Your hatred for all things Murphy is bizarre.   It's always a fun game to guess which thread one of these comments will pop up next.   The answer seems to be "ALL"

The Patriots routinely hold joint practices (2018 being the exception) and they are right back at it again this year.    Probably why they lack any team success and production...

The day Murphy leaves the Packers will be a great day for the football people in the Packers organization, even if most fans are unaware of their great gain by his departure.

Good for O'Brien.  It will be interesting to see if Johnson suits up on Thursday Night.

@WesHod
LaFleur if he’d want to host a joint practice again: “Absolutely. 100 percent id like to do it again. Would like to do multiple joint practices” #Packers


This football person seems fine with joint practices.

New employee echoes company line, that's a shocker.

I'll see your LaFleur and raise you a Rodgers.

Rodgers comments on the joint practice reportedly were due to the vanilla offense the Packers ran the past 2 days against the Texans.  Apparently the offense was scaled back quite a bit the past few days much to Rodger's shagrin. Regardless, there are many pro's and con's to a joint practice

Why does inter-team practice necessitate vanilla-izing the offense?

The vanilla offense take is just lip service as an attempt to defuse a situation of the media running with 'a rife is developing between Rodgers and his HC'. Their are many reasons for players wanting to avoid these joint practices, but it does appear that the league is angling toward them ahead of the CBA.

The first seed has been planted for 2 preseason games, one home and one away with joint practices conducted at the home teams field the week of each game. The NFL will then conclude that if they play two less preseason games, they can play two more regular season games. MLF is just being a good soldier here and that is what he should do, he has been briefed and his lips have been loaded. People can love it or hate it, but the NFL usually gets what the NFL wants.

Media continue hyping supposed rife between Rogers and Lafleur on joint practices. Fake news. Rogers is expected to talk with the media. When asked Rogers gives an honest, personal opinion on those joint practices followed by a disclaimer that such decisions are not his to make. That last part is omitted by the media to hype a story line they are hoping to develop. Media hype for click bait. Yucky

If I remember correctly, you see Murphy as more of a businessman rather than a guy who is focused on putting the best team on the field. That the Packers are only part of a larger endeavor, not the reason for the other side businesses. If I am wrong, please feel free to correct me. Murphy does seem to like power, changing the power structure of the team so all roads lead to Murphy's office. There were articles exploring the inner workings of the Packers organization, with some guys coming off as more interested in advancing their own interests, rather than the overall good of the team.

Good old Google comes to the rescue again! Pretty sure this has been posted before, but it may be time to revisit this issue, especially since Rodgers is now playing on borrowed time.:
