  • Sat., Apr. 26, 2014 8:00AM - 6:00PM CDT Packers Pro Shop Tent Sale

    The sale is taking place earlier than in previous years, due to the construction at Lambeau Field and the work that the Pro Shop team must complete in preparation for the new store, which will open this summer. Visitors to Lambeau Field should enter the Atrium through the Oneida Nation Gate. Parking is available in the lot on Lambeau Field’s east side near the Oneida Nation Gate, which can be accessed off Oneida Street and Lombardi Avenue.

    The sale will feature the traditional mix of Pro Shop items greatly reduced in price and other special purchases.

    The team’s football operations staff also has provided Packers team apparel no longer in use, including a large assortment of t-shirts, shorts, jackets, jerseys and pants. Some items are practice-worn gear not normally available in the Pro Shop.

    The tent sale began in 1994 in the parking lot outside the former Pro Shop on the north end of Lambeau Field and grew into a popular event. Now in its 11th year in the Atrium, the tent sale also was held in the west side stadium concourse in previous years.

    I was under the impression that when one of the recievers on a punt return called for a fair catch if another player fielded the ball the ball was dead at that point. I must have been mistaken?

    Hey Vic
    Concerning press conferences. I view Coach McCarthy as being very available, very professional, very controled during press conferences. He seems open and informative, and non-combative. Give us some insight as to how you see he; compare him to other coaches; rate his availablility etc. Thanks.

    It seems to me that these past 3 games the packers have had serious problems with there secondary. And it was also apparent Peprah needed some new cleats. On a serious note, what is going on with the secondary and what in your mind should they do to prevent the over the middle passes? The secondary seems non exsitent

    What I saw was alot of blitzing. Maybe more than was necessary. I saw Matthews lined up with the D line nearly the whole game trying to blitz Cuitter. He’s a MLB!!! Line him up in the middle to help protect the middle. I saw the middle wide open before the snap even happened. If I can see that from my TV, why can’t the D coaches see it. I read something like 48 yards after the catch each game when thrown to the middle. Capers and the Linerbackers coach have got to fix that little problem. Other than that, GOOD GAME!! GO PACK GO!!

    Too many good perfornances by the Pack to mention. Loved the way Grant ran the ball, and Finley is simply amazing. Won’t give up on my hometown boy James Starks even tho he struggled Sunday, he’ll make an impact during the season and post season.

    Thought for sure Ditka would be here discussing the game with us. Probably re-injured his knee slipping on a banana peel while getting off the bus again. Go Pack Go…

    @Larry Moore,
    All coaches are afraid of press conferences these days because the slightest mistake will result in a SportsCenter moment. Mike McCarthy works to answer questions in press conference settings, but I think we can all detect the hesitation. He’s one of the best one-on-one interviews of any coach I’ve ever covered, and that’s because he’s a regular guy who likes to talk football.

    @John,
    You are not mistaken. When a fair catch signal is given, the ball is dead where a teammate fields it.

    @Cali – Matthews is not, and has never been a middle linebacker for the Packers.
