We Go Green Bay

We went Green Bay. Didn't see a game because training camp just started today. We went to the shareholders meeting.

This is a video I shot showing the crowd at the shareholders meeting. There is no sound as my old camera does video but without sound.

The money from buying my share probably went to pay for one of the seats in this picture and the one below, but I doubt if I'll ever be able to sit in one (did sign up for a drawing for tickets to a game in Sept). Tickets for Packer games are some of the hardest tickets to get. When season tickets for these seats went on sale, they went to people who had been on a waiting list for an average of 30 years. Now those are die-hard fans!!

Some of the improvements were new seats and the giant screens on both ends of the field.
These signs are on the streets around the stadium. Not sure how many blocks from the stadium they go, but first noticed them about a half dozen blocks away.


  1. why should they need money from 'shareholders?" They make billions.

    this must be a program to help the poor rich.

  2. The Packers are the only team in the NFL that is owned by shareholders. It has always been owned by people in and around Green Bay. (There is no rich bastard owner!!) Green Bay is one of the smallest markets in the NFL, so while they do make a profit, they don't make billions.

    The last share sale enabled them to make improvements to the stadium, the new seating at the south end. It now has more seats than the Cowboys.

  3. Saskatchewan Roughriders of the CFL are owned the same way. Green and White fans are LOYAL.
