Someone Wrote a Nice Note to Anthony Barr

Aaron Rodgers final play

A lot of people think the hit that broke Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone was cheap. Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr drove Rodgers into the ground on the play.

It seemed unnecessary.

This isn’t the first time Barr has been accused of being cheap. Anthony Barr, in fact, has always been a cheap piece of crap. No wonder he plays for the Vikings!

One particular Packer fan decided to write Barr a note about the play. He wasn’t too pleased.

Anthony Barr note

Just for the record, that is not my handwriting.

I’m not sure how Barr is going to get his neck snapped, but I would would like to see him get his payback, whatever that might be.

  1. It was probably wrote by Daniels. A lot of tough talk before a game then he is out of the picture. That is until he takes an unnecessary penalty that hurts his teammates.

    Gee, when I saw the title, that Barr got a nice note from someone I thought it was maybe Aaron Rodgers apologizing for screaming profanity at Barr on the field in front of children and also apologizing for publicly and in premeditation framing Barr as causing Rodgers to behave like a jerk instead of taking responsibility for his own actions.

    Ha, I should have known better!

    Let’s see here=

    *Misinterpretation of an event even when caught on video and reviewed in slow mo in detail by experts?
    *Name-calling?
    *Name-calling in which the mother of alleged (but actually innocent) offender is attacked?
    *Hoping and wishing for a horrific injury?
    *Invoking the Daryl Stingley tragedy to threaten on false grounds?

    Sounds like a Packers fan alright!

      Go away. Way to generalize packers fans. As if there aren’t Vikings fans that wouldn’t do the same thing. Seriously, you offer nothing of value here. This isn’t your team, there is no reason to be here

          In defense of killer, and this pains me to write.

          It’s obvious other aspects of society have shunned him, like viking fans, probably even his own family.

          So, i don’t condone anything he says, nor do i condone his existence here. But my humanitarian nature understands he needs human interaction to feel accepted by society, albeit, an internet society. We don’t know the depths of his despair, we don’t know the emotional pain he feels when he wakes up in the morning.

          But here’s the thing, he hasn’t loaded the gun yet, it’s the Holiday season where experts have noted this time period is a high risk period for those suffering. I don’t want to be responsible.

          So at least for the Holiday season, lets try and prevent a tragedy.

          Thank you all for understanding.

        Sounds like Karo and Piffle agree that Packer fan is out of line and not mentally fit. They sure don’t argue against it.

        Kato has a point that I did generalize Packer fans (in a teasing fashion but, still…). There certainly are some very cool Packer fans. And one heck of a lot of *sshole Packer fans. If this site were considered a “fan” then they would fall into the second group as they both failed to condemn the message while also propagating it. Even said they’d like for Barr to “get his payback” — weird, payback for playing football hard and tough and by the rules and the way it was mean to be played? Sooooo…. you mean a long-term lucrative contract extension? Hey, I agree!

        As per my own contribution, some are not a fan of free speech or perspective. You can lead a horse to water or (some) Packer fans to wisdom buuuuuuuut….

        You are, of course, welcome to skip my posts. Your choice. Piffle though, is addicted. I’m like crack to him.

          Quit playing victim. No one is trying to take away your freedom of speech. My question is, what is your end goal of posting here? What are you hoping to accomplish? Basically, you come off as a troll. A shit lord. Quite frankly, in my opinion, I think Barr had a clean initial clean hit. I think after the hit, the driving of him into the ground was totally unnecessary, and was probably done with intent to injure.

            Side note from a Vikings fan, KILLER stop being such a douche.

          • KILLER

            End goal? I am, at all times, accomplishing my goal. I’m not trying to get there, I am already there.

            As for the hit, glad you agree it was clean. Played by the rules and we’ve all seen Rodgers pretend to pass and then pull it down and run down the sidelines, afterwards smugly smiling at the embarrassed defender. Barr wasn’t going to let that happen.

            The next part, driving him into the ground, is a fiction. Picking up and driving down is driving into the ground. Landing on someone is known as “landing on someone”. That, by the way, happens during the vast majority of tackles in football and defenders are taught to do it that way. It is part of proper tackling procedure. It is also smart because a human body is much softer than turf. So, instead of trying to injury someone it is actually part of preventing injury! (Granted, to himself, but that is the way it is.)

            Remember, Rodgers did not follow and obey his training on how to take a tackle, putting out his throwing arm (!) to hopelessly cushion (!?!) his fall, and his own lack of discipline and focus is what caused that injury.

