    so if a packers fan doesnt get the chance at stock because non-packer fans purchase xxx amount, then thats cool with you? i dont mind a non-packer fan buying stock, but to do so just becuase they have some bragging rights, means that technically, they should be subject to a nice shot to the groin area. :p

    And the elusive shareholder's shop in the Packers Pro Shop.

    I was at the airport today and was hearing a Chief's fan say that he might as well buy one to say he would be part owner of a team. I wanted to kick him BUT it wouldn't be worth it. I bet these are going to sell fast. And the worst thing is that it is in a down economy, that they still can do it.

    Paying for a worthless piece of paper. $250.
    Buying a ball cap to announce that you are a shareholder. $25.
    Bragging rights that you are now part of the most unique tradition in all of the sporting world. $PRICELESS!

    Go to the Shareholder meeting in July, vote on board members, but no discounts for anything. You do get the satisfaction of being a part-owner of the best team in the world! Oh, and you can log in with your Shareholder number to buy cool Shareholder stuff to wear/use to let everyone know that this team is important to you.

    It is kind of repeating what was posted, that the letter in Utah said that they plan to sell stock "on or around Nov. 15(Tuesday)". Still waiting for the firm date from the team. Wouldn't be surprised to hear an announcement before MNF. If all the hurdles have already been cleared, it would be great free advertising as it would probably be discussed ad nauseum prior to and during the game in front of the national audience.

    does anyone know the site where you're able to buy the stocks? or how exactly they're going to alert people. I'm from Canada, so It's not like i'll have access to local tv news or anything.. sorry in advance if these have already been answered

    I would think that Packers.com will make a big deal out of it and include a link to the buying address. Perhaps Packersproshop.com?

    I read that. I'm not sure if they are having this approved by the SEC, but I know during IPOs, the company is legally not allowed to talk about, offer, name a price or set up sales until the stock offering is approved. It's called the cooling off period and I believe I have read that this sale has to follow the same rules, so you probably won't hear something positive or negative until the sale is ready. It WILL happen though. 99.9% for sure right now.
