Releasing Sitton was a business decision
Football is a business. Ted Thompson’s job is to make business decisions even if they are unpopular or confusing to fans. He is not obligated to justify or explain it to fans. You may think you are entitled to an explanation, but all you are is a fan who may or may not have a piece of paper that designates you as a shareholder. Let us be clear — it is a figurehead position only as you do not have any real influence on ANY decision in the Packers organization. You are not a coach, assistant, scout or any ex- ecutive who directly affects the team and its players.
We may never know why Josh Sitton was released. Maybe Ted didn’t like him. Maybe he was asked to switch positions and refused. Maybe he wanted more money. Maybe Josh wanted to leave. Maybe he had a bad attitude in the locker room. Remember that one player does not a team make. Most importantly, let’s remember that football is still a game. Angie Schroeder Franklin, Wis.
