This is true. When the Green Bay Packers signed the biggest free agent in history — Reggie White — in 1993, it changed the NFL landscape. It made the Packers fully legitimate and it made Reggie White a Super Bowl champion.
You know, I don’t live in Wisconsin anymore, so it’s kind of hard to follow Wisconsin politics. However, I do know this. Governor Scott Walker and Speaker Paul Ryan sit at the right hand of Donald Trump. They also both really like the Packers.
They seem to utilize the Packers whenever they can.
So when Walker announced some Foxconn deal today, he compared it to the Packers signing Reggie White. Transformational, he said.

I’m not going to pretend I know anything about this deal, although, at a glance, it certainly seems debatable how transformational it will be.
Lot of ins and outs, as The Dude would say.
But what I’d like to suggest is this.
It’s something I think we can all agree on, regardless of political leaning or affiliation. Politicians can piss off in using sports analogies to promote their politics. Especially those that are related to the Green Bay Packers.
Am I right?
The association of C- student Walker with the Packers seems highly appropriate.
Hmm…did you take the time to look up another State’s politician’s grades from decades ago? Or are you just making shit up as you go along like you usually do?
I miss Reggie. Great player to watch but more importantly it was privledge to hear him speak..
Walkers comparison is correct. You admitted that you don’t know much about the deal and yet you spouted off.
You are a typical Liberal who doesn’t know the facts but has an opinion based on your feelings. You should just write about football
Really? What are the “facts” about Foxconn that you know? Are they like the facts that justified Walker spending $250 million tax dollars on a new Bucks arena because it would help the whole state?
Foxconn is notorious for making promises they don’t keep. Walker is using a simple memorandum that uses weasel words like “up to 10,000 jobs” and “possibly”, etc. Then the rest is assumed bullshit that he is spouting as fact. If it comes to fruition the state will pay anywhere between $300,000 and $1 million per job… and under the BEST circumstances the state won’t break even on the deal until 2033. This is just Walker campaigning for 2018, knowing that many of his rube followers will swallow it. And BTW, Reggie White would hate Walker’s attitude toward the poor.
It’s hard for me to believe Scott Walker isn’t in jail.
Ok, that’s just about enough!!
If you guys feel that strongly about Walker, then petition to recall Walker. OOPS!!…..wait, that was tried already, then in the recall election Walker beat his opponent worse than the 1st election.
Guess all that’s left to do is keep crying. Good luck with that.
Thank you for understanding.
Reggie White hated faggots, that’s why he wouldn’t have been able to stand Walker. Or pf4l for that matter.
I’m sure the Redskins thought signing Albert Haynesworth was just like signing Reggie White too..
Just ask Pennsylvania how that plant deal they made with Foxconn worked out. This is more like the Packers’ trading for and signing John Hadl.
