Pride in one's football team is important, but some take it a bit too far.

Some Packers fans take it a bit too far


Maybe it’s because it’s been one year since the Packers have lost a game, but there has been a noticeable drop-off in the number of domestic abuse cases attributed to a loss by the Green Bay Packers. We have all heard the stories about how the number of domestic abuse cases in Wisconsin goes up when the Packers lose.

Well, if it’s true, it’s borne out by the following incident that was reported today in the Appleton Post-Crescent.

This woman took things a bit too far.

APPLETON — A drunken woman grabbed her 11-year-old daughter by the neck and choked her on Sunday after becoming angered by the Green Bay Packers game, police said.

The 36-year-old Grand Chute woman was charged Monday in Outagamie County Circuit Court with felony child abuse and misdemeanor counts of bail jumping and disorderly conduct.

Police were called about 8:15 p.m. Sunday to a Grand Chute hotel where the girl told police her mother grabbed her by the neck during the game.

The woman was drinking alcohol and became upset because the Packers were losing to the Kansas City Chiefs. The girl said that after the Packers lost, her mother choked her again with enough force that she couldn’t breathe, the criminal complaint said.

The Post-Crescent is not naming the woman to protect the identity of the girl.

The woman’s husband told police she also threw her dinner on the floor, broke a lamp and tried to punch him in the face because she was upset about the game, the Packers’ first loss in 14 games this season.

The child abuse charge carries a maximum sentence of 12½ years of imprisonment and $25,000 in fines. The woman could face up to nine months in jail if convicted of bail jumping and 90 days on the disorderly conduct count. She is being held in jail on a $2,500 cash bond.

    It is suppose to be that the defense was tremendous, but there is the intangible “phenomenon Tebow”. I guess that deserves discussion about what the Broncos record would have Kyle Orton continued to play. It looked like a losing team with Orton. The D is great, but Tebow say what someone should get some credit for the 7-1. QB is usually judged by victory and defeat plain and simple. The numbers may not be there but the most important. Now this could be the Trent Dilfer argument again, but these reimbursements fourth quarter just make the discussion more interesting.anyway, for more news, we can visit http://www.tebowformvp.com/… thanx
