Tailgate party tickets cost $30.

    General admission tickets also will be available for $5, which includes access to the Q-and-A sessions as well as tailgate party activities. Food and beverage will be available for purchase. Due to space limitations, no general admission tickets will be available in Ironwood. 

    One hundred percent of the Tailgate Tour proceeds will benefit the hosting organizations.

  • 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.

NFL Network’s Top 10 includes one Packers player

Posted by Mike Spofford on June 24, 2013 – 4:54 pm

The NFL Network’s “Top 100 Players of 2013″ will conclude at 7 p.m. CT on Thursday with the unveiling of the Top 10.

There is one Packers player in the Top 10, and it’s obviously QB Aaron Rodgers.

The only other Packers players in the Top 100 thus far are LB Clay Matthews (No. 31) and former CB Charles Woodson (No. 85), who is now with Oakland.

Rodgers was No. 1 on this list last year and has therefore made the Top 10 for the second straight year. His ranking will be revealed on Thursday.

Update: Rodgers was ranked No. 6.

    He should be #1 again

    Aaron is the best player in football and has ben for 3 years now and should be #1

  5. By George Smith on Jun 26, 2013 | Reply

    As a devoted Packers fan I would honestly love to see Aaron at #1 once again, but what Peterson did last year was crazy. To come back from that injury and put up those ridiculous numbers was over the top, so I must put Aaron at #2 this year fellow Packers fans.

    Yeah Aaron’s one special player, and he will continue to set the high water mark for quarterback play, and I believe he has the potential to be the G.O.A.T. but the unstoppableness I saw from Peterson last year was more impressive than Rodger’s season. Hopefully Rodger’s gets number 2, and that clown Peyton doesn’t jump him.

    George Smith must die.

    I think Jordy Nelson should have been on the list based on his year.

    I believe that a number of Packers got snubbed and if I was able to do something about it I would….but at the moment I am having a little trouble and not able to make some important calls to change this issue. Anyone have some Bubblicious gum?

    Hey Scott I will take care of George Smith for you. I have experience if he must die for his comment.

    @Packer4life
    I agree with you completely.

  15. By Josh on Jun 28, 2013 | Reply

    Rodgers touches the ball every single play and is the best player in football. Peterson is an incredible player as well, but Rodgers is clearly the best player in football.

  16. By Dave Depue on Jun 28, 2013 | Reply

    Aaron Rodgers should be number 1 or 2. I could see 2 this year with what Peterson did last year but 6 is too low. In some ways I am glad he was 6 and even wished he was lower. Reason being it, means there is doubt to his level of play. We all know how he plays when people start to doubt his ability.

  17. By Got snubbed on Jun 29, 2013 | Reply

    Rodgers should have been at least no. 2. No way is he the third best QB in the league and no way is JJ Watt better the Rodgers, no disrespect to JJ. Also, Big Play Clay should have been hire considering he was third in the league in sack (I believe, but not sure). Also, Cobb and Nelson should have cracked the top 100 for sure. The NFL Network doesn’t care about the Packers or Packer Nation.

    Keep flying under the radar Aaron! That is the way you like it, right.

    Well, I didn’t see the list, hard to believe Rodgers is #6. But what is TOTALLY unbelievable is Matthews ranked #31. Maybe because of last year’s injuries?
