It is absolutely incredible how brave some people get when it comes to things that they are willing to say online. For some odd reason they seem to forget that when they comment on stories or pictures that they are about someone or of someone--actual people.
That doesn't stop them though. Since they don't have to say whatever they are typing to the person that seems to make it easy. Be forced to say whatever horrible thing they typed to that person's face and more often than not they can't. It's different when it is a real person and not an image on a computer screen.
Take the case of the young lady in the video, Kaitlyn Collins. She was once a cheerleader for the Green Bay Packers. Recently a Chicago Bears Fan page on Facebook posted a picture of her and elicited comments from fans.
Many of them ripped her to shreds saying the kinds of things that would be hard to imagine a stranger saying to another for no apparent reason. In all fairness, there were some that came to her defense, but there were many that did not.
I applaud her for taking such a humane approach to the whole mess. I sure wouldn't. It amazes me how hurtful people are toward each other simply because of the team the other supports or cheers for. To go to the extent that these people did is reprehensible.
Shame on Facebook for leaving the pic and comments up and even more to the Chicago Bears fan(s) that are the administration for that page. Time to grow up and take the picture down.
Then again, if Jay Cutler was my team's quarterback I guess I would be lashing out too...

(Just kidding Jay; wanted to give Bears fans a small taste of their own medicine.Oh, and Kaitlyn--totally dig the INXS style video; using their song would have been better.)

Jermichael Finley is at a crossroads in his Green Bay career. The Packers have a decision to make in terms of whether or not they want to pay him a $3 million in March.
If the Packers release Finley, it would save the team $8.25 million in salary cap space. Finley during an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, said it’s a 50/50 chance that he’s back with the Packers...
It’s been a tough year for Bears fans. Their team failed to make the playoffs AND they lost their coach. So in typical, classy Bears fan fashion, they took their aggression out on the person who REALLY deserved it. A former cheerleader for the Green Bay Packers.
Someone put up a picture of Kaitlyn Collins on a Bears Facebook fan page and decided to diss her looks. And of course...
Since free agency became the norm in the NFL there has been one thing that has been slowly dying out--team longevity. Fewer and fewer players are staying with one team opting to head for greener pastures (more money), but not necessarily a better team.
When the Green Bay Packers season ended one of their greats, wide receiver Donald Driver, decided to call it a career. Here...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Donald Driver went out in style, retiring from the Green Bay Packers in a way that no one else in the franchise's illustrious history ever had.The Packers' all-time leading receiver in yards and catches held a public ceremony Wednesday morning inside the Lambeau Field Atrium. Driver was joined by 1,000 of his most die-hard fans, most of whom waited outside...
How does an NFL quarterback propose to his reality star girlfriend these days? By popping the question via text message, of course.This is precisely the route Chicago Bears signal caller Jay Cutler took when asking for Kristin Cavallari's hand in marriage. Cutler pulled the trigger in November 2011 after the two initially became engaged in April 2011. They called things off...

Jim McMahon appears to have had enough of all the golfing and drinking he does in Arizona. The former Chicago Bears QB is selling his Scottsdale mansion for just under $2.4 million. The place boasts an outdoor paradise and one of the coolest home offices we’ve ever seen.
According to Realtor, this is McMahon’s second major real estate dump since 2009 when he sold a Chicago-area...

I want to first thank all the fans for coming out today. I know a lot of you waited in line in the cold to get your tickets and you waited this morning, so give yourselves a round of applause.
It's always a little bittersweet when a great player's career ends like Donald's. But this is just special day. It's a great day for the...
Bears quarterback Jay Cutler has explained away a lot of obnoxious, very Jay Cutler behavior. He has reasons why he shouted at teammates, blew off coaches on the sidelines or generally just doesn’t look invested in life.
But he’s going to need a pretty good explanation when it comes to why he was such a schmuck when he proposed to his girlfriend.
Kristin Cavallari is counting...
In order to upgrade the offensive line this offseason, the Chicago Bears would be better off acquiring established players in free agency, instead of throwing away high draft picks.
Ok, Roste hasn’t loved the love fest for Double D…even though he is a class act and a Packer and all… I mean it was INSANELY out of control, however this is pretty damn cool. Only Packer Fans! I love my Green and Gold Baby!

Despite a disappointing end to his 2012 season, Aaron Rodgers still tops the 2013 Fantasy PPR QB Rankings.
Even though the Super Bowl literally ended just days ago, the National Football League is a year-round sport and so is fantasy football. Therefore, despite the fact that the 2013 season is still a good eight months away, it is never too early to take a stab at ranking the...
