The banner at the top of reads "The Packers Blog Born From Treachery."

Capitalizing on the success of their "We'll Never Forget You Brent" t-shirt and the ensuing frenzy that created a wildly popular "We'll Never Forget You Brent" Facebook Fan Page, Sconnie Nation has launched a blog devoted to all things Packers. The blog features news, rumors, analysis and offbeat Packers & Wisconsin lifestyle stories. It was the contributions of so many fans to the Facebook Fan Page ( that inspired the idea of a blog to continue the conversation beyond the Brent craze to the Packer faithful at large.

"We had so many fans contributing so many posts to the Facebook Fan Page that we knew we had to find an outlet to keep the conversation going," said Sconnie Nation co-founder Troy Vosseller. "The Fan Page quickly became less about Brent and more about the Packers, so this was the natural evolution." The blog is still very much a part of the Facebook Fan Page that spawned it. All of the blog's posts sync to the "We'll Never Forget You Brent" Facebook Fan Page, where most of the comments and conversation still take place amongst fans. The bloggers, some of whom were handpicked from their Facebook Fans, are all diehard Packers fans commenting on the issues pertinent to the Packers. With the NFL season only a few months away, Sconnie Nation hopes to continue to build a community for Packers fans to come together and share their thoughts and stories. Hopefully this year can bring Packers fans even closer together for reasons other than the betrayal of a former hero.
