    Why doesnt GB give the "owners" an option of buying a ring for themselves? I know the nfl only forks over a limited amount for rings but I dont see a reason why "owners" shouldnt have the option of paying full price for a ring. It would just be another reason why we are the greatest franchise in football.

    Thoughts? Maybe I am just in the moment right now lol

    Do individual owners of other teams get a ring?
    Do they get anything?
    Or just bragging rights?

    Interesting idea but I don't think I want that many people holding such an important symbol of the Packers history. Some would end up on ebay years from now, or worse. No thank you.

    Maybe they could issue two rings (One for the guys, the other for the ladies) and they all have to share by passing it onto another owner each week!

    I dont think many fans would fork over that much for a ring. Thats a car for most fans.

    other owners are in charge of the rings. Robert Kraft of the Pats "gave" (stolen) by Russia's Putin

    You're welcome.

    The owner of my team took two of his three rings and had them made into cufflinks. Kinda badass, in a way... :rotfl:

    I think in the Packers case the entire board of directors get rings. I was at a wedding where one of the board members was a guest and had a ring from XXXI. He was letting any random weirdo like me pass it around and try it on. Kinda sketchy in my opinion.

    Come to think of it, if I was on the board I wouldn't let myself handle the ring.

    What they COULD do is design an owner's version, a much less expensive kind, and allow that for sale. I'm an owner, and I'd buy one.

    yeah they do. Unfortunately the avg fan has little to no shot at getting on the board.

    What did it cost for a share in the Packers a few years ago? $200? No ring is coming...

    I like this idea. If I remember correctly, when the White Sox won the Series in '05, they offered replica rings to the fans. We could definitely do something like this. Maybe the diamonds be crystal instead, or something to that effect.

    I doubt they would let us buy rings, but the replica idea is a good one. Maybe at least they could let us pose with the Lombardi trophy. They could do it during the shareholders meeting, Then they make money selling us photos and picture frames. I feel this idea is cool and more workable.
