  • 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.

Hargrove’s suspension upheld

Posted by Mike Spofford on July 3, 2012 – 3:08 pm

Packers defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove’s eight-game suspension for his role in the New Orleans Saints bounty program has been upheld by Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Hargrove, signed by the Packers on March 30, is suspended without pay for the first eight games of the 2012 season.

Goodell kept all bounty-related player suspensions in place, leaving Saints LB Jonathan Vilma suspended for the full season. Saints DE Will Smith remains suspended for four games, while LB Scott Fujita, now with the Browns, is suspended for three games.

    We kept #4 even when we knew he had an addiction problem with painkillers. So give Jolly 1 last chance and let him know that this is the end of the chance road. One more screw-up and it hit the road John, period! Your either here to be dedicated about playing football or your not.

    Yes and Favre come foward with the problem and put himself into rehab during the off season.. Jolly has had 4 drug related arrests in as many years. Favre was never arrested… I don’t see any similarities in your comparison here.

    Jolly has been given multiple opportunities to get clean… Seriously… how many chances are we going to give him?

    Drug addiction is a disease, did Jolly or favre hurt anyone no? jail and suspension that is how we fix things in the nfl

  9. By Mark Becker on Jul 4, 2012 | Reply

    Drug addiction is a disease, but the decision to take the illegal drugs in the first place is not. Favre got hooked on prescription medication that started with the medication that allowed him to play. Jolly, not so much. Which of the two would you like your child/grandchild to emulate? Whether or not we like it, kids will look up to and emulate professional athletes. In a perfect world, neither is my answer, but of the two I would take the Favre situation. Jolly has had enough chances, he chose the criminal side of things.

    The Packer Organization have a standard they hold their players to. Comparing Jolly and Favre’s situation is absolutely ridiculous. My profession is addictions and mental health; my love is the Green Bay Packers, and one of my attractions to the gretaest NFL team in history is the standard they hold their personnel to.

    I believe Roger Badell didn’t really think it through. When these Saints players left that organization they left and should be free of that penalty. Let them play but fine them. What are they going to change during their suspensions? I think they’re going to come in and hit harder just to piss of the Goods!

    I sometimes wonder, if Favre had the recieving corps that Rodgers has, how good he would have really been. I mean, Rodgers is greatly overrated. His backup did better than he. If Favre had those recievers, he would have been the greatest for centuries to come. Too bad the Packers mis-used Favre. He came to us and dominated with a sub-par recieving corps.

    Hey, Vikingsfool, Sorry you don’t have a vikes blog to comment in. Favre had Freeman, chmurra and several other ones, including DD and Walker. He brought one championship. And none to Minnesota. He was great and won MVPs but let’s face it. He was an underachiever because he made poor decisions on the field. Off the field in New Jersey, too, huh? Rodgers makes very good decisions, and that’s why he’s rated number 1 by his peers. Jolly was one of my favorites, but it sounds like he’s worn out his welcome in the NFL.

    Hey vikewing fan, do the names sterling sharpe, Robert brooks, Antonio freeman, javon walker, Donald driver ring any bells..? Not to mention the running game with Amman green … the #1 defense in the league.. Dorsey levens, mark chmura, Greg Jennings, bubba franks ..offensive lines that included mark taucher, chad clifton, and Marco Rivera in their prime ….u can keep ridin that “We have AP” train all you want, but the fact of the matter is, Green Bay has been and always will be Titletown. The packers are simply a superior organization, which is hard to argue with the number of superbowls taken into account. If you watch football, then you seen how easy Aaron Rodgers made playing the hardest position against the best athletes in the world look, it was beautiful to watch. We’re not delusional, in fact, we pity you and other fans of different teams. .. PS.. I bet you would really love for your purple pen-15 eaters to win one and done ;)

    Also.. Football has no room for politics. The only thing that matters is what happens on the field. A player can do whatever he pleases when he leaves the building as long as it does not affect his availability. Who are we to judge someone’s actions as right or wrong? If Johnny jolly can come back and be consistently available, then I would love that. He played at a high level and, quite frankly, one of the worst d lines in the league (last year) could use him. With that said, I have my doubts that he still has the ability to produce as he did a few years ago and they will probably not bring him back, as they most likely have the same suspicions.

