When Packers lose ... who knew?

12 posts in this topic

Nearly 50 percent more people are arrested on average at Lambeau Field when the Packers lose than when they win, according to a newspaper analysis. The Green Bay Press-Gazette analyzed arrests from 94 of the 107 games at Lambeau Field between August 1996 and January 2006. The newspaper found that when the Packers win, an average of 5.8 people are arrested, compared with 9.08 when they lose. Al Timmerman, retired Green Bay Police operations commander who formerly oversaw Lambeau Field tactics, said the difference is tied directly to the mood of the crowd. "When the Packers lost, the fans drank more and they became more unruly," he said. "When the team is losing and they're down, everyone is down in the dumps, and the beer was flowing a little bit better." When the Bears visit, arrests average 9.1 per game--win or lose.

It won't be that long, the NFL changes so much with free agency these days... thats why I won't recommend buying a players jersey! And yes, thank goodness for Longwell this year and Sharper and his bad knee, I mean Pro Bowl year last year. Did you make a prediction on how many games the pack would win this year? Doing any fishing?

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
