But here is your chance to become a NFL owner. The Green Bay Packers are selling common stock shares of the team. http://packersowner.com/

I believe they've always been publically owned, traded on open market.

It's about like donating to the Razorback Foundation. 

I'm no Packers fan, but it's kind of a cool bit.  It'd be hard to imagine Jerry Jones passing the hat and getting much traction with it.

You must not be a Packer fan and/or have grown up in Wisconsin. As a shareholder, you do get to vote for budget issues, boardmembers, etc.; attend annual meeting and get to buy merchandise not available to general public. Bought a share yesterday for Xmas...It's sorta like giving to the Razorback Foundation.

But now Jerry Jones and I have even MORE in common.....
I'm asking you as fans, don't give up on those players, don't give up on us, it's our program, it's the state of Alabama program...it's not one individuals program, so hang in there...

I figured I am already an asshole like Jerry Jones so why not join the club officially?

Now that I am on board I think the first thing I want to put forward is the idea that we ought to keep this Rodgers kid.

Wasn't there a Seinfeld episode where Kramer bought stock in some company and attended a shareholder meeting?
I am not claiming I am right, I am saying I don't get it.

It is a pretty cool deal.

Oddly, Green Bay is close to half the size of Little Rock.

And sucks complete ass when you have to travel to there for work in January. I actually traveled more north than Green Bay to Oconto. Sun goes down at 3pm and there's 7 ft of snow on the ground. I've never felt so lonely before and felt like I was at the edge of the world.

Even more reason to buy shares to vote against the popular plan(s).   :devil:
