    Aaron Rodgers delivered a message to police this week. That message? Good cops need to call out bad cops. “One action by a cop doesn’t mean that every cop is unfit for duty or racist, but it gives them a bad name,” Rodgers said on Monday.

    A backlash against the National Football League’s embrace of “wokeball” is beginning to develop, with over 80 percent of season ticket holders for one team opting out for the upcoming season. Green Bay Packers team president Mark Murphy made the announcement of the fan exodus over the weekend. He blamed the COVID-19 pandemic for the formerly hardcore fans rejecting the NFL product. “The fact that that high a percentage of our fans were not comfortable coming to games was a factor that weighed into my thinking,” Murphy said in an interview published Saturday by Packers.com. Green Bay is typically the NFL’s most...

    DE PERE (WLUK) -- With the NFL releasing its schedule for the upcoming season, we now know when the Packers are supposed to be playing, but an official go ahead on fans at the games is probably still a ways off. Still, knowing what we know right now, would fans show up at Lambeau if it is allowed?

    The Packers were widely expect heavily in pass catchers during the 2020 NFL Draft given the talent depth at the position and the need to support quarterback Aaron Rodgers. But Green Bay caught many fans by surprise with its decision to take no wide receivers with its nine picks, leading to frustration. As the non-receiver announcements continued to roll in during Day 3 of the draft Saturday, the angst boiled over on social media.

    Several trophies and other sports memorabilia belonging to former University of Texas star Vince Young are now on eBay. An anonymous seller says they bought the contents of two storage units that previously belonged to Young at a semi-blind auction in Houston. “We’ve acquired 2 storage units formally [sic] belonging to the award winning, record breaking, newly inducted into the college football hall of fame, Football Star Vince Young,” the seller says in a post selling Young’s 2006 Rose Bowl trophy for offensive MVP. The “buy it now” price: $50,000. Young could not be immediately reached for comment. The seller’s...

    The foundation of the Green Bay Packers NFL football team is under fire for making a donation to the Planned Parenthood abortion business — as fans nationwide complain about its ties with a company that kills babies. Now the team is doubling down on its donating and defending it by saying the gift is meant to support the few things Planned Parenthood does that don’t involve ending the lives of babies before birth. As LifeNews.com reported, on Wednesday December 4, 2019 the Green Bay Packers Foundation (GBPF) released their annual grant fund recipients. Among the 192 grantees was #112, Planned...

    The Green Bay Packers are one of the most storied franchises in the NFL. The football team has the distinction of winning the first-ever Super Bowl decades ago, but now the Packers are gaining attention for a more dubious reason. To the consternation of pro-life Packers fans in Green Bay, Wisconsin and across the nation, the NFL team’s foundation has decided to fund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business that annually kills more than 330,000 babies in abortions. The news may prompt some Cheeseheads to abandon their support for the team until it stops financing America’s biggest abortion corporation....

    Green Bay Packers quarterback and Pro Football Hall of Famer Bart Starr passed away at the age of 85, the team announced Sunday. "We are saddened to note the passing of our husband, father, grandfather, and friend, Bart Starr," the Starr family said in a statement. "He battled with courage and determination to transcend the serious stroke he suffered in September 2014, but his most recent illness was too much to overcome. "While he may always be best known for his success as the Packers quarterback for 16 years, his true legacy will always be the respectful manner in which...

    Forrest Gregg, who earned the nickname "Iron Man" for playing in a then-record 188 consecutive NFL games during his Hall of Fame career, died Friday in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He was 85. Barbara Gregg said her husband of 59 years died from complications of Parkinson's disease. The former offensive lineman, who was a seven-time All-Pro and nine-time Pro Bowler, played 15 seasons in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys from 1956 to 1971. Legendary coach Vince Lombardi once called Gregg "the best player I ever coached."

    Former NFL player Devon Cajuste is trading the ultraphysical for the metaphysical. Cajuste, a Seaford, LI, native, who walked away from the game in January, has spent the first few months of his retirement working as a crystal healer. He’s using his arsenal of 100 precious stones and gems — worth more than $20,000 — to tap into the transcendental energy of an entirely different fan base. “Football was not my passion,” says Cajuste, 26, a towering 6-foot-4 former tight end. “The feeling that I got from [crystals] was greater than any play I made in the game.” A little...

