Re­leas­ing Sit­ton was a busi­ness de­ci­sion

Packer Plus - - Commentary -

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.
