Maurice Morris and the decrepit corpse couldn't run the ball.

              Shaun Alexander's career was destroyed the second he realized rushing yards would no longer be handed to him on a silver platter.