    Jolly’s horrible. I hate you Packer Fans, your so stoopid. The luckiest club in pro football. The only club that can win a championship out of pure luck. And I stand by my comments. Favre>Rodgers. And if the Packers are so great, then why didnt we win a superbowl with an ex Packer at the helm? It’s because no Packer is strong enough to break the Vikings curse. Not even the greatest QB of all time. You Packer fans should learn to embrace #4. I hope he goes in to the hof wearing a Vikings hat.

    Speaking of QB’s. I see the Packers do not have any experience at backup QB. This could be a big mistake. If Rodgers goes down, the Packers can always call Viking Great, Brett Favre into service. He could be ready to go in a weeks notice. Go Brett Go.

    When will ALL of you Packer fans realize what Brett Favre meant to the Packers organization regardless of what happened in the end? Twenty nine years of terrible teams and disappointment after the Lombardi era. Favre changed everything along with Reggie White and brought excitement and winning football back to Green Bay. Favre was treated badly in the end by the higher ups in the organization and was forced to make the decisions he did. Perhaps the greatest quarterback of all time railroaded out of Green Bay and then the fans wonder why in the world would he become a Viking? Thank Ted for that!

  30. By Vikingsfool on Jul 6, 2012 | Reply

    Yeah, thanks Ted. We enjoyed our 2009 season. I especially loved the fact that Favre stuck it to Ted and the Packers, twice. If he’d been around in 08, like he wanted to, there is no doubt that we’d have had a superbowl win in either 08 or 09. I hope Favre walks into the hof wearing a vikings hat, or a purple tie. Once again, thanks Ted. SKOLL!

    I think Johnny Jolly deserves another shot. Did anybody watch the ESPN special they did on him before he was sentenced, the guy really never had a chance growing up to learn how to act and not to act. Jolly was one of my favorite players during the 09 season because he was arguably the most athletic defensive lineman that the packers had. My favorite highlight of him that proves this is his diving interception against Jay Cutler. If hes in shape the packers need him.

  35. By Vikingfoolisanidiot on Jul 6, 2012 | Reply

    I’ll give it to ya, Fran Tarkenton was awesome. But do you know the difference between him and the three packers you named? He was 0-3 in the super bowl, while they were a collective 4-1. ..I guess it’s “stoopid” to back up your opinion with facts. I love favre and always will, but unlike the “what coulda been vikewings”, the packers have Wong super bowl since him leaving and are only looking towards the future. ..if Aaron Rodgers sucks so bad, why would you want the Vikings to sweep him up from under us..? Enjoy competing for the 1st overall pick ;)

Who have made the NFC championship game 9 times in the last 50 years? oh yeah, the Vikings. Which divisional team beat the Packers in the playoffs? oh yeah, the Vikings. The vikings have to fight for respect, the packers are an overrated Media spectacle who sell worthless peices of stock to un-educated wisconsinites. Gimme a break man.

    We all know the vikings are a joke of a team. AP can be the best RB in the league and we all know it means squat. Remember Barry Sanders? 10 times as good as AP will ever be and poor old Barry could not win a championship by himself. To the troglodite who said A-Rod was overrated, Lets see, MVP of the league, the Super Bowl, and just rated by his peers as the best player in the game. Oh yeah he also had the best passer rating in the history of the league; beating Peyton Manning. So with moron’s logic Peyton is also overrated. Then again you have to feel sorry for the guy. He’s had no real QB to compare to since Fran Tarkenton and Im sure his momma was wipin’ his butt when Fran was around. The only real thing I could see him trying to compare would be our very own Brett Favre on his last leg. Poor fool, now the guy has Christian Ponder: future avg star QB of the queens. keep the ignorance coming jokester, if only for entertainment.

    So instead of trying to have an intelligent conversation, you revert back to elementry school playground namecalling because your lack of education leaves you unable to have any conversation above that of a 5th grade reading level? Ok cool.

    And it is a difference, your point was “I’ll trade a lifetime winning record and a few superbowl losses for a three decade stretch of horrible football.” implying that the Packers are a streaky team, they consistantly lose and rarely put it together and get “lucky” and win superbowls, and that the vikings are perennial contenders that just cant quite pull it together. Your use of team records was your basis for your belief, however your assumption was completely off base and the Packrers not only have consistant presence in conention for NFL championships (evidenced the thirteen titles that they have won) but that they also have a higher winning percentage than that of the vikings.

