    Are the folks on here really that daft?
    Let me make this as clear as I can:
    THOSE ARE NOT PACKERS OR ANY OTHER FOOTBALL RELATED RINGS

    They are not academy rings. Most Air Force pilots don't were rings when they fly.

    Let's see, players say "Hey guys, want to take a picture with our rings on?" Pilots say, hell no.

    Tell me. Would they post a picture of a couple of pilot wearing academy rings while holding onto the throttles of the aircraft.

    Or, post a picture of a couple of pilots wearing Super Bowl rings. Which one is football oriented?

    The academy rings win out for sure.

    I suggested that they COULD be academy rings earlier, not that they WERE their academy rings. They don't look like either the one. and are probably just random rings

    I know! I know! ******* Jack Rings!

    The one on the left kinda looks like the Steelers from 2005. The one on the right? Wish we had one more picture of them. I say we just agree that know one really knows. That way we don't piss each other off more then we have to.

    Dang, I'm sorry i asked the question now. I didn't know asking it would spark this much of a debate. Oh well. Thanks for anyone who answered the question.

    Well I know they arent AF rings

    From the story..

    But even searching for that cant find anything close

    Just a reminder

    The rings as of the 13 still did not have a design for the Packers

    Wait a minute, are they doing that Thursday night SB rematch next year? Wouldn't it be funny if they presented them with the rings then? The Steelers would just love that one!

    Here's my final take on it. Since we don't know who went, or do we? The one on the left looks like the Steelers ring form 05 to me, and the one on the right looks like the Packers from SBXXXI. (Henderson's ring, maybe)

    Super Bowl 45 at NFL.com - Official Site of the National Football League

    But I could be wrong.

    I did find a little on some of the players.

    For a Vikings fan whose team has never won even one SB, you seem pretty obsessed that those could be Packers rings. Strange.

    And what part do you not get that the SB 45 rings have yet to be designed? That means that the drawing board has not even been touched yet.

    Go back and take a really really really good look at pic 4. Are you blind? If not, then come back here and report what you see.
    Whose hands are those rings on? A football player or military personal? I want an answer. Which one?
    And I don't want any "Well it could be blah blah blah."
    No.
    It's black and white.
    It's cut and dry.
    It's clear as day.
    Which one?
    Military or football player?
    (If anyone else wants to answer, feel free to do so. What do you see?)
    The proof is right there who those rings belong to.

    If you would have been just a bit more observant in Pic 4 then this thread wouldn't have had to be made.

    Sorry I made a mistake and typed 45. I fixed it for you. The rings are on military personal. Why is it so hard to believe a couple of players would let a couple of military guys try on their Super Bowl rings to take a picture. What other purpose would the pictures be there for? It's a picture series of Packer players visiting the troops. "Hey, I got a great idea, let's take pictures of the pilots over-sized rings and post them with all the other pictures."

    One of those players was an ex-Packer named Henderson, who just happened to be on the Packers back when they won the last Super Bowl in 97. And that ring on the right looks an awful lot like one of those rings. But what the hell, the pictures show who actually owns the rings. After all, it's black and white. Here I thought it was a picture of Packers players doing something nice for the troops and letting them try on the rings. But apparently Packer players don't think that way.

    Me being a Viking fan has nothing to do with the conversation.

    Henderson's I can get as he went on the trip. HOWEVER John Kuhn is NOT on the trip so it can't be a Steeler's ring as he's the only one on this team that was on that team and he's in the States. (He was in NYSE ringing the bell today)
