    Right you are...again!

    Back in the 50's, the Packers had a guard by the name of Bill Afflis.

    Not much of a pro football career, but he was a household name by the mid 50's - 60's under a new name & career. Anybody know what became of this hulk of a man?

    Ok this has nothing to do with the packers but I was wonering does anyone know when the nfl had a game in Australia? I read today that they did at some point. International games date back a ways so we might need an older fan to chime in.