  57. By Vikingsfool on Jul 9, 2012 | Reply

    A serious conversation, ok. The difference in record is so minimal between the two teams. The Packers have won the big one many times (no dispute here). The Vikings are the NFL hard luck story. The Cubs of the NFL, it’s a hard pill to swallow. With sooo many opportunities to win it all, and some stooopid factor coming into play,
    09,01,98,87,77,75,not to mention the four superbowl losses. That’s 10 losses in championship moments. Given the difference in amount of time in the league(Packers being arond much longer than the Vikings). The teams are closely matched. Even when one of the two teams blows, the games are usually very close. For the last two and a half decades, the road to the divisional championship passed through either the Vikings or the Packers. The Vikings have fallen from grace since 09, but if history is at least a little repetitive, it won’t last for long. Even with all the big losses for the vikings, the team is usually in contention for the division, as the Packers have been ever since the Favre era. All bs aside, it is the best rivalry in the NFL. Packers-Bears may be the oldest, but Vikings-Packers is still the most heated. It’s sad that the legacy of my favorite team has been tarnished with those four superbowl losses and 6 NFC championship losses. It could be worse though, I could live in Detroit.

  58. By Vikingsfool on Jul 9, 2012 | Reply

    Guess what I’m saying is that it’s better to have played in and lossed so many big time games, rather then to have never played in them at all. One thing that I can hold my hat on is this. In the 50 years since the Vikings have been in the league, they have been in a championship position 10 times. In those same 50 years, the Packers have been there 6 (I think, The two Lombardi SB, 96,97,07? and 2010). So all bullcrap aside, you cannot deny the fact that the black and blue division has been dominated by either MN or GB. And we still have one thing in common, we hate Chicago

  59. By Vikingsfool on Jul 9, 2012 | Reply

    And I’m not saying that GB is a streaky team, Just that the long stretch from the 70′s to the mid 90′s, had to suck for Packer fans. I’m saying that I’m glad, as a vikings fan, that there have never been losing stretches that last more than 3 or 4 years at the most. I’m hoping that this one is over within the next year or two. And it should be, if you’ll notice, the Vikings are rebuilding smartly, getting younger and commiting to a rebuilding philosophy that seemed to work for you guys.

    I can’t wait until Summmer School starts so Vikingsfool will have less time on his hands. And word has it, that you used to have a Sister, but now you call her wife. You’re an idot kid! This is really Fraudian, kind of like p*nis envy, but football envy. Admit it bucko, you love the Packers, you just lack social skills, insight, intelligence, and FACTS. I’m sure that’s why real Packer fans reject you, YOU HAVE NO CLASS…

    You guys are sooo easy. Sooo easy to get under your skin. For a fan base with a winning football team, you sure are easily annoyed. If my fav team had your record, nothing you could say would about them would bother me. You Cheeseheads are so stoopid. Tis’ better to root for a losing vikings team than a winning packer team. Cheeseheads….

    When you’re a fan of the team that has won the most Campionships in NFL History,
    the rhetoric you’re trying to sell is second nature. I doubt if any of us are annoyed. Being a Champion, and dealing with your type is expected, and also complimentary. Thanks for the “strokes” hand job boy!

    Being a champion, ha. You retard cheese heads act like you are all part of this championship franchise. Your franchise owns you, sells you worthless peices of toilet paper so you can pretend like you own part of the team. Cheeseheads. If there is a more delusional fan base in the NFL, I’ve never heard of it. Stoopid cheeseheads.

    Vikingsfool, stop what you’re doing, go to a phone, call 911 and inform the dispatcher that you are decompensating and that you are in need of psychiatric treatment immediately. Be sure to bring a list of your psychotropic medications for your evaluation, and inform the Psychiatrist that you are having delusions. Once your meds are evaluated and changed, take the medication as directed, and do not miss a dose. When you are released from the psych unit, (may be a couple of months), attend your day treatment program, and see your therapist and the Doctor as scheduled. Good luck fool….

    Vikingsfool is going on about things in the 70′s.. hey vikingsfool.. guess what team has the most NFL championships ever? Packers.

    P.s. please take some basic english courses.

    How about some stats, Since 1961,
    11 NFL hall of fame Vikings
    18 divisional titles (packers have only won 11 since 1967)
    3 NFC championship titles
    1 NFL championship title
    The Packers hold a few titles, but for a team that has been around for as long as they have, to be as elite as you cheeseheads claim, should probably hold a few more. The ration of time spent in the NFL, shows the Vikings dominating the division since created. So suck on that
    Cheeseheads

    Hey fool, none of those matter! The main goal of the NFL is to get to the big dance, the Superbowl, none of those division titles mean squat. You have no Superbowl wins, and won’t for a long long time, so you sir, can suck on that. You make me laugh

    And the viqueens suck so bad they almost got kicked out of the state of Minnesota! A lot of people would have been ok with that too lol! Get a life dude

  74. By Vikingsfool on Jul 10, 2012 | Reply

    No, you make me laugh. And I agree, looking at how good the Vikings stats have been, but never winning a post merger NFL title, is a hard pill to swallow.

