In todays HOF nominations with GMs  Ron Wolf,  Bobby Beathard, and the guy from Buffalo and Indy. Gil Brandt should be in as well.  My nominee would be the guy you mentioned in your post, Jack Vainisi.  The HOFers he scouted speaks for themselves, and he was vital in getting Lombardi to Green Bay.  Id puy him up there with any of those Scouts/GMs already in the HOF.

Years ago someone asked Ron Wolf what Packer should be in the HOF that wasnt?  His answer was Bobby Dillion.

Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: AR on his contract dealings

How about hearing what Rodgers actually said? It doesn't sound sinister, threatening or scary. It sounds like both sides want to make a deal. And a deal will be made. Or else get ready for a replay of the Favre Departure. And no one wants that.

Here's Part One of "the interview": http://www.espn.com/espnradio/play?id=24425278

Here's Part Two: http://www.espn.com/espnradio/play?id=24436211

If only it was that simple.  You are hearing one side of the equation.  Hes got to play the PR game too.  IMO this is much more than just making him the highest paid player in the NFL.  He deserves to be, but I think this goes beyond that.  If this was just about money, it would have been done already IMO.

Neither do I.

It can mean business partnership since the team is owned by the fans.

If this is true, this, along with the Eagles stadium, will be on my "never visit" list.

He wants a "Partnership" with the Packers.  Im not exactly sure what that means.  It could mean a lot of different things.  My main hope is they can put players around him if/when the contract is done.

Why Bobby Dillon Deserves to be Considered for the Pro Football Hall of Fame

By Bob Fox



Anyone who has read my work over the years, know that I  was on a crusade to get Jerry Kramer his rightful place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Now that goal has been accomplished (thanks to the efforts of many), the Green Bay Packers now have 25 individuals who have busts in Canton.

That number is second to only the Chicago Bears, who have 28 individuals who were honored to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Now da Bears have a rich history no doubt, but so do the Packers. In fact, Green Bay has won 13 NFL titles (including four Super Bowls) since they have been in the NFL (1921), while Chicago has won nine NFL championships (including one Super Bowl) since they have been in the NFL (1920).

I believe there are many more deserving individuals of the Packers who merit a bust in Canton and this article is the first of a multi-part series of stories which will chronicle those people.

I told Rick Gosselin (Pro Football Hall of Fame voter and a member of the Seniors Selection Committee) that I would be writing this material yesterday. Gosselin told me to make sure that Ron Kramer, Boyd Dowler and Gale Gillingham were among the players who I would list.

I told Rick that those three will indeed be included in my list of names who deserve consideration for a place in Canton.

But today’s piece is about defensive back Bobby Dillon.

Dillon was drafted in 1952 by the Packers and their phenomenal scout Jack Vainisi. No. 44 was part of a draft class which included quarterback Babe Parilli, wide receiver Billy Howton and defensive tackle Dave “Hawg” Hanner.

Unfortunately for Dillon and his comrades on the Packers, the decade of the 1950s turned out to be the worst decade that Green Bay ever had record-wise. The Packers were 39-79-2 in that decade, which equates to a .331 winning percentage.

Dillon played from 1952 through 1959 and the only year Dillon played with a Green Bay team with a winning record was his last year with the Packers, which also was Vince Lombardi’s first season in what later became “Titletown.”

Green Bay Packers News Talk / Re: Gute interested in Khalil Mack
« Last post by The GM on Today at 07:42:38 AM »
I see it reported that the Raiders have no intentions of parting ways with Mack.

So, maybe we can put this to bed and get back to Packer football.

This wont go away until Mack is resigned or traded.  It may settle down as the season gets underway but it will heat up again as the trade deadline approaches if it hasnt been resolved by then.  This will be a back story  as the season progresses and rumors about many teams will be out there as long as he isnt reporting to the Raiders.

Read AR's comments he is saying all the right things.  Has to be a win win for both sides.  Doesn't want to cripple the Pack.  Wants more rings and focused on football not contract discussions.  Both sides are talking that is good.  It would behoove the Packers to drag it out for awhile.  See how he performs in the regular season.  He looked good in limited action but with a contract of this magnitude their are risks.  Specifically we sign him to a massive contract with guaranteed cash and then he goes down.  This is the nightmare scenario I worry about the most.  As others have pointed out he still has 2 years left on his contract.  Usually we do deals with one year remaining.  No rush on this other than the media fanning the flames.  Don't think there is a risk of upsetting Rodgers unless a deal isn't done before next season.