    The longtime [Green Bay] Packers pass rusher is headed to play for the Los Angeles Rams, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation on Tuesday. Now 32, Matthews is still a weapon in the rush, but has slowed as evidenced by his 3.5 sacks in 16 starts in 2018. But he'll get a fresh start in a familiar place with a chance to help the reigning NFC champions get back to the Super Bowl.

    The Green Bay Packers asked fans to link arms during the national anthem at Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bears to show “unity.” If the footage from the song’s performance is any indication, fans largely ignored that request. Quarterback Aaron Rogers even made a personal request, saying “we’ve got to come together and talk about these things and grow as a community, as a connected group of individuals in our society, and we’re going to continue to show love and unity, and this week we’re going to ask the fans to join in as well and come together and...

    NFL had better get its act together. There is nothing to discuss. The deadbeat NFL players, "Hate America" "Lock your arms, together" has failed miserably. Packers, Q/B, Aaron Rogers earns the title of "Failed Obama Girlie Boy, Pajama Boy" as the overwhelming majority of thousands of Greenbay Packer fans rejected his request that fans lock arms to show unity with the NFL America Haters on the Packers and Chicago Bear NFL teams. The fans simply chanted unending, loudly all night long, USA, USA, USA!!! POTUS, Trump wins big time!!! There is only one road open for the NFL, the NBA...

    The Packers players wrote a long letter to their fans this week. A letter in which the team asked their fans to join them in interlocking arms during the anthem on Thursday night. According to quarterback Aaron Rodgers, this was a moment that stood for, “…equality.” As well as “…unity and love, and growing together as a society and starting a conversation around something that may be a little bit uncomfortable for people.” Well, as it turns out, most Packers fans didn’t want to have a “conversation,” weren’t interested in”growing together,” and certainly had no desire to be made “a...

    GREEN BAY, Wis. -- On Thursday night, Green Bay Packers players say they will be linking arms in unity during the national anthem just like they did at Sunday's game. And quarterback Aaron Rodgers hopes fans will do the same. "This is about equality. This is about unity … and starting a conversation around something that maybe a little uncomfortable for some people," Rodgers said. Packers fan Meghan Kempen is not a fan of the protests.

    Sports teams ask a lot of their fans, especially in places like Green Bay. Where, depending on the time of year, a fan could get hypothermia while just sitting in his seat. However, one recent request the team has made of the Pack faithful has left fans feeling a little hot. The Packers players, led by their quarterback Aaron Rodgers, issued a call to their fans to join them in interlocking arms during the national anthem. However, some fans have not taken kindly to the request. According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Packers Director of Public Affairs, Aaron Popkey, says...

    Green Bay Packers have called on fans to join in with the team and link arms during Thursday's playing of the national anthem ahead of their clash with Chicago. President Trump's latest comments on Tuesday have added to an already tense situation and players protests reached unprecedented levels at the weekend when more than 200 players took a knee during the playing of 'The Star Spangled Banner'. On Thursday, all eyes will be on Lambeau Field when the Packers and Bears face off in the first game of Week Four to see how the next stage of the protest plays...

    Is Olivia Munn upset that Aaron Rodgers hasn't proposed yet? Sources say Olivia thinks it's taking too long for her and Aaron to get engaged. And she's jealous that JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rogers are making wedding plans. Is Olivia Munn upset she isn’t engaged? Sources claim that she’s resentful that Jordan Rodgers popped the question before his brother, Aaron, did. Olivia, 36, and Aaron Rodgers, 33, have been dating since April of 2014. JoJo and Jordan Rodgers only knew each other a few months before getting engaged on The Bachelorette. Of course, that was the whole goal of The...

    For the first time since 1998, the Atlanta Falcons are going to the Super Bowl. Thanks to a beautifully dominant 44-21 beat down of the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at the Georgia Dome, Matt Ryan and Co. left no question as to which team was best. After Green Bay's 11-second, three-and-out drive to start the second half, one which included a pair of drops from tight end Jared Cook, Falcons head coach Dan Quinn was caught in a moment of rare emotion on the sidelines. He was smiling ear-to-ear before snapping back into the typical blank coaching façade we've...