            So, really, that fan should be making threats towards Rodgers!

          Being new to this site, I’ll say I was embarrassed to read letter to Barr the guy that posted it is as much a jackass as the guy who wrote. That said, you sound like a jackass also. So I think I’ll just stay away from totalpackers

    • KILLER

      They do. Sometimes. He did it after Rodgers yelled all sorts of profanity at him. He did it in reactive response. Everyone could see and hear Rodgers antics. Barr did his stealthily from the confines of the defensive huddle well after Rodgers’ tantrum. Still not right but far fewer children saw that than Rodgers behavior. Rodgers was I’m sure in great pain but his actions, very well displayed and public, and both words and actions, and initiating the poor sportsmanship, were far worse than Barr’s behavior. A physical analogy would be Rodgers kicking Barr in the crotch and Barr firmly pushing him away in response. Who is the worse?

      I do wish Barr has not lowered himself to Rodgers’ level (or, actually, towards but not as low as his level). We should all be united that hard legal hits are true football and should be enjoyed and encouraged, no one should try or hope for injuries, and that poor sportsmanship anywhere — our team or another, star smug prick QB or not — should not be condoned.

      This site should have come out and condemned the “note” to Barr. Social responsibility!

    Hey Packer fans…….

    There is no evidence that Anthony Barr made gang symbols or anything else. He tackled Rodgers “HARD” because what Rodgers is outside the pocket and there is an option to run…….YOU tackle him…….you can say that if Rodgers didn’t pass the ball and just took the sack this wouldn’t of happened either. Competition” its a game and both players want to beat the other. If anyone is a douche its Rodgers……..so not keeping it on the field and making it an issue, but then again Rodgers has always been a douche……..calling Brett Farve an old man when they first met.

    • Kato

      Dude, you are clueless. I think most people didn’t have an issue with Rodgers being hit. He was out of the pocket. As a defensive coordinator I would have been pissed at Barr if he didn’t knock him to the ground. I think most people’s issue was Barr putting his full weight onto Rodgers. Completely unnecessary

      Steve W, you nailed it.

      Rodgers inadequacies as a human being are well-chronicled. As is the cleanness of Barr’s hit.

      I will also say this: Barr is a very hard hitter. He collides with his whole body top to bottom. He’s big and he is a former RB until just a year before he was drafted. He has been on the other end and knows legal hits — he took them and now gives them. He does not save it for Rodgers or QBs, this is how he consistently hits anyone and everyone.

      Those who play Barr need to understand and accept he goes 100%. He does not take plays off or give special allowances to pampered stars. Opponents need to accept that or stay in the locker room.

  5. Will you please stop bitching and moaning about the hit??? Barr wasn’t suspended, wasn’t fined and the play didn’t even draw a flag from the officials. I get that you are pissed that because of the hit, you probably won’t make the playoffs and it’s another wasted year with the greatest talent of all time at quarterback, but stop acting like there was some injustice that went unpunished. There wasn’t. You guys are just entitled fans who know your season is over when your QB goes down (as would most teams in the NFL). Have fun watching the playoffs on the couch with my Lions.

      Who said i was pissed about the hit? When did i EVER express being pissed off about the hit? When did i express ANY ill will towards Anthony Barr over the tackle?

      Can you show me where i posted anything negative about it? I didn’t think so. You want to call someone out, use their name.

      So who the fook you talkin to?

      Watch it fucker, or i’ll have Mordecai haunt your very existence.

      Sorry, i don’t like being left out of a scrub, and it’s all i had. : )

      Thank you for understanding

        When you wrote as Monty and again when you write as Mordecai you have. But, true, not under your guise as Piffle.

        Ha, I’m sure you could TRY to haunt his existence as Mordecai. For you are he.

      Dave the Lions fan, long time no read!

      The Packers have had an incredible string of luck at QB as per health. Not only two of the greatest QBs of all time but combine it with near-invulnerability of Favre and almost as good for Rodgers. If they were super heroes they would be like Hulk and Power Man as per invulnerability. But, of course, they are more like villains so I guess they are like… Juggernaut and … Juggernaut’s little bro who will never be as good as him.

      About a fourth to a third of QBs miss time in the season and yet the Packers have had, what, maybe three seasons out of 25 effected like that? Or is is just 2? Lucky! Spoiled Packers fans!

      Whatcha think, will the Lions beat the Packers in the season ending game? Do it, buddy!
