I went up to GB today. First time in several years. Went through the Packer hall of fame, which was pretty neat. Then watched some of the practice at 11:30am. Was a lot of the o-line blocking, and the punt team.
Watched the QBs go through drills, but Aaron Rodgers wasn’t there. I don’t know why.
It was 81 degrees and sunny, and I didn’t stay for the whole thing.

Loved things in the pro shop...but man....is it EXPENSIVE!
Even the “clearance” items were too much money for me.
Got a “100 seasons” keychain.

Great stuff Cheesey. It is sad how much merch costs. How do you grow the game when most parents struggle to buy stuff for themselves let alone for kids that will outgrown it in a year?

It was pretty good. I really liked how you could get real close to the super bowl rings. I got some nice pictures of them.
I was kind of expecting more though.

To answer your question about Rodgers, most of the "grizzled vets" get to skip this mini camp. Found it strange that even a new guy like Marcedes Lewis was allowed to miss it.

It's cool you were able to go see it. I live in DC, so I never get the chance to go up there and experience stuff like that. Will be at game Week 3 when the Skins host the Packers though. Always make sure I don't miss a chance when they come down here. Even managed third row seats for the playoff game a few years back.

A reporter said something about if you've had six years of NFL, you could skip the minicamp.

That makes sense I guess. Although, why call it “mandatory” then?
It’s just as well. Less chance of a freak injury.
Davonte Adams was out there catching passes. He didn’t come close to the stands, so I couldn’t get a picture of him. He looked good though!
I was hot just watching them. I can imagine how hot the players were. It was 81 degrees and sunny.

At one point I was out to get as much packer merchandise as possible but I've pretty much stopped buying new stuff. I still keep an eye out for vintage glassware and a few other things but he only new things I will buy are diecast cars or things I can find second hand. Thankfully they have stopped producing so much of that. When the Packer beat the Patriots in the SB there were I think 9 or 11 commemorative SB die cast items. when they beat the Steelers I think there were 3. They even stopped the annual mini semi in 2013 or 14 which is the one thing I wish they would have kept up on.

I'll still pick up a few new T shirts from Shopko or wal mart (I'd never pay pro shop prices) each year if I find quality ones I like but the pickings are very slim there as a well

Me too. I go to resale shops and outside fairs and look for deals.
The last jersey I got was about 3 years or so ago. It’s a yellow Aaron Rodgers with green lettering. It has sewn on numbers and lettering. Not a cheapo.
My wife got it for me at the pawn shop for $23. That was my birthday present. Something nice that didn’t cost an arm and a leg.
I just can’t buy things without feeling guilty at the cost. When you are on a fixed budget, you really consider everything to decide if you REALLY want it.
By the way....why do they call it a “fixed” budget? It SHOULD be a “broken” budget!LOL

I don't think it is called a fixed budget I think it's a fixed income

I hear you Cheesey. My income, my budget, my cash flow, Me...its all broke. None of it is fixed.

Here's the most recent item I really wanted but had to pass on

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Green-B...p;_trksid=p2047675.l2557

I don't think that is a bad price I just couldn't justify it.

Wow...I never even saw a glass like that one. It was pretty neat! A piece of history.

Well....like the saying goes....”money talks!”
Although all mine ever says is “good bye!”LOL

Zero2Cool (21-Jan) : If you need to look at it via SLOMO for more than 2 minutes, your rules are too difficult.
beast (21-Jan) : I sometimes think they should eliminate slow mo for fans for that reason... then deside, it's not hurting enough, keep it.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Jan) : They review PI calls in the CFL. In slow motion many calls look like PI. The fact is there were at least 3 refs looking at the play and they all botched it.
Zero2Cool (21-Jan) : Only LaFleur knows how many coaches are left. He might decide no QB coach
beast (21-Jan) : Making PI calls reviewable might just lead to more PI calls... also I wonder what Sean Peyton (maybe on that committee thinks about noncalls being reviewable
beast (21-Jan) : It all depends on how they set it up... at bare minimum ST coordinator and all the assistants. Rest might be optional/base on setup

Zero2Cool (21-Jan) : Aaron Rodgers was the only qualified NFL QB to not throw an INT on deep passes this season – despite throwing the second-most deep pass attempts this year (91).
Zero2Cool (21-Jan) : Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Dolphins plan to hire Packers run game coordinator/inside linebackers coach Patrick Graham as their defensive coordinator.

gbguy20 (21-Jan) : dyspeptic
Nonstopdrivel (21-Jan) : So aggravating and unsatisfying.
Nonstopdrivel (21-Jan) : I have the same sort of dyspeptic feeling after this game that I often had after big games coached by Mike McCarthy.
beast (21-Jan) : Also Chiefs got an INT, then the guy lined up too close...
gbguy20 (21-Jan) : you're right about the chiefs Defense. get stops on first and second then fail on 3rd and long time and time again
gbguy20 (21-Jan) : the guy is incredible

rabidgopher04 (21-Jan) : They are good, but I just don’t like them.
rabidgopher04 (21-Jan) : Chiefs looked a lot like the McCarthy Packers of old. Amazing offense and a defense that can’t get a 3rd down stop. Probably not watching the Super Bowl this year. So tired of the Patriots. They are g
