    I didn't know Lombardi and Lambeau didn't get along.

    From what I understand. Lambeau really wanted nothing to do with the Packers about the time Lombardi came in to town. I am not sure, but I think the fallout had to do with Lombardi getting picked as coach or wanting full control...or something of that sort....I think!

    His family(lambeau) was the one that gave the OK to name the stadium after Curly.

    If you recall when Holmgren left there were some raw feelings between him and Packers management.

    Imagine when the founder of your team and legendary coach essentially tells the team to take a hike, he's leaving for greener pastures(like your opponents).

    Then on top of it, factor in Lambeau's desire for carousing.

    Putting it in that context, you can see how a man driven by his faith, respect for duty and generally straight-laced as Vince Lombardi wouldn't see eye-to-eye with Lambeau.

    Lee Remmel probably had a birds-eye view of this, might be worth a question to him in the Packer Historian chats.