    You can laugh all you want, but we still have superbowl rings buddy, and that silences every sound that comes from your stupid mouth :) Seriously do you have nothing better to do than to be on a Packer blog? go fly a kite

    And you do realize that division titles mean nothing right? That’s like saying, oh I ran in a marathon, but I passed out halfway through. But I still ran it, yeah! No once cares, it means absolutely nothing, zero, nada. The ring is what matters fool

  78. By Vikingsfool on Jul 10, 2012 | Reply

    Division titles mean nothing? Um….yeah…the do. Your just annoyed that the Vikings have the best div title percentage in the NFC north. It’s still a title and the team winning it is still the div. champ. For all you cheeseheads, that means that the best team in the division is crowned champ. Therefore, the Vikings have been the best team in the division more than the Packers, since coming into the league. Just because the Packers have gotten lucky a few times, does not mean anything. And if they had to play the Vikes in the playoffs, the fudgepackers would surely lose, history proves that cheesehead. That’s right. The vikings owned the packers in the playoffs.

    lol are you dumb? NO ONE says ooooh, we are the division champs wooohoooo! NO ONE CARES about that title. I guess I would cling to that too if my team sucked as bad as yours does. All I have to say is SUPERBOWL! We won’t because we know how to build and develop, unlike the viqueens who can only splurge on has-beens. It’s okay to be jealous of the best sports franchise in the history of sports, you are just providing me with laughter, so thank you for that. Please, we have the greatest QB in the league and the best receiving corp. We aren’t smug, we are confident, there’s a difference. Something you will never have since oh yeah, no rings that’s right. SUPERBOWL I just love saying that, don’t you? Oh wait you wouldn’t nevermind. I can say it for ya though, SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL SUPERBOWL ahhhh it just feels so good saying that, because you know, we’ve won it. I can’t even tell you how much satisfaction I got out of seeing #4 ALMOST get you there and CHOKE miserably just like the minnesota way. I seriously got so much joy out of that, it was almost better than winning the superbowl ourselves. Oh wait, nope. Go on a viqueen blog, this is a place for Packer fans to support the best team in the NFL, THE GREEN BAY PACKERS! GO PACK GO!!!!!! And once again, go fly a kite, also SUPERBOWL! Have a lovely evening.

    Lol k buddy, you keep telling yourself that :) Hope it helps you sleep at night :) We are all part of the team, it’s a family aspect, not some rich owner from Germany who was ready to sell the team to a fat cat in L.A. at the drop of a hat. Hahahaha. Until the viqueens win a superbowl, they are a joke of a team and everyone knows that, even fans of them that I know lol. SUPERBOWL! Yeah just wait until Rodgers gets another ring and then see if you’ll be saying favre is better lol. Sure didn’t help you cats out! oh yeah one more thing, SUPERBOWL.

    We are certainly part of team. We have superbowl wins. We are part of the Green Bay Packers. We We We We, yes We. That’s called family, team pride. I wouldn’t say We if I were a viqueen fan either, too embarrassing. We are proud, WE are Packer fans. GO PACK GO!!!!!! Yep whatever helps ya sleep buddy, It’s special to me and US. We are a great example of fan/player interaction. All the queens want OFF the team, at least the smart ones. Oh and several players have opted to stay on PRACTICE squads rather than join the viqueens. What does that tell you? Go to your purple happy place and away from here. WE don’t care what you have to say, your comments are invalid just for being a viqueen fan. Have a lovely day!!! with love, WE, THE PACKER NATION. Hahahahaha.

    Don’t ya just love them vikings fans…not enough excitement or anything real important, or even hopeful, on their team website so they get their jollies coming over to our site…they make themselves so laughable as they fall over themselves trying to hate the Pack away. YAWN… your game is truly boring, it’s such an obvious game-plan that it isn’t even challenging. Your pre-season preparation and division championship dreams are better spent trying to convince your own purple-pals. You really do need to stroke each other’s hopes and dreams as best you can.
