    It's PFT.com. Florio likes to dish gossip and dirt on the Packers. It's like a hobby to him. Remember the Aaron Rodgers thing last year?

    Yeah, but to be fair, Colledge isn't totally wrong. I do believe the former players like Cullen Jenkins, Brandon Jackson and Colledge, players that actually contributed to our Super Bowl victory, should have at least received an invite. (Barnett missed more than half the season, and therefore did nothing to help us win. I could care less if he got an invite or not.)

    That said, not only is it a logistical nightmare to coordinate travel for 3 separate players out of 3 separate cities, PLUS the whole team, but I'm sure this visit was the furthest thing from the Packers minds. To be honest, I'm willing to be they would have skipped it altogether or planned it for a different weekend if Saturday's game had been in a different location further away. The Packers focus is in preparing for the upcoming season, not celebrating.

    All in all it's just another casualty of the lockout. I'm bummed for the players like Jenkins, Colledge and B. Jackson who didn't get to go, but at the same time, they need to understand the lockout screwed a lot of things up.
