    Heres an interesting article about how the packers wanna deal with eli............. i have a question for ppl, which show do u guys think the foxborough stations should play/not play for LT and the chargers?...EVERYBODY HATES LT...............Zeroes...........THE BIG CHOKE THEORY...............THE BIGGEST LOSER..................

    "it’s long been shown that having the home-field advantage is a tremendous help to any team. But with the Green Bay Packers, they really have a home-state advantage. They’ve moved around their church services, and now they’re doing everything they can to rattle the Giants. And one of those things includes taking “Seinfeld” off the air.

    WLUK, the Fox affiliate in Green Bay airs reruns of “Seinfeld,” including ones on Saturdays at 5:30p CT. Giants QB Eli Manning is a fan of the show...and so the station has pulled the program.

    "That's exactly when Eli will be relaxing in his downtown Appleton hotel room getting ready for Sunday's game," WLUK says in a news release. "Why give comfort to the enemy?" said Jay Zollar, general manager. "Green Bay Packers fans do not want any of the New York Giants to get a good night's sleep, and Fox 11 will do its part."

    And so the good folks of Green Bay and its surrounding areas have a choice as to what thrilled program they’ll get instead. An episode of “M*A*S*H*,” a Vince Lombardi special and a rerun of Donald Driver’s weekly show are the options. Umm, does everyone have to suffer?

    I’ve never seen Wisconsinites act meanly or maliciously, and this surely isn’t either – it’s all in good fun. But if I were Eli, or any of the other Giants, I’d learn a lesson from Kobe and bring my own food on this road trip as well."

    this is the most hilarious act of home field advantage i have ever heard.

    'comfort to the enemy?' oh man, that brings up bad memories of some political speeches that i won't get into.

    Yeah, I'm sure this is really going to mess up Eli's game, not being able to watch Seinfeld while he's in Wisconsin. :rolleyes:

    I think it's a nice show of support from the Packers' home state.

    It's just a goof and a way to get the fans involved that can't go to the game. I think TBS is showing Seinfeld at the same time anyway.

    hmmm, anyone know if any Boston stations carry re-runs of Simon & Simon? If they do, maybe they could pull them.....you know as a show of support and make the Chargers feel uncomfortable. (I hear Merriman loves AJ.)

    Leave it to those hayseeds in Wisconsin to pull a bush league stunt like that; I hope Lord Favre and the Packers lose 56-0.............

    If they want to screw up the Chargers all they need to do is turn off the spectravision.

    Look, there is only two games this week.

    How many different ways can you say: Pats are 16-0 and the Bolts are on a hot streak. And Farve is old and Manning is young.

    Major stories of the week to fill -in the time.

    If I were Bob Kraft I would have a music video made showing the Pats dancing at the end of the Chargers game last year. Then make a deal with the hotel and hijack every channel in the rooms and show the video nonstop on every channel. I can just picture LT now:

    "WTF", click, "WTF", click, "WTF!!!", click

    Sunday morning LT will be hanging from the rafters.
